Advent Calendars are the exciting start to Christmas. When opening those doors each day you see that you are one step closer to the most magical day of the year but how do you choose which one to buy? There are so many out there from the traditional chocolate calendars to the more expensive beauty calendars to choose from that I decided to give you my top 5 for him, her and the kids. Let’s start with the top 5 calendars for him. Just click on the pictures to take you directly to the calendar to buy it ( affiliate links are included)
Men are notoriously hard to buy for so I’ve done a little bit of searching for you to save you the trouble , here are my top 10 advent calendars for him.
1. 24 days of bearded treats
Beards are quite the thing at the moment, anyone who’s everyone has one ( although I like to keep mine trimmed 😉 )
The bearded man company have bought out this fab calendar where behind each door is a different beard oil to make sure that your beard smells and looks amazing.
2.The Brew Company Coffee Calendar
Now this is my kind of advent calendar let alone one for the men. Each day you get a nice cup of coffee to start your day and each sachet tells a story from Santa himself! To make the coffee, you need to open the ‘brewer’ bag, pour hot water inside the pouch, let it brew for 4 to 6 minutes and serve. NB: this calendar lasts longer than usual ones, since you can reuse the Coffeebrewer bags.
3 Sous Chef The Big Chilli Advent Calendar
This one is perfect for anyone who likes to cook. Each day you are presented with a different chilli and it also includes a recipe book to show you what you can do with the chilli you get! I’ve written a full review of this if you want to take a look here
4 Munchkings Gourmet Nuts and Savoury snacks
For those who prefer snacky thing to chocolate this is perfect. It contains 8 Different types of snacks for the 24 windows, 5 suitable for Vegans.
Including Smoked Paprika Coated Peanuts, Corn Combo mix, Chocolate Peanuts & Yogurt Raisins, Hotel mix, Smoked Almonds, Chilli Coated Peanuts, Wasabi Peanuts and Honey Peanuts
5. Craft Beer Advent Calendar
My brother actually told me about this one not long ago and said how much he enjoyed it. If you care about drinking good beer (or know someone who does) then it doesn’t get better than this festive beer hamper.
So there you have my top 5 advent calendars for men, I wasn’t aware until I started this just how many different calendars there are out there. It’s quite amazing how far they’ve come from the days of just opening a piece of cardboard with a little picture behind it ( showing my age now right? )
Let me know what advent calendars you are getting this year and if there are any you would like to recommend 🙂
