The Body Shop has just released pics of the new advent calendars and they're GORGE

It is far too early to start saying the ‘C’ word but it’s never too early to start talking advent calendars.

Yes, the gift that keeps on giving – literally – is one of our favourite things to receive (or buy for ourselves) during the festive season and many brands are already teasing their festive offerings, including The Body Shop.

The Body Shop was responsible for one of the world’s first beauty calendars over 15 years ago and now it's back with four new offerings that have us feeling spendy.

This year’s vibrant packaging is inspired by the luscious layers and thriving wildlife of the forest and they are filled with much more than just products.

25 Days of the Enchanted Deluxe Advent Calendar - €120

"They also set a 25-day challenge with small, fun tasks to help you get out, rejuvenate in nature and make the world a wilder place," say the folks at The Body Shop.

"After, the treat boxes transform into a picture puzzle that reveals even more beautiful beasts roaming in this enchanted forest."

Two of the calendars are filled with 25 days of gorgeous treats including a full-sized body butter and four makeup essentials.

The Ultimate calendar also includes 14 other full-sized products like the Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask and the Oil of Life Intensely Revitalising Cream.

The original and bestselling calendar is also back with 24 days of skin-loving surprises including the Vanilla Delight Bath Bomb and the Coconut Body Scrub.

They also include the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask which just sounds delightful, doesn’t it?

And finally, there’s a 100 percent vegan option that’s a little smaller (and therefore more affordable) for those who fancy it.

Filled with cruelty-free makeup and bath bombs to carry you through the festive season.

Countdown to New Year - €65

All of the calendars are due in stores next week.
