    I have bought my husband an advent from UNICEF where everyday is a real ‘prize’ for someone much less fortunate. I think he will really like the idea.

      What a lovely idea – although it makes me smile that your surname is Bailey. It’s like me getting a Coke advent calendar for Rob!!

    Hi Di
    I tried to use your referral link to buy the LOOKFANTASTIC advent calendar for Karen, but the £5 discount wasn’t applied at checkout.
    Has anyone else reported this as a problem, or is it just me?
    Cheers, George
