Fill-yourself advent calendar

    Anyone know of a bricks and mortar retailer that’s selling the fill-yourself advent calendars (ideally cloth or wooden)?

    I saw one in Woodies but it was €40 and made of cardboard - I’d rather get one that has a chance of lasting a few years!

    Thanks

    I had one like this in red a few years back until we lost some drawers.

    Haven’t seen any in stores but will keep an eye out.

    It is probably too late for this year, but I'd say you could get them on Etsy

    Brown Thomas have wooden ones, about €40, but they'd last at least!

    Yes, Aldi have lovely ones, but I assume they're long gone by now!

    Looks perfect - if I can find one like that in a shop I'll be delighted!

    Thanks - hoping to pick one up somewhere as I'm already a day behind!

    By the looks of things they were out about a month ago and I wasn't organised enough to get one. Will keep an eye out as there may be one left somewhere. Cheers

    Thanks... I'm a bit more inclined to spend €40 if I know I'll get a few years out of it... I've a feeling the cardboard ones wouldn't last until this Christmas in my house, never mind multiple outings!

    Thanks - looks like a card/paper one but for €5 you can't complain!

    In the end I got a fabric one in Flying Tiger for €12. It's big enough - about 90x90cm - so might be hard to find a good spot for it but I'll figure that one out!
