The festive period may be a while off yet, but it's always a good idea to get in there early. After all, December is going to hit, and we'll all be up to our necks in tinsel. Although we girls treat ourselves to chocolate and beauty advent calendars every year, why not treat your partner or family member to some men's advent calendars this year?
December is a time for treating yourself and indulging in some treats, be they sweet, savoury or (very) alcoholic. One of the best treats is that little square of chocolate every morning from the advent calendar – but not everyone agrees. Sometimes people can’t quite get their head into the festive zone or get as excited about chocolate as us.
Luckily, there’s still a way to sneak them into the Christmas spirit with an alternative advent calendar – there's one for everyone: the coffee addict, the DIY fan and even the comic nerd.
So, get ahead of the game and make sure December is full of Christmas spirit and treats with one of these top-notch men’s advent calendars.

What advent calendar should I buy?
When it comes to advent calendars, it can be easy to get lost in a sea of options and not really know what to choose for your loved one.
Instead of grabbing the nearest thing and its contents going to waste, it's a good idea to think about what you might actually use or could even share with the person you're buying it for.
Some grooming calendars have over £200 worth of products inside for a fraction of that price, making them a great sharing option and brilliant value for money.
