Candle and Jewellery Advent Calendars Christmas 2014

You're probably all getting sick of me talking about advent calendars, but this is the last one, I promise!

Advent calendars come in many shapes and forms these days. Chocolate; illustrated; ornaments to fill yourself; and even ones filled with beauty products. What you may not know is that there are also advent calendars containing candles and jewellery! How fun is that?! 

Candle advent calendars started appearing a year or two ago, but this is the first year I've seen jewellery calendars. There are only a couple I know of, but I can see the idea taking off over the next couple of years. You'll understand what I mean when you see them, so let's take a look... 

The Meri Meri Nutcracker Charm Bracelet Advent Calendar is quite easily one of the loveliest and most unique advent calendars I've ever seen. This jewellery box style calendar features two colourful trays, each with twelve compartments, and waiting behind the doors are twenty-three Christmas-themed charms and a bracelet! How amazing is that?!

Every day you can add a new festive charm to your bracelet, wear it  and watch it grow throughout the Christmas season. By Christmas Day you'll have a full festive charm bracelet to wear again and again over future Christmases! The idea is brilliant!

If the concept wasn't enough, the packaging is also gorgeous. It's so colourful and even has a pop-up Nutcracker theatre at the back! You can always count on Meri Meri for the cutest designs.

This calendar is available through Selfridges for £27.95, but I also found it through Amazon here for just £19.54! The difference in price is shocking!

I'm unsure of the brand of this Jewellery Advent Calendar, but what I do know is that this calendar enables you to create your own Pandora-style charm bracelets! Each calendar includes two extendable bracelets and twenty-two enamel and crystal charms. It's available on Amazon now for £16.75.

On to the candle calendars...

With the Yankee Candle Advent Calendar, you can count down to Christmas by lighting a festive scented candle every day! Behind each door you will find a tea light in one of six seasonal scents, with an extra special surprise behind door twenty-four. At £21.99 it's reasonably priced, and it's a great alternative to pampering yourself with chocolate or beauty products during advent. Who doesn't love burning a Yankee candle or two at the end of a hectic day of Christmas shopping and partying? Just add a glass of wine, a Christmas movie, and a face mask and you've got a relaxing evening sorted!

Yankee Candle have also brought out a second advent calendar the 'Advent House', which has the loveliest festive packaging. Like the Advent Calendar, the Advent House features a seasonal Yankee tea light behind each window, and a votive on Christmas Eve. Six seasonal scents are included in the House, with a slightly different combination to the Advent Calendar. It retails for £24.99 and is available now.

Counting down to Christmas is becoming more and more fun and indulgent these days, and oh how I love it! I wonder what they'll think of next!

Will you be treating yourself or a loved one to a jewellery or candle advent calendar this Christmas?
