HOME Bargains is selling a gin advent calendar for those already looking to get into the festive spirit – and it’s cheaper than the one being sold in B&M.
The boozy advent comes with 12 miniature bottles of gin, along with 12 cans of Schweppes tonic, and is being sold for £29.99.
This makes it £5 cheaper than the one being sold in B&M, which is currently being stocked for £34.99.
The Home Bargains gin advent calendar contains the same amount of booze as the B&M version, so you won’t be missing out on gin for your money.
In the Home Bargains version, some of the top-name gins include Gordon’s, Bombay Sapphire and Tanqueray.
The mini bottles contain 50ml each, meaning they’re twice the size of a shot and should mix nicely with the cans of tonic.
What’s included in the Home Bargains gin and tonic calendar?
HERE’S all the gins you get in the boozy Home Bargains calendar.
- Belgravia Gin
- Bombay Sapphire Gin
- Gordon’s Gin
- Gordon’s Pink Gin
- Greenall’s Berry Gin
- Greenall’s Gin
- Hall & Bramley Violet Gin
- Ophir Gin
- Tanqueray Gin
- Thomas Dakin Gin

In comparison, the B&M advent calendar has similar top gin brands, with the addition of Martin Miller and Beefeater.
Just be aware that both calendars might not be the cheapest way to get your G&T fix.
Eight of the mini bottles of booze cost £17.14 to buy individually, although we couldn’t find 50ml versions of Hall & Bramley, Thomas Dakin and What Lies Beneath.
Plus, you can get 150ml cans of Schweppes tonic for just 48p at Waitrose, meaning the total cost for the same amount you get in the calendar adds up to £5.76.
Although, you’d obviously pay more to buy large bottles of all the gins – a 700ml bottle of the gins included in the calendar will set you back between £9.99 and £19 each.
So the calendar could be a low-cost way for you to explore gin-tastic tastes before picking your favourite.
As always, please be Drinkaware.
Wholesaler Costco has also just rolled out a gin advent calendar for a pricier £44.99.
