The holiday season is just around the corner and that means advent calendars!
Advent calendars have grown much more popular over the last few years and that’s definitely not a bad thing. They’re not just made of chocolate anymore, and nor do they simply have a picture of baby Jesus behind each window. Advent calendars are cool, and can be filled with all sorts of trinkets.
A gin drinker? You can get an advent calendar of gin. Like cosmetics? Yeah, there’s advent calendars of that, too. But we’re interest in gaming advent calendars. Thankfully, there’s a host of those to be found this year.
We love gamer representation in our advent calendars so we’ve put together a list of five of the best gaming-related advent calendars you can buy for yourself or a loved one this holiday season.
Dragon Ball Z Funko Advent Calendar
You’ll be someone’s favourite person if you get them this Dragon Ball Z advent calendar this year. The calendar features 24 different mini Funko Pop figures from the Dragon Ball Z universe. You’ll be able to kame hame ha these Funkos all over your living room on Christmas Day – and if that doesn’t convince you, I don’t know what will.
Pokémon Figures and Christmas Accessories Calendar
Gotta catch ‘em all, but only one per day doesn’t have quite the same ring to it. But you can’t just catch them all on December 1st with this advent calendar. You’ve got to release one Pokémon a day until Christmas.
This Pokémon advent calendar “for kids” as it’s called on Amazon (which we take personal offence to) features small figures of Jigglypuff, Ditto, Meowth and more. You’ll be thrilled by the end of the month when you can create your own little holiday Pokémon family.
Fortnite Funko Advent Calendar
Another Funko calendar, this Fortnite Funko advent features 24 characters from the popular title from Epic Games. Frankly, just the box for this advent calendar is epic. And when you’ve pulled out your 24th Fortnite Funko you can stage them all together to see who comes out on top of your personal make-believe leaderboard.
Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar
This LEGO Star Wars Calendar will give kids (or adults) a gift every single day leading up to Christmas. Behind each of this calendar’s doors are LEGO minifigures, buildable starships and various holiday-themed mini builds. Players will recognise characters like Rey, a Porg, a Sith Trooper and more. If you’ve ever wanted to see Darth Vader in a Christmas sweater, look no further. It’s the perfect gift for a gamer, a LEGO fan or a Star Wars fan.
Super Mario Christmas Countdown Advent Calendar
It’s-a me, holiday Mario! This advent calendar is universal. Everyone loves Mario. Unless you don’t, in which case what is wrong with you? This calendar has 17 figures and seven accessories to play with. The calendar’s product description doesn’t give much away in regards to what you’ll get in the box, but you can likely expect to get figures of characters like Mario, Luigi, Toad, Peach, Bowser and more. Besides, it’s supposed to be a mystery what’s behind each window. This is a great calendar for a gamer who loves a classic.
