I keep thinking that I must organise myself into getting one of those lovely Advent calendars which have empty pockets or boxes to fill with little treats for each day of the run up to Christmas. But I'm not sure I could think of 24 little (non-chocolate!) gifts at the moment, maybe it would be an easier tradition to start when the girls are older. Do any of you do this? If so, what do you put in the drawers/pockets?
There are so many lovely designs out there, here are just a few I have been looking at on the Treasurebox website:
There are of course the Father Christmas, snowman and Rudolph hanging calendars which you see everywhere, although often not nearly as nicely made as these felt versions:
Then there are then these lovely handmade wooden calendars which look as though they have very well-sized drawers I must say, maybe that would help with my dilemma!
They also come in beautiful shaped versions, like this train and sleigh. Such a beautiful decoration to have around at Christmas-time too!
And finally, this handmade Gold & Silver Wooden Santa's House Advent Calendar is definitely the most elaborate, and equally gorgeous as a train!
Actually that's now two dilemmas - which designs to choose and what to fill the drawers with! Oh dear.
So, tell me, which would you buy, and what would you fill the 24 drawers with?!
