The holiday season is all but synonymous with sweets, which can leave some of us craving a break from the sugar rush. But since many advent calendars are traditionally filled with chocolate, giving your sweet tooth a rest while still counting down to the big day can feel tricky. Whether chocolate just isn't your thing or you're looking for something a little more out of the box this advent season, we suggest one of these unique (and equally festive) advent calendars. From cheerful tea-filled calendars to skincare product lineups, take a look at a selection chock full of countdowns for every type of gift recipient and get ready to pre-order.

A New England classic, McCrea's Candies is offering an advent calendar filled exclusively with mini caramels. Made from locally-sourced butter, milk, and cream, enjoy 24 caramels in 12 different flavors.
