advent calendar - easy way?

Hi there,

i want to place an advent calender to a page where every day one different product is displayed and discounted .

So far it seems i have to create 25 vouchers, put them into a database, link all the shop articles to the database, display another voucher every day and tell the custumer to visit a certain product page and use a certain voucher every day.

Much work for me, maybe confusing for the customer but otherwise i cannot make sure each product is only discounted on the very special day?

That seems really awkward - do anyone have a better idea?

Plus i’d rather use php than javscript to filter the database.

Also, is there a simple all-the-way howto from loading databasese to linking them to galeries? There is a documentation for every step but i wonder what to actually do once i get the data…
