Advent calendars are one of those Christmas traditions that most people take for granted.
Every year I get an advent calendar from my grandmother, and although I appreciate her thoughtfulness, if she forgot to get me one I probably wouldn't buy them one for myself. They're exciting presents when you're a kid: not so much when you're a grown-up.
But what if someone was to come up with a new type of calendar, with a twist to make it more appealing to over 18s? What am I talking about? I'll tell you: British retailer Debenhams is offering the perfect Christmas deal this year: a pink-gin-themed chocolate advent calendar.
This awesome calendar, which was made in association with Gordon's Gin, comes with 23 pieces of 8g strawberry flavoured fondants covered in a deliciously-rich dark chocolate coating.
As if that wasn't cool enough, the very last window for Christmas day includes a 5cl bottle of Gordon's pink gin, with an alcohol-by-volume (ABV) of 37.5 per cent.
Best of all, these calendars are currently on offer for the low price of just £13 ($16.80), meaning it's a super-affordable present for the holiday season.For another festive treat, check out this Twisted recipe for Christmas pudding biscuit cake:
On Debenhams' official store, the calendar's product description states: "Countdown to Christmas with Gordon's and this indulgent Advent calendar. Enjoy a strawberry cream dark chocolate fondant every day until Christmas eve when a mini Gordon's Premium Pink Distilled Gin bottle is unveiled for a perfect celebration! The perfect adult Advent calendar to celebrate the Christmas countdown."
But this isn't the only awesome Christmas gift idea we've written about ready. If you want to beat the mad shopping rush, and you have a friend or relative who's in love with Harry Potter, then why not consider purchasing this cute Hogwarts-themed Christmas tree topper?
