Instead, he decided to build her a giant advent calendar all by himself so she can have a gift for every day leading up to Christmas.

Wow, that's amazing.

He basically got inspired to do this because of the fact that one year his wife left him a gift in a drawer for each day leading up to Christmas.

Benjamin decided to just wing it and figure it all out himself. He got to work and the project took him two days to complete.

And I bet it was totally worth it to spend two days in the cold drinking lots of green tea just to see the look on his wife's face.

Then, when each door is opened, it will reveal a new, wrapped Christmas present. Whoa, so cool!

He got some cheap offcuts from his local DIY store and then pretty much winged it as he went from one stage to another.
