However you feel about it, Christmas is well and truly on the agenda. It may only be mid-October but some of the best beauty advent calendars have already sold out and some festive adverts have even started to grace our television screens. Today, Missoma has decided to get in on the act with its very first advent calendar promising 12 days of beautiful jewellery.
Contained within the pretty drawers are not just some of Missoma's best-selling pieces – Gold Mini Molten Necklace, Gold Star Bracelet and Gold Mini Claw Charm Hoops – but also places to put them, in the form of a Cosmic Graffiti Starry Eyed Trinket Tray and Purse. The brand has also launched a new Cosmic Hair Clip, which is excellent for the party season and beyond.
What started as a relatively small British brand has exploded since Missoma's launch in 2008 – thanks, in large part, to a wide variety of celebrity fans (a pair of Missoma earrings were most recently worn by Bella Hadid). It seems that nobody, however, can match the ability held by both the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex when it comes to selling products (albeit inadvertently). Whatever they wear sells out in seconds, if it's available to buy, and both have worn Missoma on multiple occasions. Just last week, in fact, Kate Middleton wore a pair of the Gold Zenyu Chandelier Hoops during the royal tour of Pakistan.
Impressively, Missoma's calendar is worth over £695 but costs £395. While it's labelled as an advent calendar, it could also make for a seriously impressive gift for Christmas itself if you're in the market for something special (for yourself or others).
Given Missoma's ardent fan base, however, you may want to be quick – before it sells out.
