We all love the cardboard Advent calendars with the little doors, but maybe you'd like a more durable Advent calendar that your family can use year after year. Unfortunately, many of these are surprisingly expensive, up to $40-$50 or more!
However, I have found six religious Advent calendars of all different kinds that are all reusable and all $25 and under. I hope you find the perfect one for your household!
This The Story of Christmas Advent Wall Calendar is just on budget at $25.99, but it includes 25 mini books which tell the Christmas story, as well as a wall calendar. This one is marketed for ages 4-7, so would be perfect for a young family.
I really love these felt calendars with a figure to put out each day, and this Nativity Scene Advent Calendar is a bargain at $19.99. Now through Dec. 4, you can use coupon code 126561359 to get 25% off. Also, Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 19-20, Family Christian Stores will have all gifts and home decor on sale. If this is included, you could get it for just $13.39!
Another neat option is this 26 Piece Magnet Advent Calendar with Bag for $17.50. This could be a great toy as well as an Advent calendar.
If you want something reusable but have a low budget, Autom has this Born this Day Foam Advent Calendar for just $4.99. These come 4 to a package, so this would be another Autom order that you'd want to split with friends.
Here is another felt option, this Felt Advent Calendar w/Velcro Figures for $24.95. I'm not sure if this is a different calendar from the above option; there seem to be a number of variations on the basic model. But definitely these two are definitely some of the best priced felt nativity calendars I've seen.
If you're looking for something less for kids and a little more elegant, Dayspring has this Love Came Down Felt Advent Calendar for $19.99. I really like the understated look.
And don't forget, there's still time to get a good deal on an Advent wreath and Advent candles!
