After 21 years of chocolate, booze is a welcome change. These alcohol-filled advent calendars are strictly for adults only—whether you've been naughty or nice, prefer gin or beer, or plan to sip on a new kind of wine each night in the days leading up to Christmas.
Try out 24 mini bottles of wine behind every door. Bonus, you can score free shipping to 31 states in the United States.
So much booze, so little time. The U.K.-based brand DOES ship to the U.S. (woo!), with pre-orders already being sent out.

What's fun about this gorgeously curated cal is that, sure, yes, you get 12 full bottles of wine, but also those 12 bottles are put together by "Wine Dealers," AKA a group of wine experts whose jobs at Vinomofo are essentially pairing people with wines. That said, this is an Australian product, so best of luck getting your hands on it.

And behind the other doors are different goodies from the brand (like shot glasses!). You can buy it now at select retailers for $79.99.
The wine subscription service has brought back its 12 Nights of Wine box once again because it's 2021 and chocolate just won't cut it. It includes four vibrant whites, two alluring rosés, and six opulent reds, all handpicked by VINEBOX certified Sommeliers.
Virgin Wines—yep, the same Virgin as the planes, trains, and soon-to-be cruise ship—is selling wine, beer, and gin advent calendars this year. This one comes with 24 airplane-size bottles of gin, with varieties like Old Tom, London Dry, and flavored gin. Pre-order one now and it'll ship in time for the holidays!
GiveThemBeer's take on the advent calendar isn't for people playing around: There are 12 full-size cans of craft beer in here, each hiding behind a secret, festive little door.
If you're looking for another option, in the past's you've been able to also get this beer advent cal from Aldi this season for $49.99. It is now available in stores that sell beer.
Who says hard seltzer can't be a winter drink? Aldi released a calendar stuffed with cans of different flavors of this type of bubbly for $34.99 last year so let's hope it will be back again soon.
Your favorite hard seltz can be enjoyed on the days leading up to Christmas with this clever packaging.
Canned cocktails have become a main genre of boozy drinks lately, so if you prefer Nooners over wine or beer, this is a great option.
