Tips: Advent calendar for men: Ten creative models to give as gifts

While it used to be customary to give away an Advent calendar filled with chocolate, today the content can't be unusual enough. Although the individual gift ideas are clearly reflected in the price, you also get a lot more for your money. Especially when there are expensive treasures behind the 24 doors that will last for a longer period of time. If you are still looking for a suitable Advent calendar for men, you may find what you are looking for among the ten models below.

Anyone who likes solving puzzles and is a big fan of crime novels will really enjoy this escape advent calendar by Eva Eich: Behind the 24 doors are 24 tasks (including assistance) that have to be solved by Christmas - in order to find the exit find.

There is a suitable counterpart for all those with a sweet tooth, filled with delicious sweets that some people probably remember from their childhood in the 80s or 90s: from sweet mussels and tutti frutti to tubes of chewing gum and crazy dips. The Advent calendar takes you on a nostalgic journey into the past - if you like, to the GDR: This variant includes former Eastern products. The calendar is available here.

This Advent calendar is a nice gimmick for men who like to do crafts: it includes, among other things, a screwdriver, various bits, an open-end wrench, a bottle opener, a double open-end wrench and three new products.

By far the most expensive Advent calendar in this series is this model with 24 spirits from different countries and distilleries. This gives rum lovers the opportunity to test different varieties (20 ml each) without having to buy a whole bottle. Whether alone or with friends: rum tasting at home is a real taste experience for everyone who appreciates a fine wine. The calendar is available here.

The next Star Wars film probably won't be released until December 2023 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. For all the impatient, this Advent calendar from Lego is a nice distraction: Behind each of the 24 doors is one of nine characters (Emperor Palpatine, an Ewok and Pit droid in a Christmas costume, a Gonk droid dressed as a reindeer and a LEGO B-1 battle droid figure), ten vehicle toys and five mini-models from the Star Wars universe. Great fun for Lego fans! The calendar is available here.

For everyone who likes to snack, this calendar offers real nibbling fun: 24 different treats from well-known brands such as Chio, Ültje, Funny Frisch and Pom Bär will spice up the days until Christmas. Whether chips or peanuts, ringlets or goldfish - with this calendar you can crunch your way through Advent.

Even though the official grilling season doesn't start until summer, there's actually nothing wrong with turning on the grill during the rest of the season. Die-hard BBQ fans are no exception - that's why this Advent calendar is a welcome change with its 24 different chili and BBQ sauces that can spice up any dish (with or without the grill). The calendar is available here.

Of course, the classic version shouldn't be missing: an Advent calendar filled with the finest chocolate. However, it can be a little higher quality than the standard version from the supermarket - like the delicious creations from Lindt, for example, made from various chocolates with delicious fillings. The treats will sweeten your time until Christmas for 24 days in a row. Of course there is also a dark or whole milk version. The calendar is available here.

Anyone who likes to drink beer should be particularly happy about this Advent calendar: filled with 15 German beers (including Zwönitzer Rauchbier, Wicküler Pilsener, Gilden Kölsch, Kulmbacher Edelherb Pils, Henninger Pils, Gude Anstich) and nine beers from all over the world (e.g. Tsingtao, Hite Pale Lager, Tuborg Pilsener, Pilsner Urquell - there is something to suit every taste. The special kind of beer tasting is delivered in a gift box with an elegant wooden look and is a real eye-catcher. The Advent calendar is available here.

This Advent calendar offers a particularly nice idea: In contrast to the other models, it only contains one gift - spread over 24 doors: the purpose is to build a fully functional FM radio. The individual parts required for this are in the calendar and are put together step by step. You don't need any specific previous knowledge, so the gift is suitable for every man.
