Advent Calender

My lovely friend (our eldest children are 9 days apart & our next are only 3 days apart - we had synched pregnancies ;) brought us this gorgeous surprise gift yesterday - a wooden advent calender!

Each date has a wooden drawer that can hide little treats and wishes. I've never had something like this before & had only been admiring this gorgeous felted calender a few days ago & dreaming of such things so it was a much welcomed & appreciated blessing. Ahhh :) 

I have a few ideas for filling it... What special things do you plan to put in *your*advent calender?

  1. Oh, I love those wooden advent calendars! What a wonderful gift.

    Have a wonderful holiday weekend! :~)

  2. I am just putting a chocolate in, and then a huge chocolate coin will replace the advent calendar on the big day. Beautiful calender, I am sure it will be in the family for a while :0)

  3. Oh, I like the idea of 'replacing the calender' on Christmas day with something wonderful - especially if they didn't see it again until next year. The kids would get a kick out of that! We actually won't be home for Christmas day so I'm only filling it to the 18th ;)

  4. What a beautiful calendar, and what a good friend! We are going to be filling ours with a mixture of small toys, chocolates, and little notes for activities, such as "put up our Christmas tree" or "make gingerbread houses".

  5. Hi Amber.
    What an awsome idea! I never saw one of this before.
    I love wood toys, it´s something that belongs to my early childhood.
    You can fill it with treats and special tasks to do, it will make things funny.
    Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting.
    A good weekend. Mizé.
