Teenagers. Occasionally a tricky beast to please. Obviously they want an advent calendar just like everyone else in the house (we all know that teens are 50% 30yr olds, 50% 6yr olds, right?). So we’ve been looking for Advent Calendars for Teenagers – they’re too old for the more traditional ‘open the door to find the cute picture or chocolate’ option (although the 50% 6yr old part secretly yearns for such things…sshhh). And of course they’re too young for the more adult offerings out there. However, we think we have come up with a great list of top Advent Calendars for Teenagers that will get more that just a grunt of joy from your teen this Christmas. Help to make them feel appreciated and just as much a part of the seasons little traditions as everyone else this year. Although – perhaps a good idea to keep a few spare chocolates aside just in case, eh?
