Edmonton-Made Advent Calendars To Gift For The Holidays

Who doesn’t love counting down to Christmas?! (unless you’re a SCROOGE lol). 

I love a good advent calendar—whether I’m following along each day myself or gifting a calendar for a loved one, the surprise, the treat, and the countdown to Christmas makes for a lovely holiday experience. 

What’s better than just any old advent calendar? 

A locally-made one! 

I’ve put together a list of Edmonton, Alberta-made Advent Calendars you can gift for yourself or your loved ones this holiday season. 

This list was made for the 2021 holiday season, but chances are if a local business did it this year, and you’re checking this post or a later year, they’ll likely have an advent offering that year too.

I’ll update the list as I find more local advent calendars before December.

Feel free to let me know if there’s one I’m missing!

Be sure to check the individual business websites for order deadlines / shipping and pick-up details!

Advent calendars tend to sell out quickly and there’s the added time crunch as you need to get it in hand before Dec. 1, so check those dates and don’t delay on ordering if you don’t want to be disappointed!
