      I was thinking the same thing, LG! 🙌

  2. Mblade

    I noticed no mention on the glossybox advent calendar. That’s typically best value. Or if your going for quality, Charlotte tillburys advent calendar. Everyone has an advent calendar these days

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the suggestions! We’ll keep an eye out for those too!

    • 4shankogirls

      Glossybox requires a subscription.

    The Belk advent calendar is not saying the $10 off coupon works with it & it says must hit $49 to get free shipping. Sad. Was really excited about this one…

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      DARN! Thanks for letting us know! That coupon isn’t apply for me on those now either. This has been updated.

    With all the makeup freebies we get throughout the year, I’m able to make my own beauty advent calendars! I just pick up some treat bags at dollar tree and number them! ☺️ I get to personalize the gifts for my sisters-in-law, too, based on what they like, want, and need.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      That is AWESOME! I did something similar for my son when I couldn’t find the theme of advent he would enjoy. Thanks for sharing this!
