Countdown to Christmas: Advent Calendars

Can you believe that Christmas is less than two months away?  This year I decided that I will make everyone's Christmas presents instead of buying them, and I am making myself start this week.  If I don't, the presents will never get done!  I know, I'm such a terrible procrastinator.
So this season I have fallen in love with advent calendars.  They are such a cute way to spread the holiday love over the whole month, and they help build up excitement for Christmas day.  My boyfriend, my brother, and my two sisters are getting their presents in advent form.  I already have ideas for each of them in my little crowded head, and I will share them with you all each day that they open one.  But for now I thought I'd leave you with some of my favorite advent calendar inspiration.  Be prepared for loveliness!

These pennants are too cute!  My middle sister's present might look slightly like this.

These cute little envelopes each hold an activity for the day.

This calendar is simple and sweet, and oh so cheap to make!

These little felt trees are adorable, I hope to hide my youngest sisters presents under similar ones.

Unwrap one Christmas book a day and read it together, how cute is that?

And my personal favorite; my boyfriend's advent calendar will be a variation of this one.
