Countdown to Christmas 2022 with these Lavish Advent Calendars

Oh, what’s that? A cinnamon-dusted breeze in the air? As we’re turning the bend into 2022’s holiday season, what better way to count down to Christmas than with cardboard boxes upon cardboard boxes full of treats? Welcome to this season’s most luxurious advent calendars – we’re all about micro-dosing on pleasure here.

The OG advent calendar, which dates back to the early nineteenth century, saw German Protestants marking the days of Advent by candle or, ever so utilitarian, with a simple line of chalk for every passing day. And if that still works for you here in the twenty-first century, happy for you; all the merrier. Although, just for comparison’s sake, aren’t 25 compartments filled to the brim with a brand-new beauty product just a little more exciting? Or the 25-count of chocolate you’d undoubtedly add to your breakfast order through the month of December, just a little more delicious? Whatever tickles your festive fancy, the advent calendars counting down to Christmas 2022 are myriad – and much, much more fun than dragging chalk through paper. In our humble opinion.

Also, keep this page bookmarked; we’ll be adding more advent calendars as they trickle onto the market through Christmas.
