A few days ago I posted my Alternative Advent Calendars for the ladies. Today it’s the gents turn! I think sometimes they can get a bit left out. Especially as a lot of the alternative calendars in recent years have been aimed at Women and Kids (find my Kids recommendations, here), I mean most men wouldn’t want to open up a luxury beauty product on the run up to Christmas, would they! Fear not my masculine friends I have scoured the internet and have compiled some of the best Alternative Advent Calendars for him!
