Have you heard of the latest craze- wine advent calendars?! I am in love with this wine gift idea and wanted to share some Alcohol Advent Calendars for anyone who missed out on the pre-filled Aldi ones.

Are you wondering, “What is a wine advent calendar?” Well basically a wine advent calendar (or beer advent calendar) is a container with 12 or 24 spots for wine bottles, beer bottle or spirits bottles, one for each day leading up to Christmas.
It didn’t start out that way….in case you care to know the history of advent calendars….but now there is a whole market for fun and unique advent calendars.
Think I’m kidding? Check out some of the fun Advent Calendars out there:
- Toy Advent Calendars (I have one word for you: LEGO!)
- Beauty Advent Calendars (Did someone say L’Occitane?! Yes, yes we did…)
- Jewelry Advent Calendars (My daughter would love the charm bracelet ones)
- Sock Advent Calendars (Mental note: Tell my cousin about Disney Sock Advent Calendars….)
So basically, advent calendars are a fun and funny way to count down the days to Christmas.
These would make a great holiday hostess gift, or great gift for a wine lover.
When it comes to alcohol advent calendars, you can buy pre-filled ones, or DIY Wine Advent Calendars where you add the wine, beer or mini liquor bottles yourself. I’ve got both listed below.
