Advent Calendars for the Entire Family

One of my favorite memories of the Christmas season as a girl was indulging in a small piece of chocolate every morning before breakfast thanks to my advent calendar. It was such a thrill to have sweet alongside my cereal and eggs but over thirty years later, my piece of chocolate seems not-so-special anymore. I mean, there are Advent Calendars that feature all sorts of treats, from bath bombs to Legos—even wine! I rounded up the Best Advent Calendars for the Entire Family (even your fur babies) to help you count down to Christmas in style.

Keep in mind that I’m not saying that simple chocolate-filled Advent Calendars aren’t great (I mean, you can’t go wrong with this Charlie Brown Classic). But if you want to kick things up a notch to compensate for the stressful year we have had, go right ahead!
