Advent calendars: They’ve come a long way from the cardboard sleeves filled with grocery-store chocolate that you give to kids who can’t hold out until Christmas Day. Now, there are great advent calendars for everyone in the whole family, whether you’re looking for gifts for kids, gifts for moms or gifts for dads.
When it comes to that last category, dads — or any of the men in your life — might be looking for something other than your typical chocolates or classic toys. If you’re looking for an advent calendar that suits his particular interests, check out the best advent calendars for men in 2022. They have everything from jerky treats to face masks to fishing gear and pretty much every type of booze under the sun. And yes, there are even some chocolate and toys as well. The catch: You’re running out of time to get them if you still want the man in your life to start opening up those doors on December 1! (And some sell out, so it’s best to get a move on.) Here are the Good Housekeeping favorites.
Once you’ve gotten that taken care of, are there any others on your list who need a fun advent calendar? Good Housekeeping has inspiration for cool advent calendars for beauty mavens, wine drinkers, sock collectors, booze drinkers, cheese fans and more.
