One of the newer kits in the Kits Collection is the Rustic Christmas Countdown kit. This kit makes 25 little envelopes that you can string up as an advent calendar. I’ve made the four different styles of envelopes here so you can see what they look like.
The envelopes are flat, so they would fit something like a smaller flat fun-size candy bar, a gift card, or some cash.
You could also use it as “surprise” Holiday outings or activities in each of the envelopes. I think a mix of outings and activities would be really fun. You could have inexpensive activities like decorating the tree, baking cookies, cocoa and a movie, or outings like caroling or seeing Christmas lights. This would be a really great idea for those with young kids for something to look forward to every day.
For older or adult kids, you could fill them with a mix of candy, movie tickets, gift cards for coffee places, or an inexpensive dinner.
And for those that don’t “do” a countdown, you can leave the numbers off and instead put names on them and use them for gift giving. So many great ideas.
