Aldi’s Advent Calendars Are Better Than Ever This Year
Posted at 8:08 AM, Sep 20, 2020

Are you already counting down the days until Christmas? You’re not alone. Even before Halloween, I start looking forward to the holiday season.

My favorite way to count down to Christmas is with an Advent calendar, which has individual compartments for every day of December leading up to Christmas Day — and each compartment hides a little gift to make the season bright.

Aldi always has some great Advent calendars during the holidays, and this year is no different. The retailer has announced more than 20 Advent calendars that will be available beginning Nov. 3. Additional calendars will launch throughout November and December.

Along with bringing back some of the store’s most popular calendars, you’ll also find new ones for kids, adults and even pets. Check out a few of our favorites from Aldi’s 2021 collection:

Emporium Selection Advent Cheese Calendar, $14.99

Cheese connoisseurs will love celebrating the days of December with the 24 festive mini cheeses inside this calendar. This annual favorite is back in all its cheesy glory, so cheese fans can count down to Christmas one salty, creamy bite at a time.


Aldi’s Wine Advent Calendar, $59.99

You can pair the daily cheeses from your cheese Advent calendar with the wines from Alid’s wine-filled calendar. A true fan-favorite, the wine calendar costs $10 less this year, and still includes 24 mini bottles so you can have a glass of wine every day leading up to Christmas.


Aldi’s Beer Advent Calendar, $49.99

What better way to say “hoppy holidays” than with a beer Advent calendar? Toast to the season every night leading up to Christmas with an array of different brews.
