I was just going to say that, advent calendars are huge business now as it’s not just chocolate, you can get beauty products from Boots and Body shop, luxury products from John Lewis and Harvey Nicks, Lego and Playmobile and even scented candles.The beauty ones are popular. Several sold out shortly after release.
Bought my chocolate calendars (Lindt) from Ikea on Monday. They're not on display though.Passed a house where they had the chocolate advent calendars up on the window ledge. Luckily it's Scotland so they won't melt by December. Or maybe they're just horsing a chocolate a day from October until Christmas.
They’ve changed- gin, cheese, make up, coffee, Lego all behind the doors these days. Lego ones sell out every year. I often think I should buy ten star wars Lego ones to flog on eBay, they go for substantial amounts in run up to Christmas but it feels a bit wrong.Advent calendars are a bit old fashioned, I think their days are numbered.
