Count Down to Christmas With Cute Vegan Advent Calendars!

We just can’t wait for Christmas—we’re counting down the days ’til December 25! One of our favorite ways to make the days leading up to Christmas special is using an Advent calendar. If you’ve never seen one, it looks like a large book or calendar and has little windows for days of the month. Each day, you open a window and find a treat inside.

Often, the treats are made of chocolate, which sometimes contains milk. Since kind kids know there’s never a reason to eat anything made with cow’s milk, we found some great vegan Advent calendars that will allow you and your family to celebrate the holidays while being nice to animals.

Here’s a look at some of our favorites:

Amanda’s Own Confections

This calendar shows a scene from the big night: Santa coming down the chimney. The brand’s website has tons of other holiday-themed chocolate, too.

No Whey Chocolate

The windows of this Advent calendar feature some classic symbols of the season, and behind each one is a piece of nondairy milk chocolate. Yum!
