With Christmas just around the corner, we feel the joy of the merry Christmas season and start preparing for Christmas gift ideas and foods we will soon enjoy. Some of us *raises hand proudly* and cannot wait to create and love to design Christmas Advent Calendars.


Boozy Advent Calendar Tomintoul

As many of you would surely know, Advent Calendars consist of small gifts for each day of December leading to Christmas (1st – 24th December). Suppose you are looking for a Boozy Advent Calendar.


In that case, you can buy a ready-made one such as this Popp Advent Calendar for beer lovers (Jon’s favourite) or a Venchi Chocolate Advent Calendar for chocolate lovers (my favourite!!). You can make it a very personal Advent Calendar Malta by creating your own.

This selection of whiskeys, gins, limoncellos, brandys comes at a total cost of 105.73 euros. Feel free to change any items according to your personal preference and judgement.
