The Gifts of Advent

by Cindi SutterFounder & Editor of Spirited Table®

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC is one of my favorite destinations. I discovered that many of our museums provide the perfect place for holiday shopping, at their various Museum shops. 

Purchase your Met Advent Calendars on sale the week after Christmas! The intricacy of each calendar reminds me that this season represents something far greater than just gift giving and what's under the tree. It's about preparing your home and heart for the arrival of the Christ child. 

Let's unwrap the season of Advent together with a few of my favorites. 

Tabletop Advent Calendars - from the Metropolitan Museum of Art - Gift Shop. The front and the back of each calendar is placed upon the same textile background, so you can easily recognize both sides.
