The sought-after festive advent calendar from Tinc, the British creators of colourful and inventive stationery, gadgets and accessories, is made up of 24 individual boxes, each a different size and containing new and exclusive limited edition gifts that can’t be bought in store.

This year, the goodies promise to be bigger, better and funkier than ever before with a combined estimated value of nearly £50. Each has been expertly designed by Tinc to appeal to children, who will love collecting and keeping the quirky items. In the past these have included everything from festive keychains and colourful stationery to luggage tags, cool character erasers and fingertip crayons.

In keeping with Tinc tradition, exact details about the contents of this year’s calendar have remained a secret so that the items inside each box are a complete surprise in the days leading up to Christmas Day.

The advent calendar comes in a colourful sleeve that slides back to reveal the boxes. When turned around day by day, the pictures on the boxes form a festive scene that is completed on Christmas Eve. Each box also has a side-splitting joke on another side, sure to give children the giggles.


The Tinc Advent Calendar is now available from all Tinc stores, online and John Lewis. The advent calendar retails at £28.
