Advent Calendars

So who does advent calendars?  I love them so much but I am not very consistent.  I just don't like the grocery store bought advent calendars, so I end up just not doing one.  I am planning on doing one for the girls this year.  They would just love it.   The problem is, I have no idea what I want to do exactly.  I've been on Pinterest alot, and there are so many great ideas.  It's hard to figure out exactly what I want to do.  I would love to see / hear about what ya'll do in your homes for Advent calendars.  I need some inspiration here, and there's not much time left. 

Here are a few that I love from Pinterest

Drive around and look for Christmas lights

I like the idea of giving an ornament to put on the tree for each day.  What's your favorite?

I remember doing them as a kid. Just the counter calendar that you took a chocolate out of. I saw one at Target about 4 years ago. It was this beautiful wooden vintage-looking small "cabinet" of sorts that had different drawers to pull out. Thought it was so pretty. Never got it :( I think they're fun, but haven't actually done it. Maybe I'll start next year?!
