What’s inside the Fortnum and Mason Advent Calendar 2023 contents?
@victoria_woolly_web I hadn’t heard of a lot of these brands but that’s probably because Fortnum and Mason is a bit posh for me so I never think to shop there. Having since researched these products, there’s some pretty impressive premium beauty in this calendar. Plus the fact you save almost £800 is impressive in itself! Not my favourite calendar but if you’re a fan of the shop, or like trying new brands then the Fortnum and Mason Advent Calendar 2023 will be worth it! #advent #adventcalendar #adventunboxing #fortnumandmason #fortnumandmasondventcalendar2023 #premiumadvent #luxuryadvent #adventcalendarreviews #adventreviews #bestadventcalendar2023 #advent2023 #christmascalendar #christmas #countdowntochristmas ♬ Last Christmas (Pudding Mix) – Wham!
The full list of what’s in the Fortnum and Mason calendar is below.
Of this list, 22 of these products are full-sized, seven are travel-sized and one is a deluxe sample.
We’ve bought the Fortnum and Mason Advent Calendar calendar in the past and while £260 is a lot of money to spend, we think it’s more than worth it for the amount of products you get.
It always includes a range of full-sized items and in 2023 it has surpassed itself by not only offering 30 products behind 25 doors, but in making sure 22 of these products are full-sized.
If you were to buy all of the items in the 2023 Fortnum and Mason calendar individually, it would set you back £1,020 so you’ll be effectively saving £760.
Another reason why we think the Fortnum and Mason Advent Calendar is worth it is because it contains a lot of exclusive brands and products that you are unlikely to find in other advent calendars.
Many calendars feature the same products and brands repeatedly, year on year. This is fine if you only buy them once in a while, but it can be hard to know which calendars are really worth your money.
The Fortnum and Mason calendar is one of the few calendars to feature OTTO products, for example. The Charlotte Posner makeup bag in this year’s calendar also appears to contain makeup brushes making it a rare bargain.
In summary, is the Fortnum and Mason advent calendar 2023 worth it? Yes, absolutely!
