The 10 Best Stocking Stuffers to Get at Aldi
While everyone else is dealing with crowded big-box stores and fighting with customer service representatives over lost packages, you can go to Aldi and avoid all that. That’s right, Aldi! Hit up the discount grocery store and get all the ingredients you need for holiday hosting, plus holiday gifts to wrap and put under the tree and all sorts of stocking stuffers.
We popped into a store to check out the stocking stuffers and got loads of ideas. Yes, most were chocolate-related, but that makes sense, considering Aldi offers award-winning chocolate at low, low prices. These are our top 10 picks for stocking stuffers from Aldi this year.
1. Moser Roth Chocolate Bars, $1.99 each
These chocolate bars are probably Aldi’s most iconic items (yes, even over the wine and cheese advent calendars!). They’re stocked year-round, award-winning, and feature individually wrapped blocks for easy eating.
2. Crofton Mini Baker, $3.99
How cute is this mini four-by-six-inch cast iron baker? It’s small enough to fit in a stocking and big enough to hold an individual portion of mac and cheese or even a cobbler. Another idea: Get enough to make a set and turn it into a full-blown present to go under the tree.
3. Merry Moments Ugly Sweater Wine Bottle Cover, $2.99
The ugly sweater trend continues! And now, it’s made its way to wine bottles. Slip this into someone’s stocking if they love to decorate the house for the holidays.
4. Specially Selected Gourmet Vinegar Gift Set, $8.99 for four 3.4-ounce bottles
We couldn’t get over the quality of this gift set. Break up the package and slip one bottle into every stocking hanging on the mantel.
5. Choceur Belgian Chocolates Gift Card Holder, $1.99
Chances are, you’re going to slip a coffee shop gift card into a stocking, right? Make it a little more special by putting the gift card into this little box of chocolates first. It’s got a special sleeve designed just for this purpose.
6. Specially Selected Fruit Spread, $1.99
Available in Red Pepper Jelly or Pineapple Jalapeño Spread, one of these jars would be great in a stocking for anyone who’s super into cheese boards or sandwiches.
7. Choceur Chocolate Lollipop, $1.69
These chocolate Santas couldn’t be jollier if they tried! Slide a few into each stocking and then use the leftovers to dress up the envelope of some holiday cards that you plan on handing out in person.
More of a teddy bear family than a Santa family? This star-shaped gift box is sure to impress. It’s also got a ribbon loop at the top, which means it can be used as an ornament or even to dress up the neck of a bottle of wine.
9. Benton’s Snowman Grahams Vanilla or Cinnamon, $1.99
If you want to break up all the chocolate, try these little snack packs of graham cracker-like treats. There are six in a box and they all have that cute winter-centric design.
10. Moser Roth Grand Chocolates Crispy Hazelnut or Milk Chocolate Truffle, $2.99
Okay, here’s one last chocolate. These truffles remind us a lot of a fancier type (we don’t want to name any names here, but it rhymes with shmindt) and they’re at least $20 less expensive per bag! Add a handful of candies to each stocking.
