Cute ideas! I really like the "Advent in a Jar" idea for something a little different. I'm working on this year's advent calendar right now - must stop procrastinating by reading blogs! I like to put vouchers for Christmas activities in our advent calendar rather than sweets or toys. This year we'll have vouchers for ice skating, Christmas crafts, visiting Santa, choosing a Christmas tree, making a gingerbread house...
I'll share this year's advent calendar once I finish it, but in the meantime here's a look at a simple DIY calendar I made a few years back with envelopes, buttons and gift tags...
