Non Food Based Calendars

There has been an explosion of all different types of Advent Calendars this year, everything from wine and beer to jewellery and toys. I think it’s all a bit crazy. For kids though, I do like the idea of the treats being non-food based but it’s definitely going to cost you more. 

Lego Advent Calendars

Lego have cottoned on to the Advent Calendar idea many years ago and each year release a few sets with lego gifts behind each door. They usually retail between €20 and €30. If I was to splash out for the boys these are the ones I’d get for sure.

Aldi Activity Books

They have lovely advent activity books in Aldi with 24 different puzzles. The boys got these last year from their Aunt and loved them. I imagine my 9 year old might be too old this year but I’ve got them one each all the same.

Smiggle Calendars

Smiggle is a stationery shop with amazing scented pencils and school supplies and they have a lovely Advent Calendar out this Christmas. I am a stationery addict myself and I think I’d love this one.

Aldi currently have these Toy Calendars in their special buys. At €10 each they are probably the cheapest toy ones you’re likely to find.
