Aldi offers this week are Christmas gifts for kids. Yup, Aldi is tapping into the growing trend for getting Christmas gift shopping out of the way early – and doing so at a cut price. Yes, we know it’s supposed to be a magical experience, choosing something your little one will love and treasure, but we all know that the run up to Christmas when you have kids is BONKERS and EXHAUSTING and EXPENSIVE.
So, if you want to enjoy the look on the face of your little ones when they open their presents without feeling exhausted and broke, now’s the time to shop. Aldi has decked out their aisles with everything a child could want, from an indoor bike to an urm… stretchy man (you’ll get it when you see it).
