Even though the 1st of December is still a few weeks away, retailers have been offering advent calendars since September. Gone are the days when these calendars consisted of bite-size pieces of milk chocolate shaped like Santa and jingle bells. There are now options for kids and adults alike, with all sorts of surprises for each day in December leading up to Christmas — even your pets can get in on the fun.
While many retailers are showcasing advent calendars this year, there are none that are offering the kind of variety that Costco is. From sweet treats to adult beverages to even movie mementos, there is literally an advent calendar for everyone. Plus, this is Costco after all, so all of these calendars are very reasonably priced.

Advent is 25 days, but we've also included calendars that are 12 days (as in the 12 days of Christmas) if you prefer a shorter and sweeter countdown, or if you like to celebrate more traditionally — which is the 12 days after Christmas. However you choose to observe, be sure to browse all the holiday goodies on your next Costco run.
