bon appetit

Below you’ll find some of the best advent calendars for 2021—and they are, no joke, selling out as I file this, so if one catches your eye, don’t sleep on it.

If you’re chocolated out, check out this Christmas advent calendar of individually wrapped caramels hidden behind a wintry anthropomorphic street scene featuring a hamster with a tambourine.
