Have you ever wandered the Aldi Finds aisle at your local store and stumbled on one of their collectible gnomes? These talked-about gnomes always get a lot of attention in Reddit subthreads and Aldi Facebook groups. The latest buzz centers around the new $8.99 Valentine’s Day Aldi gnomes that officially hit stores on Wednesday, Jan. 10 (or Sunday, Jan. 7 in some states). But in order to grab one of these collectibles, you’ll have to act fast. Since they don’t restock throughout the week, they’ll likely disappear from Aldi shelves quickly.

Here’s everything we know about the gnomes at Aldi, what the new Valentine’s Day-themed gnomes look like, and how they are cheaper than other retailers.

1. New Valentine’s Day 20-inch gnomes came out on Jan. 10 for $8.99 each.

With the latest batch of Aldi Finds this week, we were pumped to see 20-inch Valentine’s Day-themed gnomes join the collection. These $8.99 gnomes come in a variety of designs. They have a weighted bottom and a bendable wired hat and would be perfect for your mantel.


2. Aldi’s gnomes are 10%+ cheaper than similar ones on Amazon.

Aldi still beats Amazon prices in the gnome category. I looked for similarly sized gnomes on Amazon and couldn’t find many options cheaper than Aldi that weren’t from third-party sellers.

For example, this two-pack of 18-inch gnomes costs $19.99, while you’d pay $17.98 for two of the 20-inch gnomes at Aldi.

3. Summer-themed gnomes came out in early June — for $4.99 or $8.99 each.

Just before summer, Aldi released Americana-themed and summer-themed gnomes in the first week of June. Here’s what you could find:

  • Americana Mini Gnome, $4.99
  • Americana or Summer Gnome, $8.99

4. Fall gnomes arrived on Aug. 23 in two sizes — for $4.99 or $8.99 each.

The larger-sized gnomes ($8.99) are 20 inches tall with a weighted bottom and a bendable wired hat. The smaller mini gnomes ($4.99) are 16 inches tall and can sit on a mantle or tabletop. Here were the designs to choose from:

  • Larger gnomes: Red beard and holding a coffee mug; white beard with fall leaves garland; grey beard and holding a pumpkin
  • Mini gnomes: Red beard with a green hat; white beard with a yellow and black hat; grey beard with a light green hat


5. Halloween-themed mini gnomes came out on Sept. 27 for $4.99 each.

Right before October, Aldi released mini Halloween-themed gnomes. These $4.99 gnomes had dangly legs so you can hang them over a shelf ledge or a mantel.


6. Aldi releases various gnomes throughout the year, based on the season.

Aldi’s collectible gnomes are themed for the season and for different holidays. You’ll find candle gnomes, cookie jar gnomes, and plush gnomes themed for holidays like Valentine’s Day, Halloween, and the Fourth of July.

As for when they come out, expect them to pop up about a month in advance of each holiday or season.


7. People resell the Aldi gnomes on eBay and Amazon for around 66% to 178% more.

I recently looked at the sold items on eBay, and was surprised to see that many 20″ Aldi gnomes from 2023 were being sold for $14.95 – $24.95 each (plus shipping). The retail price is $8.99 for those at Aldi, so that’s a 66% to 178% markup. Definitely opt to buy them in stores when they’re first released so you don’t overpay!
