5 jewellery advent calendars to countdown to Christmas 2014

Is it just me or have the beauty advent calendars gone a bit over the top this year? What started as a cute way to try a new sample for 24 days in December, has turned into something you're going to have to pay at least £50 for.

I've been scouting around, trying in vain to find a beauty calendar for £20 or under - but have discovered something much much better: jewellery advent calendars.

New Look 
Advent calendars, £19.99 each, New Look
First up are these bracelet and necklace calendars from New Look. In the necklace version, each day you get a new charm to use as a pendant on a chain necklace - meaning you get essentially get 24 necklaces for just £19.99. The charm bracelet option on the other hand (ha) contains one single chain that you add a cute Christmassy charm to every day.

Meri Meri
Nutcracker jewellery box advent calendar, £19.54, Meri Meri
I love this little Nutcracker ballet jewellery box - it's probably more suitable for little girls but it just takes me back to Christmas when I was a kid. Like New Look, on the first day you get a pretty little chain and then for the next 24 days you get a festive charm to add to it. (£19.54, Amazon)

Primark is offering up two Christmas calendar treats this year: first there's a £10 advent calendar filled with a mixture of four midi rings, four charm bracelets, 12 stud earrings and four pendant necklaces.

And secondly there's the 12 days of jewellery calendar pictured above. For just £8 I honestly think you get a better with this deal than the full 24-day version. Behind the windows are four pairs of earrings, two rings, three bracelets and three necklaces in much more versatile and on-trend styles. (Take a look at more photos of both on Leighlee's blog).

Charm bracelet calendar, £16.75, Amazon
Another build your own charm bracelet calendar, this £16.75 one contains two bracelets and 22 charms in a pretty Pandora style you can wear for the rest of the year too.

Jewellery Christmas advent calendar, £25, Topshop
This calendar from Freedom at Topshop is a little more expensive at £25 but contains some of Freedom's typically fashion-forward pieces. A mixture of both silver, gold and cotton pieces, it contains eight necklaces, four bracelets and 12 pairs of earrings which will look gorgeous with all your Christmas party outfits!
