There are so many different advent calendars out there for kids and adults; LEGO sets, teen picks and even DIY options are just a few of the many you have to choose from. If you haven't checked out the selection at Target this year, the retailer has some exclusive and charming items that are a little different from what you'll find elsewhere.

The tough part is deciding what kind of advent calendar fits your family best. Maybe it's one with candy or small toys or a more simple pick. The Wondershop brand at Target is filled with some really special and reusable calendars that might become part of your family traditions for years to come. There are also Jurassic Park and Pokemon exclusives that have Christmas countdowns you can't find anywhere else.

So don't miss out! We've compiled a list below of some of the best advent calendars Target has to offer this holiday season:

1

A Fabric Option

Wondershop Merry Christmas Hanging Advent Calendar

Your Kids Need One of These Advent Calendars From Target (3)

If this hanging calendar looks familiar, it might be because this style was popular in the '70s and '80s — so it's likely your parents or grandparents had a similar one. We love the simplicity of just moving the tree into numbered pockets and the fact that it can be easily rolled up and stored away for next year.
