Writing your “door messages” – tips and hints from Snapajack!

So, as you may or may not know, we are the only company that we know of that can make your personalised advent calendars with a different message behind each door in quantities from as small as 1 to as big as 10,000.

So, if you have chosen the “with door messages” option, you might be wondering what sort of thing you can write behind each door on your advent calendar.

Well, don’t panic, we are here to help.

There are literally all sorts of things you can do, so you can really get creative.

For Children

For small children, you could put a “treat” behind each door such as a trip to the park, a day out at a local attraction, swimming, bowling, cinema or anything else your children like to do. It may be worth making a note of the weekend dates – 1st & 2nd, 8th & 9th, 15th & 16th, 22nd & 23rd – so that if you plan days out as the treat, they fall on the weekend doors.

You could also put a different craft activity behind each door, and spend 25 days making lovely things and spending quality time together. There are loads of Christmas Craft ideas on google, pinterest and facebook if you ever need some ideas!

Another lovely idea for children, is to buy 25 books – even if you get them from charity shops – and then you could put the name of the book behind each door – each evening you could read them the book at bedtime.

If you have a large family, then a message behind each door from 25 different family members is also a lovely idea.


For Adults

If you are buying the advent calendar for your partner, then a very popular door messages theme is to put love coupons / naughty favours behind each door, or just simple lovely reasons why you love them.

We aren’t easily offended and we certainly aren’t shy – so we will print anything you like behind the doors – even it is a bit “blue”. We are used to printing naked photos on to playing cards so a some cheeky messages on calendar doors certainly won’t bother us!

Putting 25 reasons why you love someone is a lovely and romantic build up to Christmas that they will never forget! If you are planning on proposing on Christmas Day then you could even put “Will You Marry Me?” behind number 25! Now that would be an amazing surprise!

There really is so much you can do when it comes to our amazing advent calendars and we always look forward to seeing all your creations!
