Welcome to R&S Gift Guides, a series where we cover the internet's most in-demand gifts for every recipient, occasion, and budget. From anniversaries to birthdays to the holiday season, look no further than our data-backed collections for fresh ideas and inspiration.

This year, popular brands and retailers (like Sephora and Williams Sonoma), are making counting down the days until Christmas feel even more magical and festive with advent calendars. What do these advent calendars mean exactly? Typically, starting on or around December 1, these types of calendars are designed to dispense beauty products, fragrances, candles, or similar popular products every day leading up to Christmas. Moreover, when it comes to advent calendars, you can either choose to give it to a loved one or keep it entirely for yourself. And if you're planning on keeping one for yourself, advent calendars are one of the easiest ways to sample products so you can feel good about trying out several products at the same time without having to commit to purchasing full-size products. 

However, with so many options to choose from, it can be hard to know which advent calendars are actually worth the buy. We're here to help you, though. Ahead, we’re bringing you the best options out there with must-have beauty products, puzzles, cookies, and more. So, whether you’re shopping for a beauty enthusiast, puzzle lover, baker, or just looking to treat yourself, we’ve got you covered.
