This Homemade Crisp Advent Calendar Is Perfect For Those Without A Sweet Tooth

'Merry Crispmas'

If you prefer savoury food to sweet, it’s hard to get excited about traditional, chocolate advent calendars.

While there’s plenty of alternative calendars in the shops this Christmas - from boozy boxes to beauty bundles - they usually don’t come cheap.

One boyfriend got around the problem by making his girlfriend a homemade countdown using one of her favourite snacks: crisps.

Alex Donoyou surprised Heather Loyd with the creation, which he’s dubbed the ‘Crispmas’ calendar.

Donoyou’s homemade masterpiece contains 25 bags of crisps of a variety of flavours.

He’s hidden each packet in a red and white striped bag to ensure the untraditional calendar still feels suitably festive.

Better still, his ‘Crispmas’ creation doubles up as a decoration.

Best boyfriend ever?
