Best alternative advent calendars 2022: From popcorn to pork crackling (1)

In the final hurdle of the year, conversation is dominated by one subject: Christmas.

The big day may still be weeks off, but if you’re anything like us, you’ve already started thinking about the perfect gift and picturing your festive look this year. You may have even begun dusting off your faux Christmas tree from the attic, ready to unbox the moment it’s socially acceptable.

While we’re waiting in earnest for the parties, reunions and, let’s be honest, the food, there’s one thing that’s making us fidget with excitement right now: shopping for advent calendars.

The festive must-have has come a long, long way from the chocolate-stuffed versions we yearned over as kids. Now they’re a fixture all of their own, with options to answer every taste, budget and fancy you can think of, from stationery to sex toys, booze to beauty.

But while many the contents are made for an adult audience, the excitement of tearing open a fresh window every morning remains giddily childlike, no matter how old you are.

To showcase the sheer variety on offer, we’ve put together an edit of the weirdest, wildest and downright wonderful advent calendars to make Yuletide 2022 even more special.

Check out the best alternative Christmas advent calendars to get before they sell out.
