In Search of an Advent Calendar

Everyone who has met me for five minutes knows that Christmas is my favorite holiday.  I love everything about it but most of all the traditions that come along with it once a year.  Growing up we had this Rudolph Advent Calendar and you would move the little soft reindeer through the pockets until you reached Christmas Eve.  I loved it and the anticipation of Christmas.  Unfortunately, some how it has gone missing from all of my mom's Christmas stuff so I am in search of a new one for our family.  Since we just had a baby, I thought this was a good time to start looking for one.  It's a hard decision to make and so far I haven't seen one that feels like THE one.  So, if anyone has any fun ideas or suggestions, I'm all ears!

Here's what I've sourced so far:

Land of Nod 

Mark and Graham 

Garnet Hill 

Pottery Barn
I'd like to find something cute that engages my child (and/or future children) so I like the idea of moving something or a spot for little mini gifts or treats for them to get every day leading up to Christmas.  I've got my eyes peeled...


  1. This is my dream one, although I'm not sure I'll ever have time to make it! Would love to see you and wee Forrest soon, but it may have to wait until our new little one arrives.

  2. OMG, Cameron, I had that Rudolph advent calendar with the numbered pockets, too! I wish I knew where it was!
