Meet the Sullivans: Our New Advent Calendar

Our New Advent Calendar

Our beautiful new advent calendar from Personal Creations came late last week, and Owen and I had such a fun time setting it up! Last year, at just 11 months-old, he wasn't old enough to appreciate, anticipate or help use an Advent calendar to count down the days of the Christmas season, but this year I know he's going to be really into it!

For the last several weeks months I had been looking for the perfect way for us to count down the days in Advent leading up to Christmas, but hadn't been able to find one I liked. So, when the nice people at Personal Creations contacted me about reviewing one of their Personal Creations Christmas gifts it was perfect timing, because they had exactly what we had been searching for!

I think Owen really likes opening up the drawers on the calendar where his little treats and a special message will be hiding! He has been calling it his "puzzle" since we set it up. The drawers are so easy for him to open and put back in too, so it's really an activity he can be 100% involved in. 

Inside the drawers this year I put either a chocolate kiss or a Christmas sticker, and a little message saying our Christmas Advent Activity for the day (each one is from a list I'll be sharing with you all tomorrow)!

I also really love that the calendar can stand all on it's own, which means we don't have to put any extra holes in the wall to hang it. We found the perfect home for it in front of the fireplace in the living room. And of course, isn't the personalization nice? I think it would make a great gift for a new family, much like us! You can use the code SRCH25BT for 25% off your order, and personalization is always FREE!

We just can't wait for December 1st so we can get started!

Are you counting down the days until Christmas? What will you use to keep track of the days left until Christmas?
