How is it different to last years?

With only one repeated product, John Lewis has kept some well loved brands as well as adding a few new ones. The design this year isn't as festive, it kind of looks like wrapping paper but I would of love to have seen some sparkle or Christmas print.

Is it worth the price?

Increasing by £16 to £165.00, this is again a calendar that is and isn't worth the price. There are a lot more full sized products and you are paying £165 for around £300 worth of products. When I tallied up, I got to 23 of the products when it went over the £300 claim so there is truth to it. I just think this will be an advent that wouldn't be for everyone because of that price point. I think John Lewis should do an alternative like a 12 day advent as well for next year. 

Do you think they should do a 12 day advent? Would you pay £165.00 for this?

I am doing another month of #CalendarCountdown, I'd love to know what you think of all the different advents and you can find me on FacebookTwitter & Instagram. Use the hashtag #CalendarCountdown if you have one of these advents or if you have your own way of counting down to Christmas.

As always, thanks for reading...
