Advent Calendars – Not Just For Kids – They’re Fun For Adults, Too!


My children love to get advent calendars at the beginning of every December.

Advent calendars help them count down the days until Christmas. They also give them a little surprise every day so they don’t explode with the stress of waiting until their favorite holiday. However, why should children have all the fun? Here are some fun advent calendars for adults to enjoy.


Parents can treat themselves to a little drink after the kids are in bed with an advent calendar featuring alcohol. If you like wine, try Costco’s wine advent calendar. It contains 24 half bottles of wine from around the world. If you prefer beer, try a beer advent calendar from Give Them Beer. It includes 12 highly rated craft beers.
