One of the things we love about Christmas is that you can start to call everything 'a festive (insert thing here)'. 

For example, a chocolate bar at 10am becomes a 'festive choccie' and thus is an acceptable start to your day, while a wild night of karaoke dressed in your most garish jumper on a Tuesday evening becomes a 'festive get together' and so no one bats an eyelid. 

If you're fond of a 'festive tipple' in the countdown to Christmas, too, and your drink of choice is a gin and tonic, then we may have found an advent calendar for you. 

This 12 Gins of Xmas Advent Calendar gives us 12 iconic gins to try throughout the month of December, keeping things interesting all the way through the festive season.

Plus, it means that you get a to try a whole range of new and interesting spirits, and so by next Christmas, you'll likely have a new favourite that you'll know to buy in bulk and serve to all your nearest and dearest. 

Plus, the calendar includes some sturdily familiar contenders like Bombay Sapphire, as well as some you might not have tried, like the Cheeky Gin Blood Orange Gin Liqueur or Mrs Cuthbert's Passion Fruit Pavlova Gin Liqueur.
