Advent & Cultural Differences


In many countries people have used Advent Calendars for many years. Where I come from in Denmark, those are mostly used for kids or small kids. It is usually very expensive to buy so many gifts for each kid or adult through the month before the Christmas. At least if you wish to give them more than only a pencil etc.

For some years another kind of Advent Calender has become more common. Instead of buying a lot of small gifts, as often break down or so in short time, people started to give an Advent Calendar for the 4 last Sundays before the Christmas, both for older kids and adults. These have been very popular, because the gifts are larger than usual and much more usable.

I have been thinking a lot about creating some Advent Calendars with jewelry, but I think this will be much too expensive for many families to buy. This is why I have decided to create Advent Calendars with 4 gifts (Jewelry) for several kind of values. Here I will select 4 different kind of jewelry for the 4 Sunday in this packets and for different kind of economy.

My idea for those Calendars will beย 4 different kind of Jewelry for respectively:

25 Euro – about 26,80 USD – about 17,65 GBP

50 Euro – about 53,61 USD – about 35,29 GBP

75 Euro – about 80,41 USD – about 52,94 GBP

100 Euro – about 107,22 USD – about 70,59 GBP

+ postage, where I will calculate exactly price for each packet, so no one will pay more than it costs. I post your gifts, as soon as I can see your payment and I always send for you to sign, which give both of us security and usually you will recieve the gifts much more fast.

All payments go through Paypal, where you don’t need to be a member, just to use your credit card, which give security for both buyer and seller.

This gifts will be wrapped in gift paper with the numbers 1, 2 ,3 & 4 for the 4 Sundays and the last gift will be a little larger than the others.

What do you think about this idea? Please tell me, thank you ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you are interested in buying one of the packets, please tell me and we will write by email to keep the privacy for the gifts.

If you have any special wishes, I would love to hear about these and I promis to do my best.

  1. I think this is a nice idea! There are so many different kind of Advent Calenders already with the craziest stuff like beer, lingerie… so the gem stone idea is really nice! Also it is something that has a real value and meaning! I like how you do different price categories.

  2. I’ve never heard of this. Great idea!

  3. This is a fab idea Irene! I give a small piece of candy on certain days and most other days have an ornament for one of the children to adorn the tree with. I mostly have homemade ornaments. Maybe next year you would consider making some (a set of 5 for my five children) small ornaments? I am not fussy or particular really. Unique is what I like and that your designs certainly are ๐Ÿ™‚ Don’t know how practical this in your opinion. Just thought I would share my silly thought. I know it is not your norm and understand if you think I am out of my tree for suggesting!
    Also sorry for not posting a review yet. So short on time and currently battling Amazon who refuses to post my book review for unknown reasons (the ‘Dancing to an Irish Reel’). So frustrating.
    Hope you are well, Melissa

    • This could be a good idea Melissa ๐Ÿ™‚
      Would you like different kind of Christmas likely to the tree?
      About Amazon, if you are a friend to the author, they don’t allow you to leave a review.

      • I only know her because of her asking me to review her book. I couldn’t even tell you three facts about her. How would they know if we are friends or not anyhow?
        Am not sure exactly what you are asking about the ornaments. They would go on our tree, but I am wide open as to how they look. I would trust your interpretation of ‘ornaments’.

      • I bought 2 books through writers in here. My reviews were removed short time after from both. There were some talking some months ago about the same experiences from others in here.
        Thanks for your confidence Melissa ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Ugh! Well, we tried. It seems wrong to me just the same.

  4. What a great idea and very innovative of you. Best of luck Irene, your jewelry is beautiful.

  5. The daughter said:

    Great concept, Mama! โค And what a good idea to make them in different price ranges ๐Ÿ™‚
