Last minute advent calendar ideas

The whole advent calendar thing in our house is very complicated!
Mum made both the girls a calendar some years ago and would add a little token gift (as normal) for each day.  But as they have grown so have the gifts.  So much so, that now the gift is replaced with a card & number which they then go to a large box of a gifts to find the matching one. 
With only one day left till the calendars start to be opened, here are a few ideas that may help you meet that deadline!

Inspired by this Tea Wreath by Kojo Designs, Red Red Completely Red converted the idea to an advent calendar.
Make little pouches like the ones that were available from Nuvonova
A chain advent calendar is another fun, easy & quick option.  Link from
& the Maya*Made idea of a tree is of course fabulous!

Do you celebrate the countdown to Christmas with an advent calendar?

And, I have to say, the advent tea wreath is just my favourite part of advent so far (more so than chocolates, which is saying a lot!). Thanks for showing others the idea!
