Is this the most random home accessory you'll find in the middle aisle at Aldi this week?

We've come to always expect the unexpected in this discount supermarket...

Aldi never fails us, there's always a treat to unearth in the middle aisle. Being pros at shopping Specialbuys we thought there was nothing that could surprise us when it came to Aldi finds. That's until this weekend, when we stumbled across the delicious scented pillows!

Scented candles yes, but scented bedding at Aldi –that's a new one on us. But there you go, this week the supermarket are selling scented pillows.

Talking of pillows: Aldi are bringing back the magic anti-snore pillow of dreams!

In the words of Aldi this quirky pillow can 'help your child drift off to sleep' – that's one way to ensure little ones have sweet dreams! Given it looks as good as it smells,and it really does smell like strawberries, it will add a cute decorative touch to the decor too.

In stores now: Fragranced Strawberry Cushion, £5.99, Aldi

If Strawberries aren't your thing, perhaps you'd prefer the watermelon scented pillow instead. The fruity scented cushion is decorated with stylised graphic illustrations of the popular summer fruit.

This fresh scent is perfect for creating a summer vibe, whatever the season!

Both the strawberry and watermelon scented pillows are machine washable & child friendly.

Who says they are just for kids? If you love the smell of fresh strawberries treat your senses to one of the fruity little numbers. Both designs have already sold out online, but are available in stores now.
