Homemade Advent calendar: Our selection of small gift ideas

Sweet treats

It is well known that nearly all children (big and small) have a sweet tooth!

You could fill some of the little bags of your calendar with Christmas chocolates, sweets, candy canes or Christmas biscuit decorations that they would be happy to hang on the tree!

Knick-knacks and small toys

Little miniature figures of their favorite characters, Playmobil, legos, mini-puzzle pieces, ink stamps, a key chain, Christmas stickers or stickers of their favorite characters, small cars, princess or dressing up accessories…

Why not create a family Advent tradition?
One of our little elves had a lovely suggestion. Every year, include in your calendar a tree decoration. Your little ones can add it to the tree each Christmas and create a whole collection to cherish when they are older.

So many ideas to spoil your little ones without ruining yourself!

Create memories

“Good for” vouchers make great Advent calendar fillers! Great presents don’t need to cost much. Slip in “good for” vouchers and create special memories: whether it’s for an afternoon making Christmas cookies, playing a board game, a special outing to the ice rink or the cinema…

and give a good dose of love!

Finally, why not slipping in some of the treats a few loving or encouraging words, so they know how much you love them and are proud of them!

To stay in the spirit of Christmas, we suggest you have a little look at our special activity on the blog. An alternative to a traditional Advent calendar that suggests a list of 24 activities and good deeds to do in the countdown to Christmas.
Another idea to slip in your personalized Advent calendar!
