They Are Here! The Most Beautiful Advent Calendars of the Season!

Last year I put together a list of some of my favorite Advent Calendars but unfortunately, many of the ones I had wanted to share were already sold out. Every year they go quickly! In August when I shared a post about a book I was purchasing and a few gift ideas I had for Christmas, Barbara kindly left this comment on that post. Thanks so much for the reminder, Barbara! I’m getting this post out early this year to beat the rush and while the Calendars are all still in stock.


The Advent Calendars I’m sharing today are mostly beauty-themed although there are a few surprises in the mix. I’ve even included a few for the kiddos and one that’s geared toward the guys.

Kiehl’s Advent Calendar

I am a big fan of Kiehl’s skincare. In the past, I’ve purchased their lotions and lip balms. Recently I purchased their Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate that had great reviews. It’s a bit pricey so I purchased it HERE where they had it available in a small size for $22.

A tiny bit goes a long way so that was a perfect way to give it a try without spending a lot. I really, really like it and will purchase it again when it runs out. I’m not sure how it works but I definitely see a difference when I use it. It’s almost like a blurring effect that smooths out the wrinkles. That’s the best way I can describe it. Since I don’t wear a lot of makeup a tiny bit goes a long, long way, so I expect it to last a long time.

I was super excited to see that Kiehl’s as an Advent Calendar out this year–a great way to try a lot of their products! The really cool thing about so many of the Advent Calendars I’m sharing today is if the products were all purchased separately, they would end up costing a lot more, so this is a great way to try a lot of different products by a brand at pretty big savings! Love that! The Kiehls Advent Calendar ends up being around here a 60% off savings. You’ll find it on sale here: Kiehls Advent Calendar.


Molton Brown Advent Calendar

Are you familiar with Molton Brown? They are a British brand and all their products are made in England. They have a beautiful Advent Calendar out and the description says. “a celebration of fragrances, body and home delights.” You’ll find this Advent Calendar available here: Molton Brown Advent Calendar.



L’Occitan Advent Calendar

L’Occitane has an Advent Calendar out this year! I’ve purchased their luxury hand soaps and they are really nice. You’ll find it here: L’Occitane Advent Calendar.


Charlotte Tilbury Advent Calendar

Every year Charlotte Tilbury creates a knock-your-socks-off Advent Calendar. If you’re a fan of her lipstick and other beauty products, this is definitely the Advent Calendar for you! I can see why these beauty Advent Calendars are so popular every year–just look at the size of the products that are included! The Tilbury Advent Calendar is one that sells out quickly every year, so get it before it’s gone. You’ll find it available here: Charlotte Tilbury Advent Calendar.

Pre-Teen/Teen Beauty Calendar

Do you have a pre-teen or teen in your family? I don’t but I wish I did because I would totally buy this Advent Calendar! It’s also priced really reasonably. It’s available here: Beauty Advent Calendar for Teens.


Rituals Advent Calendar

I’m not familiar with Rituals beauty products but their Advent Calendar is beautiful! If you are a Rituals fan or have been hoping to try their products, you’ll find their Advent Calendar here: Rituals Advent Countdown to Christmas Calendar.Beauty Advent Calendar


Wedgwood Advent Calendar

This calendar is a bit over the top but I had to include it because it is stunning! If you’re a Wedgwood lover, you will love this Advent Calendar! Imagine opening up a piece of Wedgewood every morning during the month of December! Not sure my heart could take it! It would be so hard to not peek at the next day’s treasure! You’ll find this beautiful Advent Calendar here: Wedgwood Advent Calendar.


Dior Advent Calendar

Every year Christian Dior creates a beautiful Advent Calendar and it always sells out long before December. I wouldn’t be surprised if it doesn’t sell out before Halloween–it’s that popular every year! It is beautiful and packed with all their most popular beauty products, lipsticks, and perfumes!


If you’ve been wanting one of these iconic Advent Calendars but keep missing out each year, they are currently still available here: Christian Dior Advent Calendar.


La Mer Advent Calendar

Any La Mer beauty fan out there? I’ve heard so much about LaMer, though I’ve never tried any of their products. I’m completely intrigued with this calendar, though! I would never want to through the calendar itself away, such a gorgeous Advent Calendar! You’ll find this beautiful Advent Calendar here: La Mer Beauty Advent Calendar.


Wine Advent Calendar

There aren’t a lot of Advent Calendars out there for the guys so I wanted to include this one since it would work for the guys as well as the girls. How fun would it be to try a different wine every evening with dinner or in front of a cozy fire during the month of December! This would be an awesome door prize or Secret Santa gift! You’ll find it available here: Wine Advent Calendar.



FAO Schwarz Dinosaur Advent Calendar

I think I’m going to do a separate post for Advent Calendars that would be great for children but I wanted to share this one by FAO Schwarz now because I think it’s pretty special! I have a feeling it will sell out quickly. The description says that this Advent Calendar “features gifts that range from fossil excavation to egg hatching to volcano creation.” What a fun, fun calendar–I know my grandsons would love this one! You’ll find it available here: Dinosaur Advent Calendar.


This One’s for the Guys!

Here’s one that’s geared toward just the guys! It features lots of beauty and grooming products that I think any man would love. You’ll find it here: Advent Calendar for Men.


The holiday season is upon us and I, for one, am definitely ready for some fun!

Happy Advent Calendar shopping!

  1. Thanks, Susan! Every year the calendars are sold out before I think to look for them. I just purchased two of the pre-teen ones for my nieces, and they were half price…yay! My favorite ones are the Fortnum & Mason ones with little tins of tea, not sure if one will be in my budget this year. 😉

    • I love the Fortnum & Mason ones too. I think you fill those yourself each year, is that right? I need to look at those again…they are really pretty! There are quite a few food/tea/edibles Advent Calendars out there. I need to do a post featuring all the yummy ones. lol

  2. The Bonne Maman advent calendars sell out very quickly and would be nice for an individual or a family. 24 little jars of their fabulous jams, and many of the flavors are not available in the US, only in France! Order directly from Bonne Maman or Amazon. Neiman Marcus may also carry them. One of my favorite gifts to receive ever!

  3. WOW! LOVE all those Susan! Thanks a million for reminding us so early – I’m not sure I can live without that Wedgwood one! 🙂 Happy Friday!

  4. Mary from Virginia says

    This is how out of it I am, I never realized so many companies created Advent calendars. These are beautiful and fun.

    • Don’t feel bad, Mary–I just discovered them all a few years back. I only knew about the chocolate ones. I bet more and more companies have come to realize how popular they are, so there are lot of them now.

  5. Thanks for the post, now to narrow down the selections! FYI The Bonne Maman advent calendar is available on the World Market web site with free curbside pickup at one of their stores.

  6. Oh my goodness, Susan. When Barbara mentioned Advent Calendars, I literally thought she meant beautiful Advent Calendars, perhaps by someone like Jackie Lawson. I’ve never even heard of this type of ‘advent calendar,’ lol.

    Perhaps I should move out of my cave. (But it’s so cozy.)

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
