Now this isn't your ordinary advent calendar. No chocolate will be found in it, but lets be honest who needs chocolate when you get 25 days of stationery goodness. Priced at £25 you are actually getting yourself a bargain because inside those doors is £40's worth of smiggle products, some of which are limited edition so you won't be finding them in store.
I know what you're thinking, it isn't December yet so I shouldn't even be contemplating opening up the calendar yet, but I've never been one to be patient. But don't tell Santa because I haven't been that bad. Myself and my eldest daughter opted to open just two days so we could show you all what you can expect. The calendar is now safely hidden away ready for our countdown to Christmas.
The design of the calendar is brilliant. With Santa, Rudolph and and abundance of helpful elves pictured, it is bright, fun and oozes festive cheer. Smiggle's name is a mix of smile and giggle and I think this calendar makes us do just that!
Before opening the calendar I gave it a good shake, there was movement and noise to be heard, I'm now left wondering what stationery might jingle jangle around.
Behind door number one I discovered a snap bracelet and luckily for me it fit round my wrist perfectly, I have officially claimed it as my own.
And my daughter was even luckier than me because she uncovered a scented highlighter pen hiding behind door number two. It smelt just like apples mmmm.
If these two products are anything to go by then December is going to be a good month!
But the treats don't end there. In every calendar there is a ticket waiting. There are 10 golden tickets to be found and if you are one of the lucky ticket holders you get to have a £250 spending spree at Smiggle.
Unfortunately I wasn't one of the lucky winners but that's good news for you lot because that means there are still tickets to be found!! But if you are unlucky like me you can register at www.smiggle.co.uk for a second chance at winning.
So why not deck the halls with Smiggle's innovative advent calendar this year?
