Step up your Advent game with these amazing calendars.
Advent calendars these days are awesome. Gone are the little boxes with coarse chocolate or, and I’m showing my age here, just a picture of something vaguely Christmas behind a paper door. Modern Advent calendars are a seasonal gift in their own right, with little gifts behind every door.
As the entire holiday season now turns into a three-month shopping experience,is a great time to buy a discounted Advent calendar for the whole family. We’ve collected our favorite Advent offers here.
Marvel is pretty much the biggest franchise in the world right now, and this excellent Funko calendar gives you a tiny little Marvel Pop for the 24 days leading up to Christmas Day. Perfect for the MCU fan in your life.
Aside from the oddly blond baby Jesus, this nativity scene has everything you need, including wise men, angels, and cattle. The back of the box even opens to house the whole stage once you’ve opened the last door.
The Nightmare Before Christmas is an almost perfect Christmas movie. This box contains 13 amazing models from the film, so you can create a very special nativity scene based on the antics of Jack and Sally.
This calendar has a plethora of Thomas & Friends engines, including ones specially painted for the holiday season. I’m a big fan of James the Red Engine, for obvious reasons, and he looks dashing in his Christmas livery.
Like the Thomas calendar above, this box contains one pony a day to keep your little one happy. They’re small but perfect for keeping your little pony excited for the big day.
