Wine Advent Calendar Review: Christmas 2018

Wine Advent Calendar Review. Hello friends. Happy Thursday.

I have always been a huge fan of Christmas Season. On the 1st December, every year the tree goes up and out comes the advent calendars.

Even my Husband and University aged children love one each. The countdown officially begins.

Each morning before breakfast me and my two youngest rush for our advent calendars and eat the chocolate as quickly as we can.

The Husband, on the other hand, likes to save them a few days and open them up altogether! Crafty…

Wine Advent Calendar Review:

Advent calendars have moved on so much since I was a child. I remember excitedly opening a window on my advent calendar and ripping the little picture off and sticking it on my wall. There was never anything inside them though. 

A few weeks ago Laithwaite’s Wine sent me one of their Wine Advent Calendars to review.

Wine is one of my favourite drinks and I was so excited to see what would be inside. (Hopefully lots of WINE!!)

Nowadays it is amazing what things you can get inside an advent calendar.

I never really noticed until a few years ago that you can get some fun things like makeup and toys inside but when I was researching some ideas for this post I realised you can get anything in them now from perfumes to your favourite drinks.

I was so excited to receive my delivery, the parcel was so heavy. It was definitely not chocolate.

My Thoughts:

I could not wait to open it but part of me wanted to wait until December to open it day by day too!

I slowly opened one, day by day and read the labels on each wine. Whoo prosecco. My favourite. Whoo red wine, another favourite.

I love wine and I can spend forever choosing which wines to try. Ha, I love red, rose, white and prosecco come to think of it anything really!

Also, I like to pick my meals around which wine I am having too.

The wine advent calendar is full of old favourites and some new ones too. I will enjoy them all I’m sure.

    That was definitely a plum review to get. I am not sure I could manage a bottle of wine a day but I am sure I would get a lot of offers of help. It would be very popular in our house.

    I always love a good chocolate advent calendar, but I’ve had my eye on wine advent calendars for a couple of years now! This one looks amazing, especially with some Prosecco in there!

      Thank you. It is a beautiful advent calendar 🙂

    I’ve been thinking about getting a wine advent calendar and I think you have sold me on this one Claire. The only problem is my husband would like one too and then it can get a little expensive, but you only live once!

    • 11th November 2018 / 7:24 pm

      Thanks Mellissa. Aww my Husband wants one now too 🙂
