The festive season is drawing ever closer and many of us already have our presents wrapped and our advent calendars on standby.

And few supermarkets do the latter better than low-cost chain Aldi. We’ve already been dazzled by their stunning and mega affordable beauty advent calendar, and now they’re throwing a boozy offering into the mix.

Gin fans get those lime slices and bottles of tonic at the ready as the supermarket has come up with something you’ll really enjoy – gin Christmas crackers.

Forget winning the world’s tiniest notepad or a plastic ring, these crackers put a grown-up spin on the festive tradition. It’s a pack of six crackers, each containing a gin mini for you to enjoy at the dinner table while you tuck into your turkey.

Coming in at a very reasonable £19.99, they’ll be available online from November 9th, and in stores from November 14th.

And if gin really is your thing, Aldi are also releasing a 12 Gins of Christmas set, a twelve-day countdown with a specially selected gin behind every door. From Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin to Tanqueray Dry Gin, there’s something for everyone. Plus, each window comes with its own tonic.

Yes gin-related Christmas dreams really do come true and at a price we can all raise a glass to!

The gin set could be yours for just £34.99, and will also be available online from November 9th, and in stores from November 14th.

We’re certain these will sell out in absolutely no time, so we’d make a note of the dates if we were you.

We’ll be declaring it Merry gin-mas in less than 48 hours – now all that’s left to do is invite the girls round for a gin themed night in!
