    I haven’t gotten any advent calendars, it’s still not a thing here where I live.

    More than the products itself, I’m in love with the drawers. I bet those can be reused as storage.

    Hello! I love advent calendars but every year I ask my hunkie for it.. And behold… I have never had one. 😂 I can’t seem to justify buying one for myself. But I love all of them!! Great post!
