Countdown to Christmas Day with the 25 body-loving treats hiding inside Share the Love Big Advent Calendar from The Body Shop.

Not only does their new beauty advent calendar have an amazing pop-up construction that transports you to a joyful Christmas world. It’s packed with some seriously good head-to-toe treats for keeping you and that beautiful body pampered all season.

We don’t want to spoil the surprise, but we’ll give you some hints on what you might discover inside…such as our new, full-sized Avocado Body Butter for nourishing dry skin with 96hr moisture. Maybe you’ll find our mini, skin-tingling Himalayan Charcoal and refreshing British Rose face masks. There might even be a Hand Cream or two for keeping palms and pinkies feeling hydrated all season.

The pop-up beauty calendar’s unique drawer construction is also perfect for storing your crafts and other little bits and bobs, which means it can be reused long after Christmas too!

Move beyond the standard calendar chocolates and treat yourself to 24 decadent pralines, truffles, and liqueurs. The only challenge with the Hotel Chocolat Everything Advent Calendar is trying not to eat them all at once!

We all know Christmas Day is a time of indulgence, but why not make the lead-up notable too? Whether you like dark, milk, or white chocolate, there’s an iconic treat to cover every genre. And with a newly-updated menu, you’ll find some of your all-time go-to’s and maybe even discover a new favourite.

Perhaps you’ll find a crunchy Florentine Isabelle, Peanut Butter, or creamy Hazelnut Praline — perfect for those who like their chocolate to have a subtly sweet, nutty edge.

And if fruity flavours are your thing, there may be a Mango Smoothie waiting for you. Bring a bit of sunshine to a cold winter’s day with the fragrant notes of tropical mango, enrobed in a creamy layer of high-cocoa-butter white chocolate.

There are dessert-inspired nibbles, too. Treat yourself with the sinful indulgence of our Caramel Cheesecake, or maybe you’ll find a refreshing option in our Lemon Cheesecake. What’s more delicious than a slab of carrot cake? Well, we’d argue our chocolate rendition is close competition! Lightly spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg, our Carrot Cake bite is ideal for the festive season.

Of course, no Christmas would be complete without a tipple. The award-winning Salted Espresso Martini truffle has just the right amount of booze to tantalise your taste buds and warm the cockles of your heart.
