Aldi's Christmas decorations are due in store tomorrow but there are some BIG online exclusives that you should know about. And when we say 'big', we mean 'huge'. Yup, along with all the usual Christmas decorations you'd expect: baubles, fairy lights blah blah, there are some super sized buys that range from hilarious to erm... really quite tasteful.
Take a look below – and don't miss all our Christmas buys, finds and ideas.

1. A 1.4m jewelled stag, £149.99
Let's start with the more tasteful(?) of Aldi's Christmas decorations: a 1.4m jewelled stag. While we can see this on the front lawns of the Kardashians, we don't think it would look out of place outside a suburban semi. Handmade from crystal and with 300 ice white LEDs, it looks really pretty lit up outdoors. It comes with a timer (eight hours on, 16 hours off) but there is an override button for constant use. There ground pegs to keep it from toppling over (or being swiped, presumably).
2. A 1.8m pop-up snowman, £69.99
Yup, a 1.8m pop-up snowman. Need we go on? Okay, we will a little... it's only available online from tomorrow (available for pre-order today), so you'll not find it in the aisles. It's meant for outdoors (must be used with a suitable rated and protected power outlet and the transformer/control box kept indoors), but we could see it in the corner of the lounge... Just us?
What else? The pop-up snowman comes with 200 white LEDs, and an auto timer (eight hours on, 16 hours off) so you can be in control of when the lights are on or off. Easy to assemble, there's a 10m cable and ground pegs are supplied so you won't wake up to find it halfway down the street ('Mummy! I saw a snowman walking in the air!').
3. A 2.4m willow tree, £89.99
Back to 'good' taste, this immense willow tree is perfect for adding a touch of sparkle to your front or back garden for Christmas (or all year round, why not?). It's suitable for indoor use, too, should you want to swap your Christmas tree out for something a little different. There are 810 LEDs, the tree comes with a 2.4m cable, a metal base and ground pegs. It should be noted that it's NOT waterproof, so we're thinking indoors-only, unless you're prepared to put in the legwork to bring it in every time the weather looks dodgy.
4. A 1.8m inflatable santa, £19.99
Always felt something was missing in your life? Obviously it's this 1.8m inflatable santa, people! Great for the front garden or hallway(?!) to welcome/intimidate guests or just for the children to enjoy. It's finished with LEDs for night time use, and its LV transformer with 5m lead cable makes it easy to use. There's a fan for easy inflation, too!
5. A 2.3m inflatable Nutcracker arch, £39.99
Forget a tasteful wreath and stylish garlands, Aldi's Nutcracker inflatable arch is where it's at when it comes to decorating around your front door at Christmas! Fun and easy to inflate, it has LEDs for night time use, while its LV transformer with 10m lead cable means you can easily plug it in and get it set up ready for the festive season. Aldi says 'If used outdoors' (where else is it going to go – oooh around the bedroom door!) 'the product must be connected to a suitable rated and protected power outlet and the transformer/control box kept indoors'. Good news? It's water-resistant so you won't need to worry every time there's a shower.
