There’s nothing better than counting down the days of the festive season with an advent calendar and this year, the traditional has been made extra special as brands have really pulled out all the stops.
From scented candles and bottles of booze to luxurious beauty products, the advent calendar game has gone far beyond the usual chocolate treats. And one of our favourite ones this year is by high-street hero Boots.
It may only be September, but the British retailer has already restocked an advent calendar that was so popular among customers that it sold out almost immediately after the initial launch – and it’s a Disney lover’s dream.
Made up of 12 windows, each containing a special pair of ankle socks inspired by iconic Disney characters, the Disney 12 Socks of Christmas calendar is a walk down a very nostalgic memory lane. We’re talking classics like Beauty & The Beast, Winnie the Pooh, 101 Dalmations, Peter Pan, Frozen, Mickey Mouse and many others. What better what to celebrate the countdown to Christmas?
Plus, it means that unlike most advent calendars, the treats inside can be kept and worn over and over again – especially throughout the festive period. Oh, and they are of course also very useful for the cold season ahead where a warm pair of socks will be crucial for us all.
Best of all? The calendar is worth just £30 which is a bargain price for 12 pairs of socks. So whether you’d like to snap it up for yourself, your kids or a friend who loves Disney, you might to place your order immediately. We have a feeling it will be yet another sell-out success considering the number of Disney fanatics out there.
But if you miss out, don’t despair – this isn’t the only non-chocolate advent calendar to enjoy this year. In fact, there are a plethora of gorgeous options in our ultimate alternative advent calendars guide – the only problem now is deciding which one to choose before December.
