Good Advent Calendars

Advent season quickly approaches so here is another christmas-related post!

Many of you may be on the lookout for a better calendar alternative this year, may this be with organic or fair trade chocolate or vegan cosmetics instead of conventional options.

I searched for one alternative for every section, so everyone should be able to find the perfect calendar down below 🙂


Chocolate

GEPA Adventskalender.

Mauritius themed calendar

GEPA is a corporation for fair trade buying produce directly from small farms to ensure a better income for the farmers as there is no third instance getting an amount of the money. Additionally GEPA pays a bonus, so that the world market price is exceeded.

DIY

It doesn’t always have to be material things to increase one’s anticipation for christmas. Self-made presents or coupons for some time together, a massage or a dinner are more personal and show that the one creating it invested a lot of time and thoughts.

The one below from Bow & Hummingbird offers a set of cards, couverts, clamps and stickers as well as cloze texts to be filled in.

There are many more options available, especially as I mainly searched in German shops, but this should give you a quick overview on what is possible to buy this year.

If you are going to choose one of the alternatives above or if you find my post to be inspirational, please let me see what you bought/created by tagging me on IG (a_little_bit_better). I would be happy to see a change this year 🙂
