Add a little Christmas cheer to your home with these top picks.
Christmas comes just once a year, but many of us start celebrating well before December 25. After all, there are gifts to buy, Christmas cookies to bake, Christmas cards to send, and so much more. One way to add a little extra sweetness to the month is having an advent calendar in your house. There are different types of advent calendars available, from ones filled with candy to advent calendars for pets and even wine advent calendars. But if you want to make things a little more personal this year, you can get a reusable advent calendar and fill it with custom-picked goodies for the whole family. Not only do advent calendars make every day leading up to Christmas a little more special, they can also help younger kids keep track of how many days there are until Santa comes. Need some ideas for what to fill the calendar with? Chocolate is a classic option, and candies of all kinds are sure to be appreciated. You can also put toy jewelry or matchbox cars in for gifts for a younger child, or things like lip balms or hair accessories for a tween or teen. Some advent calendars are even large enough to hold things like books or video games. The best part is that unlike pre-filled advent calendars, these reusable ones can be brought out year after year. Plus, reusing the same one is more eco-friendly.
Here are 18 of the best reusable advent calendars for 2022.
