It is time to open up the final package of the Simply Gilded advent calendar. From feeling the packaging, I knew it wasn’t going to be washi, so I wasn’t all that surprised when this super cute and adorable key chain popped out.
I like the various charms used, the only thing missing is a washi roll charm.
Let’s talk the advent calendar as a whole. I got everything in the pic below for $54. Based on pricing for washi from SG normally, I’d guess the washi was at least $40 of the package, plus we got the key chain, magnet, sticky notes, and bow charm and clip. I think the price is completely reasonable and that I got my money’s worth.
One of the things I like the most was that the washi was not holiday specific. I’ll be able to use these items year round. My favorite rolls were the swans and the constellations, but there really wasn’t a bad roll in the bunch.
Not only would I buy another SG advent calendar, I would give it as a gift to a paper crafter without hesitation. Everyone can always use more washi, and SG washi is excellent quality. My only suggestion for possible improvement next year would to have coordinated colors, or even options for coordinating color themes if you want to buy more than one.
