But this year, why not indulge in a very different kind of stocking.
Lovehoney has unveiled its sexy advent calendars to be sure to add some spice to the season.
There are five different versions to choose from, so there’s something to cater for every kink.
There’s a ‘sexploration’ couples' kit, a calendar filled entirely with lingerie and two official Fifty Shades calendars.
You know it’s going to be good when it’s been given the seal of approval from E L James, the mastermind behind the saucy trilogy.
