Winter Christmas

Kickstart your Christmas festivities on the 1st of December with a rather indulgent countdown. Bring on our luxury advent calendars

What signifies the start of the Christmas festivities for you and your family? It could be decorating the tree, getting the ball rolling with Christmas shopping, or writing your Christmas cards. For us at Hotel Chocolat, unsurprisingly, it’s all about the chocolate.

We adore the feeling of hanging up our luxury advent calendars ahead of December 1st and waiting until that very exciting morning… the morning when you can open up the number “1” window and enjoy your first treat of the holidays. One nibble every day until Christmas — what’s not to love?

If you’re looking for the most luxurious advent calendars to treat your family and friends to their own indulgent countdown, take a look at what our chocolatiers have created for Christmas this year.

Advent calendar doors

Classic luxury advent calendars

Our classic Advent Calendar provides a sublime daily nibble of exquisite Hotel Chocolat chocolate — in white, milk, dark, or caramel chocolate. If you’re buying for yourself, nab your favourite. Or if you’re shopping for a loved one, make sure you do your research and choose their go-to chocolate grade. Of course, if you think they would love a handpicked selection of various chocolate grades, flavours, and textures, you can opt for our calendar with a bit of “Everything”.

In our luxury advent calendars, you’ll receive a jolly festive character every single day leading up to Christmas, plus an uplifting message behind each door.

White chocolate

Silver box, oh-so-white, and full of Christmas delights.

Wildly creamy white chocolate hides behind the doors of our White Chocolate Advent Calendar. Our white chocolate is still cacao-rich, so you can enjoy a sumptuous, nuanced chocolate experience. Not too sweet, this is the perfect calendar for white chocolate devotees who prefer cacao butter to lots of sugar.

Milk chocolate

A robin red box packed with the most divine milk chocolate.

Our Milk Chocolate Advent Calendar stars our 40% milk chocolate signature milk blend. All the creaminess you want from your chocolate, plus a decadent hit of cacao. Keep your spirits high with these festive chocolate characters.

Dark chocolate

Dark as a cold, wintery night — rich with glorious cacao.

If you prefer a true dark chocolate, you’ll get to enjoy one every day with our Dark Chocolate Advent Calendar. Our dark chocolate contains a minimum of 70% cacao, so you’re sure to get a hearty dose with every morsel. This one is suitable for vegans*, too!

*Please note that we believe our dark and Nutmilk chocolate is suitable for vegans. However, as it is made in the same environment as our milk chocolate, we cannot guarantee it is free from milk

Caramel chocolate

Extra indulgent dulce de leche notes — fitting for the most wonderful time of the year.

Our signature caramel chocolate takes centre stage in our Caramel Chocolate Advent Calendar. Smooth, creamy, and delectable. Adorable Christmas characters with flavours of cacao and caramelised sugar swirled into one.

The Everything

A new day, a new surprise. Enjoy a taste of Everything across all our chocolate grades and genres.

Our The Everything Advent Calendar is perfect for adventurous chocolate lovers. From Champagne Truffles to Chocolate Orange Pots, you’ll get to sample fruity, nutty, and patisserie-inspired chocolates. Instead of coming in the form of Christmas characters, each chocolate comes as our chocolatiers first created them — in their iconic, bite-sized form.

The Grand Advent Calendar

Take things up one festive notch with our Grand Advent Calendar — for adults only. Just like with our classic advent calendars, every day will bring a small dose of festive joy. This glistening silver box brings Caramel Supernovas, Jolly Penguins, Chocolate Batons, and more to your advent openings. But it doesn’t end there.

Aside from a selection of our chocolate bites, you’ll also find cacao-infused tipples, hot chocolate, and lip balm hiding behind some of these tempting doors. This one is an ideal luxury advent calendar for cacao fans who would adore a selection of chocolate and chocolate-inspired treats this year.

The Advent Calendar For Two

Christmas is a time for sharing — yep, even your chocolate! But don’t worry, you don’t have to snap your chocolate in half with this advent calendar. We created The Advent Calendar For Two for partners, best friends, and siblings. With this calendar, you’ll receive a selection of two indulgent chocolate truffles every day throughout December.

Nibble together with your morning coffee and discuss all your sampled flavours. Say goodbye to fighting over who gets the chocolate from the advent calendar!

Up to Snow Good Children’s Advent Calendar

With our Up to Snow Good Children’s Advent Calendar, Christmas couldn’t get any cuter. Treat the little ones with a loveable chocolate character every day throughout December. They’ll adore playing with their jolly chocolate pals and creating stories about each one. Of course, they’re sure to enjoy nibbling them too.

Whether they’re allowed a bite of chocolate before school or these are to be saved as an after-dinner treat, they’ll look forward to seeing what awaits behind each window of this advent calendar, each and every day.

Our Vegan Advent Calendar

Just because you’re vegan or dairy-free doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a luxury advent calendar. Just take a peek at our Unbelievably Vegan* Up to Snow Good Advent Calendar. Equal parts indulgent and cute — this is a treat for kids and adults alike.

This vegan advent calendar features 24 adorable characters made from our original 45% Nutmilk recipe. To achieve the same creaminess as milk chocolate, we used finely milled hazelnuts. The result — a subtly nutty, silky smooth chocolate suitable for those with a plant-based diet.

Nurture your inner child with jolly penguins and friendly snowmen or impress your little ones with the cutest chocolates around!
