For the last few years we have bought Each a Lego advent calendar. He loves opening the doors to reveal something different to build. Peach is now old enough to see her big brother getting a small toy each day. So, to save arguments we found her a Playmobil one. Gone are the days when the Hubby and I had an advent calendar each. However this year I have been lusting after a candle one, just for me.

A couple of months ago, Lucy and I met with Heart and Home. They are a company that make unique scented candles and accessories for your home. They offered to send us out an advent calendar. Yay! My very own for the first time since having children. I think we often forget these little festive treats for ourselves and concentrate on the little ones.

When my lovely calendar arrived I could smell the amazing scents coming from the box. There are 24 doors. Each one with a different candle behind.



This years scents include:-

Christmas Spirit

‘A warming heart of brandied oranges blends with sweet butterscotch and winter spiced apples to bring cheer to all’

Snow Angel

‘Dreams of a white Christmas brimming with joyful memories and candied treats are captured in this sugared celestial scent’

Waiting for Santa

‘Brimming with sugared fruits and spices, this warming fragrance captures the magical anticipation of Christmas Eve’

Christmas Tree

‘The evergreen fragrance of Christmas fir trees and warming spiced wood are wrapped together in this magical festive aroma’

Winter Berries

‘Create a winter wonderland filled with frosted berries and comforting seasonal spices to warm even the coldest of days’

Christmas Cupcake

‘Warming and welcoming rich vanilla cupcake topped with sweet butter icing combine to create a temping festive treat’

Heart and Home Advent Calendar

I can’t wait for the 1st of December to arrive so I can open up my first door and start to fill our home with festive scents. I’m planning to burn a new candle each day throughout December in the lead up to Christmas.

What advent calendar have you been treated to this year?


Thank you Heart and Home for sending me this advent calendar so I can enjoy the count down to Christmas along with Each and Peach.
