But First, Safe Shopping
As a regular ALDI shopper, it makes me happy to say, I always feel comfortable when I shop at ALDI. It’s clear ALDI takes store cleaning and shopper safety seriously. The combination of store cleanliness and the protective measures taken by staff and customers always make me feel safe.
More Time on Your Hands to Try New Recipes!
Since we’re all spending more time at home, it’s an ideal time to try some new festive recipes and meals! A new recipe our family is trying this year is an interactive hot chocolate bar which includes these delicious, trendy, hot cocoa bombs. The boys love to break into these bombs releasing cocoa, candy canes and marshmallows to melt into their warmed milk. ALDI has all the high-quality ingredient you need to make this decadent dessert.
Thoughtful, Interactive DIY Gifts
Looking for a few unique gift ideas? Most of us are in need of family-friendly activities at home this holiday season! ALDI has what you need to make thoughtful DIY gifts and treats. I love gifting a personalized cookie platter kits which contain all the ingredients for my friends to create their own cookie platter or gift baskets with all the necessary ingredients to make homemade hot chocolate.
Since going OUT for date nights has become a memory of the past, the hubs and I have been enjoying our own in-home wine tastings. It’s also a fun idea to do virtually with my girlfriends. ALDI has award-winning wines, many of which are under $10! We’ll pair them with award-winning, high-quality, yet affordable cheese and charcuterie meats that ALDI offers. Some of my personal fave combinations are the Emporium Selection Honey Goat Cheese Log paired with their Appleton Farms Prosciutto.
On-Trend Seasonal Specialities
ALDI has several on-trend and seasonal products available throughout the holiday season, such as Ugly Sweater Cookies and Specially Selected Cocoa Dusted Truffles. I’m using several of these light-hearted treats, fun treats to spruce up the boys’ stockings this year. It love how I can stuff a stocking without breaking the bank.
