With just a few days until December it’s high time we all start thinking about what advent calendars to get for the kids this year.

Sure, we could just pick one up in the supermarket but have you ever delved into the chocolatey rabbit hole of online advent calendars? 

With millions to choose from online, advent calendars no longer mean a simple chocolate countdown. Oh no, they can mean jewelry, toys and even more. 

As if Christmas wasn’t expensive enough, you can now spend extra cash on a pricey advent calendar as some cost over £100. 

We’ve compiled a list of the best advent calendars for your little ones, from delicious and affordable to down-right extravagant:
