Talk about giving Doctor Who fans something to look forward to – Hero Collector has just announced its TARDIS Advent Calendar as a must-have for this year’s festive season!
While some of you may be reeling from this early push toward Yuletide, it turns out Hallmark started promoting its Christmas range in March, so don’t look so shocked by this news! And, let’s be honest, are you really going to complain about this early heads up about a bit of festive frippery after the year we’ve all had?
So be ready to celebrate every day of the holiday season in Doctor Who style, with a spectacular TARDIS Advent Calendar. Designed in the shape of the Doctor’s iconic time machine, this luxury box calendar is absolutely stuffed with 24 high-quality festive gifts and accessories from across space and time. A TARDIS-shaped sandwich cutter, a set of gorgeous coasters with artwork inspired by famous Doctor Who episodes – and even a Sontaran egg cup for that festive breakfast – are just a few of the gifts included for fans to discover.
Created by fans, for fans; each day’s gift comes with a festive note detailing the story and trivia behind it, both wrapped together in branded tissue paper.
It doesn’t end there though, as the calendar also doubles up as a unique storage and display unit to be used long after Christmas is over, providing the ideal place to store those Time Lord collectibles.
The TARDIS Advent Calendar is the perfect pre-Christmas gift for any Doctor Who fan – it’s packed full with presents, so it must be bigger on the inside!
