Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Advent Calendar Gifts for December 24th, 2020

Here’s my blogpost with links to four lists of Advent Calendars and 12 Days of Christmas Calendars, plus my “Top Ten” Calendars you should not miss in 2020!

And if you want to learn how to pick up SIX HUNDRED AND SIX presents on Christmas Day, here’s your detailed plan of attack!

Please note that, if you want to get a sense of what each store’s Advent calendar gifts look like before you teleport in, you can peruse Andonia’s exhaustive list of 2020 Advent calendars, which she has published on her Kinky Fox Designs blog. Just press Ctrl-F on your keyboard and do a search for the store name, and you will pull up pictures of most of that calendar’s gifts, to help you decide if it’s worth the trip. Thank you for all your hard work, Andonia!

Now, before we get started, you might want to limber up a bit. You know, touch your toes, do a few deep knee bends. You don’t want to pull a hamstring or something… 😉

OK, now that you’ve stretched those muscles, we’ve got a lot of ground to cover today! While there are a few stores on the grid which will offer presents on Christmas Day (Petite Mort, Oubliette, Ari-Pari, Byrne, perhaps Entice, etc.), most Advent calendars and 12 Days of Christmas calendars give out their final gifts today, on December 24th.

Remember that the Advent calendar at 7 Deadly S[k]ins is unique, in that it gives out a present every single day in December, right up until New Year’s Day! Today’s gift is the Hope skin in the dew skin tone. (Hey, what kind of a colour name is “dew”, anyways? Isn’t dew supposed to be transparent?!??)

You will need to join the 7 Deadly S[k]ins group for L$1,000, or you can buy each of the previous days’ gifts for only L$25 each.

Once again, I have called upon Second Life supermodel Moesha Heartsong to show you the rest of today’s bounty of womenswear gifts. Why, Moesha is now so famous, she doesn’t get out of bed for less than L$10,000 a day!* 😉

The Christmas Eve present from JUMO is the Faline dress in red. There’s no need to join any group, just come and click on December 24th on their calendar. You can also pick up all the previous days’ gifts for free. Don’t forget that JUMO will have a present for you on Christmas Day, and a final end-of-year gift on New Year’s Eve!

The final gift from the Advent calendar at Virtue is this attractive deep red floral Selena dress (the Virtue group is free to join):

Now head over to EscalateD, and look for the green advent tree (not the red one, which requires a paid group join). Note that you only need to click on the green advent calendar ONCE, and you will receive a folder containing all 24 gifts! (If you do click on all 24 dates, you will land up with 24 copies of all 24 presents, and then you will need to spend some extra time cleaning up your inventory to remove all the duplicates!)

The December 24th gift from the EscalateD Advent calendar is this hair and Santa hat combination, which comes in a full fatpack of colours. Shown in the picture below is the hair styling HUD, which also allows you to change the colour of the Santa hat and the left and right scrunchies:

Today’s gift from Essenz are these Graz shoes in purple (the Essenz group costs L$350 to join, or you buy this pair, or any of the previous days’ gifts, for only L$50 each if you do not wish to join the group).


Now I am going to show you gifts from a few Advent calendars where you can make a single visit and pick up all 24 gifts at one time! Highly efficient freebie shopping!

First up is Blackbird Lace, where today’s gift is this festive minidress with an optional matching scarf! While you’re in store, be sure to pick up all the previous days’ presents.

Among the 24 Advent calendar gifts at Coveted is this royal blue winter outfit (no group is needed, just come slap the dates on the calendar; there’s also a patchwork version of this coat as a different day’s present):

The December 24th gift from DM Design is this lovely Lione ballgown, which includes a HUD with 10 different colours! Again, be sure to pick up all 24 gifts at once! A free group join is required to obtain all 24 gifts of womenswear.

Today’s present from Donni’s Dollies is this beautiful white and gold dress (the Donni’s Dollies group is free to join). On one trip you can pick up 24 gifts, and each day’s gift includes both men’s and women’s apparel!

The Christmas Eve gift from ROA Design is this lace Aealia dress, which comes in three different shades: blush as shown below, plus lilac and aqua. Again, you can pick up all 24 Advent calendar gifts at once! No group join is needed.

