As someone whose love language is gifts, I can attest that my appreciation for material possessions doesn’t so much come from the tangible items, themselves, but rather from the thought behind them, as well as the element of surprise upon reception. As much as I enjoy receiving presents, though, giving them can feel equally as rewarding. Right now, there are so many new holiday collections to shop in preparation for the winter holidays. Whether you’re looking for quality bedding, seasonal candles, or long-lasting cookware, it’s worth getting your shopping out of the way now, while new drops are still in stock. Of course, the ultimate present to get yourself or a loved one is an advent calendar. It’s literally the gift that keeps on giving because you get a fun surprise every day! A lot of retailers’ 2022 calendars are already available, but we’ve narrowed them down in a list to include those that are most worth the cash. The countdown starts now!

Jo Malone

Show your appreciation for the perfume-lover in your life with this 25-piece Jo Malone advent calendar. The set includes some of the brand's bestselling scents in miniature perfume, candle, and home fragrance forms. Although this is an expensive buy, purchasing all of these items in a set is a better deal than getting them separately. And your bougie giftee will be forever grateful, no doubt.

You can't leave your pets out of the gift-giving festivities! Your dogs might not be able to count, but they'll nonetheless appreciate the 12 plush and crinkly toys included in this calendar set. Whether your pooch prefers to play fetch with the tennis ball or gnaw on a squeaky Santa, the important thing is that they feel included.

Williams Sonoma

Williams Sonoma launched this Dolly Parton-themed calendar for the first time last year, and, to no one's surprise, it quickly generated tons of fanfare. If you missed it after its initial drop, you can purchase this 24-piece candy set the second time around and delight in the country music queen's favorite sweets. The calendar includes gummies, chocolates, and other enticing candies.

It's time to collectively acknowledge that socks are indeed a wonderful gift, especially when they're adorned with bright, eye-catching prints that fit the season. You'll find 24 pairs of those in this advent calendar by Happy Socks, which makes its footwear out of the softest organic cotton. The socks fit multiple foot sizes, so people of all ages and genders will get a kick out of them.

Saks Fifth Avenue

This beauty and home advent calendar from Saks contains products from big-name brands. And by big-name, I mean they cost big bucks. In this 25-piece set, you get skincare, makeup, and home fragrance products from luxurious labels such as Augustinus Bader and Diptyque. So although $220 seems like a hefty price tag at first, it's a worthwhile deal considering that buying everything separately would cost upwards of $500.

For those who enjoy a daily cup of Earl Grey, this herbal tea calendar will feel extra thoughtful and personalized. All 24 tea bags are by the brand Pukka, which uses organic ingredients. You have traditional favorites such as English breakfast, as well as blends for different occasions, such as bedtime and after dinner. And at $20, this is easily one of the more affordable calendars out there.
