The surge in alternative advent calendars has been meteoric in recent years, with all sorts of calendars out there including LEGO, Harry Potter and Whittards Hot Chocolate for Two. But there are also some luxury alternative advent calendars available, and this is my pick of the best… and the “Best-of-the-rest”.
This Advent calendar has been create by the award-winning jewellers to celebrate their 100 anniversary. If you do decide to purchase this calendar – which was featured on This Morning complete with security guard – you can expect to save over £23,000 on the individual cost of the items included in it! Wow how do I get my hands on one of these calendars to surprise the one I love in my life? It’s simple… theres a freephone number that you call to order yours!
So what can you expect to find in your calendar? Well you can expect an 18ct White Gold and Rose Gold Diamond Earrings (£4,250) infinity bracelet set with diamonds. You can expect a diamond and tanzanite necklace and earring set. And for the BIG Day – 25 December – you can expect a platinum solitaire diamond ring, worth a whopping £26,000!
If you’re not in the UK and you want something similar? Well those lovely guys at Tiffany & Co are offering a similar calendar, with a similar price tag although this one $100,000 USD
Liberty London Beauty Advent Calendar cost £215.00
Just like the Braverbrook calendar there is a saving to be had on the contents of this one. This time it’s slightly lower, but if you were to buy the contents individually then you would be looking at a price tag of £610, so you’re looking at a saving of £395, which can’t be sneezed at!
So what do you get in this gorgeous calendar? Well you get 18 full size products cult classics including Votary Super Seed Facial Oil 50ml retailing at £70.00. Trish McEvoy Beauty Booster Lip and Cheek in Plum at £29.00 and Le Labo Tonka 25 Eau de Parfum at £112.00!
All of this is housed in an iconic Liberty London ‘Strawberry Thief’ print box, which this year is 100% recyclable, and which is delivered free worldwide. So it doesn’t matter where you are in the world, you can still get your hands on this calendar!
There is definitely no better way to treat yourself in the run up to Christmas than to have a different surprise luxury food item from the top people’s shop Fortnum & Masons each day; starting with F&M’s iconic 181 sauce in day one and including Honey Spiced Vodka Liqueur, Sir Nigel’s Marmalade and for the BIG DAY a quarter bottle of champagne – the perfect way to get the festivities started!!!
Now Fortnum & Mason’s have a selection of advent calendars available this year, if you don’t fancy this one
Drinks by the Dram – The Ginvent Calendar cost £124.95
DBTD has teamed up with the guys at Gin Foundry to create this must-have for any gin lover (like my good self). Behind each of the 24 doors there is a 3cl bottle of gin including Manly Spirits Co. Australian Dry Gin, Downton Distillery Explorer’s Gin, Rock Rose Old Tom Pink Grapefruit and Slingsby Gooseberry Gin. This is truly a Gin tasting trip around the globe from Australia to Scotland. From India to home of modern gin, London!
The White Company – Beauty Advent Calendar cost £160.00
This is everything you would expect from The White Company including five star reviews. This indulgent Calendar includes Peppermint foot balm, Lime & Bay eau de toilette and my personal favourite Seychelles. If you were to buy these body care and award-winning skincare products individually it would cost you £264, so you’re making a £104 saving.
