We all know it’s not just kids who get into the fun of counting down to Christmas Day. In fact, some might find the act of getting a little surprises for the 24 days leading up to Christmas more fun than Christmas morning itself, since the big day can be overwhelming with so many other things to think about.
If you’re looking for a way to celebrate with the main guy in your life, you might want to consider one of these cool advent calendars for men. Whether he’s a foodie, a pop-culture fanatic or a beer- or spirit-drinker, you can find him a Christmas advent calendar where he gets just a little something to brighten each day.
Our favorite advent calendars for men for 2021 cover a range of interests. The most popular tend to be the spirit advent calendars, which let you try selections of whiskey, gin, rum, tequila and beer from around the world. But if he had adventurous tastes, you can give him samples of jerky, hot sauce, coffee or tea, too. Or, you can try and find an advent calendar themed to his favorite movies, from Star Wars to The Avengers to Back to the Future. You might even try getting a reusable one and filling it with your own little treats. (Might we recommend these trial-size beard oils?) No matter what he gets, these advent calendars are sure to keep him in the holiday spirit all month long.
