FORGET decorating the tree with dinky decorations and tedious present wrapping – if you're serious about getting into the Christmas spirit from December 1st, you'll want one of 2021’s best gin advent calendars.
Thanks to an unwavering gin boom, there are countless options on the market, including craft gins, pink gins and extra special premium options to make sure you have a truly gin-credible Christmas.
If you're investing in a gin advent calendar to share with your partner (or for me, myself and I…? ) in the sleepless run-up to Christmas Day, be sure to choose one made up of 50m bottles so you can have a single measure G&T each, or alternatively, buy two — it's Christmas, after all.
But be sure to consume responsibly — none of us want a shocking hangover on Christmas Day, do we?
Alternatively, if you're buying a gin advent calendar as a present for someone else, including a pack of mini tonic cans; or fun-shaped ice cube trays, and a mixture of berries or garnishes, along with it would be a thoughtful touch.
Get into the Christmas spirit (quite literally) with our selection of gin advent calendars and celebrate the Christmas countdown in the best way. Cheers to that!
