What is an Advent Calendar and the tradition of gifting one?
An Advent calendar is a cherished tradition that originated in 19th-century Germany. Typically, an Advent calendar has 24 windows, and they are designed to be opened daily, from the 1st of December. Our Photo Advent Calendars can be personalised with your photos on the front, as well as inside, for a truly one-of-a-kind gift.
While chocolate is a common surprise behind these windows, some calendars, like our Fill Your Own Advent Photo Calendars feature an empty pocket, so you can add a small gift of your choice behind each door. The inner tray of our XXL and Fill Your Own Advent Photo Calendars are 100% biodegradable, a thoughtful way to minimize our environmental footprint post-holidays.
Advent Calendar: A gift that decorates your home with your photos
Whether you hang or lean your photo advent calendar, you’ll find a variety of personalised calendar formats, templates and fillings, featuring one or more of your cherished photos.
Some of our Photo Advent Calendars will even turn into a photo collage poster, and the wooden bar with magnetic closure will clip around the poster for you to hang on a wall to keep forever. For the chocolate lovers, choose an option from some of the most loved chocolate brands, including Fererro, Kinder and Tony’s Chocolonely.
