As we hurtle towards December, it is the perfect time to find an advent calendar to help you countdown to the day.
Luckily, Flamingo Paperie have a range of advent calendars for you to view.
As I said before, my favourite is the Reindeer Stable but I am tempted by the others too. They are different to many calendars because instead of opening windows to reveal an image or chocolate, an item is added to the scene. The lack of chocolate makes them is ideal for people, like me, who are on a diet or have dietary restrictions.
The high quality means they can be used next year if they are cared for and can be added to the annual family tradition.
For those who desire the more traditional design with windows, there are the popular advent calendar cards. I find these ideal for friends and family so they have an additional treat from the Christmas greetings.
November is also the time I settle down in the evening with a festive book to get me into the seasonal mood. I have a stash of new and old ones to choose from. Do you have a favourite book I could add to my to-be-read pile? I would love to hear from you.
