Degusta Box countdown to Christmas

Degusta Box is all about surprising people with unique products in which you might not necessarily think about purchasing or choose whilst shopping.

During December they release a very special unique advent calendar which does not consist of chocolate and more chocolate but an array of surprises from pasta to wine, what’s not to love. So it really was a surprise every time when it came to opening the advent calendar doors, as who knew what I would be surprised with.

I was gifted an advent calendar by Degusta Box on a gifted basis to show me how fun surprises can be as I am not one for surprises usually.
