‘Tis the season once again! 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 tequila.. that’s right you heard me! While I was busy scouring the internet for this momma’s advent calendar, I thought I would share some new calendars that have caught my eye and old favourites I came across, because we all know us mommas deserve a special treat especially after braving those chaotic malls and ‘managing’ sugar-filled babies for the next 24+ days! I hear that Tequila Advent Calendar calling my name.. LOL!
