Make the countdown to Christmas 2020 one to remember with this hand-picked selection of gin advent calendars, from a pink gin selection to a refillable gin clock.
We may still be several months away from the main event, but we’re already thinking about the countdown to Christmas. After a year which has been, to put it lightly, less than ideal, this year’s Christmas celebrations feel more welcome than ever.
Although there’s a lot of uncertainty around the day itself – especially when it comes to the number of people we’ll be able to celebrate with – there are still plenty of things we can do to make this year’s Christmas season one to remember.
Treating yourself to a special advent calendar is a great way to bring some extra festivity to your December. From sparkling calendars filled with your favourite beauty products to foodie-themed countdowns which offer an array of tasty treats, there’s plenty to choose from. And that’s not forgetting the star of the Christmas countdown show: the gin advent calendar.
