10 Favorite Advent Calendars

Choosing the perfect Advent calendar can sometimes be a difficult task. Each year, the choices seem to grow with more and more companies making their very own special calendar!  

Personally, I love handmade calendars because they are more affordable and they also offer a more original touch. However, this year has been busy and I haven’t had a lot of time to consecrate. Therefore, here is a selection of 10 favorite calendars (in no particular order) that are ideal for kids and moms. I love this tradition full of surprises that keeps kids (and adults) patient until Christmas Day!

Which one happens to be your favorite?

1. MOON PICNIC Paper City, £12.50€ – This modern advent calendar offers 24 small boxes to fit little treasures in.  This calendar is aesthetically pleasing and kids can also use their imaginations to play with them afterwards. For the small surprises, a great place to shop happens to be My Little Day.
