An Advent Calendar for Girlfriend

Winter, coldness and snow mean only one thing. Christmas time is coming. The countdown to Christmas gives an extra dose of anticipation. Advent calendars certainly contribute to that anticipation, but it’s also nice to watch the number of days until Christmas decrease each day. If your girlfriend loves advent calendars, this year you can make her a personalized calendar that will contain everything she loves. So how do you make an advent calendar for a girlfriend?

To make an advent calendar for your girlfriend you need to choose things to put in it as gifts. In the advent calendar, you can put sweets, perfumes, clothes, skincare products or anything else that will make your girlfriend happy. Whatever you put into it, your girlfriend will be delighted with the personalized advent calendar.

To start making a calendar, choose 24 gifts to put in it. Once you decide what the gifts will be, you will find it easier to decide what to put them in. If they are small gifts, you can put them in cute boxes and write numbers on them. If it is a larger gift, it will be best to use decorative paper in which you will wrap the gifts so that your girlfriend would not be tempted to peek and find out what is in them. Give her one gift every day and the happiness on her face will only grow day by day. If you can’t think of the things to put in the advent calendar, we’ve put together a list of gifts that will give you several ideas.

BOOKS

The Remains of the Day Book 

If your girlfriend loves to read, one book must definitely be found in her Advent calendar. The Remains of the Day book is written by Kazuo Ishiguro, the Nobel Prize in Literature winner.

GIFTS IN A SEPARATE ADVENT CALENDAR FOR THE GIRLFRIEND

When you make an Advent calendar for your girlfriend, it is important that it is a bit well thought out and that you give her sensible gifts. My ex-husband really liked getting an Advent calendar and that I made presents for him and for the good cause he would make one for me too. He bought a big bag of sweets and put THREE candies in a small package that I had to open every day. It was honestly just a disappointment. Try to come up with something better than that!

So what are the great gifts to put in your own Advent calendar for your girlfriend? Yes, it must not be too expensive either when you buy gifts for an Advent calendar. There are 24 packages to buy and that makes the total amount easily skyrocket. So it’s important to be a little creative.

Good gifts for the Advent calendar can be both small cheap things interspersed with some more expensive ones. That Advent calendar with three pieces of candy a day there, it was probably both unimaginative and stingy that was such a disappointment. If you are going to make a calendar for your girlfriend, you should probably expect a total budget of more than SEK 30 in any case.

It’s nice to have an Advent calendar with mixed content, it can be sweets, beauty products, books, small smart things, reflections, and maybe your girlfriend has a hobby that you can buy small things for? It is also smart to buy larger packages with gifts that can be divided into several days.
