My mum made my advent calendar (it’s like a blanket with little stockings on it) and although at first it started with chocolates and stickers, it then evolved to anything my mum could stuff into the tiny socks. And eventually to her hanging numbers off of string that corrolated to the presents sitting below. And this year, well this year it got to the point of her putting a basket of 24 presents below the calendar and declaring I could open any which one I chose (although I seem to horrify her every morning by picking the wrong ones)
