    It may be a little early to get the Christmas tree out, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t start looking for the perfect advent calendar. Whether you’re a makeup and skincare fanatic investing in a beauty advent calendar, or you’d prefer to soak in the bath with the Harry Potter advent calendar bath bombs, there is something out there for everyone.

    But if you’re after something sweet, you’ll be thrilled to know that M&S are releasing their Percy Pig advent calendar once again and what a way to count down to Christmas day.

    Percy fans can get their hands on the calendar, decorated with several versions of the popular pig in festive wear, including Santa outfits and ice skates.

    However, you won’t find a traditional chewy Percy behind each door – instead, it will be filled with a milk chocolate alternative. But don’t panic. A bag of the original Percy Pigs are hidden behind the last door. Phew.

    M&S are also making sure that Colin the Caterpillar fans aren’t left out of the festivities. They’re introducing a very special Christmas Colin, just like your regular Colin but decorated with candy canes, stars and presents.

    The Percy Pig calendar is available in stores now, but we’d suggest getting yours ASAP because they’re likely to fly off the shelves.

    In fact, why not pick up two so that you can count down in November as well as December?

    Just a thought.
