Christmas trend for 2018: Advent calendar with a personal touch

For children and grown-ups alike, Advent calendars are one of the most important highlights of the pre-holiday season. The more individualised it is to the recipient, the greater their daily delight.

A custom Advent calendar anyone can fill
The question often arises of how an Advent calendar can be as personalised as it is attractive, without a huge amount of effort. A simple and simultaneously creative option is the fill-it-yourself Advent calendar from CEWE. The outer design featuring an image, or several beloved photos is fun and builds anticipation for Christmas. Different design templates make it easy to create a stylish arrangement of images. The inner pockets offer space for a wide variety of small items: from toys for youngsters to cosmetics for adults to hand-written messages and vouchers—there are no limits here on the imagination. This versatile Advent calendar can be ordered via starting from 19.99 euros (RRP).

Enjoy a photo and satisfy your sweet tooth every day
The chocolate Advent calendars from CEWE are both classic and personalized at the same time. They are filled with either Ferrero Pralines or kinder® products. On the outside of the calendar, gift givers can let their creativity run free and create a design with personal photos, clip art, frames and design templates. Adorned with an adorable shot of the family pet, a photo of a shared experience or an image of a grandchild, this Advent calendar not only satisfies a sweet tooth, it also invites memories of wonderful moments.
