Halloween Advent Calendars Are Here To Make Your Witchy Dreams Come True

Halloween Advent Calendars Are Here To Make Your Witchy Dreams Come True

Christmas is great and all, but for those who prefer the witchy season, Halloween is truly where its at. So, it's about time they got their own advent calendars to count down the days to all the spooky festivities.

Now, some shops are beginning to catch on to the demand, and they're stocking decorated Halloween calendars to count down the days of October until Hallows Eve.

Starting at under £5 and racking up to as much as £1,500 (yep, you read that right!) there's a whole array of fancy new products available.

For just £4.90 on Amazon, you can get your hands on a 'Halloween Trick or Treat Countdown Calendar', with which features spooky illustrations of ghosts and witches.

Aimed at younger kids, you can pull open windows and it tells you a spooky fact. Fun!

Meanwhile, for just a few pounds more at £12 on Amazon, you can grab a ghoulish felt calendar.

This allows you to grab a ghost from the sky and stick it on each day of the month as it passes.

Halloween Countdown Blocks

Little wooden countdown blocks are also a great idea to build excitement, and can be made from scratch out of a few wooden cubes, or bought online pre-decorated.

We love this adorable orange countdown kit from Etsy, which costs £38.24, and could easily be whacked out onto the mantlepiece every year, but you can also get similar versions on the same site for just over £12.

Halloween Calendars For When You're Splashing The Cash

Of course, for those who seriously love the spooky season, there are some pricier options to help count it in with the respect it deserves.

Etsy also boasts a gorgeous, ornate 'Nightmare Before Christmas' advent calendar (£57.80), with numbered boxes decorated with pictures from the scary cartoon which you can fill with trinkets or sweets.

A wooden house with individually carved windows featuring sculls and pumpkins can cost as much as £95 on Etsy.

But look at it! It's so cute we're also tempted to splash out....

The prize for the most expensive option goes to one Etsy seller, who charged £1,199 ($1,465) for a stunning model of a Victorian mansion last year, which looks just like a dolls house.

The pricey calendar has towering windows which each house an original piece or ghostly artwork, and can also be plugged in, so that each window lights up when you open it. So cute!

But understandably, if you don't have the budget for that, you can even experiment with making your own at home for a fraction of the price.

There's literally loads of blank advent calendars online to decorate for whatever countdown you like.

May the Halloween countdown commence!
