After 12 years in Adelaide I know the tradition: once the Christmas pageant has been and Santa has been welcomed into town the Christmas tree goes up. With just six weeks to go until the big day there are lots of people eagerly staring at the calendar and Smiggle is ready to help you count down in style:
The brand new Smiggle Advent Calendar 2018 (RRP $39.95) is here and it’s packed with awesome Smiggle goodies valued at over $70 that will have young Smiggle fans squealing with excitement!
Let’s start by saying that I am usually a very patient person. I love surprises, not knowing what’s ahead is so much fun and the waiting is definitely part of the whole experience. Every year people ask if me if I know what’s going to be hiding behind these 25 little doors and the truth is that I simply don’t know!! All I know is that in previous years my kids have been thrilled with their little advent gift every single day and that they end up with so many cool Smiggle finds at the end of the countdown. They love getting stationery items that are fun and useful and I am glad to avoid the traditional advent calendar sugar overdose, it’s a double win.
But, because I love my readers and don’t want to let you down I have allowed each of my little people to open one magical calendar door and have a quick sneak peek… I had to promise our friends at Smiggle not to give too much away but take it from me, it’s looking mighty fine behind the doors this year! We’ve spotted rainbow highlighters, a spy pen, a mini stapler, a fruity scented slap band, tiny sticky notes and there are plenty more limited edition items to be discovered.
The Smiggle Advent Calendar sells out every year so make sure you grab yours in time to avoid disappointment. Bring on December 1 so the official count down can begin!
Bonus: As if 25 gifts is not enough each Smiggle Advent Calendar comes with a special envelope that could hold 1 of 25 lucky tickets. If you are the lucky finder of one of these highly coveted tickets you will take home a Christmas gift to remember: a $1000 Smiggle shopping spree! Sadly we didn’t find one but I have my fingers crossed for all of you.
