We all remember that excitement when we were kids of flipping the calendar to December. It meant Christmas was almost here and we can start our chocolate Advent Calendars! One little chocolate a day was a regular reminder of what was to come. Santa, gifts, food, family and a festive good celebration. Well counting down to the big day, isn’t just for kids anymore. Here are some great DIY Advent Calendars for Adults that you can make as a gift or create a new household tradition.

1. Beer Countdown Tree

This one has to be my husband’s favorite! Start stacking up his favorite beer in canisters and when he opens it each day, it will be a surprise of what he can have that day. I like to stop at local craft breweries and pick up some seasonal varieties he’s never tried before.


2. Lotto Advent Countdown

Are you feeling lucky? Create a poster board with pockets and include a variety of lotto tickets. There are so many holiday themed scratch tickets this will be a lot of fun to make. Also, you never know, you could win big bucks just in time for Christmas!

3. Wine A Day

Like you need an excuse to try a new wine! This Advent calendar will have you thinking about the coast of California, Rhine Valley in Germany and Niagara on the Lake in Canada. Get ready to load up the wine rack with a different bottle of the day in this clever calendar. This is just the countdown that I might consider sharing.


4. K-Cup Wreath

Don’t toss those K-Cups after you make your coffee, because you can turn it into a great Christmas surprise! With some tissue paper and a wreath frame you can really have a great time making this wreath that serves as both decor and a gift giver. Small gifts like candy, notes or puzzle pieces make great daily surprises.

Take your Christmas decor to a whole new level with this banner ribbon advent calendar. With basic wooden clothespins and some ribbon you can make your very own Clothespin Countdown. Whether you want to fill them with activities, a treasure hunt of where a small gift is or a good deed, this is a great way to countdown to Christmas.
