I decided to make an adult themed Advent Calendar for my husband Shaun.  I chose different things and little presents that I wrapped and put on each day, so he has a little surprise in the run up to the Christmas.

When I was printing out and looking for the Christmas jokes.. I was laughing to myself, such silly things but definitely brightened up my day!!!

You can of course personalise it as you wish!! Each day had a little something and the present for Christmas day was not a present at all but a card with a little reminder of the true meaning of Christmas..

I created the calendar using some leftover pallet wood and turned them into a Christmas Tree (sorry for the bad quality image, I was too busy trying to get it right!).  I painted the tree using some green and brown paint I had at home.

Here are just a few of the ideas on what you could put in your calendar…

– miniature aftershave

– scratch cards;

– free pass to do the dishes;

– 5£ note

– quote about love (to remind him how lucky he is to have me! 🙂 )

– chocolate

– miniature alcohol bottle

– toiletries

– beauty products for men

– pouch with pound coins  – enjoy Snooker

– socks

– funny boxer shorts

– TV for the day (I am sure I will regret this one!)

– Kiss me sweets

– miniature sudoku

– Jokes

– Did I say chocolate already? 😀

I got these lovely advent calendar numbers here and glued them on the wood, then simply put a little nail for each date, so I could tie the presents on.

YES I know it is a lot cheaper to actually buy one, but this type of Advent calendar is ONE OF A KIND! And I hope this shows my hubby how special he is to me 🙂

What do you think?
