We may be adults, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to celebrate the holiday season with an advent calendar of our own. After all, nothing builds excitement as the holidays approach like opening a little door each day to find a surprise inside, even if you’re all grown up. That being said, you can keep your little toys, bits, and baubles, because when it comes to our countdown, we want food and drink.
Luckily, there are products out there that cater to those of us who think of the holidays primarily as an excuse to hoover huge amounts of Christmas cookies, chocolate treats, and lots of lovely libations.
Sure, there are classic chocolate advent calendars for those who are nostalgic for their youth. But there are also hot sauce advent calendars, craft beer advent calendars, and others hiding celebratory morsels both savory and sweet. Get a decoy for your kids, and then you can have the good stuff all to yourself.
