December is but four days away.
We know. It seems impossible and yet here we are. Christmas is a-coming and we’re all getting fat this year, it’s not just the goose. After this year we can all do with a treat, so if you’re in the market for elevating your advent calendar experience and investing in a little treat this year instead of your usual £1.50 Cadbury’s offering, we’ve got a trio of suggestions for you.For tea connoisseurs there’s a few great ones to choose from this year, but our money’s on the Teapigs 24 Days of Tea (£29.99, www.teapigs.co.uk). With a different tea bag a day selected from some of their bestselling varieties, you’ll find a plethora of flavours from teas to help you unwind after a long day to energy boosting flavours to add a spring to your step. We’re hoping they include a Spiced Pear and a Glühwein teapig, both festive favourites to make up for the fact we won’t be visiting a German Christmas market this year!
Snack maestros won’t be able to resist Joe & Seph’s Gourmet Popcorn Calendar (£29.99, www.amazon.co.uk). With 24 mini bags of popcorn from favourites like Salted Caramel and Orange Chocolate to brand new ones like Pumpkin Spice and Speculoos, this brilliant British brand is renowned for its innovative flavours. Handmade from 100% natural ingredients, it’s just the ticket for a delicious daily snack.
Of course if you’re an advent calendar purist and like your daily chocolate, the Lindt Teddy Bear Calendar is a rather special choice. Who can resist the golden glow of Lindt’s classic Christmas teddy? The calendar (£15, www.lindt.co.uk) is full of delectable Lindt treats, from milk chocolate snowdrops and smoothy creamy Lindor to an extra special treat behind the final door. It won’t fail to put a smile on any face.
