The perfect advent calender!

Another 2 weeks and we can get out our Christmas calendar's, whether it be pieces of moulded chocolate, candy and sweets or something more?
I've hunted high and low to bring you the every girls ultimate Christmas calendar and to be honest, they're all the same, nail varnish, lipstick, creams and cost an absolute fortune. Are you really going to spend £50+ on a calendar when you don't even know if you like the contents. 
 I thought to myself, what if you could make your own calendar? Then fill each compartment with something nice for yourself. It's also a great gift for someone or for children in your family. Here are my favourite that I have found!

I think it's much nicer if you can design and personalise your calendars. They can be part of the Christmas decorations. They are especially lovely if you have young children and it can be a family activity every evening. If the calendar is for yourself and you know what's gonna be in each little compartment, buy a few bits really early in advance or spread throughout the year or get someone else to put the little "surprises" in each compartment, so then you don't know which pressie is in which parcel.

i'm going to have a go at making my own this year, something rustic and traditional, watch out for the blog about it!
