BEST MODERN | Garnet Hill Abacus Advent Calendar
Garnet Hill Abacus Advent Calendar’s Rankings
- #1 Best Modern
If you’re already sick of the materialism surrounding the holidays, you might be reluctant to give small treats every day leading up to Christmas. And that’s why we love this new decorative piece from Garnet Hill, designed to count down the days like an old-fashioned abacus. Young toddlers will probably be tempted to move more than one block a day, but it’s definitely more attractive than some of the more traditional advent calendars.
