Top 10 Advent Calendars You Can Buy Now And Save For December
SAVVY shoppers have already spotted Christmas advent calendars for sale as they get their handbags ready for the expensive holiday season.
From Haribo, Cadbury’s and Percy Pigs to Lego and Beauty Box options, we’ve rounded up ten Advent calendars available for purchase right now.
While seeing Christmas products on the shelves in September might seem a bit premature, you can use it to your advantage.
We spend an average of £ 420 on gifts as Christmas approaches, according to eBay.
And that’s before all the decorations, parties, and festive food.
So it is undeniable that December is an expensive month and that many are often left behind until January.
Add a pandemic to the mix and it’s no surprise that so many of us are feeling the pinch in our wallets ahead of this year’s Christmas festivities.
Planning ahead and spreading costs out by December is a great way to reduce the financial pressure on the holiday season.
We’ve found chocolate calendars for as little as £ 1, but there are all kinds of different options to choose from.
Some are currently on offer so you can also save money if you buy them now rather than waiting until the end of November.
Here we take a look at the top ten calendars currently on sale.
