OK so it's the end of October - time to mention the C word!!!! Yes people it's nearly time to buy your Christmas advent calendars! We have done a little edit of some of the nice ones we have found, a lot of which you can fill yourself and bring out every year, so worth the investment. To be honest we will probably end up with a lego advent calendar for Finn but I am lusting after some of these more cool designed ones.... As usual a mix of price points and high street and independent shops.... 1st December will be here before we know it, Christmas gift guides also coming soon :)
Here are our top finds, click to shop...
