Deck the halls and get ready for the holidays! Here are seven advent calendars you’ll want to get your hands on this December.

1) Marks & Spencer

For the classic milk chocolate-filled advent calendars, M&S is a no-brainer. This year for grownups, they’ve got the same pyramid-shaped advent tree as last year, but kids can choose from themes of Disney’s Frozen, Darth Vader, and even a light-up one featuring characters from the latest Star Wars film. But… who says they’re just for kids?

$55-229HKD from Marks & Spencer.

Various branches, including
G/F-1/F Central Tower, 22–28 Queen‘s Road Central
+852 2921 8323

2) Myprotein

We get it, the holidays are full of fattening foods. But it doesn’t mean you have to shun every treat. This advent calendar from online health food store Myprotein hides a high protein chocolate coin behind each window, so you can treat yourself each day leading up to Christmas without setting yourself back from your New Year’s fitness goals!

$148HKD from (now on sale for $79HKD)

3) Jo Malone

For 24 days of smelling like absolute luxury, Jo Malone’s mammoth perfume townhouse advent calendar has been on the tops of our wishlists for years. In each cabinet you’ll get a mini sized, deliciously smelling gift for each day leading up to Christmas… your actual Christmas gift can’t possibly live up to this, can it?
