    My Dad passed away 2 years ago so I use a candle advent calendar. I light a candle ever night to the run up to Christmas which represents him still being her in some way. Christmas can be a difficult time when you’ve lost someone close but somehow this seems to comfort me in someway x

    14/10/2018 / 11:52

    I usually select Cadburys Dairy Milk calendars for the grandchildren but dont usually get one for myself, so this would be fabulous.

  99. Helen Tyler
    14/10/2018 / 11:53

    I love any sort of Advent calendar. My husband bought me a make up advent last year and I really enjoyed all the little lipsticks and things. A new one every day was a real treat.

    I usually just buy a chocolate advent calander for a few pounds. Would love a fancy one as a gift but wouldn`t dream of buying one.
