Here Are Some Advent Calendar Ideas That Go Far Beyond Chocolate

By

Back in my day, the standard advent calendar doled out a small piece of milk chocolate everyday from Dec. 1 all the way through Christmas on Dec. 25. 

But these days, advent calendars go far beyond that bite-sized piece of chocolate. Now, they give out anything from tiny bottles of alcohol, to expensive jewelry, and even pieces of cheese. So, if you're down to shake things up this year, these fun advent calendars are bound to do the trick.

Fun advent calendars you'll want to have this holiday season:
