The Only Thing Better Than One Present Is 25: The Best Beauty Advent Calendars


(Image credit: @emmanuellek_)

Although severely underrated, luxury beauty advent calendars are by far my favorite gift to receive throughout the holiday season—especially if they're filled to the brim with aesthetic-yet-functional products I can incorporate into my self care routine well before the new year. This season, I'm seeing hundreds of advent calendars that are worth your attention, but only a few that completely surpass all others for my fellow beauty enthusiasts.

As a newcomer to the world of advent calendars, I'm just now discovering the excitement of opening a box or sliding out a drawer to discover a sweet gift. If you've been wondering which ones to invest in this holiday season for you or a loved one's enjoyment, keep scrolling for my edit of the best luxury options on the market from beloved brands like Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdales to Dior and La Mer.
