Top 10 Advent Calendars

By Judit Sadurni / November 5, 2020

More and more brands are joining this format and each year they run out of stock earlier. To save you to search, here we bring you the top 10 advent calendars on the market. Although there is still a month and 20 days left until Christmas, if this year you have decided to give yourself an early present, you should start looking at what advent calendar you would like to open.

The advent calendar is not a modern product, although consumerism has taken over most holiday traditions. It was created in 1908 by Gerhard Lang, who redesigned the advent calendar that his grandmother gave him when he was a kid. He was a participant of the printing office Reichhold & Lang, where he produced small and colored images that he attached to a cardboard every day in December. He called this product “Christmas Calendar” or “Munich Calendar”. This concept evolved and at the beginning of the 20th century the first advent calendar with windows was commercialized. 

A curious fact is that the first calendar filled with chocolate was not invented until 1958, the previous ones contained images, religious pictures or figurines. Although today we are not going to talk about calendars filled with sweets, we must emphasize that the best sellers are always:

Reese’s Lovers Advent Calendar
Cadbury Advent Calendar

Currently, calendars containing mini size products have become popular. The market has shown a strict gender distinction, as always, and that is why we find many more products aimed at the female consumer than the male. The following list mixes different varieties of calendars for all tastes:
