Woman makes epic DIY advent calendar for ‘chocoholic’ husband – and it’s amazing
December is just around the corner and for many of us that means over-indulging and plenty of chocolate.
But if you're not overly keen on the teeny tiny chocolates that come in traditional advent calendars, why not make your own – or ask someone to do it for you?
That's exactly what Lindsay Roberts did for her husband – who just so happens to be a big fan of the sweet stuff.
Lindsay bought an array of well-known chocolate bars, including Yorkie, Toffee Crisp, Areo and KitKat Chunky – and wrapped them all up individually.
Sharing before and after pictures on Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group, she captioned the post: "Was looking at advent calendars for hubs last night and decided to DIY it instead!
"Free bit of cardboard from Aldi, chocolate multipacks from Home Bargains and some cheap wrapping paper. Has all his faves in too. (And yes he's a serious chocoholic)," she added.
Fellow Facebook users were thoroughly impressed with the finished result and took to the post to comment.
"Love this idea," one person wrote, while another added: "I'm going to do this as hate paying for them!"

A third person joked: "Wow! I’d have just chucked a box of quality street at him And said make it last 24days. You are brilliant!!!"
A fourth person added: "Oh I like this idea think am gonna do this for my kids."
The epic DIY project comes after it was revealed that supermarket Aldi are selling prosecco and wine advent calendars this year.
The festive countdown, which has sold out in previous years, contains a boozy miniature behind each of its doors.
Aldi's wine calendar features a selection of red, white, rosé and sparkling wine so you can try a lot of different options in December.
All of the miniatures are 187.5ml except the fizz which comes in 200ml bottles.
The advent calendar retails at £49.99, which works out as £2 for each item.
