5 Advent Calendars for Men

Last week while braving the wilds of Bolton the always lovely BeautyqueenUK and I ventured into a pub to grab something to eat before a heavy night out with my brothers. The pub already had their Christmas decorations up and it hit me like a ton of bricks that yes, Christmas actually isn't that far away. There have been a lot of posts for Beauty Advent Calendars across beauty blogs, the wife has found and written about over 50, yes 50 that are available for women. Once again though, there is a distinct lack of them for us blokes (pity us ladies) which is such a shame because I had quite fancied having a good choice to choose between this year after struggling to find just one at Christmas 2015. Anyway, all is not lost, there are a few out there and I've rounded them up for you lovely people below:

Clarins for Men - £95.  In the past I've found Clarins Men products to be a little bit hit and miss. Their eye creams are out of this world yet the having cream left me irritated in more ways than one. This 12-piece Clarins Men kit contains all of the skin care essentials for a radiant and healthy complexion and for me will give the perfect opportunity to decide one way or the other whether or not to look at other items in the range over the coming twelve months. 

Sadly it is out of stock but keep checking here just incase.

Craft Beer Advent Calendar 2016 - £60. This Calendar has 24 removable windows each revealing a shiny bottle of quality craft beer in 330ml bottles which includes IPAs, strong ales, porters, bitters, blonde ales and more. Available now for pre-order, this one looks like a great gift for ale lovers. This is one that the my friend should deffo consider for her husband as he is really into his craft beers.

Bath Body Collection Advent Calendar for Him - £29.98 on Amazon. This isn't anything I have come across before and it came up in a Google search. However, it does contain 24 surprises across a range of grooming products and a few useful grooming tools. Available now here.

5 Advent Calendars for Men

So there you have 5 advent calendars for you husband, boyfriend, dad, grandad, brother or friend and whilst we don't have luxury of over 50 like the ladies do (see the wifes post) there is at least some choice!

These can be very pricey, but for a novelty gift set to really get the Christmas spirit flowing in your home I think they are worth every penny. I haven't managed to get my hand on mine, my preference would have to be the Bearded Man Co and Bath Body Collection calendars - they contain products I know that I'll use and don't require a second mortgage to purchase. At under £30 they really do represent decent value for money.

  8. Great advents for men. I love the idea of surprises, but at the same time I never use all of the products in the advents. I saw some fab advents - Drinks by the Dram, I think, though never bought one.

  20. I love the idea but a bit too pricey for me

    ReplyDelete
  21. What a wonderful selection of advent calender's they are really nice.I might surprise my partner with one of these.

    ReplyDelete
  22. These look like brilliant advent calendars, I might just get the beard one for my partner :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. These are a great idea. You see so many advent calendars for women and hardly any for men!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Those advent calendars look great but I couldn't see my husband using one - he would prefer chocolate any day!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I actually never knew they did men's advent calendars but I'm glad they do as I had been thinking of getting my other half one. The bath and big works would suit him. The prices are ridiculous of some of them and I wouldn't dare spend that but under £30 is doable as I'd probably spend that on stuff I don't need at the supermarket every week!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh these look brilliant! Such fab ideas for the festive season. I made a beer advent calendar for my husband last year and he loved it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Its a shame that there arent more options for men. My bf however has his eye on the lego one! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. So last week my husband finally gave in and told me he wants skin care for Christmas! 10 years of telling him to look after his skin and finally he has cracked. This may just ease him into it!

  29. I love that you're sharing mens advent calender's as I've only seen women's ones. :)

  30. I love the advent calendar with the tools! That is a cool idea! My dad would love it!
