This helpful gift guide will help you find the Best Gifts for ALDI Shoppers and Superfans, whether you’re an ALDI nerd yourself or simply searching for the perfect gift for one!
Your ALDI obsessed friends and family have their quarter ready for a cart and they’ve discovered their favorite ALDI products. These useful items will come in handy during regular shopping trips, making life just a little easier (and possibly a little more fun!). Take a look and let me know if there’s anything you would add…
ALDI Quarter Keeper Keychains
These handmade ALDI quarter keeper keychains come in dozens of styles and colors – and make the perfect gift for the frequent ALDI shopper, who needs to have a quarter at the ready for an ALDI cart! Most are priced around $5!
Note: You can also purchase an actual quarter attached to a keychain. Just remember that you’re often asked to switch carts at the ALDI checkout – and having your keys stuck in a cart may complicate things a bit.
Reusable Grocery Bags
ALDI cuts costs and encourages environmental — by encouraging shoppers to bring and use their own reusable bags. While you can always purchase inexpensive paper or plastic bags in the store, sturdy reusable bags are a useful gift! My favorite are the ripstop nylon bags – they fold up small enough to put in a purse or pocket and wash up easily. My BAGGU bags have lasted for over a decade without a sign of wear!
BAGGU Standard Reusable Shopping Bags cost around $10 each. These are the top of the line and my favorite brand. While they’re not cheap, they can hold up to 50 pounds (the same as 2-3 plastic grocery bags!) and are the perfect size for your groceries. I love that the handles are long and strong enough to slip over my shoulders for easy carrying as well. Choose a fun print or a simple solid.
Looking for a cheaper alternative? This set of 5 BeeGreen Reusable Grocery Bags is made from ripstop polyester. Although they may not last as long, they still fold up small and wash easily (and they have earned rave reviews). Find more BeeGreen bags here.
There are more fun ALDI tote bags, including this ALDI Nerd bag and This is my ALDI bag. I forget it ALDI time.
Thermal Shopping Totes
Look for a sturdy, washable insulated shopping tote like this Rachael Ray Jumbo ChillOut 10 Gallon Thermal Tote. The extra large 10 gallon size makes it great for refrigerated and frozen items, plus the handles adjust to carry items horizontally (making it easy to transport even a large pizza)! It works for more than groceries, too, so you can use it for parties, beach days, tailgating and camping.
Occasionally, ALDI will carry thermal totes in the store, so keep your eyes open!
Celebrate super fan status with an ALDI shirt. You may want to stick to wearing these when you DON’T plan on shopping, lest you get mistaken for an employee! The styles and designs available do change frequently, so if you find one you really like, be sure to order it.
