Over the last few years the advent calendar has moved away from being a child only gift. Gone are the days when you only get little squares of chocolate on the lead up to Christmas. Now you can get everything from beauty products to beer.

An advent calendar is not just for the individual, it can be used as a cost effective way of improving morale and productivity in the lead up to Christmas. Let’s be honest, by the time December rolls around we are all have one eye on the Christmas holidays and keeping your employees motivated becomes a real challenge. Finding creative ways to motivate your staff can set you up nicely for the new year and new business.

But what has this got to do with advent calendars? Well, as a business owner you need to find cost effective and easy ways to keep your staff focused during the festive period an advent calendar can be a great way to do that.

For each day you can put your employees names into a hat for a daily draw. A prize for coming into work every day in December is simple but effective way to build motivation. You could even have multiple calendars one for beer, one for wine, and one for spirits, or for even some tea and coffee calendars, that way there are more prizes to go around. It just gives staff something to look forward to at the end of a busy day.

You could even use adult advent calendars as corporate gifts. Opening a door for a little treat can keep your business in the mind of important suppliers, just make sure it arrives before the 1st December!

For (a currently reduced price) of £59.95, 24 different beers from 24 different breweries is 24 days of discovery in the countdown to Christmas. To kick off festivities work your way through this advent calendar and discover a new beery love in your life with these 24 beers.

What we think

Beer Hawk have pulled together a excellent advent calendar to countdown to Christmas. The most incredible thing they have done is create a very intelligently designed box. The box is quite big but with bright, festive colours it would look good with your other Christmas decorations. When opening the first door you notice that not all the numbers are on the top of box, you pull out a 330ml can and examine the box further, you discover that the cans are sitting on the rest of the calendar which are the bottles lying on their sides. Not only do you discover a very smart box, but that Beer Hawk have thought of everything. Instead of opening the door to a joke or fact you find that the reverse of the door gives you a short write up of the beer inside (and you can use the door as little coasters). As a beer lover, this extra drop of information can help you find a new brewery or beer and is very well thought out. Not to mention the amazing beer inside.

Baileys Advent Calendar

Description

This advent calendar is not for children and falls perfectly in the definition of adult advent calendar.

Then after 21 days of tasty chocolate finish the last weekend before Christmas with three mini bottles of flavoured Baileys Irish cream available at Debenhams for £18.

What we think

Baileys and chocolate seems to be the perfect combination. Deliciously creamy Baileys as chocolate truffles is hard to get enough of, so it might be difficult to resist tearing open the  calendar to get to the 21 individually wrapped Baileys truffles. It then takes a turn away from chocolates with 3 mini bottles of flavoured Baileys which puts the calendar firmly in the realm of adult advent calendar.

What we think

Master chocolatiers make some of the best advent calendars, and Godiva are no exception to this. Clocking in at £20 Godiva have stuck to tradition with this advent calendar, with a very traditional festive deep blue design.

We have selected the beers in a sensible order, with lower abv pales in the week and strong dark beers at the weekend.
