A few years ago I bought this advent calendar from Pottery Barn Kids
I was ambitious back then, before I had my youngest, and I bought my 2 girls little treats for each pocket, (Yes, that is 50 presents that I WRAPPED)...then I had my son...and I can't get 75 presents...that would be Freakin' Craziness!
So instead this year I bought a couple gifts but did mostly family activities (i.e. go look at Christmas lights, get doughnuts before school, watch a Christmas movie, stay up late, have a family game night) and printed them on Christmas paper and put them in coin envelopes, some of them say "present"...much easier:)
here are some great calendars that you can make at home today 
(and don't have to wrap and try and fit in mini felt pockets)
