The best advent calendars to buy your grandkids this year

The holiday season is just around the corner, and we can’t stop holiday prepping. We know Halloween isn’t even here yet, but we still think it’s the perfect time to start kicking off our holiday countdown. We love a good advent calendar to help us keep track of the days and have found so many fun options, particularly for the kiddos in your life. There are plenty of beauty-specific countdowns, foodie calendars, and coffee enthusiast versions. There are even some centered around alcohol! But the advent calendars geared towards kids are just as adorable and magical as the holiday season itself.

Universal Monthly Calendar

Advent calendars have come a long way from their traditional chocolate-filled versions from our childhoods. Today, you can find a wide range of creative options that cater to the type of kiddo you love. From the princess-lover to the budding scientist, there is something for everyone. They are a really fun holiday season tradition, and the daily surprises will delight your grandkids. But with the myriad of choices, how do you choose the perfect one? Well, we’ve got you covered. Our in-house gifting expert has been scouring the internet for the best advent calendars for kiddos and grandkids, but shop them soon because they will definitely sell out.
