Tis the season to shop for advent calendars. The holidays can be so stressful, so it’s important to find little moments of joy between the prepping, decorating and gift shopping. We recommend treating yourself or a very frazzled friend or family member to an advent calendar, so counting down the days to December 25 isn’t as scary. Nordstrom’s advent calendar section is starting to fill out, and we found seven that are worth adding to your cart.
Advent calendars also give you the opportunity to sample a brand’s beauty or home products. The calendars often have high values inside, but cost less, because they’re bundled. For example, I’ve always wanted to try Charlotte Tilbury’s products, but I can’t decide which one I want to try. With the brand’s $200 advent calendar, I can get 25 mini products, so I can see how I like the brand instead of committing to an expensive serum that I might not enjoy.
Our mission at SheKnows is to empower and inspire women, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
