Countdown to Christmas in style with these beautiful stationery advent calendars.

As much as we love celebrating the day itself, there’s something extra special about the build-up to Christmas. And while the start of December may be some time away yet, that means we’ve already started thinking about one important detail: advent calendars.

Gone are the days when chocolate advent calendars reigned supreme – these days, finding an advent calendar that suits you and your interests is relatively easy. And that includes those of us who love nothing more than buying new stationery.  

Alongside the wide array of stationery gifts on the market, there are a growing number of stationery advent calendars available to buy, each offering its own unique variety of pens, notepads, washi tape and more.

The only problem? Because there are still a limited number of stationery advent calendars on the market, they tend to sell out pretty fast – so you’ll need to act quickly to get your hands on one. Keep reading to check out our edit of the best calendars on the market for 2021. 

P.S: we haven’t listed what comes in each of the calendars below (to allow you to maintain an element of surprise), but if you click through to each of the companies’ websites, you’ll be able to find more information.

    After yet another sell-out success last year, the team at Martha Brook is bringing back its stationery advent calendar once again for 2021 – and it looks incredible. With a design inspired by Matisse and his cut-out creations, the calendar comes with 24 days’ worth of stationery items just waiting to be uncovered.

    And thanks to the company’s “love the planet” ethos, the calendar is also environmentally friendly – it’s partially made from disposable coffee cups and is 100% recyclable with no plastics. Plus, the team will be releasing a guide outlining “the myriad of different ways” the calendar’s packaging can be reused after Christmas.
