Insane Advent Calendars of 2017

When I was a kid, I loved punching open that little cardboard door and getting a piece of chocolate each day for an entire month. While I still love chocolate, I would love getting an advent surprise that’s unexpected. An iPhone upgrade is probably on your Christmas list, but an advent calendar upgrade is the thing you didn’t know you needed... until now.


Lippie Countdown

NYX has launched an advent calendar filled with 24 mini lipsticks. Their lips are sealed when it comes to what’s inside, but the calendar does include fan favorites. 24 mini lipsticks pretty much guarantees that you will find your signature shade.

12 Days of Socks

24 Days of Vodka

I’m a vodka enthusiast, but by no means an expert. This Drinks by the Dram advent calendar has 24 mini bottles of vodka, which is sure to turn anyone into a self-proclaimed vodka expert.
