The top 10 advent calendars you can buy now and save for December | The Sun

THE festive period is on the way, so you might be thinking about Christmas shopping already.

From Cadbury, to Galaxy, to Malteser, we've rounded up our top 10 advent calendars that you pick up right now in time for December.

There's no denying that December is an expensive month and many are often left scrimping through January.

So why not start as early as you can? It can save a lot of stress, and planning in advance and spreading out the cost ahead of December is a great way to take financial pressure off the festive season.

We found chocolate calendars going for as little as £1 but there are all manner of different options to choose from.

Of course, it's always worth looking around for the best deals and factoring in delivery costs on top.

Just because a retailer has products on sale that doesn't mean you can't find it cheaper elsewhere.

But without further ado, let's get into what you could get.

These could be more if you live further away, so make sure to check before you buy.

Sence Collection Advent Calendar

  • £15 – buy now from Boots

If you love a pamper and would rather get bath products rather than chocolate, this one is definitely a winner.

Including mini face masks, body mists and face washes, it's just the relaxing collection you might need to wind down this Christmas.

Galaxy Advent Calendar 

  • £2 – buy now from B&M

For such a classic choice, you may as well get it for cheap.

Remember delivery costs or, if it's easier, just run to the closest B&M to grab one.

It's worth noting the same one also sells for £2 in Iceland and Morrisons, so it's best to decide based on which is nearest.

Reese's Gravity Advent

  • £7 – buy now from Wilko

Peanut butter fans – we've found your possible favourite.

For a collection of mini peanut butter cups stuffed with pretzel pieces, head to your nearest Wilko.

Do note it's an extra £4.95 for standard delivery – and it's still another £2.95 if you just want to pick it up from a select location.

In that case, we recommend just visiting your nearest store.

Toffifee Calendar

  • £2 – buy now from Poundland

These are delicious hazelnut-filled caramel cups with a chocolate topping – and not too hard on your teeth, either.

We'd recommend visiting your nearest Poundland for more of a selection if you're not keen on these.

Right now, a lot are sold out online, and it's always best to avoid delivery costs where possible.

Maltesers Assorted Chocolate Truffles Advent Calendar

  • £8 – buy now from Tesco

Remember you can always use your Clubcard when shopping at Tesco to get even more deals – so it's worth a trip.

Tesco vouchers are given to customers who earn points throughout the year using their Clubcard.

One point is given for every £1 you spend in-store or online, or one point for every £2 you spend on fuel.

Cadbury Dairy Milk Advent Calendar

  • £1.50 – buy now from Asda

Another classic calendar – once more for cheap. Pick up this Cadbury calendar from your local Asda here.

Delivery may be cheaper if you buy it alongside a big shop, so if you're not doing that, it might be more worthwhile to go pick it up in person.
