Are Advent Calendars Really Worth It?
In a word: yes. Even if you choose to walk into your local supermarket and buy something as simple as a Classic Cadbury, there’s something exciting about enjoying a treat every morning of the month. In terms of creating excitement for Christmas, opening the window of an Advent calendar ranks up there with choosing a Christmas tree and putting up decorations. Now, we definitely think you should buy a classic chocolate calendar, but we’re also here to recommend that you treat yourself – or someone else – to a more upscale morning surprise.
While even the sugar rush of opening makes Advent calendars worth it in our eyes, many luxury examples also promise incredible savings – just look at the Liberty Advent Calendar, which costs £245 but contains over £1,000 worth of designer goods. It’s the same story in many of these festive bundles, including Molton Brown, Missoma and Doctor Barbara Sturm. In short, investing in an Advent calendar in 2022 guarantees both a feeling of childlike excitement and very smart economies.
