WHOA! My first advent calendar


Last year, I was surprised to find my roommate decorated our apartment for the holidays and a huge wall advent calendar!  I’m going to be honest, I never really knew about advent calendars before then (don’t at me…I’m Asian LOL). But I thought it was to most fun and thoughtful gift ever!

She used nails to hang ribbon along the wall and used tiny clothespins to hang the bags that she decorated with the dates. If one of the gifts was too heavy to hang with the bag, she left the bag empty and hand delivered it to me.

Everyday from December 1 to the 25th, I had a gift to open! I totally felt like a kid again.  All the gifts had a self-care theme, I received beauty products, nail polishes, body cream, body washes, ect. Ultimately, my Christmas gift was a gift card to for a massage!   

I’m sharing this to inspire you to try this out yourself for a special person in your life whether it be your friend or child.  It’s a sure way to make the person feel extra special. 

A big special THANK YOU to my roommate, Lisa for inspiring this post. She’s the best gift giver ever!

Here’s a quick video of the surprise and me opening one gift (warning: explicit language at the end).
