3 Advent Calendars so lovely

"advent calendar christmas 2011"

I was away on holiday when one of my regular readers contacted me looking for some advent calendar recommendations.  I had planned to do a post on advent calendars but had completely forgotten that time was running out… that’s what holidays do to you!  I know I’m still a bit late but I thought I would share my finds anyway especially since today is advent Sunday (also thanks Juliet for the reminder).  I’ve come across 3 that I love very much so they’re the ones I bring you today:

1.  These gorgeous little numbered boxes are by Noix de Coc.  Each has a wooden handle which means they can even be hung up.  The boxes can be customised by your kids who can paint, draw or sticker them and you can fill them with whatever little goodies you like.  They’re available from smallable.com

2.  I was browsing the lovely Paul et Paula blog where I spotted this advent calendar.  It was instant love.  Made up of lots of little boxes covered in pretty paper, you get a pack of frosted sweeties and a little Nina doll silhouette that can perch atop the boxes.  There’s also a special surprise gift for the 25th.  This advent calendar is sold in extremely limited numbers… just 10 available and it’s from The Kidsboutik.

3.  Last are these drawstring bags with matryoshka dolls.  I have a big soft spot for these Russian dolls so I was instantly drawn to this advent calendar when I saw it.  These can be hung up and filled with little treats or tiny toys.  Also sold in extremely limited quantities, just 6 available, they’re from Thymbyl Designs on etsy.

Have you seen our 2011 Christmas gift guide?  There are lots and lots of gift ideas for the kids.

      No problem at all – it was my pleasure! I only found the other 2 after I came back and was going to email you but then realised that you’d see the post anyway as a subscriber. xx
