Advent Calendars for Tween Girls


I have recently been searching for Advent Calendars that I thought Gee might like as she is not that bothered about chocolates but is becoming increasingly interested in make up.  A lot of the store advents seem quite expensive though, so I managed to find a few that would be ideal.



Mad Beauty Advent Calender
The Mad Beauty advent calendar includes: 2 x Lipsticks, Powder Compact, 3 x Nail Polish, 3 x Lip Gloss, 2 x Lip Gloss, 2 x Eye Shadow, Eyeliner Pencil, Lip Liner Pencil, Blusher, Blusher, Sharpener, Toe Separator, Lip Brush, Blush Brush, Nail File, Applicator and Nail Stickers.  The Mad Beauty Advent Calendar is available from Find Me a Gift and costs £16.99.






Technic London Bus Cosmetic Advent Calendar
I love the British feel to the new Technic Cosmetic Advent Calendar.  This includes: 3 Nail Polishes, Bronzing Compact, 3 Lip Glosses, 3 Eye Shadow Compacts, Eyeliner, Lip Pencil, Mascara, 3 Lipsticks, Nail Stickers, Emery Board, Mirror, Pencil Sharpener, Blusher Brush, Toe Divider and Blusher. Priced at £14.95 it is available from Just My Look.


12 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar
This calendar includes: 1 x Hand Cream (Savannah Fragrance), 1 x Body Lotion (Savannah Fragrance), 2 x Bath Salts (Savannah Fragrance), 2 x Bath Fizzer (Savannah Fragrance), 1 x  Body Wash (Savannah Fragrance), 1 x Lip Balm (Cherry), 1 Lip Balm (Strawberry), 2 x Nail File and 1 x Body Puff.  I love this calendar as everything in it is so Christmassy, priced at £9.99 it is available from Find Me a Gift.


Hanging Envelope Advent Calendar
For something a little different this is a beautiful Hanging Envelope Calendar which includes 24 Christmas Themed Envelopes, 24 Mini Wooden Pegs and 3 Festive Golden Strings to hang them from.  These would look perfect as a decoration on their own or could be filled with a little surprise for each day of Advent.  Priced at £6.99 it is available from Born Gifted.



Create a Pakkekalende of Your Own
Or you could create your own advent calendar by wrapping 24 small gifts and hang them from a decorated coat hanger, this is a Danish tradition and looks really effective.  I found a great website that offers quirky gifts at really good prices called UK Flying Tiger something to amuse the kids for hours.

Have you seen any calendars that would be perfect for older children that may be suitable?

I was sent some of these items for the purpose of this post but the opinion is my own.
