Who says kids get to have all the fun? This year, in the ultimate act of self-care, we're gifting ourselves a very grown-up advent calendar.

Elevate your holidays with Drink by the Dram's adult take on the build-up to the big day. Instead of chocolates, their calendars features a unique 30ml bottle of booze to reveal each day. The bottles feature hand-illustrated labels and are designed with a bit of holiday whimsy as well as a wax-sealed top for a luxe touch. Plus, it’s the first time these calendars are being sold in Canada.

Because we're all individual snowflakes, the makers of the spirit-filled calendars and tasting sets have created a couple of types to choose from. While we certainly wouldn't scoff at waking up to a new dram (Whisky Advent Calendar, $199.95) every day in December, we're smitten with the gin calendar. Expect an array of flavoured and unique spirits as well as seasonal specialties. The Gin Advent Calendar features a Yuletide Gin with gold flakes, spit-roasted pineapple gin and a cold brew coffee gin. It’s the perfect pre-holiday gift for the boozy besties in your life.

Or treat yourself to one to help keep your gin up over a busy festive season. After all, we have been very good all year.
