Advent calendars were once just for kids.

Tiny fingers would scrape at the weeny windows of cardboard, which opened up to display pretty festive pictures, or if you were really lucky, a little square of chocolate.

But now, there's an Advent calendar for almost anything.

Chocolate varieties are still strong sellers, only they now vie for a spot in your home with beauty calendars, boozy calendars, and even more niche varieties (yes, that's right, you can now treat yourself to a different porridge every day of Advent, or even a workman's tool).

It does seem to have gone a little bit crazy but we're big fans. Celebrate the run-up to Christmas with one of these adorable Advent calendars...
