This year, Starbucks is putting a fun twist on the classic chocolate advent calendar. The 2015 edition comes in a tree-shaped package that includes 25 reusable tin ornaments and a tree trunk base that's made from a gift card. While getting a set of Christmas decorations and a limited-edition $5 gift card seems like a treat enough, each of the baubles are filled with individually wrapped pieces of milk chocolate and peppermint bark.

The festive Christmas countdown provides a sweet way to celebrate the season year after year.

While few kids and adults would complain about receiving treats from a chocolate-filled advent calendar in a plain rectangular box, there are now dozens of creative Christmas countdowns stuffed with everything from cookies to pastries that take inventive forms.
