L’Occitane 2016 Advent Calendar

I loved advent calendars as a kid.

I didn’t get one every year, but when I did, I delighted in opening a tiny paper door every day to reveal a surprise.

The usual calendar that we got had a holiday-ish picture behind the door, like a candle, a tree, a manger. You get the idea.

One year, though, I hit the jackpot; my grandparents gave me an advent calendar that held a piece of chocolate behind each door. The final door – December 25th – held a big chocolate Santa. I loved that calendar.

I’d almost forgotten about this quaint tradition, but lately I’ve seen some cool advent calendars being advertised, like this L’Occitane one:


At $55, this boasts 24 beauty gifts for a value of $107. 

Per L’Occitane, this gift includes:

– Aromachologie Relaxing Shower Gel  1.18 fl. oz.

– Aromachologie Repairing Shampoo 1.18. fl. oz.

– Shea Butter Body Lotion 1 oz.

– Shea Ultra Rich Face Cream 0.33 oz.

– Almond Delicious Hand Cream 0.33 oz.

– Peony Hand Cream 0.33 oz.

Wow! I secretly want this for myself but it would make a terrific gift. You could easily break it up into stocking stuffers or small gifts for several people. It’s also a great way to try new L’Occitane products without a full-size commitment.

L’Occitane also frequently runs gifts with purchase specials and will throw in a free gift wrap set (always ask for this! It’s very nice) upon request, plus samples with every order.
