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.
1. Kiehl’s Limited Edition Advent Calendar
If a box full of your favorite Kiehl’s products sounds like Christmas come early, then this “advent calendar” of sorts is right up your alley — and will have your skin glowing by the New Year.
2. English Tea Shop Advent Calendar
Fancy a spot of tea? This quaint little advent calendar will remind you to pour a warm and cozy cup of herbal goodness for yourself every day. (And hey, maybe you’ll even get a few sips in before it goes cold while you’re chasing the kiddos around.)
3. La Maison Du Chocolat Advent Calendar
Attention, chocolate lovers: This one’s for you. Just pop each tiny door of this advent calendar open to reveal a different delicious chocolate inside each day — and enjoy. From milk chocolate almonds to flavored pralines, each surprise treat is more delish than the next.
4. Glitter Lit Houses Advent Calendar
Okay seriously, how gorgeous is this advent calendar? Tiny, glitter-covered houses appear to be stacked on top of one another, creating a beautiful winter scene accented by sisal trees. It also comes with an internal battery box so you can turn the lights on and off within the cozy Christmas village and hide treats within each doorway.
5. 12 Days of Disney Socks
For the ultimate Disney fan, these character-themed socks are just the right kind of festive. Wear Ursula on Monday and switch it up with Stitch on Tuesday. (Just don’t be surprised if these start to go “missing” and wind up on one of your kids’ feet.)
6. Twelve Nights of Wine Advent Calendar
Okay, so technically this isn’t an advent calendar per se, but it certainly doubles as a fun holiday countdown. Inside, wine aficionados will find a mix of 12 different red and white wines, all curated from countries across Europe, that they can enjoy on the days leading up to Christmas. If you’re interested though, you better hurry — this little puppy sells out fast every year.
7. Once Upon a Castle Advent Calendar
If a trip to Sephora is like your own personal Disneyland, then this Once Upon a Castle advent calendar will feel like a dream come true. Twenty-four sample-sized surprises are hidden inside — from nail polish to charcoal nose strips. Woohoo!

9. ALDI Imported Mini Cheeses Advent Calendar
Where are my cheese addicts at? (*Slowly raises hand*) This daily cheese calendar will introduce you to all sorts of fromage you’ve never tasted before — and some you can’t get enough of. Choose from 24 different imported mini cheeses, including cheddar, Gouda, Edam, and more.
