DIY advent calendars
We never really had an advent calendar growing up and I remember enviously looking at my friends cheap cardboard one with bad chocolate and wishing I had one. Now I realize that that chocolate is defintely not worth it and making your own and filling it with Godiva is where it’s at. Of course I’m saying this because I don’t have kids yet so the treat is guaranteed to go to me.

Want to make your own too? Check out 25 amazing ideas below.
