Advent Calendar FAQ

Most people who are just getting started with advent calendars have these kinds of questions:

Do the advent calendars have full-size products?

It depends. There are a few advent calendars that will include full-size products, (See Cult Beauty Advent Calendar above) however usually in order to fit the products into a cute little advent box, many will be miniature versions.

It’s only September! Why do I need to buy an advent calendar already?

Because they sell out fast. The LEGO advent calendars are already on backorder, because the initial allotment already sold. Seriously, if you see one of these advent calendars you want, grab it now and find a safe place to hide them until December.

How much do advent calendars cost?

One of the great things about advent calendars, is you can find one in any price range. From as low as $10 to ones in the hundreds of dollars, there is literally one out there for your budget.

What kind of advent calendars are there?

Advent calendars run the gamut in the variety of their awesome daily fun. From LEGO and Funko Pop to Wine and Beauty products, literally every company and industry now sells them and has them ready to go months before you will be throwing on those sweaters.

I’m follwoing along for the cult and net a porter calendars this year I think. 🙂

Jaya

Ditto. Those are the 2 I’m gonna look out for.

If you are a costco member you can get the Lego Harry Potter and/or the Lego Avengers calendar(s) for $38 which includes shipping. They are in stock.

Kelly Wright

Oh that’s great to know. I just checked my local Costco and the Harry Potter and Mandalorian were actually only $29 in store!

Rituals has also released their advent calendar already. It’s more pricey this year ($112 instead of $70ish), but the design is more 3D than ever before and really cute! I’m waiting for now, but Rituals is one of my favorite brands and I love their advent calendars for stocking stuffers/”filler” gifts (and end up keeping a LOT of the goodies for myself, of course! :P).

Kelly Wright

This one is probably the cutest advent calendar for adults I have ever seen!

Beth In Oklahoma

I didn’t know it has been released, I purchased 2020 and loved it. Not crazy about the price increase, though. 😳

Amy in KC

I know. I don’t know that I can justify the price. I’ve purchased the last two calendars they had and loved them, though.
