Christmas Advent Calendar Prettiness | Sparkling Sugar Cookies And Enchanting Wax Melts

The beginning of December is always such a special and magical time and there is no better way to count down the days until December 25th than with a pretty and girly advent calendar. Although I do still love my chocolate ones and definitely have one of those too, I wanted to share with you a couple of gorgeous advent calendars that make the perfect girly treat for each day in December…

The first advent calendar is from a lovely little company on Instagram called Pretty Little Waxwho make all sorts of enchanting and beautiful wax melts. You may remember that I featured some of their pumpkin wax melts in my autumn blog post so I was really excited when I saw that they were going to be releasing an advent calendar. I’ve been loving burning wax melts this year as I like to use my white electric wax melt burners from Scentsy and they make my whole house smell amazing. I have one in my living room downstairs and one in my upstairs hallway and I like to vary the scents so that each floor smells different, although I do always tend to go for the really sweet scents! 

There were a couple of different advent calendar options to choose from but I decided to go for the 25 days of Christmas option so that I would have a new wax melt to change each day in December. The packaging of the advent calendar is beautiful as it comes in a lovely wintery white box with sparkling silver snowflakes and is tied up with a pretty grey ribbon bow so it would also be lovely for a gift idea if you know anyone else that likes wax melts.

Behind each door, you get an adorable little Christmas shaped wax melt in lots of pretty colours sprinkled with glitter and there are snowmen, stockings, Christmas trees, candy canes, presents and even little Santa Clausfaces. The scents are a lovely mixture of Christmassy fragrances including Hot Chocolate, Baked Apple Pie, Cranberry And Orange, Sweater Weather, Pumpkin Spice Latte, Candy Cane, Gingerbread, Pine, Frosted Plum and Mince Pies. I think my favourites have to be the sweet little baby pink candy canes which smell so sugary and yummy! 

The other gorgeous advent calendar that I have to enjoy this year is this stunning pastel sugar cookie one from Catherine Marie Cake. I purchased some of her beautiful postal Halloween cookies in October and they were so pretty and perfect that when she announced that she was going to be doing Christmas treats, including a postal advent calendar, I was far too excited! 

The advent calendar came packaged in a lovely little clear box with a cream satin ribbon bow and contains 24 different little square sugar cookie bites, one for each day of December until Christmas Eve. There are so many pretty pastel designs ranging from sparkling snowflake mittens, cute bobble hats, fairytale Christmas trees, candy canes with bows, snowflake stockings and the most adorable little snowmen in pretty candyfloss pinks, icy baby blues, shimmering whites and sparkling gold accents. They are truly a work of art and I’ve been keeping mine out on display in my kitchen!

Even though they are really pretty and almost too lovely to eat, I have brought myself to enjoy one each day and they are delicious. The sugar cookies are so light and yummy and the icing is sugary sweet perfection. I’ve been loving having mine each night with either a cup of tea or a hot chocolate in a festive mug in front of my twinkling Christmas tree. I’ve also ordered some of her stunning Christmas cookies and a pink gingerbread treat box to enjoy and I can’t wait for them to arrive! 

What is your favourite kind of advent calendar?
