1 – The Cartografie Advent Calendar
OK, these chocolates are delicious and sustainable! Cartografie fill the box with pralines, ganaches and chocolate disks in perfect flavour combinations. Plus, Cartografie deals directly with farmers – that means they know exactly where each cocoa bean comes from and how workers are treated. Each box is fully recyclable, re-usable, biodegradable and hand-made of actual wood.
£155 from cartografiechocolate.com/shop.
2 – Greener Beauty Advent Calendar
The Greener Beauty Advent Calendar is for those who love beauty and sustainability. Every little gift is plastic free with a low carbon footprint. Plus, Greener Beauty plants 10 trees for each calendar sold. Inside, you can find delightful hair care, skin care and shower products from a range of vegan and eco-friendly brands.

3. Advent Calendar Christmas Candle by Kindred Fires
For something a little different, try the Advent Calendar Christmas Candle from Kindred Fires. Made from natural soy wax and hand-poured, this candle will last for one hour each night for 25 nights.
