Advent Calendars For Children | Christmas Gifting

Whilst I realise it's October and may of you won't have given Christmas much thought advent calendars are becoming more and more popular and seem to sell out fairly quickly, hence my decision to post this now. This year there seems to be a huge variety for all ages on the market making it almost impossible to choose just one!  I know these won't be everyones cup of tea, but I actually like the idea of a calendar that isn't chocolate or sweet based and I think they make lovely gifts. 

As I don't have the luxury of shopping on the high street, I've scoured the internet for some of what I believe to be the best advent calendars for children, I've tried to cover a range of ages and prices so hopefully they'll be something for everyone!
