Five Advent Calendars for Grown-Ups

Late November is a bit of a drag. It’s cold out and the days are shorter, and, while it seems like Christmas is just around the corner, it’s not. The best way to count down the days to December 25 is a good ol’ advent calendar, but not just any advent calendar — one for grown-ups. Here are five suggestions.

Diptyque Advent Calendar

Diptyque is the ultimate in luxury fragrance, and their 2017 advent calendar offers miniature versions of their cult favourite perfumes, body and skin care products and candles.

$525, from Holt Renfrew, The CORE, holtrenfew.com

Port Advent Calendar

Indulge in this versatile dessert wine, which is delicious paired with strong cheeses and smoked nuts or sipped on its own after dinner. This calendar features 50 ml bottles from Quevedo — the perfect size for a daily sip (or two).
