The past few Christmases I have found myself making advent calendars to send to my family as I can’t be with them for the entire holiday season. Plus, I love any excuse to start getting in the spirit of an impending holiday early. This year, I decided to go the slightly more involved route and theme my advent calendar. I used the song “My Favorite Things” to inspire everything from the gifts to the gift wrap. (Yes, you should be picturing Julie Andrews sewing curtain clothing right now.) Advent calendars can be as elaborate as you'd like and they are a great way to send some extra love to your friends and family.
I’ve started an ongoing list of advent calendar ideas on my Holidays Pinterest board, but would love to hear your ideas too - leave a comment or send an email...next Christmas is only 400 days away!
