Beautiful Wooden Advent Calendars

Advent calendars are such a fun way to get excited during the festive season. With 101 things on your 'to do' list it's easy to get bogged down with the stresses and strains of getting ready for Christmas so a little daily treat is a well earned!

This wooden calendar not only looks gorgeous but it will last year on year and gives you the flexibility of having the perfect treat whether its chocolate or toys.


Here at Pod we LOVE this cute Wooden Reindeer, beautifully crafted in wood and painted a very festive red, this gorgeous calendar is ready for you to fill with the perfect treats.

For lots more calendars and fabulous gifts have a look at our online Christmas Shop.

WE LOVE Friday...

We have got so many lovely products here at Pod we've decided to start a 'WE LOVE Friday' feature to highlight that weeks favourite product. It could be a product that our customers have particularly loved that week, or it could be a new product that we at Pod love and think you will too, you could even suggest a product which you think deserves a 'WE LOVE Friday' feature.

So to start us off we have... 

Orla Kiely 1 Litre Multi Stem Storage Jar

We are all big fans of Orla Kiely at Pod and this storage jar epitomises the Orla Kiely style and quality. The classic stem print and wooden lid gives this jar its stylish retro edge.
