Whiteley is a beauty advent calendar delight. From The Body Shop’s Wishes & Wonders filled with top-to-toe treats (saving £109 on products) to Marks & Spencer’s gorgeous selection (in store 26 October and featuring Benefit, Clinique and Ren) via Holland & Barrett’s pampering case of Weleda, Tisserand’s rollerball for better sleep and salt scrubs, it’s difficult to choose which one you’ll want this year.

Head to Boots the most-wanted collections from No 7 (one was sold every 10 seconds in the first week of release last year) – there are three to choose from including minis and full-size products – you’ll also be able to get your hands on ones from Liz Earle, Soap & Glory and more. And, don’t forget, Next are serving up their 2023 calendar filled with ESPA, Clarins and Neom.


Chocolate advent calendars 

For delicious chocolate from Cadbury, Lindt and Tony’s Chocolonely plus Haribo and more, pop into Boots, Superdrug, Poundland, WH Smith and Tesco – perfect for organising finds for nieces, nephews, grandkids and beyond.


Unmissable advent calendars for kids

For an advent calendar that’ll last long past Christmas, kids’ toys and books are the perfect solution. Head to Smiggle for fun stationery-packed ideas while Boots and Tesco have a huge selection from Disney, Lego Star Wars and Harry Potter.

The Entertainer has brilliant finds for toys (look for their Mini Brands and Paw Patrol) and Waterstones has inspired book calendars such as Mr Men, the Gruffalo and Usborne. You can even build your own bespoke calendar with reusable designs from Tiger and Jojo Maman Bebe.
