Our verdict

You don’t always need to splash the cash to inject some spice into your relationship. Sometimes you just need a little inspiration, and that’s what this affordable calendar can offer.

Behind every window is a selection of three different activities to do with your partner. They may be sexual, fun or adventurous. And there’s even a good selection of things that are quick and easy if your busy lives leave you short on time.

Some of the suggestions can be innocent and then some can be very racy. And that’s part of the excitement. You never know what you’re going to get behind each window. Customers say not only does this Advent calendar add spice but the romantic and fun suggestions also help with intimacy and reconnection.


Best budget

Ann Summers 24 Day Chocolate Advent Calendar, £6

What we like
  • Perfect for a budget

  • Filled with 24 delicious chocolates

What we don't like
  • Not suitable for vegans and dairy-intolerant

Key specs

RRP on writing: £6 | Contains: 24 chocolates | Release date: Available now | Ingredients: Milk chocolate with sugar, cocoa butter, whole milk powder, cocoa mass, soya lecithin, and vanilla extract

Our verdict

Okay… So, this one isn’t technically filled with sex toys. But, if you’re on a budget this festive season, this Advent calendar from Ann Summers is a great choice that won’t break the bank.

It’s traditional in the sense that you get 24 delicious chocolates leading up to the big day. But in true Ann Summers spirit, they are willy-shaped. Not suitable for children, so may be worth keeping out of sight. Although you could always say they’re bells should they accidentally find them… As well as chocolate, each window has a fun or sexy suggestion for you and your partner. Sex and chocolate? Talk about a perfect pairing…

The cock ring is designed to slip on to the base of the penis for a new level of intensity.

If you don’t already own a Womanizer vibrator, this Advent calendar may be the best way to get your hands on one. On its own, the Womanizer Classic 2 is worth £119. So, for just a little extra, this bundle offers 23 more toys to play with.

Our verdict

This exciting Advent calendar features Lovehoney’s popular Dream Wand. This vibrator is great because it looks like a back massager, so it’ll spare your blushes if anyone accidentally stumbles upon it.

The vibrator has seven different vibration patterns and four levels of intensity so you can really customise it to suit you. It’s ideal for clitorial stimulation, with some reviews saying you can enjoy a powerful orgasm in minutes. Similarly, the bullet is small in size but oh so powerful and its compact design makes it perfect for travel. Perhaps something you could pack with you if you’re spending Christmas away from home?

Something customers suggested is fully charging the toys ahead of time if you’re buying this as a gift. They are all partially charged but for maximum pleasure, you don’t want the toys to finish before you do!

Intense orgasms are one thing, but feeling connected and close to your partner can also be another big goal for the bedroom.

How we chose our recommendations

First up, we thoroughly researched this year’s offerings as the anticipation and excitement builds around their releases. 

Next, we sought out the trusted opinions of Mumsnet users to get their feedback on their favourite sex toy brands, toys and accessories. And, if there’s one thing we know when it comes to sex for our Mumsnet users - the Womanizer reigns supreme. There are many dedicated threads on our Talk boards about this year’s Advent offerings, featuring many users on our Sex board sharing the ones they’re lusting after this year. 

Then, we scoured the Internet to see the Advent calendars for 2023 on offer and looked through the customer reviews to see whether they were worth the splurge or not.
