Aldi Advent Calendars 2023
2023 Aldi Advent Calendars are coming to stores NOVEMBER 1 – that's NEXT Wednesday! These are always popular every year and Aldi does NOT disappoint with these fun calendars each year.
Advent calendars at Aldi are so fun and they do have so many different options. They have themed advent calendars like Jurassic Park and Matchbox Cars, chocolate advent calendars, DOG and cat advent calendars, and …. cheese advent calendars?! (It's a real thing and such a cute idea!)
Just a heads up – these are EXTREMELY popular. If you have a specific one that you're looking for – go early on the day they open. My store regularly has people lined up waiting for the store to open on the November 1 release date. They're that well liked!

This cheese calendar is one of the most highly coveted items every year. You'll see people making a run to the back of the store where the cheeses are – and this cheese advent calendar is what they are after! Each calendar has 24 festive mini cheeses in it (and some of them are specialty cheeses!).

Advent Calendars Releasing after the initial November 2 Date:
While Aldi typically releases ALL of their advent calendars together on one day, we did notice that there are a few special releases later into the season. Some of these we don't have preview pictures for, but I'm sure they're going to be perfect ones to grab too!
12 Days of Socks or Surprises – $12.99 – Available November 23, 2022
Merry Moments Ladies Advent Calendar Sock and Surprise Set – $18.99 – Available November 23, 2022
Hinkler 12 Days of Crafting – $12.99 – Available November 23, 2022
Moser Roth 12 Days of Advent – $5.99 – Available December 7, 2022
This one didn't have a preview picture available, but the Moser Roth chocolates are delicious, so I'm SURE it will be a good one to grab. This would be a fun idea to bring along to Holiday parties as a thank you gift too!
Bee Happy Crafting Calendar – $12.99 – Available December 7, 2022
Note that typically there is a LIMIT 2 on each of these advent calendars. My store originally tried to only allow limit of 2 total, but then clarified that it was a limit of 2 of the same type. Just be aware as you plan your shop!
Has Aldi always had calendars like this?
Aldi has been around since I was young, but they didn't start with advent calendars in store until 2018. Their first calendar was the wine advent calendar, and it has just grown from there each year.
In 2021, they offered a whopping 20 different advent calendars. For 2022, we saw 28 different Aldi Advent Calendars – WOW!
While not all stores carry ALL of the calendars, the cheese advent calendar, dog advent calendar, coffee advent calendar, and chocolates are widely available at most stores.
TIP: Remember that the store will be BUSY the morning of these advent calendar releases. Plan to get to your Aldi early and that you may have crowds!
The cheese advent calendar is typically back with the deli cheeses, while the other Aldi advent calendars are with the Aldi Finds items (or on a nearby end cap).
It's also important to note that most Aldi stores just get one shipment of calendars – so typically what you see is all they have available.
When is the release date for the 2023 Aldi Advent calendar?
We expect the release date for the 2023 advent calendars to be November 1, 2023. We will update for sure once it's confirmed!
Where can I buy Aldi Advent and Holiday Calendars?
The Aldi holiday calendars are ONLY available in store at select Aldi stores. Also note that some items are prohibited by the state you live in (for example, items with alcohol can not be sold in stores in Pennsylvania).
If you get VERY lucky to have an Aldi Instacart shopper picking items up for you in store, they *may* be able to grab you a calendar as well, but this depends heavily on your shopper and the stock that your store has.
- Check out your Aldi online weekly ad over HERE before you shop.
- Aldi requires you to bring your own bags (or you can purchase them for $.06 per bag at the store.)
- You'll need to pay a quarter to use a cart at Aldi. When you return the cart, you'll get the quarter back.
- Aldi does not accept manufacturer coupons (however they have had a few Aldi Store coupons recently in a few local papers.)
- Aldi sale ad varies by store.
