It’s not long after Halloween that we’re barraged by Christmas commercials and gift guides, completely skipping over Thanksgiving. While I usually like to wait until at least mid-November to start thinking about the holidays, there’s one gift I’m already excited to give — and receive: Benefit Cosmetics Countdown to Love Advent Calendar ($68, benefitcosmetics.com).
Like traditional advent calendars, it starts on December 1st and continues through the 24th as a countdown to Christmas. Each day you open the little calendar door and find a gift waiting. And in this Benefit-themed calendar, it’s great beauty products that you receive, like their Benetint Rose-Tinted Lip & Cheek Stain and their POREfessional Pro Balm primer, along with some small jewelry and hair accessory finds.
Because the advent calendar starts in December, it’s best to buy now and gift to your favorite friend or family member. It’s definitely one of the cutest holiday gift ideas we’ve seen in a while.
