One of the best things about Christmas is the countdown to the big day itself: Shopping for gifts, wrapping them, baking the cake, treating yourself to some new sparkly make-up and a party dress – we love all these festive milestones that get us in the mood. This year we’re making December even more exciting, as we’re bringing out these indulgent Advent Calendars – so that you can have a little pampering treat every day as Christmas gets closer and closer. We won’t spoil the fun by telling you what’s inside, but we think you’re going to love it!
