The 11 most luxurious beauty advent calendars for 2016

December is the only month of the year when we can legitimately wake up every morning expecting a present, thanks to the genius invention that is the advent calendar.

And in the build up to Christmas, nothing quite beats the suspense of trying, pre-morning-coffee, to find the correctly numbered little door on the calendar before ripping it open and triumphantly devouring the miniature chocolate Santa (or otherwise) that waits behind it.

Even better, this year there is a whole host of luxurious beauty advent calendars guaranteed to have you fist pumping the cold air with joy each and every December morning.

Whether you opt for an outrageously delicious Diptyque calendar, retailing at £250 a pop, or plump for a more affordable version, such as Cheeky’s gorgeous manicure calendar for £50, there’s a calendar to suit every budget.

So why not scroll through to upgrade your usual chocolate calendar for something a little more sumptuous...
