When I had everything together (which was basically on the last day of November), I put everything I had in 24 striped candy bags , embellished them with numbers (free printable here) and closed them with some washi tape. Since I lacked a box in a proper size, I made one myself using some leftover cardboard and the same washi tape. Et voila! Simple and yet so beautiful! The boyfriend is happy, too!
What he found in his calendar so far: A different bag of tea every day (yeah, we're kind of tea addicts), today was chai tea. A small Christmas ornament. A small bag Jack Link's Chicken Bites Curry (You know, he's a guy. Guys love meat for some reason). Lots of Chocolate. No Advent Calendar without chocolate!
We're just three days in and I usually start slow so much more, and more exciting stuff, is about to come! I'll make sure to post some updates. Be excited for the St. Nicholas Day project!
