Why buy a rum advent calendar?
Advent calendars allow us to get into the Christmas mood a little in advance. But why should we choose to buy a rum box?
As they say, after the effort, the comfort. You’ve worked hard all year, you deserve this little box of goodies! Yes, it’s not just children who can enjoy the excitement of advent calendars. You too can enjoy this sense of playfulness with the adult boxes. If you want to break away from the routine of the gourmet boxes or the beauty category, treat yourself this year with some good rum.
Discovering without choosing
Often, we find it difficult to buy a new bottle for fear of being disappointed. So we settle for what we usually drink. But let’s face it, even if you’re a big fan of spirits, buying your favourite bottle for every occasion can get boring.
The solution is to buy yourself a rum advent calendar. It’s the perfect opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and taste all sorts of rums without having to choose. Your box will have a surprise in store for you in each of the boxes, with flavours that you may not have seen before. This is particularly true of boxes that offer rum from the four corners of the world.
The joy of sharing
Do you know someone in your circle who loves rum? Then give them one of these advent calendars! There’s nothing more satisfying than giving someone else a treat. Whether it’s your soul mate, friends, family members or even colleagues. After all, isn’t it the season of giving? This is the time of year when we can further strengthen our bonds, repair them or create new ones. Let’s make some room for the Christmas spirit! It will be a little early, but it’s never too early to give our loved ones a gift.
How do you find the ideal box for you or your loved ones?
You have decided to buy a rum advent calendar, but you don’t know how to find the perfect box. Indeed, it’s hard to choose from all the offers in the shops and on the internet! But don’t worry, the following three criteria will allow you to choose the box that will offer you the best tasting.
The design of the box
In order to attract the buyer’s attention, brands put a lot of effort into the external appearance of their products. The strength, format, illustrations, colours and even the fonts used for the letters. That’s right! When it comes to advent calendars, the adage « clothes don’t make the man » has no place. The design of the box already says a lot about the quality of its contents, so pay special attention to it. Take the one that appeals to you the most, the one that makes you want to discover what’s inside!
The contents of the box
It goes without saying that what the box contains is also very important. So before you put the item of your choice in your shopping cart, take the time to check out what it has to offer. You don’t need to ‘spoiler’ and see the whole list. Short, generalized descriptions are available on the web.
Are they quality rums? What countries do they come from? Are there several varieties available in the box? See if this is what you want to discover at the end of the year, if it is something you will like. Of course, you can also opt for the surprise effect!
The price of the box
Last but not least, the price is an important criterion for choosing your rum advent calendar. Checking the ratio between the quality of the product and its cost is an obvious step before making a purchase. Of course, you like the idea of pleasing yourself or someone else by offering a rum box. However, you don’t necessarily need to pour everything you’ve saved over the year into it. Don’t forget that there’s still the New Year and life goes on after the holidays! That said, even if there are affordable gift sets, don’t fall into the trap of abnormally low prices!
