10 Advent Calendars for Mama

‘Tis the season! Now who’s to say you need to be a kid to enjoy the anticipation of the 24 day countdown to Christmas! In recent years, the traditional chocolate advent calendar has taken a back seat to a wide range of chocolate-free alternatives starting from the latest beauty and skincare products to high quality beers and enticing wines. While I was busy rounding up my top choices, I thought I would share some favourites, because we all known mama deserves a special treat after braving those chaotic malls and many a late night wrapping sessions!

  1. Such a good idea to post these! Mommas always forget that there are so many ways to treat themselves. I tried a German Beer Advent last year but I would love to try the wine one!

    1. Thank you!! I think I’m just seeing that now too! My youngest is nearly 15 months and some days I look at myself and shake my head thinking who on earth will take you seriously looking the way you do!!😆 So I’m really trying to make a point of taking some time for me, especially over the holidays. It’s a special time for the whole family including momma and this has been I guess a little way of reminding myself that!
