Target is now selling an advent calendar filled with your favorite Reese's candies

Frankly, any attempt I make to keep myself and all of you up to date with every single exciting festive product release now seems entirely doomed to failure.

That's because brands have well and truly gone all out to win your Christmas custom this year, with a never-ending parade of astonishing holiday specials to keep the mouth watering and the bank balance creaking.

Netflix has announced its festive movie lineup, check out what's in store right here:

It starts, as all good things must, with Aldi. The budget supermarket has pulled out all the stops in anticipation of the most wonderful time of the year. Just in the last couple of weeks we've brought you news of their magical-sounding Harry Potter advent calendar, the much-hyped return of their sell-out smash hit wine advent calendar from years past, and much, much more.

For those of you who love Christmas as much as the titular hero from Will Ferrell's cult classic Elf, you can also place an order for one of these truly excellent Buddy-the-elf Christmas wreaths. I mean, just look at the pure ecstasy of the thing:

But if I still haven't comprehensively upped your excitement levels for the Christmas season, then maybe news of the latest big festive splash to hit store shelves will.

Yes, ladies and gents, hold on to your hats, because Target have just waded into the festive fray with a truly tantalising proposition: a Reese's advent calendar, chock full with all of your favourite Reese's candies.

The advent calendar will last you the regulation 24 days (unless you get a bit overexcited and start gorging on Reese's pieces days in advance), and is filled with classic Reese's favourites like Reese's Pieces and Miniatures.

If you want to get your hands on one of these puppies, Delish reports that the Reese's advent calendar is available on the Target website for just $5.99.

Have I succeeded in keeping you up-to-date with every festive product launch on the market? No, it would take a legion of writers to pull off such a lofty goal. But I'm doing my best, and that's got to count for something, hasn't it?
