Now Hiring: Luxury Christmas Calendar Tester

Every year in the run-up to Christmas, many people get a festive calendar to count down the days to the main event.

And it’s not just chocolate behind those doors any more. Oh no. From high-end skincare treasure troves filled with retinol and cleansers to premium jewellery calendars, they come in all shapes and sizes. Some offer a full, advent-worthy complement of 24 days of gifts; others - like our very own  Latest & Greatest kit - are supercharged with 12 days of luxury.

But with so many differing advent calendars to choose from, the question is: which makes you feel most festive? Or when that numbered door opens, has the best ability to make your day? To put it to the test, we want to hire our first-ever official festive calendar tester to trial this year’s most luxury calendars.

Yes - really! You can now get paid to test luxury Christmas calendars. And you get to keep all the goodies inside each one.

The role will involve testing out five calendars worth over £1,000 in total and getting paid £300 to rate and review each one.

Find out how to apply below. 

Which premium calendars will you be paid to test?

  • BEAUTY PIE’s Latest & Greatest: 12 products, plus some additional surprises for beauty lovers, our 12-day countdown is brimming with deluxe classics - old and new. It has everything from plumping moisturisers to comforting candles.

  • Astrid & Miyu 12-Day Advent Calendar: This limited-edition set is perfect for those who love exquisite jewellery. Worth over £600, it's one of the most sought-after calendars on the market this year.

  • Hotel Chocolat Large Advent Calendar: Renowned for top quality and ethically-sourced cocoa, chocolate doesn’t get much more luxe than Hotel Chocolat. This countdown offers their best-sellers, plus festive treats and tiny tipples.

  • Cartwright & Butler Advent Calendar: This is the time of year for eating your favourite foods and consuming ALL the cheese and biscuits - so this is the perfect calendar for those who want to try new chutneys and snacks in the run-up to Christmas.

  • Fortnum & Mason Tea Filled Wooden Calendar: Yes, we all love a classic English breakfast tea, but nothing is more boujee than a 24-option tea menu from luxury connoisseurs, Fortnum and Mason.
