Get Ready, Set, Advent!

By Aylin Bilgin, Nov 10


As kids it was ingrained in us that advent calendars were the only way to countdown to Christmas. Something about the excitement of waking up each morning to a treat really has us feeling nostalgic. Although the 99¢ stale chocolates are no longer appealing, the improved and grown-up versions are much more enticing! 
Just for you, we’ve gathered up some of the CORE’s best calendars this season that will be sure to have you waking up extra early to open a window for your treat of the day!

Shoppers Drug Mart

$86

This ARTDECO advent calendar is filled with amazing products for your face and skin. Open up each window to find things like eyeshadow, powder lip finish. green tea lotion and even some extra application tips. Of course its also packed with selected special items, so you’ll just have to purchase one to find out whats inside! An added perk? It opens like a storybook so you can dispay it on your shelf as an added decoration in your home.

L’OCCITANE

$69

As one of our favourites, this one is perfect for your mom, aunt, sister, or any other important woman in your life. It will have her feeling like she’s basking in the south of France with all their dreamy, creamy products that smell so fresh. They even offer a luxury calendar if you choose to go that extra mile. We also recommend purchasing one and using all the individual products as stocking stuffers for everyone in the family.

 

Land & Sea

$19.95

This one is for all the creative junkies on Christmas. Why not make your own advent calendar? With the help of Land & Sea creating this super cute package, it is filled with paper bags for each day, and some clips so you can hang it up on your wall. It works as a cute project, home décor, as well as personalized gifts you know your loved ones will be happy to have. We suggest filling these with some lip balm, chocolates, gift cards and anything else small that would get people looking forward to peeking inside and discovering each new day. You can even opt for stuffing in love letters, photos with written memories on them, or maybe even an engagement ring for the very last morning as something that much more sweet and special.

 

The Body Shop

$99

This advent calendar sure packs a punch with all its juicy products. It even doubles as a game where each box of each day has a puzzle on it. Solve the puzzle, open the gift! It’s an even more fun way to open gifts each day. Some goodies inside include an almond milk and honey body butter, lip definer, frosted berries shower gel, gold glitter dust, and even a cute little bunny headband. Hop to it and buy this before it sells out!

Indigo Spirit

$49.99

If you’re looking for a kid-friendly calendar, your search is over. What child wouldn’t love a Star Wars themed Lego advent calendar? Open each door and collect all the vehicles, starships and characters. It even includes a playmat where they can start battling it out once all pieces are collected. Kid-friendly. Yoda approved.
