If nothing else, they are a visual reminder to make each day special. Since it’s November 1st, now would be a good time to start planning an advent calendar if you’re going to have one this year. These 25 options range from intricate hand-made beauties to simple and straightforward options you could put together with things you have on hand the night before December 1.
