Christmas Gifts: Beerwulf Advent Calendar

Wednesday, October 23, 2019
The countdown to Christmas has begun and I'm all for it! This is my favourite time of the year as there's the anticipation of christmas, the preparation, autumn leaves and the imminent arrival of the best holiday of not christmas, halloween. I love the lead up to christmas arguably more than Christmas Day itself so the process of writing and photographing my christmas gift guides each year is something I always look forward to and this year is no different.

I already have so many amazing gifts to share with you in the form of gift guides, review posts and an exciting gift card giveaway that will be live in a few days time (so definitely stay tuned for that). If you want to see the products I will be including in my gift guides early, follow me on Instagram (@ofbeautyand) for unboxings. Today marks the start of my gift guide posts with an exciting and rather unusual gift idea, a beer advent calendar!
*Beerwulf Beer Advent Calendar (£49.95)
No, you didn't read the price incorrectly! When I was first emailed about this advent calendar I thought the price would be at least around the £60 mark or more but I was very surprised by the very low price point as it makes each beer only £2.08. The advent calendar contains 24 bottles and cans of beer which range in size, brand, variety, flavours and strength as well as the country of origin so if you know someone who loves beer then this would be a great option as there's such a wide range included in the calendar.
All of the beer options within the advent calendar are also craft beers so they are a little more unique compared to general and more widely available beer brands so it would be a great way to try new flavours and brands that you (or your lucky gift recipient) may not have tried or even seen before. They are from 24 different breweries and there is an exclusive Jopen beer bottle that is only available from Beerwulf within the advent calendar too which makes it even more of special and unique gift.
One of my favourite things about this beer advent calendar, along with the price, is the design! There are so many advent calendar out there now from beautiful beauty options to jewellery, stationery, chocolate (naturally), candy, skincare, snacks and more, including a variety of alcohol related options to choose from so aesthetics and the uniqueness of an advent calendar is what can set it apart and make it a more special gift.

The design for the 2019 advent calendar is perfect, in my opinion, as it is festive but not cheesy or tacky. It is simple and readable but it isn't too minimal - it still looks like a special christmasy gift. I love the side in which you can add the name of the beer along with a rating too which is a nice touch and something I wouldn't have thought of. I also like the individual boxes for the beer bottles and cans as it means there's a nice surprise every day on the lead up to christmas. Also each box is packed randomly so the order of the beers in each box will be different but the contents is still the same.
There's only one minor problem with the box and that is the lack of an outer box so it leaves open the potential for a damaged box (either by the courier or the elements) which isn't what you want if you're giving it as a gift but thankfully mine arrived undamaged and intact so hopefully everyone's will too! It is quite a study, durable box so I imagine it isn't going to be an issue for most recipients.

Along with the fantastically festive design, the beers inside are pretty unique and beautifully designed too, for the most part. I've had a look through all of the beers included and while I don't want to spoil all of the contents for everyone, I will say that some of the flavour combinations are quite unique and there are many brands I haven't come across before so hopefully the lucky Beerwulf advent calendar gift recipients will have a delicious surprise everyday and find some new favourite flavours or brands which you can then hopefully purchase on the Beerwulf website.

Overall, I think the Beerwulf advent calendar is such a wonderful gift to give any beer lover this christmas as it not only looks amazing and makes for a very substantial gift but it is a gift that keeps on giving. The variety of the brands included and the flavour combinations makes it a gift for both beer lovers and those who are new to the world of craft beers or want to try brands that they might not have tried before. I think it is an amazing value gift, the delivery time was very quick and I think my dad will absolutely adore this gift!

Don't forget to check out the Beerwulf website for even more information about the advent calendar, along with their fantastic selection of gifts for a range of budgets including their beer cases, individual bottles and cans, beer kegs, gift cards and their beer subscription box.
