ALDI has been working all year to remain one of the cheapest grocery items in the face of inflation, and for the most part it seems to be working—the store gained more than one million new customers in 2022. Thankfully, it manages to maintain those low prices during the holiday season, making it an easy and affordable one-stop shop for some great edible gifts this time of year.

Here are 12 of the most festive budget-friendly finds, including some that aren’t yet in stores so you can plan ahead accordingly.

The Benton’s Holiday Music Tins come in four different colors, each playing a different Christmas song when you open up the top to grab your sweet treat. It comes filled with sugar cookies, but even once those are gone the tin is a nice keepsake to contain holiday cookies of Christmases yet to come. At $6.99 a piece ($5.99 on sale at my local ALDI), you could get the whole collection of tins for under $30.
