It's Advent Calendar Day! Advent Calendar Gift Ideas for Mom

Today is Advent Calendar Day!

This fun commemorative "holiday" was introduced by the supermarket chain Aldi in 2020. They offer a variety of popular calendars each year and came up with the holiday to mark their release date. That makes today a great day to think about what advent calendar you might want to use in a few weeks, and if you'd like to give any advent calendars as gifts to your loved ones, family, and friends. And don't forget mom!

Popular advent calendars sold by Aldi include their wine, beer, cheese, and European chocolate calendars.

The variety in types of advent calendars is astounding. You can find more than the traditional chocolate and other edible treats featured behind advent calendar doors. For kids, there are calendars for all kinds of interests, from dinosaurs to makeup and superheroes to magic, crafting, and much more.

Different types of advent calendars are aimed at adult audiences, as well. Here are some great choices if you 're looking to give an advent calendar to your mom! An advent calendar can count down to Christmas, but it can be used to count down to other events as well -- like maybe your visit home to mom this holiday season.
