7 Little Luxuries (for $5 or Less) to Pick Up at Aldi
‘Tis the season to remind our loved ones (and ourselves!) how much we love them. But offering a token of appreciation doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, because — remember — it’s the thought that counts. You might be surprised to know that Little Luxuries (our little term for these sweet gestures) can be found just about anywhere, even the grocery store. Even at Aldi.
Here are seven thoughtful gifts to sweeten someone’s day, all for less than $5 at the discount grocer. (Just put one in a gift bag or put a bow on top and you’re all set!)
1. Simply Nature Raw Organic Honey, $3.99 for 16 ounces
Little bear-shaped bottles of honey sure are cute, but they don’t deliver the same deep, rich flavor that raw honey does. It’s just the thing to elevate an evening mug of tea or a grocery store wedge of cheese.
2. Savoritz Parmesan Crisps, $2.89 for 2.11 ounces
For anyone who loves cheese and crackers, these Parmesan Crisps are both! They’re also great for your friend who values efficiency.
3. Barissimo Fair Trade Single Origin Coffee, $4.49 for 12 ounces
For less than a single drive-thru cup of Joe, you can keep a loved one caffeinated with robust home-brewed coffee all week long. Plus, you can feel good about this bag of beans because it is Fair Trade certified.
4. Specially Selected Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels, $2.99 for 10 ounces
These buttery, chocolate-coated caramels are Aldi’s gift to this world all year round — but they make an especially great treat around the holidays.
5. Kombucha Wonder Drink, $2.89 for 14 fluid ounces
Celebrate the holidays with a glass of bubbly… but not the kind you’re thinking of! Raise a glass of fruity and fizzy kombucha instead and avoid a hangover altogether.
6. Moser Roth Luxurious European Chocolate Truffles, $3.99 for 7 ounces
There’s no better way to finish a holiday meal than with a decadent array of beautifully decorated chocolate truffles. Send a box to friends near and far so you can enjoy these together.
7. Benton’s Creme Filled Wafer Rolls, $3.99 for 13.5 ounces
Haven’t found time to bake a batch of cookies this season? Pick up a tin of these filled tuile cookies and skip the floury mess (for now!).
