Aldi shoppers rush to buy Christmas must-have for just £8 | The Sun

CHRISTMAS lovers have been rushing to Aldi to pick up an essential item for their festive decor.

The £8 Christmas lanterns from Aldi have proved very popular on social media, with people itching to get their hands on one.

Dozens of Facebook users have flooded the Aldi UK shoppers group with photos of their lanterns.

Admins of the group even had to limit the number of posts about them at one point because there were so many.

The glass lanterns come in three variations, a silver snowflake design and a red or silver reindeer one.

Eager shoppers have been quick to comment on the posts, with one person saying the lanterns are "so beautiful".

"Can't wait for them to arrive!"

You can pick up the lanterns in store or online for £7.99 but if you're ordering online make sure you bear in mind delivery costs.

On the website happy reviewers have described their purchases as "good quality and size"with a "fabulous price".

Both reviewers and members of the Aldi Facebook group have shared their tips on how best to use the lanterns.

Some have opted for fairy lights, some battery operated tealights and some chose regular tealights.

When they are lit up the light shines through the design etched into the side or you can just use it as an ornament.

As always, we do always recommend having a look around for cheaper options to make sure you're getting the most for your money.

After a quick Google we found some alternatives that weren't quite as cheap.

A seller on Etsy has posted a similar looking gold lantern for £9.95 and the Southwood Christmas Shop has one for £14.99.

It's still worth having a look around first to make sure we haven't missed an even better offer – there's never a bad time to bag a bargain.
