Well, versions of that bribery worked for me for about a week and a half until my wife started buying them for me again after we got married. I have had some really great ones over the years but my favorite was a Lego themed one. When I was done I had a little town complete with Santa.

In the meantime here are a two advent calendars for your young or young at heart.
