Christmas will soon be upon us again, and it is time to take a look at the advent calendars on offer for 2016. This year I am looking at something a little different to the usual chocolate advent calendars. Whether it is make up, Lego or chocolate that you are after, here are some of the best advent calendars of 2016.


lookfantastic-advent-calendarThis Lookfantastic advent calendar is top of my wishlist! Although it costs an eye watering £70, behind each door there are deluxe samples and full sized products, including hair care, skincare, body care and make up products worth over £300. It makes a great pre-Christmas treat for someone, and last year it sold out within just 2 weeks. Even Zoella loved last year's design! Click here to pre-order your Lookfantastic advent calendar.


Boots have announced their No7 Beauty advent calendar and it promises to be a good one. Not only do you get contents worth £151.95 for just £39, you will also get 3 Limited Edition make up brushes with your order. There is an amazing selection of luxurious skincare and gorgeous makeup treats waiting to be revealed behind each door.

  1. I’ve never seen a lego advent calendar before, I bet that will be a complete sell-out. The Boots one is a stunning bargain, I see it has sold out and I’m not surprised. I love advent!
