Advent Calendar & Gift Ideas

One of the best parts about the run up to Christmas is getting an advent calendar! But for dairy free me, I don’t get the enjoyment of a chocolate one so I’ve been shopping around to try and find a great alternative.

Perfume Click stock The Fragrance House* and I think it’s the perfect advent calendar for someone who doesn’t want a chocolate or generic beauty advent calendar.

The advent calendar has a classy, frosted glass tea light holder behind day 1’s little door along with 24 different scented tea lights for each day. All of the fragrances smell so luxurious, some of my favourite scents are Water Lily, Rhubarb & Sandalwood and Bergamot. A few of the scents actually remind me of Jo Malone candles and this calendar is only £9.99, a complete bargain!

I absolutely adore the packing of the little house, it’s going to look so cute sitting above my fireplace. So if you can’t have chocolate, you’re on a diet or you’re just looking for something a little different this year then The Fragrance House is a perfect alternative.

Perfume Click also stock lots of discounted frangrances and makeup goodies perfect for Christmas! I picked up this Rudimental* fragrance as one of Tim’s Christmas presents for only £9.60! My favourite thing about Perfume Click is the more you spend, the more you save. For every item you add to your basket you get a £1 off. It tempts me to shop even more but it’s great when you’ve lots of presents to buy for Christmas.

    Iv just got the Marks and Spencer advent as it looked such good value. I had a lush one last year and that was fab too. I love all the beauty advents! This one looks like a great choice too x

    Oh yours post make wanna get one too! I love it! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

    Oh like the idea of a scented tea light advent, I’ve been considering one of the beauty ones but that could be an even better alternative xox

    Ah wow, that advent calendar looks like a total bargain! I love lighting candles at this time of year but the expense usually puts me off – this is such a fun idea! x

    This calendar is so beautiful, but I can’t still believe that the Christmas time is coming so soon 🙂

    I can’t believe that’s only a tenner! My god! Because we’re all aware of the drama with overpriced advent calendars aren’t we… haha. To be honest, I probably wouldn’t ever stray from a good old fashioned chocolate one. I can’t afford these lavish beauty ones – but I certainly wouldn’t object if someone bought me one haha! xxx

    I love the idea of the tea lights for an advent calendar. Will have to see if around here. We have a beer one that just came out.

    I absolutely love the look of that advent calendar! I’d never heard of Perfume Click before, but the savings sound absolutely amazing so I must check them out xo

    I haven’t done an advent calendar since I was little but these make me want to get one! So fun!

  10. November 15, 2017 / 2:46 pm

    I really like this idea! I made a calendar from scratch last year and bought individual items for my partner and it was way more time consuming than I had anticipated so stuff like this would definitely have made my life easier!

  11. November 15, 2017 / 5:46 pm

    Now I want this advent calendar, it looks so lovely!

  12. November 15, 2017 / 8:00 pm

    This looks great! I’ve previously had a Yankee candle advent and a Ciate nail polish one. This year I’m looking at getting a tea one!

  13. November 15, 2017 / 9:21 pm

    This is a real bargain! I really want an advent calendar this year but don’t want to spend a fortune so this may be the one….! Thanks for sharing x

    This looks like such a great alternative to your normal chocolate or beauty advent calendar and at such an affordable price as well. The packaging is giving me such Christmassy vibes I love it!

    I am so jealous that advent calendars aren’t a bigger thing here in the states. They’re starting to slowly catch on but we still have a long way to go!

    Oh! I nominated you for the Liebster Award. You’re one of my favorite blogs to read 🙂

    I absolutely love advent calendars! They give so much to look forward to! Thanks for sharing these ideas! 🙂

    I can’t believe how amazing this advent calendar is – it’s such good value too! A few years ago my mum started to buy me a product-based advent calendar (either a makeup one or a candle one) and I think they’re such great ideas for those who don’t want/ can’t have chocolate ones! xx

  18. November 16, 2017 / 2:26 pm

    As much as I’d love to buy a beauty advent calendar this year my budget won’t stretch 😩 chocolate is good enough for me though!

    This is such a bargain, I love a good candle or two!

  20. November 20, 2017 / 6:54 pm

    Ahh that calendar is so adorable!! I never even thought of a candle calendar, they seem to be making them for all sorts of products now which is great like you say for people who can’t have chocolate (I’m not really a chocolate person anyway). Although my mum has bought me a “moo-free” vegan choc calendar for this year so you could look into that if you wanted one?! I’m such a sucker for the ‘more you spend, more you save’ deals because I WILL spend haha.

    This advent Callander does look great! I love candles

  23. November 27, 2017 / 12:40 am

    Oh wow I have never seen this before and it is so cute! I use scented candles everyday and it really is a bargain, thanks for the share I would never have discovered this otherwise!

    I absolutely love beauty advent calendars, they make the count down so much fun! Me and my sister went half this year and bought The White Company advent calendar so I’m super excited for Friday!

    The Fragrance House looks like a really good one, I haven’t seen this around so it’s nice to see something different xx
