We won't start our "official" series of holiday gift posts until Black Friday, but since advent calendars tend to sell out quickly, we're posting those early this year. (Please note that many of these calendars are not available in the US. Clearly they like Advent calendars in the UK more than in the US).
From Lush, the 12 Days of Christmas: "Draw the curtains and build up the fire, allowing a wintry tale to unfold. Between these pages, an Avobath offers uplifting clarity of thought, a creamy Butterbear waits to offer softening cuddles and Cinders warms herself by a crackling cinnamon leaf fire. Snow Angel melts on high, revealing fruity cassie and gorgeous rose absolute. Santa dashes through the snow, whereas Holly Golightly likes to Celebrate with a warming dose of Yog Nog. Don't confine these festive characters to your page, bring them to life for 12 magical days." £50 at Lush UK. (Last year this did launch in the US.)
From Jo Malone, the 2015 (looks the same as the 2014, but presumably has different products) Advent Calendar: "Each morning, open the doors of our Advent Calendar to reveal a spoiling surprise. Illustrated with the façade of the home of Jo Malone London, our Georgian townhouse, the calendar is filled with little luxuries: refined Colognes and rich and nourishing Body Crèmes, perfect for layering to create your own seasonal scent. The countdown to Christmas has never been so indulgent." £260, listed as "coming soon" on Jo Malone's UK site.
From The Body Shop, the 2015 calendar, featuring a number of scented items: "Countdown to Christmas in skin-loving style with our 24 Happy Days beauty advent calendar. This indulgent treat features a beauty surprise behind every door, from bestselling bath and body care to sparkling fragrance, plus our latest additions. So celebrate the festive season each day, with 24 Christmas gifts especially for you!" £60 at The Body Shop UK. (There are 2 versions of this calendar. At least one of them will be in the US in late October, $105.)
From Scotland's Arran Aromatics, the Cherish Advent calendar: "A must have for any fragrance fan! Cherish the moments of the 2015 holiday season with the limited edition, Arran Aromatics Cherish Advent Calendar. Filled with 24 luxurious treats from candles to shower gels and much more, this fabulously-festive advent calendar is the perfect way to share the joy of the season with those in need of a little pre-Christmas pampering!" £40 at Arran Aromatics.
