As if we needed any more reason to love the month of December more than we already do, enter advent calendars. Behind every door is an exciting surprise that’s waiting to be revealed as we inch closer to Christmas Day. Count down to the holidays with these adult advent calendars for every grown-up who’s secretly a kid at heart.

Beer Advent Calendar
When it comes to alcohol advent calendars, a beer set is one of the easiest to DIY. Just head to a grocery store or a craft beer shop, grab 12 to 24 bottles of beer (we’re not judging) and crack open a cold one every day. Another route is to sign up for a shipment from Craft Beer Club, which includes 12 world-class craft beers.
There isn’t much to DIY here, but you can fill this box with 12 fun gifts and get some gifting tags out of it.

Ornament Advent Calendar
Although you’ll probably know what ornaments will be behind each calendar door, make it a tradition to add a new ornament to your tree daily after every reveal.
