Let’s be honest: it’s not easy to get out of bed on cold Winter mornings. But luckily December 1st is around the corner! Advent calendar presents will make us jump out of the sheets in excitement for our daily presents in the run up to christmas.
You don’t have a calendar yet? Well be quick and get yourself one of those twenty four day surprises! We chose some unique advent calendars for you, three from Berlin and an extra one from Hamburg. Enjoy our selection after the jump.
KreuzbergKalender – Fun with friends for a good cause
This innovative concept is the perfect advent calendar for flatmates, colleagues or groups of friends. Each day you receive an email with a fun riddle that you’ll need to solve with your team. Each riddle reminds the group of a news story from the year 2015 and sparks memories of the past year.
Costs: 15 € (including 1 € donation to the Berliner Kältehilfe) via KreuzbergKalender
TypeHype – Pretty wrapping to fill with tons of love
Making your own advent calendar is pretty much the pre-Christmas equivalent of saying „I love you“. The pumpy road to take leads past 24 cool gifts and one pretty presentation. You’ve just found the latter and this is so top notch that it almost doesn’t matter what you pop inside.
Costs: 27 € via TypeHype in Rosa-Luxemburg-Str. in Mitte.
Adventsdorf – A tiny house for each day
The interior architecture studio Albert Concepts from Berlin came up with a sweet idea for the crafty types amongst you. Every day in December until the 24th they will release a download on Facebook for a modeling sheet to create a little house made of paper. Each house is designed by a different designer and all of them will assemble the Adventsdorf. Cute idea!
Cost: free, available on Facebook
And one more bonus comes from Hamburg:
Foodist Adventskalender – A daily treat for Gourmets
99% of all standard advent calendars contain chocolate and mostly not even of the best quality. Luckily the food experts from Hamburg-based gourmet shop Foodist have their own advent calendar that is filled with the most delicious little treats for the sophisticated palates.
Costs: 44,90 EUR, available online
