Advent calendars have been a staple of the festive season for as long as we can remember – but they’ve certainly come a long way since the days when the windows hid a small figure fashioned out of chocolate milk.
Here are three pretty amazing and rather unique advent calendars that we came across on amazon.de. The best part is that they also ship to Malta!
The Bosch Advent Calendar: Who said advent calendars had to be about chocolate or beauty products? The Bosch Advent Calendar 2023 comes with 28 tools that range from ratchets to screwdrivers, and folding knives to drill bits. What we particularly love about it is that the calendar comes with a storage case, so you can fill it with the tools you unbox each day of advent – genius. This one retails for €54.99 (+ €17.42 delivery to Malta).
National Trust’s ‘Tis The Season: While most advent calendars are about objects, the National Trust’s ‘Tis the Season advent calendar actually comes with a Christmas poem written by Richard Jones and a flap depicting a super cute scene to open every day. This is honestly one of the sweetest we’ve ever seen, and perfect for any child who loves reading. The board book is currently priced at €17.99 (+ €8.36 delivery to Malta).
Hallingers’ Bath Salt Advent Calendar: This 24-day advent calendar offers you the chance to indulge yourself through its gorgeous and colourful mix of Dead Sea bath salts that can be used in bathtubs, jacuzzis, or as body scrubs. Scents include Green Tea, Exotic Mango, Bergamot, Lemongrass, and Pink Grapefruit, and will make a wonderful addition to anyone’s self-care routine. At €59.50 (+ €24.90 delivery to Malta) this is quite pricey but do keep in mind there’s almost a kilo of bath salts in there (840g to be exact).
