A whiskey Advent calendar is one of the best gifts you can give someone leading up to the holidays, but at over $150 a pop, it’s probably over your Secret Santa limit. Luckily, you can still spread Christmas cheer with a dram a day by making your own DIY whiskey advent calendar for almost half the price. Using mini bottles of booze, toilet paper tubes and Christmas wrapping paper, this festive, Christmas tree-shaped countdown will spread Yuletide joy with every passing day.
This craft requires a toilet paper tube for each day leading up to Christmas, so start stocking up on rolls well in advance, or source extras from your friends or office (upcycling for the win!). While whiskey is our favorite cozy spirit for cold December nights, feel free to fill the calendar with your choice of booze.
