Advent Calendars, Refined

Fill December with grown-up treats.

One need not be a child to understand the appeal of the advent calendar. They are, after all, truly the gift that keeps on giving, and the prospect of receiving a little treat for each of December’s inevitably hectic days is enough to stoke even the most Scrooge-y of holiday spirits. But forget the stale chocolate packed in advent calendars past; this year, Thomas Haas, Drinks by the Dram, L’Occitane en Provence, and Parallel 49 & Central City Brewers and Distillers have created sophisticated calendars that might require every ounce of your grown-up self-restraint to keep from opening all at once.
