BBG Advent Calendar

6 March 2019

Question: what do you get when you add 3 rolls of wrapping paper, 25 models, 1 excitable intern, a Pritt Stick and countless Christmas stickers? Answer: the Boys by Girls advent calendar of course!

Do you remember when you were eight years old and your mum handmade you an advent calender to make the Christmas season even more exciting for you? In an act of love we decided to take a trip down memeory lane... with a BBG twist. You lucky people are in for a magical festive treat this December, as we eagerly count down the days until Santa climbs down the nation's chimneys, with a little help from some of our favourite models. This advent calendar with a difference contains treats that will excite you much more than any little piece of chocolate ever could. Behind each door is a wonderful model card with a face that looks as though it was carved by the Christmas angels themselves. And as if that isn't enough, we will also reveal to you an original hand written note and illustration by the model themseleves.

We've got an amazing selection of boys for you from a variety of agencies, writing about their ideal gifts, favourite Christmas memories or about what Cristmas means to them. Lots of magic to be shared.

Follow the BBG advent calendar on twitter and Instagram as we open a new door every day in December until the 25th. Merry Christmas!

PS. The cat ate the "S".
