From wine and cheese to socks and chocolate, these advent calendars go way beyond the norm.
Advent calendars have evolved over the years and now feature more than just chocolate that ends up going stale after a while. We now have not only the annual wine and cheese advent calendars, but even beer and pork rinds calendars.
But 2019 actually takes the cake with all the different kind of advent calendars that are available, making for thoughtful gifts for friends and family. Aside of the famous Aldi wine advent calendar, here are some other options to choose from for that special someone this holiday season.
The Bonne Maman preserves advent calendar is for the jelly lover in your life. The calendar features 24 petite jars of different limited-edition jams and jellies (and honey), all of which are free of high fructose corn syrup and all-natural. Flavors include purple fig and cinnamon, strawberry-verbena, raspberry-lychee and grapefruit-dragonfruit.
There’s also the Jerky advent calendar for those that like their meat. Man Crates’ calendar contains 25 different flavors of jerky, from honey bourbon and whiskey maple to garlic and Sriracha flavors. All are made from beef with the exception of a few varieties made from elk, bison or alligator.
Fan of tea time? Tea lovers will love a calendar from David’s Tea that comes with 24 different teas that feature bestsellers, throwback favorites and even exclusives.
Needless to say, there are just so many options to choose from!
