Top Holiday Advent Calendars for Counting Down to Christmas 2019

Advent calendars are a fun way to countdown to Christmas, here’s my 7th annual round-up of Christmas advent calendars on Modern Mix Vancouver.  When most people think of holiday advent calendars, they typically envision a cardboard box with 24 chocolates hidden behind doors, one sweet treat for each day as they count down to Christmas.  Taking this traditional holiday concept, countless brands have now launched a modern twist on the advent calendar, themed with everything from bath, beauty, skincare, and even beer and alcohol!

With so many advent calendar options to choose from, you’ll be glad December has 24 days leading up to Christmas.

Similar to last year, I was invited back to Global BC to share my list of must-have advent calendars.  Watch the segment below! 


I could only bring eight with me on Global BC, so I’ve compiled an even bigger list in this blog post with all the fun holiday advent calendars I could find. Scroll left and right to see my picks.
