While the planners in our midst may have bought their advent calendars back in August, there are many of us who are downright shocked to realize that it's almost December. After seeing advent calendars in our friends' homes, we might be thinking that building up excitement for the holidays by opening new gifts throughout December sounds like an excellent idea.

We searched our favorite stores and found many great advent calendars for the season. For the kids, there are miniature Disney-themed ones, tiny Lego builds and mini figures, and sensory-stimulating fidget toys. For adults, there's wine, beauty products, and tea. And there are also calendars that appeal to the whole family (read: chocolate!).

Below are some fun advent calendars you can order right now.
