As promised here is my second post about the Aldi Christmas Range. Here are my favourite items from the non-food range. I have chosen my favourite make-up, homewear, clothing, candles and toys. There were so many incredible things to see and to choose my favourites from. It was a tough choice. But keeping you readers in mind I have picked what I thought were great bargains and things that were different from Aldi this year.
If you want to see the food range, go look at this post from last week!
The Clothing Range
My first visit was to the clothing range where I found, of course, the family range of Pajamas. One of those Instagram moments, maybe? Haha, there is no way I could get my boys wearing matching pajamas! There was also a brilliant range of Christmas jumpers, some cute, some subtle, some over the top, all for really great prices. Even the premium jumpers will be retailing at £10.99. Can you see the dressing gowns on the bottom shelf? They were made from the softest fabric and I have already added one to my Christmas list.
I was very excited to see the dress up children’s outfits. A real bugbear of mine is parents having to pay a fortune for nativity outfits. Not this year, there were angels, stars, shepherds, father Christmas outfits all for £4.99.
There were lots of highlights in this range that I was very excited to see. But firstly let me show the ridiculous. A sofa for your pets. Yes a velvet sofa for you dog or cat, I can tell you know there is no way Trev would sleep on this!! You can also see a glimpse of the pet jumpers as well. I did try to get Trev to wear one of these last year, he was having none of it.
The tablewear was beautiful. I found two very special favourites, and am now thinking that its time to replace my cutlery with this copper set that I loved so much.
And this champagne glass was just beautiful, its going to cost £4.99 for a set of two glasses. Heavenly. You see the table setting as well, all whites, nordic silvers.
I also loved this cute velvet chair, its comes in two colours, with midnight blue shown here, also available in grey. This would sit perfectly in the corner of my living room. And paired up with the puff it looks very beautiful. The chair is going to be priced at £79.99, a total bargain.
The Children’s Toys
The theme this year again for toys is wooden, which I really like. Mostly as the early years of my boys were mostly filled with plastic tat, now long gone. Wooden feels more traditional. Everything will cost less than £100 and will be market leading in price. There was beautiful kitchen sets and this three story dolls house was amazing, and it comes with furniture. A lovely gift for your little ones. And I loved the wooden cakes.
Aldi are now very famous for their candle range. I see them everywhere in people houses, in spas. People have realised Aldi is the place to go for a candle costing £4 that smells like a Jo Malone candles ten times more in cost. The range has had a re-brand for Christmas and is looking more individual, no longer a ‘dupe’ of another brand. There are lots of new scents introduced for Christmas too including Rose Noir, and Expresso.
I cannot deny this range excites me every time I see it with lots of new products available for Christmas. Along with a very beautiful Advent Calendar that starts on Christmas day and ends on New Years Day, making a perfect gift.
Stand out products were the new smaller sized eye shadows, the new lash building mascara, the dual eyes and face face mask. Again like the candles, Aldi are moving towards building their own individual brand here, rather than a dupe brand, after such success over recent times.
And finally Aldi Christmas Gifting Pudding Lights
I couldn’t resist these, they are gorg. The perfect lights for the front garden!
