[ 1 ] The Body Shop Advent Calendar is one of our top picks this Christmas. It is absolutely HUGE, very sturdy and comes jam packed full of gorgeous goodies, including some of their new Christmas products in Frosted Cranberry, Glazed Apple and Vanilla Brulee. These sell out super-fast, so you need to get your orders in quickly if you want to get your hands on this bad boy! When you open each door in December, you can expect to find some seriously cute surprises as it has £83 worth of gorgeous goodies inside for its £50 price tag. get it in store, online www.thebodyshop.co.uk or order from your local The Body Shop At Home consultant!
[ 2 ] With beauty fans everywhere expected to rush to get their hands on this exciting No.7 edition calendar make sure you’re front of the queue! Following the success of last year’s début bestseller the NEW No.7 Beauty Calendar, priced at £35, (worth £130) is available from 29 October in selected stores and on boots.com (delivery charges may apply). We are beyond impressed with the packaging of this one. It has a beautiful rose gold themed design and the products inside are, quite frankly, amazing for such a reasonable price tag. This is hugely coveted and gives some of the designer brands a serious run for their money. A real winner in our eyes!
[ 3 ] Yankee Candle Advent Calendars are a true thing of beauty. Ok so they may not contain beauty products as such, but these would be a welcome addition to any home and think of how gorgeous your house will smell, every single day in the run-up to Christmas if you get your hands on one of these beauties! Yankee Candle have released two advent calendars this year and each contain a selection of their best loved fragrances and the new winter scent collection.
The wreath shaped design (£21.99) houses a selection of tealight candles and the fabulously festive Christmas cottage (£24.99) holds similar but with a really cute design that would look lovely out on display!
