New work of art for your home

An Advent Calendar is not new to us. But what will make it new is the surprise inside it everyday. Make it interesting everyday and you can add some suspense to it.

Things that you will put on each date will depend on your child’s wants and likes. You can always play around with the items that you will put in, but for now this is just to give you some ideas.


First of all you will require an boxed Advent Calendar (this is where you will place your surprises). We will start on Day 1 up to day 25. Your gifts should be interesting each and everyday, that will bring excitement everyday. The 25th day should be a  really special surprise. It should be unique and the very wish of your child. Let us divide the days and have a theme on each part.

Day 1 to 6 “Spoil their sweet tooth”

Every child loves sweets, it makes them happy and smile after a bad day or simple

Day 1: Small treats will do like candies or lollipops.

Day 2: Freddo Frogs or Caramello Koalas

Day 3: Notes for a treasure hunt and bury a jar with treat in the garden

Day 4: Mini cupcakes that you make

Day 19 to 24 “Toys toys for your Child”

These toys are not just toys but educational toys that your child will enjoy at the same time learn from it.
