  • The lego one inspired me to build my own box/shelf out of lego, with little windows that you can open for each day and add your own gift! Go lego!!!


  • There are some really amazing ones, so good that there are no chocolate in sight.


  • Aw I love the body shop one ! And think the Lego advent calendars are awesome for kids ! Once I have a money tree growing on my back, I’ll consider buying them.
