The countdown to the countdown of Christmas is on! With this year’s luxurious advent calendars including gin, rum, donations to charity and even CBD, thankfully the chocolate variety does still exist, so here’s Luxe Bible’s Pick of the Best Luxury Advent Calendars to get those festivities going!
Lindt’s LINDOR Pick & Mix
When you get a box of any of Lindt’s chocolates in your stocking, you know you’ve been good this year! So what could be better than that unmistakably silky-smooth taste of LINDOR’s Pick & Mix range every day in December? What’s more, you won’t know what’s behind the door because each choc will be surprise from LINDT’s range of 32 flavours including new nuxor milk, new excellence extra creamy and new matcha (who knew there were soooooo many?!) There’s a bonus bar included too but course you won’t wanna share that either!
