    Thanks for posting this! I was wondering about all the Advent Calendars out there! 🙂

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re so welcome, Jen!

  2. Sara

    Keep the unique advent calendars coming! While our younger kids are easy our 2 teenage daughters are a little trickier. We’ve done the socks the last couple years but I’d like to do something different that they’ll really like this year. I just pre-ordered the Friends one for one of them now just need to find something for my oldest with a very quirky personality.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You bet! We’ll keep an eye out for any others that pop up!

    • Roxanna Scott

      Sara. Me too I have sweet teenage girls and would love to find or make a unique advent calendar for them 😊. They’re a little trickier to find what would work compared with my elementary boys

      • Pamela Stolp

        Why not make them a jewelry advent calendar with nice costume jewelry or the more expensive kind on sale from jewelry outlets! put 25 little boxes with the jewelry in them ! One to open each day!

    • Erin

      I have a quirky teenage boy. I’ve been making my own calendar for him for years. I pick up fun things I find throughout the year and save for Christmas. It’s not a bargain, but bookstores (Barnes and Noble, Books a Million) have interesting stuff up front near the registers.

    • Joan Vien

      L’Occitane cosmetics has one… they are a little pricey, but really nice quality products from France.
      (The best hand cream ! …and small sizes of other lotions, etc)

  3. bnpear2

    Our Costco had the lego ones in (I can’t remember the price!), And Aldi will have the Disney story book for $10 in November (they sell out FAST!).

  4. Crystal Dalton

    The Funko POP Fortnite advent calendar is only $27.97 on gamestop.com!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks, Crystal! Good to know!

  5. Rosi

    the body shop advent calender is cheaper on Amazon.

  6. angela

    Does anyone if a new fortnite calendar will be coming out? The one posted here I believe is last years.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      They are advertising all over sites the one we have listed for 2020, but I do see it was the same as 2019. I can only guess Fornite doesn’t have a new one for this year.

  7. Anne

    I got my Bonne Maman calendar, and I have the Friends one on pre-order!

  8. Jessica

    Please help me find advent calendars and gift ideas for my Almost 15 year old son!!

    Oh, I bought two of them! YUM!

  11. Krys

    Many years ago we ordered advent calendars for all our grown children that used three little flat batteries. Every window when opened and pressed played a Christmas carol. It even had a booklet with lyrics. Lasted years. Would like to repeat it
