Smiggle

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.

Smiggle

For most of this year we’ve been counting down until our baby’s arrival, without a doubt the highlight of the year. A crazy as they are about him, now that baby Ted is finally here the other kids are quickly moving on to the next big thing on our agenda: Christmas! With just 10 weeks to go time is rapidly ticking away so I better get my act together and start my Christmas preparations, are you on track with your shopping?

At Smiggle they know all too well how much kids love counting down to a special date, event or milestone, which is why they have put together this gorgeous collection of surprises just in time for Christmas:

Behind 25 secret little doors the magical Smiggle Advent Calendar (RRP $39.95, ages 6+) is hiding 25 awesome pieces of Limited Edition Smiggle stationery and gifts. Starting December 1st Smiggle fans can open one door daily to find a new gift every single day, what a great way to count down the days until Christmas morning!

Each calendar holds more than $70 of Smiggle goodies, making this Advent Calendar amazing value for money and much kinder on your children’s teeth than the chocolate alternative. I love the wide variety in gifts as it means there is something fun for everyone and you can even share the calendar as a family taking turns opening the doors.

Our curious tribe of kids was more than willing to take a sneak peek behind a few of the doors, giving Santa’s helpers a tiny taste of what Smiggle has in store this Advent season. From funky erasers to cute pencils, from cool wristbands to teeny notebooks and so much more, this calendar is bound to bring smiles every morning. Don’t worry, we’ll be good from here on and leave the remaining doors closed until December. I wonder what other fabulous finds are waiting for us?

But wait, there is more! As if 25 colourful Smiggle goodies aren’t enough of a gift already, Smiggle has also tucked away a bunch of lucky tickets in their Advent Calendars. You could just be the lucky person who finds 1 of 25 highly sought-after Smiggle Lucky Tickets, which means you have scored a huge $1000 Smiggle shopping spree. The sad news is that we didn’t find one, the good news is that means more chances for you. Good luck!
