The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is bleak. That’s why we have Advent calendars, which give you something to look forward to every morning: opening that cardboard flap and finding a fun little treat. Unfortunately, the treat is typically just a waxy chocolate figurine. Cue the sad trombone.
This year, upgrade your Advent calendar and actually find something you want behind that cardboard flap. Here, six awesome Advent calendars for grown-ups to help you make it to Christmas.
Way better than your typical chocolate reindeers, the British chocolatier Prestat packs its shimmering Advent calendar with a variety of truffles filled with creamy ganache, caramel and nuts. $75; deananddeluca.com.
