    Default Advent calendars for grown ups

    Has anyone ever bought themselves one to celebrate Xmas?

    I've been eyeing off these two:

    And this one (not specifically an Advent calendar, but similar concept):

    Would love to hear about any other cool ones that are available!

    Also, would you feel a bit guilty indulging in such a purchase? Strangely I do

    Happy socks have one.

    I’m sure I saw some that had bath bombs, facemasks and the like. Can’t remember where from.

    Default Advent calendars for grown ups

    Yes last year I got this one from Mecca, and it was full of mini make-up goodies, loved it! I didn’t peak either, was lovely to get a surprise everyday and this year I want to get a Loccitane en Provence one. IMG_1671.jpg

    I’ve found a few interesting ones googling.

    Tiffany co have one but for $100k I doubt many will get it.

    Also love honey make a very adult one with toys and things.

    I'm thinking of getting one of these as I absolutely love their products.

    Eta: In answer to your question about 'guilt' Mod-Degrassi yes I do feel guilty when I treat myself, but I remind myself that nine times out of ten I buy things for the kids or DH, so one treat at Christmas is okay. :-)
