As a child, I have fond (if not farther excitable) memories of chocolate advent calendars symbolising the “official” start of the festive season – a time when it’s totally acceptable to pester your family about your letter to Father Christmas, and singing carols (Mariah Carey) is the norm. Has much changed?
Yes! Advent calendars got all grown up! Last year we saw the introduction of the Benefit Christmas advent, and social networks everywhere (and bloggers) pretty must lost their shit. Servers were crashing and the calendars sold out before everyone even had chance to try and make a purchase.
This is hot festive property.
This year, they’re back! And my, don’t they look fun?! With 24 super-cute mini favourites, the calendars go on sale this Thursday 16 October online at benefitcosmetics.co.uk and debenhams.co.uk from 12pm – and I don’t think they’re going to hang around long! Good luck getting yours!
If you’re quick, there’s still time to enter Benefit’s competition to win one on Instagram by regramming a post and liking their account.
