All I Want This Christmas

Available from Selfridges and Selfridges.com, £65

Mini products hide behind every door – from Lancôme’s Juicy Tube to Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb fragrance. Utterly amazing.

Fortnum & Mason’s

Available from the world famous gourmet department store fortnumandmason.com, £95.

This cute wooden calendar hides Fortnum & Mason goodies, including sugar mice, truffles and traditional chocolates. It’s pricey but you can refill it every year.

John Lewis House

Available from John Lewis or johnlewis.com, £35

This gorgeous wooden house will last for years and you can make it personal by filling the boxes with beautiful little gifts and chocolates.

La Maison du Chocolat

Available from La Maison du Chocolat: 45-46 Piccadilly, London, W1J 0DS, Harrods, Selfridges and online at lamaisonduchocolat.com, £45

This beautiful advent cube will delight chocolate fans. Twenty-four chocolate surprises from La Maison Du Chocolat – coconut praline, vanilla caramel, almonds covered in chocolate and other delicacies – salivating yet?

Green & Black’s

Available from greenandblacksdirect.com, £34

A traditional and simple 'tower block' style advent calendar made from organic cotton with a Green & Black's miniature bar in each pocket. Great for the eco-minded as it’s reusable and you can choose your favourite chocolates as part of your order.

Porsche Design

Available from Harrods and harrods.com, £618, 000

You'll need a sizeable mortgage for this advent calendar, but you will find a rose gold watch, fully customisable kitchen and a speedboat behind the doors. However, with only five calendars available this will have to remain on our Christmas wishlist.

The National Gallery

Available from The National Gallery, London or nationalgallery.org.uk, £6

A gorgeous calendar with painting details from the National Gallery collection behind every door. It comes with a large red envelope, perfect for sending as a gift.
