6 Advent Calendars at Aldi That Will Get You Into the Holiday Spirit, Starting at $4.99
Advent calendars have evolved over the years, but one thing that never changes is the joy of opening something every night. While I’ll never turn down getting a piece of chocolate, there are plenty of other new variations out there that switch up the surprises—and Aldi has every type you could possibly imagine this holiday season.
There’s one for candle burners, one for cheese lovers, one for DIYers—heck, there’s even a 25-day wine calendar (I’ll take one, please and thank you). And even though these are meant to be enjoyed 12 to 25 days leading up to Dec. 25, who’s stopping you from breaking into one now? But grab one while you can at Aldi—whether that’s in-store or curbside—as they’re going quick!
Here are our favorites that are currently available for purchase:
Emporium Selection Advent Cheese Calendar
A cheese advent calendar exists, and I’m running for the shelves to get my hands on this 24-piece set. As the nature of an advent calendar, you have no idea what kind of dairy treat you’re going to get each and every day—but if you love any and all cheeses, that won’t be a problem. And like mentioned on the packaging, this pairs perfectly with the wine advent calendar (more on that later).

Huntington Home Advent Calendar Candle
You never need an excuse to burn a candle, but this advent calendar will help you remember to do so for almost an entire month. The candle comes in scents of peppermint bark, spice cake, and spiced currant, and each has a calendar on the front where you can mark your daily usage. The candle is 18 ounces and is a soy blend, but if you’re worried it won’t last the full 25 days, there’s a solution: buy one of each scent.

From designing ornaments to taking on a mini paint project, you’ll be keeping as busy as a bee (hence the name of the calendar).

Moser Roth 24 Days of Christmas Nutcracker Advent Calendar
No advent calendar roundup would be complete without one that’s strictly all about chocolate. The Nutcracker 24 Days of Christmas calendar provides a single chocolate and truffle every day for over three weeks. They don’t disclose any additional information on flavors, in true advent calendar fashion, so you’ll just have to take it day by day.

Coming in separate dog and cat designs, these advent calendars will make your pet feel included in the 24-day surprises (or make you feel better about getting three for yourself). The treats are Scottish salmon and sweet potato flavored and have no artificial ingredients, colors, or preservatives.
