Christmas will soon be upon us again, and it is time to take a look at the advent calendars on offer for 2017. Whilst a chocolate advent calendar is always a firm favourite, 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 my favourite advent calendars of 2017.
Yankee Candle Advent Calendar
Would it even be Christmas without a Yankee Candle Advent Calendar? This triangle advent calendar is jam packed with 23 tea lights and one votive candle in some gorgeous scents including All Is Bright and Christmas Cookie.

Santa head Christmas Countdown

Beauty and the Beast Advent Calendar
This has to be one of my favourite advent calendars this year – the Beauty and the Beast advent calendar from Mad Beauty. Filled with beauty products with gorgeous Beauty and the Beast designs, this is a really cute advent calendar. The only downside is that it only has 12 doors to open, but the products are so cute!
The Beauty and the Beast advent calendar is curently sold out at Superdrug (and you don't want to pay the crazy prices on Amazon!) but the good news is that I have one to give away! You will find the competition at the bottom of this blog post.
Pet advent calendars
We can't forget our furry friends this festive season, and Sainsbury's have reasonably priced pet advent calendars on sale.
A small tip though – your furry friends don't know that it is advent, and you get around 72g of treats for them. You might want to consider spending the money on a full size bag of treats for them – they will get a lot more treats that way.
Mad Beauty advent calendar
If you love beauty products and getting a bargain then the Mad Beauty advent calendar is for you. Jam packed with 24 beauty treats, you will get a selection including lipsticks, eye shadow, lip stains and other beauty must haves, including accessories. With two designs to choose from (pink and gold), this makes a great alternative to chocolate this festive season!
Reverse advent calendar
If you are looking for something a little different to do this year, why not get involved in the Reverse Advent Calendar? The Reverse Advent Calendar is a way to put aside food, toiletries and other essentials to those who are struggling over Christmas and into the new year. Instead of opening an Advent Calendar, simply pop an item into a box for a food bank, then deliver it before Christmas. This is a great chance to help others in need and do something to give back this festive season.
Haribo Advent Calendar
Is it even Christmas if you can't enjoy sweets? The Haribo advent calendar is filled with 300g of delicious Harbio sweets for you to enjoy in the run up to Christmas.
Advent calendars in Poundland
Of course this wouldn't be a blog post by myself if I don't mention Poundland's advent calendars. They have chocolate calendars available with a wide range to choose from.

I am really excited to be giving away not just a Beauty and the Beast Advent Calendar, but also other bits from the range.
