Believe it or not, Christmas is right around the corner. Okay, so that’s not really true, but here in e-commerce land, we’re already obsessing over the year’s best Christmas gifts. This includes the best Advent calendars to help you count down the days until the Christmas holiday. Advent calendars make for great family gifts, helping everyone in the household celebrate the days leading up to Christmas with a gift or token that celebrates each day in December before Christmas day arrives.
Every year, Funko Pop! releases some of the most popular Advent calendars for Christmas (they make Halloween Advent calendars too!). SPY recently had the chance to preview the upcoming Funko Pop! Advent calendars for 2022 have got us even more excited for the holidays. This year, Funko Pop! has announced new Marvel and Star Wars Advent calendars, which are sure to be a hit among nerds of all ages.
From Pokémon and Harry Potter to The Office and Marvel, there are plenty of Funko Pop! Advent calendars that collectors enjoy. So popular, in fact, that they’re often offered for pre-order and tend to sell out pretty quickly year after year. With them, users can track the days within a particular theme, franchise or brand that they love.
This September, SPY’s Managing Editor Sheilah Villari was privy to a sneak peek of the new Funko Pop! Advent calendar releases for 2022, and they did not disappoint. Many of the 2022 Funko Pop! Advent calendars are already available to order — and some are even on sale via Amazon — ensuring that you’ll get the one you want before it sells out (which was definitely the case last year).
It might seem early to start talking about Advent calendars, but every year the most popular calendars sell out as we get closer to December. Much like shopping early for the best gifts for her, the best gifts for him, or the best gifts for kids, getting a head start by purchasing Advent calendars for your family or friends will save you from panic shopping around after all the good stuff is already sold out or picked over.
Between these and prior releases of the super popular Advent calendars for kids and adults, we figured you could use some help narrowing down the best Funko Pop! Advent calendars for 2022, so we created this list below to help. Keep scrolling to see some of our favorites.
