1. Harry Potter Cube Advent Calendar

Hogwarts is known for concealing many secrets, and this Wizarding World–inspired advent calendar is no different. Each day, you can discover a new magical item, be it a character figure, miniature wand, pin badge, or snow globe.

This is one of the best Xmas advent calendars for fans of the Harry Potter books and live-action film adaptations, featuring beloved witches and wizards, such as Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.

2. Friends Sock Advent Calendar

If you’re anything like us, you believe that Christmas is a time best spent with those you love the most. And who embodies the idea of life-long companionship more than the stars of the critically acclaimed TV series Friends?

This calendar is a great way to relive the many episodes of the show, with each door revealing a pair of socks adorned with unforgettable quotes and imagery. Considering the temperatures at this time of year, we can think of no greater surprise than some feet warmers.

3. LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar

Did you know that the Star Wars universe has its own version of Christmas? It’s called Life Day, and it comes with traditions that bear an uncanny resemblance to those upheld by us ordinary Earthlings.

This LEGO advent calendar depicts Life Day in full swing, uniting both hero and villain in common cause. That’s right: a minifigure Darth Vader, wearing a holiday sweater, has put his red-bladed lightsaber to one side and offered his son, Luke Skywalker, a hand with the decorations.

4. Batman Coin Advent Calendar

Anyone who knows anything about the Batman mythos is aware that the Dark Knight has a difficult relationship with coins. On the one hand, he has the biggest penny you’ve ever seen in his Batcave. On the other, one of his greatest villains has based his entire persona on the flip of a coin — that’s Two Face, of course.

The difference between these collectables and those mentioned is that these coins feature the portraits of many famous (and infamous) characters, both vigilantes and rogues. That means they are perfect for fans of the Caped Crusader’s long history.

5. Dragon Ball Z Pop! Advent Calendar

Collectors of Funko Pop! Vinyl figures have no doubt already accumulated quite a large display. However, one can never have too many collectables, and if you’re a fan of Dragon Ball Z, you’ll find this opportunity too great to miss.

Featuring 24 of your favourite characters from the show (including Goku, Vegeta, and Piccolo), this advent calendar will allow you to line your shelves to the brink.

6. X-Wing Fighter Advent Calendar

If you’re someone who enjoys delayed gratification, this 1:57 scale replica model of the X-Wing starfighter from the Star Wars movies is exactly what you’re looking for. Divided into 24 parts, each of which is already painted and ready to assemble, this display piece rewards patience.

When the model is finally assembled, you’ll have a high-quality addition to your Star Wars collection. Now all you need is a TIE Dighter to recreate the best dog fights witnessed on the big screen.

7. Playmobil Asterix Pirates Advent Calendar

Next on our list of the best Christmas advent calendars is this pirate-themed product modelled after Asterix, the comic book series. This is a great choice for both adults and children, as it captures the absurdity of the adventures embarked on by the title character and Anticlimax.

The magically empowered duo have set their sights on a pirate ship, aided by nothing more than a simple rowboat. What’s more, both sea-faring vessels can actually float!

8. Revell RC Helicopter Advent Calendar

Take to the skies with this advent calendar, which includes a remote-control helicopter by Revell. Equipped with electric motors, this model kit can be assembled over the course of December, and when Christmas Eve arrives, you’ll have a fully functional miniature helicopter to pilot around the house.

9. LEGO Friends Advent Calendar

Celebrate your winter holidays with the residents of Heartlake City (from the LEGO Friends theme), who have set up their own Christmas market. This calendar is a great choice for kids, providing opportunities to roleplay with the included mini and micro-dolls as they visit Santa, feed the reindeers, and enjoy the many stalls.

10. Titanic Advent Calendar

Summon the Titanic from the depths of the Atlantic Ocean with this replica model, which is included as part of this advent calendar. There are 156 pieces in total, so you can take your time during assembly and marvel at the immense detail once it’s whole.

We don’t recommend testing its structural integrity on the water, though.
