As much as we love chocolate (who doesn’t?) I can’t resist the fantastic selection of alternative advent calendars available to buy. Last year I shared a selection of our favourite non-chocolate advent calendars and today I am going to share my favourites for 2018.
The big chilli advent calendar from Sous Chef is a great alternative advent calendar choice for those who like to experiment in the kitchen. This advent calendar comes with a selection of 25 chillies (in the form of whole chillies, powder and flakes) and a recipe book packed full of must-try recipes so that you can enjoy the contents to their fullest potential.
The individual chilli sachets are suitable for vegans, vegetarians and are also gluten free; the recipe book provides an array of recipes suitable for most dietary requirements. See the Big Chilli Advent Calendar in more detail on my YouTube channel (Contains spoilers!).

The Smiggle advent calendar is always a popular choice and I can see why, it includes 25 days of limited edition Smiggle stationery – most of which is fun, colourful and smelly! See the Smiggle advent calendar in more detail on my YouTube channel (contains spoilers!).
