The Best Boozy Advent Calendars to Gift for Christmas


Products featured are independently and objectively selected by our editors. From time to time, things you buy through our links may earn us an affiliate commission.

The festive season is still a fair bit away, but given that advent calendars are already being released, often have special early bird prices, and are known to sell out, we thought it worth getting a head start rounding up our favourites.

If you’re not familiar with boozy advent calendars, they feature tiny, surprise bottles of alcohol, usually one for each day in December leading up to Christmas. While they’re a great way to build excitement and spread Christmas cheer in the month of December, they’re also a fun way to sample new craft beers, spirits and wines, and at a fraction of the cost, too.

Here are our picks for the best boozy calendars on sale for 2023.
