Cute Advent Calendars To Buy & DIY

Posted on


Yes, it’s still October, but advent calendars are already selling out fast and delivery times are slow so if you want to make sure of getting one in time for the 1st of December, you do need to shop early. Here’s some of the most fun and cute options I could find, plus some DIYs.

kawaii Japan advent calendars

The 30 Days Of Japan advent calendar from Sugoi Mart (JP) sold out very fast but you can preorder one from the next batch. It’s packed full of surprise snacks, toys, games, collectibles, plushies and more, all from Japan.

Paperchase stationery advent calendars

The Big Stationery Advent Calendar is back at Paperchase (UK) for 2022 and I really enjoyed opening mine a few years ago. You get a full size stationery item every day including pens, washi tape, sticky notes, diary and £5 voucher. There’s 2 more advent calendars as well – a smaller kids version and an exclusive Mr Men & Little Miss design.

Pusheen hot chocolate advent calendar

For an indulgent treat, enjoy 12 Days of Hot Cocoa with Pusheen at FYE (US). There’s 6 special flavours to work through – Peppermint, Fudge, Crème Brulee, French Vanilla, Peanut Butter and Gingerbread.

Hello Kitty advent calendars

Hello Kitty has 2 cute advent calendar collaborations this year that you can find on Amazon. Unbox 12 Lip Smacker lip balms and hair accessories (US) or 24 accentra beauty treats and accessories (UK).

kawaii advent calendars

Meri Meri (UK/US/EU) always have a fun collection of advent calendars and this year is no different. My favourite is the Woodland Paper Play with a woodland backdrop and 24 animals and embellishments. It would be a really nice display that you can bring out again next year.

Etsy advent calendars

The Pins and Patches advent calendar by Auntie Mims (UK) is a great option for anyone who loves to accessorise. You get 24 hand packaged gifts to open with original enamel pins, patches and button badges.

watercolour DIY advent calendar

For something very different, de Winton Paper co (UK) has a Paint Your Own Watercolour Advent Calendar. You can buy it as a kit or digital download and use their video tutorials to learn how to paint 24 festive illustrations.

advent calendar cross stitch patterns

If you love to sew, this Christmas Advent Calendar cross stitch pattern by StitchMomStudio at Inspire Uplift looks like it would be a lot of fun to make. Even if you don’t manage to complete it by Christmas Day, it will be nice to work on through the holidays and display next year.

And an easy one to finish on. This DIY Advent Calendar from SLICK SLIME SAM is made from cardboard tubes and paper and yet looks really impressive. They’ve filled it with candy but you could use anything you like to make it more kawaii or crafty.
