Socks Advent Calendar from Hi there! From the very first year me and Alex got together, I make him an advent calendar for the countdown until Christmas (you can see the 2011 and 2010 calendars here). This year our advent calendar was pretty different. First of all, since we don’t live in the same city any longer, it was sent by post! Secondly, it’s part of an inside joke of ours about socks; I’ve been stealing his every time I stayed at his place, so I thought it’s time for payback. :P Lastly, since I love the tradition of filling a sock with presents for Christmas, I thought it’s a pity to have only one sock to fill! :)
Here’s how I made it.

You will need:

  • 12 pairs of socks! (I searched for some red ones to play it up but I couldn’t find any male ones :( )
  • plenty of candies/toys/little things to fill the socks with
  • about 3m of string (depends on the distance you want between the socks)
  • 24 clothespins
  • 24 little paper squares with numbers from 1 to 24


As you can guess, it doesn’t get any easier than that…

and hang them on the string with the clothespins!

Happy countdown! :)

      Ο ‘μικρός’ είναι 26 χρονών και είναι το αγόρι της (εγώ δηλαδή :D ), όχι γιος! Σε περίπτωση που δεν ήταν ξεκάθαρο δηλαδή :P

  2. hello! I love the idea! I love that you keep it as a tradition and I also think it’s very useful since your boyfriend will be able to use the socks as well :)
    really nice Kynthia!

      Hi Anna!
      Thanks for dropping by! :)
      I’m glad you like it! Well, the fact that he can actually use the socks was on purpose since I’ve been stealing his for years, hihihihi! ;)
