Over the last few years, our approach to gifting and the festive season seems to have changed. With it, advent calendars have also had a drastic makeover.
Chocolates and sweets in advent calendars are no longer the ultimate highlights of festive gifts. More recently the beauty industry has embraced the idea and revolutionized it.
