With the holidays quickly approaching, many children will be getting an Advent calendar to count down the days to Christmas, and get a little bit of chocolate, too. 

Now, thanks to the power of German-based grocery store Aldi, parents can get in on the Advent calendar fun with their own grown-up version. Instead of getting chocolate or candy each day leading up to Christmas, adults will get a true Christmas miracle: wine and cheese. 

The wine and cheese Advent calendars are sold separately, but we recommend just getting both. It's like peanut butter and jelly -- you gotta have both. 

The wine Advent calendar goes for $70 and includes 24 mini-bottles of shiraz, malbec, a red blend, pinot grigio and more. The 24 mini-bottles are equivalent to six full-size bottles of wine. 

The cheese Advent calendar goes for $13 and includes 24 cheeses from around the world, such as Gouda, havarti and cheddar. 

The new Advent calendars will make their debut on Nov. 7.
