These two Advent calendars will definitely be a huge hit. People should check with their local ALDI to see if it will offer the exclusive ALDI offerings. It seems highly likely that these offerings will sell out quickly.

If you are lucky enough to get one of these Advent calendars, it doesn’t mean that you have to eat and drink every day in anticipation of Christmas Day. Just because a little door unveils a new wine or cheese, you can save up these treats for a bigger celebration.

A fun idea could be to save a few wines and cheeses for Sunday. Then, you could have a smorgasbord of wine and cheese fun. Figuring out which wines and cheese pair well could be a fun tasting event.

Given that these treats are smaller, the calendar won’t have enough goodies to host a huge holiday party. It could be a fun hostess gift or holiday gift. But, you will have to think ahead. These calendars are likely to sell out quickly. Don’t expect to find them by Thanksgiving, since they are likely to be long gone.
