Now that it is November (eeeeek! Where has 2017 gone?!) and Halloween is behind us, I can finally fully embrace my favourite holiday…Christmas. I love Christmas and I always get excited as we get closer to the big day itself. This time of year is made even more special when you have kids, seeing their little faces light up when visiting Santa’s Grotto and the buzz and mess when decorating the house.

Advent calendars are such a fun part of the lead up to Christmas, but I find it seriously boring to just buy the same old cardboard calendar each year (although there’s nothing wrong with a standard Cadbury’s one to be fair). I love that there are now so many creative and fun alternatives out there and the team at Bubblegum Balloons has stepped up to the mark with this amazing reindeer balloon calendar.

Pop a balloon a day to for a chocolate just like a regular advent calendar - but with more bang. Plus, it also doubles as a Christmas decoration. [I do love it when a product can multitask!] What’s not to love?

The calendar itself is easy to assemble and it will make the perfect gift both for your little one or yourself, if you’re a Christmas freak or a child at heart like me!
