Christmas is just around the corner, and whether you believe in the spirit of the season or not, there are some things about the season that simply puts you in a better mood – Christmas carols, white Christmases, holiday dinners and other merriments will please even the grumpiest of grinches. Another such delight is the advent calendar, now you may be familiar with the kind that comes with tiny chocolate pieces hidden in the boxes. We love chocolate as much as the next person, but wouldn’t you want a delight that lasts more than a morsel? One that not only fixes your mood but actually comes in handy for some of the beauty woes?
None of the quick fixes you see on the telly, such as a set of false teeth that magically fix a gap or products for thinning hair; though the latter may be available in other forms such as hair potions, hair oils etc. We bring you a list of luxury calendars that will put you in the holiday cheer almost instantly!
