The Best Non Chocolate Advent Calendars  |  Review & GIVEAWAY

Remember being a child and the excitement you’d feel every morning in December knowing you got to open the next door on your advent calendar? Scratching off that bit of silver foil and unveiling a small, usually bad tasting bit of chocolate? It was so exciting but as with all things advent calendars have grown and changed and now there is a huge range of non chocolate calendars on offer. This is great if you or your child has any allergies or if, like me, you just like the idea of doing something different. There are so many different calendars on the market now that it can be a bit overwhelming trying to find one that is right for you or your family but fear not... I’ve searched around to find the best non chocolate calendars out there!

For him... 

The Big Chilli Advent Calendar 2018 - Sous Chef £29.95

This calendar is perfect if you have a man who loves cooking and who loves a bit of heat. My hubby is that man and this is such a different and novel calendar without being so novel that it is full of stuff he won’t use. The calendar includes 25 different chillis, powders and flakes along with a booklet explaining each chilli and over 20 mouth watering recipes. So if you want to explore the chillis of the world this December and heat up your Christmas then this is the advent calendar for you!


For her... 

Yankee Sparkle Wreath Advent Calendar - Yankee Candles £24.99

I am a sucker for a scented candle especially if it is from Yankee as their candles are just the BEST. Their festive range is always divine and with their advent calendars you can have a little sample every day of some of their Christmas range. The calendar includes 24 tea light candles and the added bonus of a glass tea light holder meaning your home can smell like a winter wonderland all December long!

Fancy getting your hands on your very own Sparkle Wreath Calendar from Yankee? Well I’m giving one if my lucky readers the chance to win one! All you need to do is click the box below to find out how to enter.





Lookfantastic Advent Calendar- lookfantastic.com £79.00

So this may seem a little steep for an advent calendar but this calendar is actually amazing value for money because the beauty treats inside are actually worth a whopping £300!!! From tanning to skin care, make up to hair tools...this calendar with help you look and feeling amazing this Christmas.

For kids - 

Paw Patrol Advent Calendar- Argos £15.00

This type of calendars are perfect for kids in my opinion as they get so excited about which character or item they are going to get each day. Last year Pickle had the Peppa Pig one and this year he has picked a Paw Patrol one and I know he is going to love it. It’s a brilliant alternative to giving him a piece of chocolate and he can play with the figures he gets all year through so it’s a calendar that keeps on giving!

Lego Star Wars Advent Calender - John Lewis £20.00 

If you have a Lego fan in then this calendar is a must have! Hubby actually had this last year and he loved it. Each day you get a little bag of Lego that you can build into the next part of your Star Wars scene and when it gets to the end you then have a whole load of brand new Lego to add to your collection.

Note: some of these items were sent to us for the purpose of this post but all opinions are honest and my own.
