Celebrate the Festive Season with a Custom Advent Calendar

4th October 2021

Advent calendars go hand-in-hand with Christmas, just like mulled wine, mince pies and the Coca-Cola Christmas advert on TV. Give this Christmas tradition a meaningful twist and count down to Christmas a little differently this year. There are options to suit anyone and everyone (even the dog!) with our wide range of personalised advent calendars. If you’re not sure where to start, we’ve put together some of our favourite ways you can personalise your advent calendar to help kickstart your festive creativity.

A Reason to Smile Every Day 

Personalise a Photo Advent Calendar with fond memories behind each door. Perfect as a gift or something fun for yourself, our customisable Photo Advent Calendar is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. Whether it’s for someone you’ve taken plenty of photos with or as a gift to yourself to reminisce on your favourite holiday, make the countdown to Christmas truly unique. You can add up to 24 individual photos behind each door, plus one of your favourite photos as the cover to help get you into the festive spirit.

The best part about our Photo Advent Calendars is that it’s totally up to you what to include behind each door. Choose photos you know they’ll love and add personal messages with text to make it extra meaningful, or try spelling out a special message throughout the month for them to decode on Christmas Eve. You can even add a unique QR code behind the doors to share your momentous videos with that special someone.

Sweeten It Up with kinder® or Ferrero

The advent calendars that we’ve all come to know and love are those that provide a little sweet treat every day in the run up to Christmas. Steer away from the standard shop-bought ones and treat yourself to your own specially designed advent calendar for your home – without compromising on the chocolate! Our chocolate advent calendars can be personalised however you like and are available with sweet treats from kinder® or Ferrero.

Spoil the kids this year and treat them to a personalised Advent Calendar with kinder® Chocolate.  Customise the advent calendar with any image of your choice; a cute portrait of your recipient, the family pet, or perhaps a drawing they made themselves. The possibilities are endless! Plus, another feature that’s new for 2021 is the ability to choose an image behind each door of your kinder® Photo Advent Calendar, meaning you don’t have to compromise on photos or chocolate each day of December.

From those who will be eagerly anticipating an advent calendar to those who aren’t expecting one, our kinder® Surprise Eggs Advent Calendar is enough to surprise anyone and is the perfect way to get into the swing of the festive season.

Don’t let the kids have all the fun! Treat someone special to a personalised Ferrero chocolate calendar, filled with an assortment of tempting Ferrero chocolates.

Plus, you can add your very own design to the front. For example, you could create something to suit your home interior colour scheme, write your favourite quote from a Christmas movie or choose a favourite photo. Create your masterpiece using a free online design tool like Canva, then upload into our award-winning software. Making your own personalised chocolate advent calendar has never been easier.

An Advent Calendar for Everyone

Why not Fill Your Own Advent Calendar with whatever you like? Whether it’s vegan treats, sweets, savoury snacks, toys, or small beauty products, you can create a personalised advent calendar that caters for absolutely anyone. You can even fill it with cat or dog treats, customising it with your favourite photo of your furry friend so they don’t miss out on the festivities! Check out our blog for more inspiration on what to include in your Fill Your Own Advent Calendar.

New and Sustainable: Our Compostable Packaging

We take sustainability seriously and are incredibly proud of our green credentials, which is we have introduced our latest update to the advent calendar range – compostable potato-based blister trays to replace our previous plastic version.

These sit neatly inside all our chocolate and fill-your-own varieties and make the post-Christmas clear up that little bit less wasteful thanks to their ability to biodegrade. You could even try using them as small plant trays and giving some seedlings a home!
