Halloween hasn’t even arrived yet, and we’re somehow already feeling the annual “Christmas creep.” But you know what? I am here for it. ALL OF IT.

Bring on the Hallmark Christmas movies. Try and sell me your weird upside down Christmas trees. I will also accept all of the advent calendars; because apparently, they are no longer just for kids. Nope. Adult-only advent calendars now help you count down to Christmas with all your favorite things — from cheese to wine to sheet masks.

Scroll on for just a few of our favorites.
