These Halloween advent calendars are a trendy and festive way to celebrate the spooky season.
Advent calendars aren’t just for Christmas!
The holiday season is just around the corner, and it’s honestly a little hard to contain our excitement. ☃️ While we can’t wait to start hanging our Christmas decorations, the reality is that we still have a little while to go (and a few other holidays to enjoy!) before we’re there yet.
Luckily, we can see Halloween in the not-so-distant future, and you can score your own festive advent calendar to celebrate the spooky season!
Note: Halloween advent calendars are a newer trend, so most of them don’t have many reviews. However, we did some digging and researched the products + companies to make sure all the ones we’re featuring are fun & of great quality!
1. The Vermont Christmas Company has a ton of fun Halloween advent calendars!
The Vermont Christmas Company was ahead of the trend and actually has several fun & highly-rated Halloween advent calendars! Each calendar door contains cute jokes and sayings that the fam will look forward to opening up each day leading up to Halloween. 🎃
Here’s what one reviewer said about their calendar:
“Wow! I was surprised at how much my eight-year-old loved this countdown to Halloween calendar. It is sturdy and well illustrated with some glitter accents. The flaps lift to reveal a short Halloween joke and accompanying illustration. My son literally jumps out of bed every day and looks for the date to read the joke aloud to the family at breakfast. We all try to guess and he has a blast when we can’t ‘get it.'”

2. Funko Pop’s Spooky Advent Calendar comes with 13 fun mini-figures.
Do you or your family love those fun little Funko figures you see just about everywhere? If so, the Funko Spooky Advent Calendar should be the star of your Halloween celebrations!
The calendar features 13 mini-figures representing spooky characters from classic horror films like Beetlejuice, Little Shop of Horrors, The Shining, and more. Considering that younger kiddos might be unfamiliar with those pop culture figures, this calendar is probably best for adults and older teens, but younger kids will still have fun opening up the boxes on the 13 days leading up to Halloween!
Here’s what one reviewer said about their Funko Spooky Advent Calendar:
“Love this, great countdown to Halloween…brilliantly cute little figures inside each door. I didn’t recognise all of them as I haven’t seen all the films, but that adds to the fun rather than detracting from it, trying to work out who’s who! I will box them back up and use them again next year also. My fave was the double doors at the end!”
3. This One Hundred 80 Degrees Hanging Calendar can become a Halloween decoration staple!
Don’t want to spend money on something you’ll only use once? Get this Hanging Halloween Advent Calendar that you can use year after year.
This hanging calendar reminds me of the Christmas calendars my grandmother used to knit every holiday season, and it’s a fun, nostalgic way to keep the tradition alive. Each day features a different Halloween-themed photo & you can put candies, notes, sayings, and other Halloween goodies in each pocket!
Here’s what one reviewer said about their Halloween advent calendar:
“I absolutely love this Halloween countdown! It feels very nostalgic to me and is something I know I’ll use for years and years. It’s spooky but also super child-friendly! My 2 and 4-year-olds love moving the marker each day and looking at the images on the countdown and pointing out what each one is. This countdown is very well made and great quality! I love how big it is! I was expecting it to be much smaller but it’s a great size for the price. I would recommend this to anyone!”
4. This unique Halloween Magnet Advent Calendar can be filled with whatever goodies you’d like.
This magnetic calendar is a unique & quirky take on the advent calendar tradition! It comes with twelve magnetic containers that count down the days until Halloween, and each container is large enough to fit candies, notes, and other fun goodies! And since it’s movable and magnetic, the kids can have fun playing with it on the fridge.
