2019 advent calendar comes with 12-and-a-half bottles of wine

There are plenty of things to look forward to when it comes to the festive holiday season, particularly for kids. There are plenty of wholesome, fun-for-all-the-family Christmas movies, masses of presents and then, of course, there are the advent calendars.

Advent calendars are great because not only do they gear us up for Christmas day, but they're also filled which delicious, bite-size pieces of chocolate. And we all know how much kids love sweets and chocolate.

But as you grow older, you may find that you have less of a sweet tooth and more of a palate for alcoholic beverages. So the more traditional, chocolate-filled advent calendars might be wasted on you.

Well, that's where the wine advent calendar comes in. Yep, wine advent calendars are an actual thing. In fact, you might even recall that last year, Aldi's very own wine advent calendar sold out within minutes.

The calendar contained 24 mini bottles of wine - the equivalent of six full-size bottles - and large crowds of customers arrived at their local Aldi to get their hands on one. Unfortunately, as stores had very limited stock, a lot of Aldi buyers were unable to purchase a calendar.

This is why Sophie Turner would be the perfect recipient of a wine advent calendar:

This year, however, you won't have to rely on Aldi for the chance to get your very own wine advent calendar.

Courtesy of GiveThemBeer.com, you can get a boozy calendar - similar to the one Aldi was offering last year - for $169. The calendar contains popular wine brands such as Robert Mondavi and Clois du Bois.

And although there is still a while to go before Christmas gets here, it would probably be wise to place your orders as soon as possible - before they're all sold out and you end up without one yet again.

Orders will be shipped in late November, just in time for the festive season!
