Everyone Loves an Advent Calendar

An advent calendar is a special type of calendar that reveals a new chocolate treat for every day that passes from December 1st to December 24th.

Most popular amongst children (and many adults, too!), advent calendars intensify the excitement for Christmas and give people something to look forward to at the beginning of each December day. It’s like a mini Christmas every day for almost an entire month. What’s not to love about that?

These calendars can also help develop children’s cognitive skills. It teaches patience and recognition of the days in a month, helping to improve their understanding of time.


The History of Advent Calendars

These unique calendars have been dated back to the 19th century when families from Europe would mark each day of December with a chalk line on the wall. Originally, these chalk lines were also used to signify the four-week Advent period Christians used to prepare for baptism.

However, since being invented, the advent calendar has significantly evolved. Not only do people from all cultures and religions now use them as a fun and rewarding way to prepare for Christmas, but the kinds of treats placed within those little cardboard doors have also changed over the years.

For example, you can find advent calendars filled with milk chocolate or dark chocolate, so there’s a sweet treat for everyone to enjoy.


Creating and Customising Your Quality Advent Calendar

Christmas is a time to celebrate, so why not go all out and create something that your loved ones will remember for years to come? A customisable gift shows thoughtfulness and deep knowledge about a person’s favourite things, and Cotton Bird’s quality advent calendars are a perfect choice.

If you’d like to give your loved one the gift of a personalised advent calendar this Christmas, follow these step-by-step instructions to help you achieve this dream.


Step 1: Choose the Type of Advent Calendar You Want

Cotton Bird is proud to stock more than one different advent calendar types for you to choose from. Before you can start the customisation process, picking between these two templates is essential.

Cotton Bird’s library of advent calendar templates and design options contains something for everyone. From elegant, minimalistic motifs to eccentric illustrations, we have it all.


Step 2: Choose the Treat that Goes Into Your Advent Calendar

The tradition of the advent calendar includes opening up a small, concealed gift every day from the 1st to the 24th of December. The advent calendars offered by Cotton Bird come with two main chocolate options: organic dark chocolate or gianduja.

Both of these options are made from high quality organic ingredients for a delicious, luxurious taste. The hazelnut flavour of gianduja is an exotic treat, while the subtle, bitter tones of dark chocolate are a bit more subtle, yet just as decadent.


Step 3: Add a Personal Message

If you want to, you can insert a personal message onto the design of your customised advent calendar. It could be a traditional message such as “Happy Holidays” and “Merry Christmas, Love from X”, or something a little more personal and sentimental.
