Christmas is a time of longing and joy. Making your own advent calendar is a perfect way to you’re your loved ones enjoy the lead up to Christmas and is a perfect surprise on the first of December. Find inspiration to help you fill your advent calendar in our handy guide.
The first step in making an advent calendar is to decide what the advent calendar should look like. Do you want to use ready-made bags or do you want to wrap 24 packages from scratch and hang them up? The possibilities are endless - the only limit is your imagination.
Once you have your advent calendar naturally the next step is to fill each slot with a gift that you think the person who opens the advent calendar will like and find joy in. Finding 24 gifts can be challenging, but we have several tips on what you can give.
If the gift is too big to fit inside the advent calendar, you can put a note in one of the slots with a clue to find the gift hidden somewhere in the home. Or you can write the number of the slot on the package and put it under your advent calendar.
Top tip: you do not need to fill every bag with a physical gift, gift your loved ones a day out or other exciting activities, simply pop a note inside the bag on that day telling that special someone what you will be doing. The same goes for recipes and other treats.
Tip: Fill your advent calendar with a note for an activity such as ice skating.
We hope you have been inspired with lots of lovely ideas to help you fill your advent calendar and show your appreciation to the ones you love. Merry Christmas from us to you!
