The Christmas countdown is an exciting time for everyone, especially children. Advent calender’s definitely help build this excitement. When I was little we had advent calendars that had a different picture behind every door. Then came the chocolate advent calendars that are still very popular today. Over recent years advent calender’s have grown in the contents that they contain. This year I have decided to look at some of the different non-chocolate advent calendars available on the market. The first advent calendar I decided to review was the Smiggle* Advent Calendar.
About The Smiggle Advent Calendar
Smiggle is a very popular stationery shop. Due to the children’s ages we are yet to discover the full delights of the range. I’m sure it would have been my favourite shop to stock up on school items when I was younger. I’m sure it will soon become our little lady’s go to stationery shop.
The Smiggle advent calendar is full with 25 days of limited edition Smiggle stationery surprises. It also comes with a lucky ticket. It gives 25 lucky winners the chance to win a £500 Smiggle shopping spree voucher. The calendars retail at £25 each. If you order one from the website you will also have to include postage costs on top of the retail price.

My Thoughts On The Smiggle Advent Calendar
I really loved this advent calendar. It really is a calendar for all ages. As a mum nearing 40 there were only a few items in this calendar that I wouldn’t use myself. As a teenager at school everything in this calendar would have been used and proudly showed off each day. At £25 I really do think it this calendar is good value for money. I don’t think you will be disappointed if you decide to purchase this calendar for a family member or even yourself!
