    Hi, this will be my 1st body shop advent calendar. They have three options, which one did you choose if you don’t mind me asking.
    Hi
    I have been going around and around with this idea...............................................
    The issue I am having is that I am buying this for my Granddaughter and she lives very far away.
    The whole process of order this in time (not too early/not too late),,deliver to my address then ship to her address,,plus huge shipping cost is just crazy.
    Here is what I've decided to do instead,,,
    She loves baking and decorating,,she is 15 yrs old.
    I will be sending her one box with a Gingerbread House Kit and I will include extra candy--who doesn't love extra candy.?

    I got the idea from this Website
    I am thinking of including 12 days of Christmas mini mason jars with candy/decorations.
    example,,coconut,mini M&Ms sprinkles,chocolate chips,caramels,mini marshmallows ,mini oreos,mini chips ahoy,gum drops,skittles,smarties,,,etc.


    Sorry that doesn't help you decide which Body Shop Advent calendar to order,,maybe someone else who is buying it will post their opinion.
    Best wishes what ever you decide.
    Regards Mel

    My local store had the $69 ones in stock. They had about a dozen. Just that model. They had it opened so you could see all that was included. It was quite substantial. I’m still debating as my youngest would prefer just bath bombs so i’m holding out on lush. I’d say go in store and take a peak if you live close enough to a store. I think the bigger packages may be online only.

    Unfortunately I do not have a store close by. Now you have me interested in the lush bath bombs! Thanks for the idea.

    I’m not sure what lush Canada will have. The UK store had an advent calendar — for 200 pounds. :scared1: Last year, the Cdn store had 12 days of Christmas for $99. Still pricey.


    I might just take Mel’s example and make my own version for her with mini bath bombs from multiple stores.

    My mum made all her grandkids reusable ones that my sister, cousins and I had as kids where we just tie whatever treats we want on them. I did ginger kids, my sister bought a lego set and divided up the pieces and my nephew built a lego set day by day.

    I was visiting my 24 yr old niece today and she showed me the David's Tea Advent Calendar she got last Christmas ,,,she loved it and said it came very nicely packed. She ordered it on Black Friday and got it for 1/2 price.

    Was at the Newmarket Disney store for the Frozen Key, there were a number of Advent calenders there. They were filled with small stuffies. Now my girls dont need anymore of them, and I think it was around $40.

    Magic Christmas dust (coconut)
    Rudolph Candy (skittles)
    Moose droppings (chocolate chips)
    Elf Candy (Caramel M&M's)
    Santa Snacks (Jelly Beans)
    Snowman Kisses (Hershey Kisses).

    Added small packages of Oreos cookies and Mini Chips Ahoy
    3 regular Kit Kat bars tied with twine (Logs for the fireplace)
    One large tub of White icing (Penguin fluff).

    One wilton mini decorating kit.

    Everything seems to fit,,tomorrow I will just add some tissue paper ,ribbons, bows and a note.

    Happy Holidays
    Hugs
