22 of the best chocolate advent calendars for 2020

Advent calendars are such a part of Christmas that we look forward to them every single year, without fail. And for 2020, you can get an advent calendar with pretty much anything inside it. 

This year, for example, there’s a gin advent calendar, which was created by Philip Schofield in collaboration with the Craft Gin Club. The calendar contains 25 bottles of craft and small batch gins from across the UK. 

There’s also a great range of beauty advent calendars this year, ranging in prices from the thrifty to the blow-all-budget options from the likes of Jo Malone London, Liberty London, and Net-A-Porter.

But truthfully, you really can’t beat a good old chocolate advent calendar, and why really try when they’re so brilliant to start with?! And while classics like the Cadbury advent calendar are still around, the range of choices this year is better than ever. 

Your chocolatier brands such as Hotel Chocolat have a huge amount of choice, from simple milk, dark, or white chocolate calendars, to vegan and free-from options to luxury buys. Then there’s the quirky options from the likes of Whittard coffee, who have created a genius Hot Chocolate calendar for those who prefer to drink their choccy. 

Possibly the most exciting news is that our favourite Chateau owners, Dick and Angel Strawbridge, have launched their own chocolate advent calendars in partnership with Montezuma, presented with a gorgeous illustration of their covetable home.

But also in the running this year are chocolate advent calendars from Toblerone, Green & Blacks, Charbonnel et Walker, Chococo, Galaxy, and Reese’s. Prepare to add (more than) one to your basket ASAP.
