Gifts from the Girls: Bridal Advent Calendar

By  |  0 Comments

No no, we haven’t gone mad and yes it still is August but today we’re having a look at a brilliant gift idea for your bestie on the run up to her Big Day! If you’re a Maid of Honour or bridesmaid we’ve got the perfect pre-wedding gift, a bridal advent calendar!

Even at (slightly!) over the age of 30, we still love to have our very own chocolate advent calendar during the run up to Christmas – oh, the joy of opening those little windows every morning is so exciting, and your bride will feel just the same with a bespoke bridal advent calendar.

So, what really is a bridal advent calendar we hear you ask? Well, put simply it’s an advent calendar with a wedding twist to spoil the bride, packed with useful gifts for the 12 days (or as many days as you fancy) leading up to the wedding. If you’re the creative type this gift will be right up your street and your imagination is the only limit in terms of design. As you’ll see below many ideas we’ve found below feature a cork board with individually wrapped little gifts attached and numbered but you could go to town and design your own completely bespoke idea.
