Has anyone seen a paper advent calendar yet?

(16 Posts)

It took me ages and a trip to A&E with DS2 to locate a proper old-fashioned paper advent calendar last year. DS1 asked me to put it away to use again this year grin but I don't think it will cut the mustard.

Has anyone seen any? I don't want cheap chocolate or bloody Lego pieces, and I'd far prefer a Christmas scene over a TV character.

Am also looking at the reusable versions.

TIA

Are you anywhere near a van Hage garden centre? They have lovely traditional ones.

There are loads on Ebay. This is the first I came across but there are hundreds more. I found some lovely ones in Clintons Cards last year too.

I saw quite a few at one of those pop-up shops last week, might be called Calendar Shop or similar, they often appear in town centres at this time of year

Oxfam usually have them

Spotted the paper Santa advent calendar in Ikea today. It had paper boxes which pulled out so you could put your own items inside.

Sorry can't do links as on phone but you can see it here -
