Is this still on?
*taps mic* Even though it feels like we were just saying "see you never" to 2020, 2021 is somehow coming to a close. But, to cheer you up, we've got a little something up our premature-holiday-gifting sleeves — well, technically, 25 little-somethings that are made up of 12-25-little somethings...We'll cut to the chase: it's advent calendars. As it turns out, not only have advent calendars for the 2021 holiday season already started to drop but they're also even more oddly specific than last year's lineup — we're talking beef jerky and limited-edition-sock stuff here. The weird and the wonderful of unique advent calendars aren't just fun, they're actually a good gifting-bang for your buck (especially for those looking to share gifts or wanting to try a variety of products). It's true, we've got months to go before December. But, why wait? Go ahead and start treating yourself and your loved ones early with this year's biggest advent calendars. Oh, and be sure to bookmark this page if you're interested in checking out more oddly specific options as they continue to drop — we'll be keeping tabs. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission. Lady M Advent Calendar Is it a decorative wreath or is it an advent calendar? It's both!
