This Man Built His Wife a Life-Sized Advent Calendar for Christmas

Dec 09, 2016

Today, let us recognize a man who's gone so above and beyond normal protocol for gift-giving this holiday season that all offerings from other men will likely pale in comparison.

Benjamin Anthony Hewins, a husband from London, England took it upon himself to build a huge (7 foot tall, to be exact) advent calendar for his wife. According to Metro.co.uk, the larger-than-life present housed presents like scarves, shoes, and treats behind each door. While Hewins constructed the whole thing himself, the project only took him two days to complete.

"It really wasn't difficult—just a bit of imagination, a few tools, and loads of green tea," he wrote on his Facebook page.

Significant others of the world, pay attention: this is how you give a gift.
