If you can’t find the Aldi Advent Calendar you wanted, these Advent Calendar Alternatives just might save Christmas!
Aldi’s National Advent Calendar Day on Nov. 4 has come and gone. We know that many Aldi fans waited in line for golden tickets to buy the most popular calendars, and many calendars sold out.
While Aldi generally has the best price for the quality on many advent calendars, there are alternatives out there!
So, if you still need to get your hands on a Christmas countdown calendar for a family member, or for yourself, read on for some advent calendar alternatives.
Little People Advent Calendar
We know there are lots of big fans of the Fisher-Price Little People, and we’ve also heard that not all Aldi stores got a shipment of these fun advent calendars. They are available with free Amazon Prime shipping for $30.99.
There is a door to open for all 24 days, and the calendar includes Santa, Mrs. Claus and other Little People Friends, as well as accessories like a Christmas Tree and a snowman.
Frozen Storybook Collection Advent Calendar
We love, love, love these calendars for kids that include a new book to read every day on the countdown to Christmas! The small paperback books are individually wrapped so that there’s a new surprise each day.
These are for sale on Amazon for 15.99, with FREE Amazon Prime shipping.

Coffee Advent Calendar
One of the popular Aldi advent calendars featured 24 different flavors of coffee pods. While this one will only allow you to count down 12 days, the packaging here is super cute.

It’s a fun gift for any coffee lover!
