I always know what to get my husband for Christmas. He'd be happy with a new game for his console. The thing I do struggle with is buying all the little extras. The stocking fillers and smaller items. He never tells me what he wants and so I usually end up just buying chocolate (I love chocolate, who doesn't?) and then I get to share it with him. He's the same with me. He knows that I like perfumes and anything to do with my computer but other than that, he struggles too.
This week we have had some help in the form of Aldi. They have sent us a hamper of items from their Christmas range. All items perfect for mum & dad for those little extra presents. Those things that we always forget about but that everyone needs.
It was like Christmas had come early when we opened up the box. Items for both of us that we actually needed too. We received:
Matching men's and ladies luxury leather gloves. These come in at £6.99 for the ladies and £9.99 for the men's and I personally love them. I much prefer leather gloves as they are warmer than standard gloves and also are waterproof against the elements so when the snow comes we can build snowmen and have snowball fights without getting freezing cold and wet hands.
A pack of socks each. My husband received a pack of 5 novelty socks which come in at £4.99 and I got a pack of 2 character socks priced at £2.59. Socks are always a great stocking filler as it is something that everyone needs. My husband loves his socks and the creepy faces that are on the front of them. He is a big kid at heart really!
Then my husband was lucky to receive a lovely burgundy dressing gown costing £9.99. It is a great fit for him and is really snuggly and warm. We have even found the boys running away with it and watching television under it to get them warm .
I then got a pair of Ladies Sherpa Fleece Booties which come in at £3.99. I was glad to have received these as I had actually been looking in to buying a pair of these recently and the price is also so appealing to me. They are very thick and warm and the fleece is really comfortable too.
Last up, we both received a little tipple each. An Irish Coffee set which you just microwaved for 45 seconds, left to sit for a minute and then enjoyed as it warmed you up and a bottle of Rosy Nosey Christmas ale which, although my husband doesn't drink ale, my dad loved and has actually been up to Aldi since to try and purchase more.
It's amazing what stocking fillers you can buy whilst you are doing you weekly shop at Aldi and at bargain prices too. All of these items are in store from tomorrow so make sure you get there as soon as possible so that you don;t miss out on a bargain!
