Why not treat yourself this holiday season? There's no better way to do it than with an Advent calendar filled with beauty gifts from your favorite makeup and skin-care brands. If you're wondering exactly what a beauty advent calendar is, they're a play on the traditional countdown to Christmas Advent calendars that provide a chocolate treat behind each little date-marked door. Instead, a beauty advent calendar has a beauty surprise for each day. These Advent calendars will gift you a new product each day leading up to Christmas, kick-starting the season of giving and gifting—and leaving you feeling pampered. (When Mama's happy, everybody's happy.) Opening a door in your Advent calendar each morning is a fun way to start the day, and it's sure to get you in the Christmas spirit.

From Charlotte Tilbury to Kiehl's to Chapstick and more, we've rounded up some of our favorite brands spanning every style and budget. These range from the super luxe to the best of the drugstore. Start planning your Advent calendar tradition now so that you can enjoy it all month long. Who said we should only get gifts on Christmas Day? How about 12 or even 24 days of gifts in a row? Don't mind if we do. Scroll down to see our picks for the best beauty advent calendars for 2021, and let the festivities begin.
