Counting days until Christmas

November is coming to an end, that means Christmas is behind the corner. It´s about time to get the advent calendar ready! I´ve been looking into how to make my calendar this year and found many great ideas that I want to share with you.

1. The tree

I love this idea of a proper present every day in December. More information on how it´s done you can find here.

2. The gift bags

Isn´t this the perfect advent calendar to make when you don´t have much time? Get some cute giftbags and labes, then all you need to do is to put something in, put on a number and hang them up. Couldn´t be easier! (Picture from Better Homes & Gardens)

3. The classic one

This kind of calendar will always wake up good memories from my childhood. Just found this website in Sweden that have a great selection of calendar like this. You are probably running to late to make it for this December, but it´s time to get started for next year!

4. The boxes of activities

These boxes are filled with list of activities to do in December.
