Last year, Aldi introduced an 8 Nights of Hanukkah Chocolate Calendar, and it was the first time I can recall the discount grocer selling something specifically for the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah.
Now, in 2023, the most recent weekly Aldi ad features an whole array of Hanukkah decorations. Aldi is selling doormats, four-foot inflatables, lighted garlands, and reversible box signs all to celebrate the Festival of Lights.
Hanukkah, also called the Festival of Lights, is a Jewish festival that remembers when the Maccabean Jews retook Jerusalem and rededicated the Second Temple during the second century BCE. When those Jews went to light the Temple’s menorah or candelabrum, they discovered there was only enough consecrated oil to last for one day. However, they lit the menorah and the oil lasted for eight days until new oil could be prepared. Now, Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days by lighting candles on a menorah. In 2023, Hanukkah begins at sundown on December 7th and ends on the evening of December 15th.
Here’s a closer look at the Hanukkah decorations coming to Aldi. These are scheduled to arrive in stores on November 15th of 2023.
Keep in mind that these are all Aldi Finds, which means they’re only in stores for a short time. Each store gets one shipment, and after it all sells out, it’s gone unless Aldi decides to bring it back next year. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products that are out of stock at your local store.
Huntington Home 18″ x 30″ Deluxe Hanukkah Doormat
This doormat costs $6.99, which is at least half the cost of other Hanukkah-themed doormats I found online.
This comes in four different designs, including Happy Challah Days, dreidels and Stars of David, large candles in a menorah pattern, and multiple menorahs. It features a polyester face with recycled rubber backing, and non-skid backing helps it stay in place. It’s ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. This is advertised as durable and easy to clean.
Huntington Home 4′ Hanukkah Inflatables
These inflatables cost $12.99 each. That’s significantly less than other Hanukkah inflatables online.
Choose from three designs: a brown bear with dreidel, a dreidel, a menorah, or a polar bear with menorah. These self-inflate in seconds and light up using energy-efficient LED lights. They offer easy setup and include stakes and tethering ropes. They’re designed for indoor or outdoor use and are weather resistant.
Huntington Home Hanukkah Lighted Garland
These cost $4.99, and you won’t easily find similar light strands for less money elsewhere online.
These come in four designs: menorah, Star of David, dreidel, or pom poms. They require 3 AA batteries (not included). Each garland includes a 6 -hour on/18-hour off timer function and contains one strand of 10 LED bulbs. Lighted length is six feet. These are for indoor use only.
Huntington Home Hanukkah Reversible Box Sign
These signs cost $3.99 and measure 9 inches by 5.95 inches.
Aldi is known for selling signs in this style for various seasons of the year and other holidays. These Hanukkah box signs feature a unique design on each side. Designs include Love Light & Latkes / Grab a Blanket and Get Cozy; Happy Hanukkah / We Rise By Lifting Others; Together is Our Favorite Place to Be / This is How We Roll; and Happy Challah Days / Friends & Family Gather Here. These are perfect for your mantel or a tabletop.
