Get your goggle eyes on because these are things of beauty (and price tags).

12 windows, 12 mini treats
The first eleven windows contain:
Magic Cream (mini)

K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick (mini)

Kérastase have launched their first ever deluxe Advent Calendar
For €99, you can get your paws on some follicle delights.
Behold the pretty hairy things
Inside you'll find some of Kérastase's hero products including Nutri Thermique, Densité, Resistance, Elixir Ultime and more.
And shhhhh, there's a surprise
On day 25 there's a full sized Elixir Ultime Solide that's designed to tackle frizz and split ends.
Fortnum & Mason's Advent Calendar
The iconic store has brought out a version that's wooden, musical and gives me all the nostalgia feels.
Is this the Emperor's new Advent Calendar?
Spoiler - there's nothing in it.
I mean, it IS gorgeous. It's wooden and musical and it's decorated with the façade of their Piccadilly store. And the best bit? When you open each door, a different Christmas tune will play.
If you were going to start a tradition of filling this for a loved one every year, then this is just flipping beautiful. And I think I'd get a bit emosh opening it. But yes, you are paying €175 for 24 empty little windows.
Jo Malone's Advent Calendar had us drooling all over our desks
The traditional Georgian townhouse design is in the brand's signature colours of black and creamy yellow and gave us a severe case of The Wants.
What's behind the 24 little doors of magic?
You'll find some of the beauties below in your calendar:
- Lime Basil & Mandarin 9ml Cologne
- Pomegranate Noir 9ml Cologne
- Red Roses 9ml Cologne
- English Pear & Freesia 9ml Cologne
- Blackberry & Bay 9ml Cologne
- Wood Sage & Sea Salt 9ml Cologne
- Orange Blossom Body Crème
- Lime Basil & Mandarin Body Crème
- Velvet Rose & Oud 9ml Cologne Intense
- Dark Amber & Ginger Lily 9ml Cologne Intense
- Pomegranate Noir Body Crème
But you might want to save up if you want this delivered to your house
It will cost the elves €320 to prepare this for your festive delectation.
Damn it, it's pretty though.
Diptyque's First Advent Calendar
The French fragrance house launch their first Advent calendar with 25 mini doors of gorgeousness.
If you'd like to open this fella, you'll need to book a shopping trip to Selfridges and have a spare £250 to hand over.
Shall we take a peek inside?
The calendar has a mix of mini candles, 10ml eau de toilette bottles and some body care products.
And if you just can't wait to poke open the windows, here's exactly what you'll find within:
- 15 x 35g candles
- 1 x 70g candle
- 7 x 10ml Eau de Toilette
- 1 x 15ml Rich Body Butter
- 1 x 15ml Precious Oils
Will you be picking up a fancy schmancy Advent calendar this year?
And if money were no object, what brand would you like to make an Advent Calendar just for you? Armani, YSL, Tiffany? And tell me, what would be in it?
I think I'd opt for AIB and have a wad of cash behind each window. Festive, wha'?
