January is a quiet month for holidays, and once all the decorations are tucked away, things can feel a little quiet. Maybe too quiet for your social calendar’s liking. But fear not — Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, giving you a reason to celebrate love in all its forms.

Whether you’re planning on hosting a Galentine’s Day brunch with close friends, having your sweetheart over for a candlelit dinner, or looking to spruce up your bare office desk with some Cupid-approved decorations, Aldi is chock-full of finds to get you in the Valentine’s Day spirit. Case in point? This ridiculously cute Strawberries Valentine’s Day Fabric Garland, which you can grab at Aldi now for just $4.99.

Although February may sound like it’s way down the road (the year just started!), you might want to make your way to the store now, before the popular item sells out. Aldi only recently added the strawberry-and-hearts decoration to store shelves and it’s already making the rounds on TikTok.

TikTok user Maddie Kerns posted a video showing off new Aldi finds for the week of January 10, and when she reached for the strawberry-and-hearts garland, she gushed, “Oh my gosh, it’s a strawberry one. That’s adorable.” Viewers responded enthusiastically to the video. Since posting, the TikTok has amassed 23,000 likes, and among its 200-plus comments, multiple users said they were headed to their nearest Aldi soon. One user shared, “Running to Aldi first thing in the morning! 🏃🏼‍♀️ ” and another commented, “Me on my way to Aldi after watching this 👀.”

The garland is a little over 6 feet long and includes loops at each end, making it easy to hang up on a mantel, doorway, or wall. The garland is a perfect addition to an office Valentine’s Day party or to cozy up your living room. With alternating pink hearts and red strawberries, it’s easy to see why someone commented, “The garlands >>” on TikTok user Katy Simmons’s video featuring the aesthetically pleasing decoration.

Can’t make it to an Aldi in time? No worries. Target has some adorable and similarly cheap options, like this 5-foot-long felt heart banner for $3 or, if you want to stay on the fruit theme, this garland for the same price with heart-shaped cherries dangling from the red-and-white string.

If you’re looking for a budget-friendly and frankly adorable way to join in Valentine’s Day festivities this year and celebrate the love and friendship in your life, you won’t find a sweeter deal than these.
