If you are tired of cheap, throw-away advent calendars and want one that will last you year and after, then I suggest you check out the many different wooden Advent calendars.
These calendars made great gifts for loved ones or buy one for your home so your whole family can countdown the days until Christmas morning.
We have had a wood Advent calendar in our home for several years and my kids always look forward to getting it out and checking out each day as it comes about. It has lasted several years and will most likely last more since it is made from a high quality, sturdy material.
Be sure to check out all the different varieties of wooden Advent calendars below.
Wooden Advent Calendar House
This is a beautiful and classic style Advent calendar that is shaped just like an old Victorian house all decorated for Christmas.
It is a nice sized calendar that also is so nice for decorating a shelf or mantle as well. It measures 22 inches high and is 15 inches long. It is also 3.25 inches wide.
It’s made from a heavy pressboard wood that won’t crumple or lose it’s shape after a few years. It really will last you years and years if you take proper care when packing it away each year. This is definitely heirloom quality that you could even possibly pass onto a child as they get older as well.
This house sort of reminds you of the simpler times during Christmas with the old fashioned style but is still so much fun to open every day.
The slots are big enough that you could easily fill each drawer with a little piece of candy or chocolate to make it even more special when you open each door every day.
The Advent calendar house would make a wonderful gift for someone who likes more of a classic style of decorating for Christmas.

With this lovely wooden decoration you can count down the days until baby Jesus is born in the manger. Each of the drawers of the calendar features a different magnetic piece that goes to the nativity scene.
The calendar ends on day 24 with little baby Jesus inside the last box to be opened to complete the nativity scene.
The calendar can be displayed on a tabletop or even hung on the wall if you would like. It measures 14.25 inches high and is 17.25 inches wide.
This calendar could be a great way for you to teach kids about the real reason why Christmas is celebrated while having fun getting to see which piece you get to put on the scene every day.
You could easily pass this calendar down to other generations as it is really high quality and such a beautiful piece to have during Christmas time.
This is another option for a nativity Advent calendar made from wood that is a little different from the one above.
This one already has the nativity scene right on the front of the calendar and each day you open a different door. With this item you can fill the drawers with different goodies such as candy or chocolate as well as with a short Bible verse printed on paper as well.
The calendar measures 18.5 inches wide and is 15 inches high. Like the other items it is made from a sturdy wood that will last many years.
Wood Advent Calendar for Kids
Although you could probably get any of the wooden Advent calendars for a kid, as they are a lot sturdier than a cheap, flimsy one that could easily be broken there are some that are specifically geared towards children.
This adorable little gingerbread house will really make your child’s day as they get to open the little drawers and discover a surprise inside. Each drawer is big enough for a small piece of candy or even a small toy.
There are 24 slots to open in the calendar with the 24 days leading up to Christmas morning.
It is made of a real sturdy wood but is not super heavy so kids you don’t have to worry about it being too top heavy for a younger child to play or look at.
It is made by KidKraft, a popular toy manufacturer who is also the company that makes the large wooden dollhouses, so you know you are getting a quality product.
A nice thing about this particular wood calendar is that it is not as expensive as most of the other ones but it’s a quality product that can be used year after year.
I would recommend this Advent calendar for younger kids probably under the age of 7 or 8 to just give them an idea of Advent is as well as a fun decoration that they can play with as well.
This wooden Advent calendar for kids is different from the others in that it doesn’t have drawers or slots to place items in, but instead has 24 colorful and fun Christmas ornament magnets that stick on the tree. It also comes with a big shining star at the top that you can use for Christmas day as well.
Each day your child can place an ornament of their choosing onto the appropriate number to countdown the days. The magnets fit right in the box at the bottom of the tree and each one even features a little Christmas poem on the back that you can read to your child.
The tree measures 16.4 inches high and is 12 inches wide. It looks adorable sitting on a table or shelf or even put in your child’s room to decorate their space as well. It is recommended for ages 4 years and up because of the magnet pieces, so keep that in mind if you are going to let it be accessible to your child.
This could be a nice alternative for an Advent calendar that you fill so you don’t have to give your child candy or a small toy everyday.
