Xmas is around the corner – ADVENT CALENDARS

November has not arrived to its end but I can feel Xmas coming. We can resist it, but let’s admit it, with kids around, why don’t start the magic already?

Today we want to show you some advent calendars perfects for the countdown. Do you want to see them?


24 beautiful paper starts filled with nice surprises that every boy or girl would love to discover. This advent calendar from Numero 74 is on top of our favorite’s list.


This beauty is an oldy from Sandra, the owner of Jesus Savage blog. Made from paper, she decided to present the calendar as a treasure hunting for her children. I love the idea and the calendar. She talks about how she did it in her blog, don’t miss it.


This piñata calendar from Was für mich is awesome!! She has the step by step in the blog and yes, it is in German, but images talk by themselves and google translator is always a nice helper.

Take also a peek to her calendar for 2015 and 2014. So many creative people out there.


This collaboration between FABELAB and loullou is really a treat. The 24 “pockets” are reversible. In one side they act as a pouch for presents and candies and if thy are turned outside down, they become funny muppets to play all year round.


And last, but not least, this advent calendar from La Maison du Calendriers that we have seen in Smallable. They have 10 different models containing 24 boxes shaped like houses that can be filled with candy or small presents. Every box contains a card with recipes or activities for the whole family. The 24 cards make a puzzle at the end of the 24 days.

A lovely idea!

Which is your favorite? Do you want to show us your advent calendar? Show it to us in Instagram with the hagstag #cuteandkidsXmas.

Our last recommendation is the flowery wreath at the beginning of the post. It is Sabine’s idea, from Miss-etc. If you are lucky enough to live near Bordeaux, you can attend to her workshop in the Xmas Fair at the Chateau des Tours. A nice way to start Christmas.
