advent calendarsWith Christmas just around the corner, it’s that time of year again, when advent calendars start popping up, filled with lots of fabulous free giveaways. Giving you the opportunity to snag free applications for just one day, be sure to bookmark your favourite calendars, and start each morning with a free app or prize, available for only 24 hours. Advent calendars aren’t just limited to iPhone or Android apps, but also includes discount vouchers, books, mugs, and even fonts.

We’ve put together a list of Advent calendars that have been running for a few days now, but there’s still 3 weeks worth of prizes and apps to snag, so hurry over to these calendars and start stocking up on lots of freebies.

AdFont

Typography buffs will be delighted to know that FontDeck is giving away one free font a day in their 2010 Advent Calendar giveaway. While it requires a free signup on the site in order to download the fonts, you’ll get one premium font for free per day to use for your posters, websites and all your designing needs.

GameLoft

GameLoft is offering a free game a day in their Advent Calendar for both iPhone and Android users. Follow their Twitter account to be sure you don’t miss out on your daily surprise – which strangely enough doesn’t always actually include a free app but rather sometimes is just a video. Each gift will be available for 24 hours until the next app is revealed.

AppVent are back again this year, giving away one free iPhone/iPad app AND game a day. The apps are available for free on the iTunes app store for free for an entire day. From racing to puzzle games to note-taking apps, in just the first few days, there’s still much to come from AppVent for the rest of the month.

T3

T3 are running an Android Appvent Calendar with one new free app available on their site everyday. Unlike other advent calendars running this month, you have to do a little more than just click a link to get a free app. After following their Twitter account, you will have to tweet to get yourself in a draw for the free app. 50 winners will be notified at the end of each day via DM.

      Unfortunately, as it turn out, you can only use the fonts for free on websites you've registered with the site and purchased a one-time license for - so it's not a completely free giveaway after all.
