Yes, it may still be August, but Christmas will soon be creeping up on us. And for those counting down, it’s 129 days away, to be exact.
And while it may be more than 100 days away until you can open the first door on your advent calendar, brands and retailers have revealed their must-have Christmas countdowns already - and some you can buy online right now.
Health and beauty retailer Boots has unveiled more than 40 different advent calendars this year, from socks and chocolate, to beauty and pampering.
Beauty advent calendars have grown in popularity over the past few years, and the line up of brands releasing festive countdowns in 2022 include the likes of No7, Soap and Glory, Liz Earle and Rituals, as well as Ted Baker and Laura Ashley.
