Celebrate the best time of the year with advent calendars at ALDI!

Already counting down the days to Christmas? HURRY over to your local ALDI where they will be releasing new 2021 Advent Calendars and the return of popular favorites!

These calendars fly off the shelves every year, and this year they’ll let you claim your spot an hour before store opening, so be sure to set that alarm bright and early if you’re interested.

Whether you’re looking for advent calendars for adults (we’re talking wine and beer!), fun kids advent calendars from Little People, Barbie, Marvel and more or sweet treats, there’s something for everyone! Plus, they make easy and cheap gifts with ALDI’s everyday low prices.

Keep in mind that if you plan to purchase their insanely popular Wine Advent Calendar or Beer Advent Calendar, you’ll need to grab a ticket at the store entrance. This year, ALDI is handing out tickets to customers starting one hour before stores open. Customers then redeem tickets near the stockroom entrance instead of the register.

We’re only sharing a handful of calendars below, so you’re sure to find a larger variety in-store. Best of all, ALDI will be releasing even more new advent calendars throughout November and December! 🙌🏼

Note the alcohol advent calendars are limited to two per customer.

Check out a few of this year’s offerings:

    I’d love to bless my son with the hot wheels and my three daughters with polly pocket to make them remember their childhood.

    • Jaci1717

      U should be good those normally aren’t the ones people r after

    The cost of these can add up, be careful! I bought the .99 chocolate ones from Trader Joe’s this year, and they have 6 different designs available!

    • MaaMaaBear

      Just as a heads up, in the past the 99cent Trader Joe’s chocolate ones have had very cheap waxy tasting chocolate!

      • ella

        Agreed! I like most things TJs has to offer, but the one year I got Trader Joe’s chocolate advent instead of Aldi, my kids wouldn’t touch the chocolate…it was just not good! They asked me to get the Aldi $1.49 ones and I stick with those now.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing, Mel! We’ll have to look for those!

  3. Betsy

    TJ near me already is selling theirs.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for the heads up!

  4. lindak

    Aldi has their stollen in stock now. Bought 2 loaves this weekend. They have the wonderful truffles too.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      YUM! Thanks for letting us know!

  5. Sara

    I was just in aldi and the Lego Star Wars advent calendar is $40! I feel like it may be a little high. I’m going to keep looking for a better price

  6. Lisa

    Anyone know if Aldi’s is selling their Cheese Advent Calendar this year?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes, they are!

    I went this morning and was able to get the beer, hard cider, lego and 2 hot wheels calendars. They sold out FAST and it was crazy at the store, people pushing and fighting!

    • ella

      They had cider ones?!? Darn I bet I already missed out on those! I’ll have to check today just in case. We don’t like beer and don’t drink enough wine, but I have several family members that I would share a cider advent calendar with!

      • Emily NYC

        Not cider i dont think but hard seltzer. I have extras in Myrtle Beach SC if you are near

  8. Urvi

    The lady said I was lucky to get the cheese advent. There were only four left at 9:30. People had lined up since 8:30 she said. And when some ran out she said they accused staff of buying them up. She’s like “Aldi doesn’t pay me enough to buy $30 cheese” 🤣
