Advent calendars have become rather trendy in recent holiday seasons, referring to the weeks before Christmas. Advent means "coming" in Latin, so an advent calendar lets you know Christmas is on its way and to prepare. But you also get a fun surprise each day!

While these calendars come in many forms — spiritual, holy, funny, cute or even a bit risque — the message is always one of good fun and holiday cheer. And for the your loved ones you can choose from a beauty advent calendar, makeup advent calendar, or advent calendars geared towards your preferences of alcohol, movies, toys, and even pets!

There's something for everyone!
