I like the idea of the Hob nobs one, a biscuit to go with my coffee each day.
I think more that don't involve sweets for kids/pre teens. Dd would appreciate something with things like a pencil sharpener, an eraser, a key ring, all sorts of bits and bobs, like the contents of Christmas crackers, with an occasional chocolate thrown in.

Stationery blush

Fresh flowers.
You could have fun arranging them, you wouldn't be stuck with lots of extra clutter and by the time Christmas came your house would be lovely.
Just need to sort out the practical problems...

Diazepam. That'd be a great way to sail through December.

An advent calendar that magically has my keys behind each door so I don't do the 10 minute "where the fuck are my keys" dance every bloody day blush

Trinity grin

Everyone's giving me the giggles this morning.

I think from S&B it looks like a lot of people would like a perfume advent

A housework fairy one. Each day a job gets done for you.

@BikeRunSki I’m sure I’ve seen a Pringles one

Roystonv Mon 20-Nov-17 08:31:04

I thought you meant one that when you opened the door it gave you a prod as to where you should be up to in the Christmas plan or which said things like ' to late to order turkey' - a sort of Scrooge/alternative one that made you pissed off!

TheCountessofFitzdotterel Mon 20-Nov-17 08:51:20

Blamethecat - on second thoughts, I'll take your one!

What's this new fashion of 12 day calendars? Has Christmas moved?

Funny pictures of animals.
Charms to add to a bracelet/necklace.

I saw a cereal one the other day

PJs. A new clean fresh pair of pjs daily.

How does my 12 nearly 13 year old not know about Smiggle stuff.
I think I may get her one next year. I ended up with a House of Frasier make up one, they are on clearance for £12.50 She's enjoying playing about with make up lately. But it's not allowed at school.
