Advent Calendar Presents

The festive season is a time for giving and what better way to give than through an Advent Calendar gift. The Advent Calendar is a Christian idea that dates back to the 19th century. Calendars first became popular in the protestant denomination whereby families used chalk to mark the days leading up to Christmas Eve. Today we find some incredibly beautiful calendar designs. Most have little doors on them that children can open on each day in the month of December. Sometimes these little doors with the dates on them have tiny chocolates within or even more elaborate gifts that children can keep. The calendars themselves also come in a variety of shapes and festive designs; anything from a Christmas tree shape to a nativity scene can be found. Either way, they makes for a great present in the build up to Christmas and they reminds us of this special, religious time of year.
