    Do you mean the chocolate advent calenders? If so i would definitely wait until next year :)

    Also next year if you didnt want to do chocolate you can buy the ones with the pouches that you fill and you could put some healthier treats or a mix.

    We've got a wooden one that you fill yourself. I'm going to put chocolates in for me and oh, then slips of paper with snack or lunch ideas for lo (rice cakes, pancakes, organix snacks etc). Might also get an advent candle for him.

    Mil has bought us one but then she buys us one every year, its a paper one that you just open for the pictures not chocolate. Personally I don't like the chocolate ones but maybe that's because I didn't have them as a kid. Growing up for me the excitement of the advent calendar was seeing the picture underneath (nativity related even though we weren't a strongly religious family) and counting the days. Nowadays they all seem to be chocolate filled Disney/Ben 10/Barbie things, which have their place but I don't like them and get annoyed at the lack of traditional ones in the shops.

    I might make them when she's older. Or buy one of the fabric ones with pockets and put a Christmas decoration in each, so she can hang it on the tree and fill it up throughout December.

    Anyway lol... I will probably show her the advent calendar but I doubt she'll really be interested for another year or two at least.

    Daniel has a reusable cloth advent calender.
    we are going to put an animal biscuit in each pocket for him

    However, as your LO is much younger, you could put what you want in this year and eat it yourself ;)

    i got an eric carle one off amazon. its a 3d xmas tree with 3d santa and doors to open with different things to put on the tree inside and was only £5, its gorgeous and a nice decoration for the living room! i wanted to get a special one/ different one and this one fitted the bill. I also got a matching one for my lo's cousins who are 2 and 4 for their house (wrote the card from my lo) so that they all have something in common and have a bit of a bond. i love xmas! xx
