Christmas Advent Calendar Gift Ideas

Christmas advent calendar gift ideas

This year I wanted to try a different type of Christmas Advent Calendar, an Advent Calendar where I can choose the gifts the little lads receive each day on the count down to Christmas!

I found this adorable Christmas Advent Calendar in Homesense for only £12.99 it's so well made that I'm hoping it lasts for years and years becoming one of our Christmas traditions. Now I have the Advent Calendar what Christmas gifts to fill it with? I've decided to do a mix of sweetie treats, small toys and Christmas activities/days out. 

Sweet - On some days I will fill the little pockets with Christmas themed sweets - chocolate coins, candy canes and chocolate covered raisins (reindeer poop! Tiger will find this hilarious!)

Gifts - You could shop around for small pocket sized toys or you could just shop at Hawkins Baazar, they have a 'Pocket Money' section which is full of small cheap toys. I've chosen a few of my favorites below, prices vary from 35p - £3.  If you don't fancy small toys how about little Christmas tree decorations your little ones can hang on the tree, special baubles that are different from all the rest.

Christmas Activities/Days Out - This is a great way to get organised with Christmas Activities or Days Out throughout December. I will slip a homemade Christmas activity card and chocolate coin in the pockets "Make a Gingerbread house or Visit Santa" then fill the day around it and on the 24th make a card saying "Check under your bed" you can then pop the Christmas Eve Present/Box there for them to find. I think this is a lovely way to build up to the main event!



  1. I love how you've included days out in the advent calendar, very cute! x

    1. Thanks its just a brilliant way to get organised, each year I promise to take the little lads to Winter Wonderland and each year December flies by without us visiting! This year its already booked in via the advent calendar! x
