    From cheese, socks and gin to stationary, coffee and tech, advent calendars now cover every base. And let’s not forget the beauty calendars – everything from Charlotte Tilbury and Jo Malone to Glossy Box and Liberty.

    Yes, this is not a drill. A healing crystal advent calendar exists and we’re obsessed.

    The calendar, sold on Charmedbyanangel.com features 24 individually packaged gemstones, and it retails at just £15.
