When I first walked into the Aldi 2016 Christmas event, I had to do a double, no, wait, a triple take.
I can’t say I’ve been to Aldi for a while, but when I have been in the past, it gives me the impression of being cheap and basic.
This wasn’t reflected in their Christmas range. If I went to someone’s house and they served me this, then told me it was from Aldi, I would have punched them in the arm and said LOLOLOL UR FUNNY. But seriously where did you get this stuff from?
It was stunning. The Brie with truffle was my highlight for sure from the food section. I may have taken 3 big chunks and I’m not even sorry. I spent a long time chatting to one of the buyers about cheese and it sounds amazing.
Moving on to the beauty section, you need to take note of the beauty advent calendar. I believe it’s to retail at £20 – it’s not your average beauty calendar, each day there’s something different in the box with the idea if you start using the product on the day you open it, you’ll have lovely skin by Christmas.
On to the homeware section. All I need to say is copper pans.
I need these. All of these. With the most expensive pan in the range being £10.99, you can’t go wrong. They’ll be out in October and I’ll be paying a visit for sure. Oh, and the kitchen aid – around £60.
In the gift range, there was also a retro metallic gold telephone and a record player.
What a stunning selection.
Warning – this post is photo heavy – but it’s worth sharing. There’s a video of the event at the end, too.
