Advent Calenders generally bring to mind Christmas I know, but they make great gifts to put aside for the following year! Well mostly because many of you are looking for them right now to get them ordered before the start of Advent. Also because if you are like me, you are probably looking for some out of the box and not so typical ideas. I don't want to give my kids candy, and I want something a bit more than the standard calendar.
