It is that time again to spoil your loved ones with our personal favourite Top 15 unique advent calendars for kids in 2015, which often outshine the rest making those 24 days on the run up to Santa popping down your chimney a little more exciting.
It’s strange how advent calendars have changed over the years. When I was a child all you seemed to get was a small piece of chocolate in the shape of santa or a snowman when you came downstairs to open the advent door.
These days the advent calendars are far better than this because now you can choose from luxury chocolate calendars to lavish and unique calendars which are truly designed to pamper, indulge and surprise you every single day throughout December in 2015.
Each advent calendar comes in various shapes and sizes and some of these have a price tag to match. This year I have found some of the best unique advent calendars for kids, which will suit tots, toddlers and older children, albeit I am sure the big kids like me will love some of them too.
