Easy Bargains

If you're already planning to do some holiday grocery shopping at Aldi, you can save serious time and money by getting gifts at the same time. Besides edible items like wine, candy, and snacks, Aldi also dedicates a couple of aisles to housewares, kitchen gadgets, toys, supplies, and even small appliances. The products available change often, so you might find the perfect present for your aunt on one trip, and a great stocking stuffer for your little cousin two weeks later. Next time you stop at Aldi, head down the Aldi Finds aisle and look for these inexpensive gifts. (And before you make your way there, here are 30 Things to Know Before Shopping at Aldi.)

Prices and availability are subject to change.
