Inventive advent calendars from JoJo Maman Bebe

"Now that the weather is turning colder, the countdown to 'Christmas proper' has commenced. I’ve got some amazing advent calendars lined up, but I’ve had to hide them away to stop the boys opening them early.

This tree-shaped one with drawers (top left), I’m going to fill with treats one box at a time as they have no patience, and hopefully I’ll come up with some non-food related ideas!

The other tree design calendar (top right) is for our fridge, and I can’t wait to get it started. It comes with a sheet of magnets which you apply, day by day. I just hope I can remember where everything is in a couple of weeks!

Both calendars, available from JoJo Maman Bebe
