23+ Crafty Advent Calendars That Make Great Gifts

Craft-based advent calendars are usually a DIY effort. But if you don’t want to make your own this post is for you!

Pick up one (or two) of these Crafty Advent Calendars to fill your December with creativity!

Everything in the Box Kits

These craft-based advent calendars are a one stop shop for creativity. You may need a few extra art cupboard staples like glue and markers, but these are relatively self-contained kits.

We loved the Crayola one so much we’ve gotten it twice!

Story-Led Crafty Books

These amazing books combine a Christmas story with a daily activity. You’ll need to bring together supplies for each day, but the heart warming story will keep you coming back and on track.

Strictly Activity-filled Books for Kids

Without fancy stories, these books hop right into the activity. Some only need a pen and markers, while others are craft instruction manuals that you’ll need to supply extras for.

I’m really intrigued by the Adventivity Book. How cute would creating a paper village over the month be? Plus there’s another daily activity to do!

Advent Activity Books for Adults

Christmas isn’t just for kids! Adults can have a craft-based advent calendar full of things to do with these books. For example, I adore the Gnome colouring book, don’t you?

Religious Books

Advent is a very special time for Christians. The following books combine crafting with daily or weekly devotionals. As a result they would make a beautiful enhancement to the typical commercial advent calendar.
