Advent calendars come in all shapes and sizes, but this one is also a lovely decorative home accessory that can used year after year.
It’s made of wood and shaped like a Christmas tree and there 24 little drawers to open each day during Advent. The drawers are designed to be filled up with the treat of your choice – sweets or chocolate would fit in well – and it would be a lovely way of counting down the days to Christmas.
The wooden Advent Christmas tree is £24.99 from Lakeland.
October 2012 update:
It looks like the above Lakeland Advent calendar tree is now sadly unavailable, but a similar design tree advent calendar is available here or Selfridges have a wooden Christmas tree advent calendar too.
Also worth checking out is this lovely wooden advent calendar house, from John Lewis.
