The Best Advent Calendars of 2022

Let the countdown begin with our round-up of the best advent calendars out there.

Once upon a time the 1st of December was greeted with mass excitement as the first window on the advent calendar was opened. In those days (okay, we are talking the 1980s) the only treat behind that window was an illustration of either a religious figure or a red robin, and that was still exciting. Nowadays, pretty much anything goes when it come to calendars and there’s much more to get excited about than just a pretty picture. Alcohol, beauty, chocolate and even jewellery are covered when the countdown begins, and here are our Fabric faves:
