I absolutely loved having an advent calendar every year as a kid and I want my twins to experience them too. The holidays are full of treats and candy though, so I don't love the idea of getting them even more candy. I know I'm not the only mom who feels this way! I found so many non-candy advent calendars that we can buy for our kids this Christmas.
You can buy these now and save them for closer to Christmas. I love doing this because some of these items are currently on sale and might not go on sale again before Christmas. Also, sometimes they sell out closer to Christmas.
