While we still have a few weeks to go until December and we are beginning to think of ways in which we can enjoy the festive season I thought I would share some of my favourite advent calendar ideas. If you are single, living with friends, married or have a family, there is no reason why we all can`t enjoy the build up to Christmas. These cute ideas are easy and simple to put together to spruce up a little corner of your home or apartment. I don`t see why you have to spend a fortune on creating an advent calendar. Instead you could use a combination of little gifts, letters, quotes, photographs, a Christmas decoration or two and a few tasty treats. My personal favourite is the advent calendar made out of envelopes and I think I might just try it. Start getting creative because before you know it the silly season will be on our doorsteps.
