Our Pick for 2022 Advent Calendars
As somewhat serious environmentalists, we used to avoid Advent Calendars due to the enormous amount of paper and plastic used in their packaging. That is until I saw a Facebook post in my local Buy Nothing community. Someone posted perfectly almost-new-looking tins of Starbucks holiday advent calendar collection, already washed and cleaned, and to fill with your choice of tea, coffee, or cocoa. Maybe a surprise little gift or two? Like a little bottle of brandy? Just an idea.
Also, do you know that the 2021 Chanel Advent Calendar which retailed for $850 now is fetching upwards to $1,500 in secondary marketplaces? Talk about high-return investments!
Below are our choices for this year’s Advent Calendars. Enjoy and happy holidays!

What’s better than a Tiffany blue box? Multiple Tiffany blue boxes, of course. Pair that with the renowned artist Andy Warhol’s design and 24 remarkable gifts inside. This would be an Advent Calendar to treasure forever.
