Struggling to find the perfect gift is pretty much baked into every holiday season. Thank goodness for advent calendars, am I right? Packed with various sweet treats, advent calendars are an easy, fool-proof gift that simply keeps on giving up until Christmas. While some are more than happy to settle for a classic chocolate calendar, we say nothing is sweeter (and more thoughtful) than opening-up little doors packed with cult-favourite beauty products, like NYX Lipsticks and L'Occitane hand creams — 2019 is a big year for beauty calendars.
While hidden gifts vary, from makeup to nail polishes to perfume to skincare, the goodies inside are a surefire way to satisfy and surprise even the pickiest person on your shopping list.
Here, we’ve gathered together a list of our favourite and best beauty advent calendars to shop right now.
