Christmas is around the corner and it’s time to look at ways to count down to Christmas in advent calendar style.  On my Amazon travels as you do,  I found 10 beautiful DIY advent calendars that need very little effort. Meaning they look DIY’ed (is that even a word? Well now it is :)) as we all love that “I created that with my own two hands” style, however, they are pretty simple to use. So we get the best of both worlds diy advent calendars which we didn’t really have to diy.



1: O Christmas Tree Treasure Box Advent Calendar

You could easily pull of “I created this advent calendar myself”. With its 24 drawers to open each day. You simply place a little treat inside each drawer. You could also add a little note say a few special words. After the drawer has been opening, you pull it out completely and turn it around to reveal a Christmas decoration.So now your advent calendar serves another purpose after all the days (drawers) have been turned around.



2: Bomb Cosmetics The Bomb Advent Calendar

I love this advent calendar its super way to countdown to Christmas while pampering yourself or the kids each day. In each window, you will either find a bath bomb or soap. Plus on the windows other side is information about the bath bomb or soap you have found. Which is a great way to learn about new bath products over the 24 days of Christmas.



3: Scratch ‘N Reveal Advent Calendars

This advent calendar is usual whereby you scratch off the days. Ok, you can’t tell people you diy’ed this one yourself but you can be sure that people will be impressed as its so unusual. Not many people would have seen this type of advent calendar. The only disadvantage though is that  you cannot use it again.



4:  Melissa & Doug Countdown to Christmas Wooden Advent Calendar – Magnetic Tree

[amazon_link asins=’B00EXYG7FG’ template=’ProductAd’ store=’coolfresheyes-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’84419714-c3b4-11e7-be03-31241d2ce21c’]

Magnetic is the way this advent calendar works. No drawers or windows to open simple place the magnetic wooden trees, ornaments and shining star on the tree to count down to Christmas. Also, you get a wooden ornament box which keeps all the pieces together.  To really get into the festival season it also comes with a holiday poem on the back. To encourage the family to communicate through reading out aloud the poem.



5: Advent Calendar with DIY Beads Charms Bracelet for Kids

How different is this an advent calendar you can actually wear after Christmas is over.  From Dec 1 to Christmas, every day has a special number and each number is a different jewelry gift. From Dec 1 open first Window: a nice bracelet, continue to open window 2,3,4….. , coming to a different and special charm every day. When you open the Window on the 24th, Christmas has arrived.



6: LEGO Christmas Build Up 40222

This one is my sons favorite, you can’t go wrong with lego. But a lego themed advent calendar you actually build with is genius. It can be reused year after year. An even when Christmas has long gone the lego pieces will still be in play. This lego set gives you 24 different Little LEGO models to build. Each with a winter or Christmas theme and total pieces 250. Plus if you already have lego you can, make it bigger and better each year.


7: Gingerbread House Advent Calendar

Gingerbread always makes the Christmas season real. I don’t like ginger biscuits but when I see it in the shops I know Christmas is on its way. Everyone loves making gingerbread houses but this advent calendar is created for you out of wood. The set includes 24 interchangeable wooden drawers, to hide treats in. Plus you can change the order of the drawers, so each year will be a little different.