The Advent calendar at TrendZy has 24 lovely outfits for women! Among them are the two ballgowns pictured below (no group is needed, just come slap the numbers on the calendar).

Fashion Fantasy has two Advent calendars with 24 gifts each, one for women and one for men. Moesha models two of the women’s presents: a floral halter top from December 8th, and embroidered leather pants from December 19th (no group required; here’s the SLURL to take you directly to the Fashion Fantasy calendar):

And among the 24 gifts from the Fashion Fantasy for Men Advent calendar is this red hoodie (don’t forget to hit Donni’s Dollies for 24 menswear gifts, too!).


But I have saved what I think is the most generous Christmas Eve gift for last! Pop down to Celestina’s Weddings, join their store group for free, and snap up this glorious golden ballgown, which includes the gold and diamond Mon Amour earrings and necklace!

Happy freebie shopping!

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Advent Calendar Gifts for December 22nd, 2020

Here’s my blogpost with links to four lists of Advent Calendars and 12 Days of Christmas Calendars, plus my “Top Ten” Calendars you should not miss in 2020!

If you want to know my plan of attack to pick up a whopping 629 free Christmas presents on Christmas Day, here it is!

The gift from the Advent calendar at 7 Deadly S[k]ins is not one but two fatpacks of the Nadine skin, which means you can pick up ten different skin tones of this skin today, available in both Bakes on Mesh/system skins and Omega skin appliers.

& Deadly S[k]ins Nadine skin in the caramel skin tone

Don’t forget that the 7 Deadly S[k]ins store group does cost L$1,000 to join during December, but I think it’s worth it. (Or, if you prefer, you can pick up all the previous days’ gifts for just L$25 each, using my daily Advent calendar blogposts as a guide.) Unlike other store calendars, the 7 Deadly S[k]ins Advent calendar has gifts every single day, including the days between Christmas and New Year’s!

Virtue‘s gift today is the Rosita dress in purple (the Virtue group is free to join):

Today’s gift from Essenz are these fun, strappy Amsterdam shoes in serenity blue. The HUD allows you to change the colour of the sole and the hearts, as well as change the metals. The Essenz group cost L$350 to join, or you can buy this pair for only L$50 if you are not a group member.

Today’s present from the 12 Days of Christmas calendar at Baby Monkey is the Darla skirt with side pockets (see red arrow), worn with two previous gifts from the same calendar, the shawl collar sweater and the slingback pumps. No group join is required, just pay L$1 for each gift and your Linden dollar will automatically be refunded.

I leave you with today’s gift from the 12 Days of Christmas calendar at JUMO, this lovely Barbara gown in green. You don’t need to join any group, just come and slap the December 22nd star and it’s yours!

That’s it for today…happy freebie shopping!

Today’s gift from 7 Deadly S[k]ins is a fatpack of freckled skins, called Maze. These skins come in five skin tones (taupe, oak, walnut, pecan and coconut), in both Bakes on Mesh/system skins and Omega skin appliers. The store group costs L$1,000 to join, but it’s worth it. (Or, if you prefer, you can pick up all the previous days’ gifts for just L$25 each, using my daily Advent calendar blogposts as a guide.)

Today’s present from the Advent calendar at NYNE Hair is this girdled shirt dress (you don’t need to join any group to pick up this gift):

For your final stops, may I suggest a couple of stores where you don’t need to join any group at all? Just teleport in with the SLURLs provided here, and slap the boards to receive a random gift, every day from now until Christmas Day! Simple as pie.

Our first destination is Addams, where you can find this large sign at the entrance. Hit it and you’ll get an item of women’s apparel or footwear!

Next is the hair megastore Alli & Ali Designs, where there are two blue Advent calendar boards as shown here by the red arrows:

Just slap each of them, and you’ll receive two random gifts from Alli & Ali (or, if you’re really unlucky, the exact same gift twice!). The random gifts include several snow white women’s and men’s hairstyles and beards, and a L$500 gift card good for any of the over 900 hairstyles in the mainstore. So try your luck!

Happy freebie shopping!
