I have used a few different Advent units over the years and really love slowing down with my family during this time. It's a highlight for me every time! I wasn't sure if I *needed* The Gentle + Classical Christmas unit but I sure wanted it! I bought the printed unit and I am SO, SO thankful that I did!! It was ready to go and so simple to open and jump into everyday - even when we were sick! We loved the activity ideas and they will be so enjoyable to do again in years to come. It would be simple and worth buying the digital unit if the print isn't available. It's a unit to cherish for years to come. I'm not sure my other ones will get much use after this!
