Have we reached peak Advent calendar?! After all, we're still not over that amazing $112,000 one filled with diamonds, even if it's nowhere near our (personal) price range.


On the more, shall we say, accessible front, 2019 has brought us an adorable Advent calendar packed with pins, ideas for cats or dogs, and even ones for the Harry Potter-obsessed. Naturally, there are also options with all types of liquor like hard seltzer, beer, and wine because . . . the holidays.

Well, no one is gonna leave the beauty-lovers out of the Advent calendar game, and certainly not Sephora! Whether you're into skin care, nail polishes, or a little of everything, one of these is perfect for you, or someone on your gift list who is. Plus, they're already set up and ready to have the windows opened come Dec. 1 — way easier than trying to DIY one with 24 stocking-stuffer-size goodies on your own.

Check out the kits to stock up on before December begins ahead.
