Smiggle Advent Calendar

Advent calendars for us normally involved opening a door on something chocolaty but I was VERY excited to review the Smiggle advent calendar (£25.00) and try something a bit different for a change!  I opened it early just for you guys so I can give you a feel for the product and leave you enough time to order your own if you fancied.

I especially liked that you get the chance of finding a lucky ticket (with £250 to spend on Smiggle), it felt like a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory moment, but alas my luck was not to be.  But for a brief flash I lived the dream of placing a giant Smiggle order!!!

I must confess I opened the little doors whilst the boys were sleeping; they had already opened my Yankee advent calendar (and used all the little tea lights to play shop!) so I was determined to experience this calendar for myself.  I wanted to open each door slowly and appreciate the contents one by one. 

The outside of the box looks very tempting and you know with Smiggle you are in good hands, they offer lots of quirky fun stationary products so the contents are very colourful, interesting and appealing.  If you’re going to countdown to Christmas you might as well do it in style.

I took a picture of the contents of the advent calendar; I am not sure whether you would want to see this if your considering placing your own order so I should make a spoiler announcement on here, if you wanted a surprise LOOK AWAY NOW.

I do think I should let you see though as £25 can be a lot for some to spend, particularly if you tend to only spend £1 or £2 on chocolate ones.  Personally I do like the variety of the selection and think every now and then why not be a bit more indulgent and spoil yourself or your loved ones.
