Smiggle Advent Calendar: Review + Giveaway

October 13, 2017

If you are a regular to my blog you will know how much I love Christmas time. Every year I run a 25 Days of Christmas Giveaway from 01 December, and I have been busy for months arranging this year which is going to be bigger and better than ever. Christmas has been my favourite time of year since I was a child, and the love has only grown since having my own 5 children. What’s better than the day itself is the excitement in the lead up to Christmas Day – and there is no better way to mark down the days till Santa comes than with an advent calendar.

The world famous Smiggle Advent Calendar is BACK and better than ever! With more of what Smigglers love, it’s the best countdown to Christmas yet. This year’s advent calendar is filled with limited edition Smiggle stationery surprises (no chocolate in sight) worth over $70! Which means 25 days of fan faves that are sure to bring smiles and giggles.

We were sent a Smiggle Advent Calendar to review this week, and I would love to say I let the kids have a look and then put it away for December but it didn’t happen. The four youngest sat down and opened the doors in turn. My first two daughters (9 and 10 years of age) have been Smiggle lovers for years now, and the younger two got their introduction this week. Needless to say it was a huge hit: all four kids came away with a fist full of Smiggle goodies. We were all surprised at the fantastic quality of the gifts behind the doors – advent calendars in the past have either been a small chocolate or a tiny toy that ends up in the bin within a few days. These were all Smiggle gifts any child would love to own. There was more than enough for the four kids to share one calendar – if you were purchasing this for a smaller family they would be getting a whole lot of Smiggle items that’s for sure!

I am not going to spoil the surprises by letting you in on what you’ll find when you open the doors in your Christmas countdown, but I will say I guarantee you will love it.

The Smiggle lucky ticket competition has also returned and the prize is HUGE!! Find one of the lucky tickets and you’ll win a $1,000 Smiggle shopping spree. We all held our breath when we opened our ticket but we weren’t a winner – maybe you will be?

The Smiggle Advent Calendar gets a massive thumbs up from our household: not only on quality but on price: you can grab it now for $39.95! Purchase online here.
