That’s right — adults can now join in the fun of counting down the days until Christmas with grown-up versions containing everything from shaving products or socks to beer or gourmet hot sauces. So, if you want to embrace the excitement and anticipation you felt as a kid as the Christmas holiday approached, consider grabbing one of our picks for the best 2022 advent calendars for men.
