Top 10 Advent Calendars Of 2019

By Louise Garay

Do you love the idea of pampering yourself (or your loved ones) as well as opening a little present each day? If you do, you must know that advent calendars are the ultimate gifts that keep on giving. Apart from holding a number of surprises, these gift boxes also allow you to countdown the number of days before Christmas in a fun and exciting way.

As children, you may have grown up with homemade or store-bought advent calendars that your parents have given you and your siblings. Normally, these are the calendars and that are filled with sweets and chocolates. While these are still very much in demand today, you might be hankering for another type of sweet ending.

Because of the increasing popularity, many brands and companies are jumping onto this trend and making advent calendars of their own. The catch? These can cost more than a hundred bucks. Let's look back on the most luxurious, and most expensive, advent calendars of 2019.

Designed with winter-resistant florals, this collection includes the brand’s iconic goods.
