Whether the holiday season means endless relatives asking if you’re still single, or endless amounts of turkey and eggnog, this is one of those times of the year when you don’t need an excuse to drink. To celebrate, we’ve picked some booze-packed advent calendars to kick off the holidays.
The cult-favorite budget grocery store is offering an advent calendar this year that’s filled with 24 mini bottles of red, white, sparkling and rose wines, including Merlot and Chablis. Reportedly, the still wines will be French and the sparkling varieties will be from Italy and Spain. Sadly, Aldi’s wine calendar will only be available in the United Kingdom, but if you’re hopping across the pond, you’ll be able to scoop one up starting Nov. 1 for around $67.
Though this box doesn’t come filled with beer, it’s specially designed to hold 24 bottles – fill it up with your friend’s favorite brews (or limited edition beers!) and make their holiday season even more festive.
Perfect for the Ron Swanson doppleganger in your life, this calendar isn’t cheap, but comes with 24 mini bottles of top-notch Scotch whisky. If you’re not a fan of the stuff, Master of Malt also offers a variety of boozy advent calendars including bourbon, gin, rum, and tequila.
If you have any gin and tonic lovers in your life, this is the calendar for them. This festive calendar is packed with a variety of 25 small bottles of clean, fresh and spicy gins, made with aromatics like juniper, pine, lavender, spice and citrus.
For that person who will drink anything, this calendar is loaded up with an assortment of the brand’s American-made spirits like bourbon, vodka and gin to make every day of advent a surprise. The box features an adorable holiday design, so no gift-wrap is necessary.
