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 fall Aldi gnomes that officially hit stores on Wednesday, Aug. 23 (or Sunday, Aug. 20 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 fall-themed gnomes look like, and how much they cost.

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

With the latest batch of Aldi Finds this week, we were pumped to see 16-inch Halloween-themed gnomes join the collection. These $4.99 gnomes have dangly legs so you can hang them over a shelf ledge or a mantel.

Here are the Halloween gnomes (and hedgehogs) to hunt for at your store. Remember, they’ll only remain on shelves while supplies last:


2. Aldi’s mini gnomes are 13% – 50% cheaper than similar ones on Amazon.

Aldi still beats Amazon prices in the gnome category. I looked for similarly sized gnomes on Amazon — the ones with dangly feet so they could sit on a mantle — and couldn’t find many options cheaper than Aldi that weren’t from third-party sellers.

For example, this three-pack of 15.75-inch gnomes costs $16.99, while you’d pay $14.97 for three of the 16-inch gnomes at Aldi.

3. 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 are 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

Here are all the gnome goodies that were released with the Aldi weekly ad for Aug. 23 – 30.


4. 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

TIP: Want to make sure you don’t miss out on a future gnome release? Check the Aldi weekly ad, which comes out every Wednesday and offers a sneak peek of the upcoming limited-release goodies. This will give you a heads-up when you might need to be first in line to hunt for your gnome.


5. 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.


6. 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!
