When it comes to the holidays, there are things that I put more effort into than others. For example, I like to get creative decorating our Christmas trees. To balance this effort out, I look for places to take shortcuts… and one such place is by embracing store-bought decor, like a cute Advent calendar! While we aren’t especially religious, we like the idea of Advent calendars to drum up some excitement for the holiday season. Plus there are some seriously cute calendars that count down the days to Christmas (and even Hanukkah!) — they make great gifts, too! Here are some of the cutest ones I’ve seen this year so far.
