Advent calendars have been an integral part of the countdown to Christmas for many years. Originally, families would mark each day of December in the run up to Christmas day with chalk, but it wasn’t until the 1900s a German creator came up with the idea of the advent calendar. Fast forward a century and you’ll be hard pressed to find a household without an advent calendar to count down the festive period.


Although advent calendars may be associated with children, there are plenty of options on the market for adults. Luxury advent calendars have become increasingly popular over recent years, with most brands offering 12- or 24-day options filled with delicious treats and high-quality products.

From top shelf rums to gold jewellery and crystal ornaments, shop our round-up of the best luxury advent calendars for Christmas 2021.
