THE IN-TRAY

Get them before they’re gone: the best advent calendars and vaults of Holiday 2021

There’s a lot to love about the holiday season, from feasts and frivolities to reunions with loved ones and escaping to a time that feels as nostalgic as ever as the years roll on. For many, it’s a time of gift-giving – and there’s nothing quite like a beauty surprise for a loved one (or yourself) to spark some serious holiday joy.

No matter what your festive season looks like, the countdown has begun. We’ve rounded up our top advent calendars and vaults that are sure to spoil them. A holiday season treat, these picks are often the fastest to fly off our shelves (virtual and otherwise).

They’re here for a good time, not a long time – so we’d strongly recommend snapping one up before they’re gone for good!

Go-To 12 Days of Go-To

We can’t lie, we’re peachy keen for Go-To’s advent calendar. It’s like one big pamper package for skin, body and hair and it comes with both full-size and travel-size treasures. This one truly ticks all the boxes; it’s the perfect gift for those starting out with skincare (see also: any teenager in your life), a guaranteed crowd-pleaser for beauty lovers (it comes with a silk scrunchie, lush silk eye mask, tweezers and more) and even makes for an easy stocking filler hack (open each compartment and gift the goodies individually). If you don’t snap one up, we just might!

Glow Recipe Glow Café Vault Skin Set

Whether you’ve always wanted to try Glow Recipe or you’re al ready all aboard the (crowded) bandwagon, this vault has you covered with 14 (yes 14!) full-size (yes, full-size!) skincare essentials.

True to its name, it reads like a real-life café menu – except it’s full of skin-loving products to suit whatever yours needs. You can mix and match between the Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask (for when you need to look l ike you’ve had 10 hours-plus) the Plum Plump Hyaluronic Serum (for when you’re feeling a little tight and dehydrated) and the Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask (when you need to banish the evidence of late-night Holiday festivities!) to name a few. Our advice? Add to cart, stat!

Kiehl’s Heritage Icons Set

Music lover? Art lover? Skincare lover? If you answered d) all of the above, this Kiehl’s vault is for you. Housed in a rock’n’roll-themed, zero-plastic case (as certified by the Forest Stewardship Council) and designed by French artist and activist Marylou Faure, the 12-piece set is reminiscent of a greatest hits album – it’s full of tried-and-tested formulas that you’ll keep coming back to.

It also makes for the perfect gift for the significant other who always steals your skincare, body care or haircare, including a cleanser, moisturiser, body lotion, shampoo and conditioner, to name a few.

diptyque Holiday Advent Calendar

It wouldn’t be the holiday season without diptyque’s annual limited-edition advent calendar – their 25-piece cabinet of curiosities is bursting-at-the-drawers with petite-sized parfums, candles and body products spiked with the maison’s most iconic scents.

Whether you’re the disciplined type who wants 25 days of treasures to open each morning, or the impatient kind who can’t help but open multiple days in one go, this advent calendar is full of olfactory delights regardless of when, where, and how you choose to approach it.

Some would say this is the crème de la crème of advent calendars, so if you’re trying to ‘woo’ a special someone or simply want to live your best life smelling real good this holiday season, this one takes the cake.
