The Most Extravagant Advent Calendars For This Christmas

The minute it hit 12:00am on November 1st, it was officially Christmas time for me. Yes, I’m that annoying Christmas crazy person who will genuinely drive you nuts. No really. Ask my best friend, Tasha. Even as Summer ends, I send her a message or call her saying mentioning Christmas and she tells me off. She bans me from Christmas talk until Halloween is over. Well, I take that quite literally (*evil laughing*).

I know, I know, I need to chill. But November is such a weird month – it’s in between Halloween and Christmas. That transition from pumpkin spices lattes to festive hot chocolates and not knowing which one is the right choice. But it’s also the time to get all your festive bits and bobs together, starting with the one thing that helps you to keep track of what day it is – your advent calendar.

Now we all love a good chocolate calendar that we’ve bought from Tesco’s but those aren’t the only ones around. I’ve seen countless extra af advent calendars that will give you more than a sugar rush. So I made a list, I checked it twice and I found the ones at the top of the nice list for you. (Yes, Christmas puns. These will occur from now until Christmas, I am not sorry about it.)

Here are the best extravagant advent calendars to fuel your Christmas spirit:

I have to start with this one. Okay so this is probably the most extra advent calendar ever and of course I want it. This is a good one to hint to your special someone like, “Oh, look diamonds every day, that could be my Christmas present”. Or if you really love yourself and are thinking that a super duper gift is in store, then treat yourself girl. If you want to, you even have to email the gift concierge (it's that extra) -

Dior Beauty is so luxurious and worth the investment. If you haven't already tried their products, then what are you waiting for? Get your taster with this calendar. The packaging is enough to make me buy into it. It's so gorgeous and luxe. Ugh, just don't mind me, I'll be hoping for this one.

The scents from this perfumer are everything and everyone loves a good Jo Malone perfume or candle. So when I saw this advent calendar I thought it was perfect for the perfume lover. A new scent for 24 days – makes the decision of what perfume you were going to wear way easier.

I've heard people talk about this one and now I see why! It's full of 18 full size products (and 7 samples) and it's worth over £600. So totally worth it. With everything from masks to moisturisers to candles to shampoos, this advent calendar has you covered.

Glamour x Boots - £85
I caught a glimpse of this one on Instagram and thought it was too good to miss. The products are worth £280 and you can get it for £85 - I mean, a bargain. Why? Because it's got a range of high end products from the likes of Elizabeth Arden, Fenty Beauty, Estée Lauder and more. It's got the perfect range of products that you can't say no to.

I absolutely love Soap & Glory. My favourite product is the Righteous Body Butter which I just lather myself in on a daily basis. So of course, their advent calendar is going to be on my list. With a products across the range to fill your 24 days of December, you can't say no and at the price of £31.50 at Boots - really you can't at all.

With three different options this Christmas, The Body Shop has you all set with your beauty favourites. Two of the calendars are already sold out, but this new "Dream Big This Christmas" calendar is filled with contents worth £125, which you can purchase for half the price. There's literally everything from bath to body care and a few bits for the lips in all different scents, it's truly a perfect choice!

Who doesn't love Charlotte Tilbury? Such a luxe beauty brand brings you an equally luxe advent calendar for the festive season. With a range of full size and travel size products of 12 of the brand's iconic products, this is such a great gift for the girls! And of course, for yourself.

Whilst the most talked about "£300 worth but £40 if you spend £25 in the store" beauty advent calendar is sold out, M&S have other fixes - on being this Gins Of Christmas one. If you love a gin and you're one of those people who says "f*** it, it's Christmas" as an excuse for everything, then use it with this advent calendar and just have your own party every night. (Please drink responsibly though kids!)

The online retailer is back for a second year of advent calendars, with the value of this one at over £780 and luxury beauty products across the board. It's got a mix of full size and travel size products to fill your 25 days leading up to Christmas. I mean wouldn't you love to just open up a draw and try a new product every day? Yeah I would.

Who doesn't love a good candle? Diptyque are one of those Instagram worthy must haves? I mean once you buy one, you'll take a multitude of pictures of it and then you'll save the glasses they come in as a decorative thing. Well here's your excuse to do that and get multiple of these candles plus perfume and skincare.

I have yet to shop at Space NK but I've heard such good things and here's the perfect time for me to do so. It's worth over £550, it's full of products from Drunk Elephant, Sunday Riley, Nars, By Terry and more. It's basically skincare heaven for the festive season.

Another one for the candle lovers, this Yankee Candle advent calendar is perfect for the festive season. A new scent for every night, these tiny candles will give you so much joy. I'm just looking at it and I love it. Also the box looks like a classic Christmas card, I mean...

This super cute and playfully illustrated advent calendar is filled with all your Kiehl's favourites. I think it's pretty much got everything to fill your beauty wardrobe with haircare, moisturisers, serums and masks. It's got all the brand favourites so if you're a Kiehl's lover, then this is the one for you.

Harrods is full of beauty steals and this advent calendar isn't any different. This beautiful box holds all the luxury skincare and make-up that is probably on your wishlist. So why not indulge in them all at once? 

Okay so that's my round up of the best advent calendars for this Christmas to spoil yourselves with. Which one are you picking? If I could be super extra, I'd probably be the idiot that buys herself the Tiffany one. But any of these beauty ones would satisfy me. Alongside my classic chocolate advent calendar because let's be honest, I'm not not going to have a chocolate advent calendar. It's my little sugar rush every morning. 

Lots of Love & Happy Almost Christmastime!

(Lord am I excited. I need to chill.)
