It might seem strange talking about Christmas in the middle of Summer. However now is the time most retailers and brands are having PR events showcasing what to expect at Christmas.
Not being an Aldi shopper, I had no idea what to expect, however I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised.
I believe that this Christmas Aldi will receive a large amount of my coins, as items like their candles and fragrances will make great gifts.
The event showcased a range which included food, homeware, beauty, kitchenware.
Needless to say I was taken aback, not just by the various ranges, but the quality and estimated prices.
A FEW OF MY FAVOURITES
So everyone loves an advent calendar. Over the last few years there have been various interpretations on the traditional advent calendar. However I have never seen a wine advent calendar…yes I said wine ?
I also really loved the luxury countdown to Christmas advent calendar, which is skincare and fragrance based.
Something tells me that this will be quite popular.
The eau de toilettes and candles, were essentially dupes for Jo Malone, but for a fraction of the cost. Some of the fragrances included pairings such as fresia and pear, along with lime, basil and mandarin.
In terms of when the Christmas ranges will be available, we were given timelines starting from October, however at the time of the event it was still to be confirmed.
To be honest, this post has only covered a fraction of the range, as I haven’t even touched on the amazing food and drinks that I sampled.
All in all, I definitely have been converted into an Aldi shopper, and so from one shopper to another ‘Happy Christmas’ even though it is July!
