To some people daffodils chime the return of warmer weather, for us, it's the return of the Aldi hanging egg chair. Arguably the best garden furniture you can pick up from a supermarket, or at least that's what the Glastonbury-worthy online queues would suggest every time it swings back into stock.
This year Aldi is back with a large double-seater version of its cult hanging egg chair. It is landing back in stock as an online exclusive on the 26th of February. The large egg chair with cover is priced at £344.99, while it's not cheap it is still £200 less than similar hanging chairs from retailers such as The Range.

Perfect for either the garden or the conservatory, Aldi’s Large Hanging Egg Chair ensures shoppers the best seat to enjoy all summer long. The double pod-style chair is suspended from a powder-coated iron frame, to allow a gentle swinging motion for two side by side.
You will need to be quick if you want one, these egg-cellent chairs don’t hang around for long! Last year three different drops of the original Aldi hanging egg chair all sold out in record time with Aldi reporting record sales each time it's in stock.
We also think it's important to note that following news that Aldi will be stopping its online special buys and home delivery, this could be one of the last times you can pick up one of the egg chairs without battling it out in-store.
While Aldi usually has about two to three drops of its most popular products a year, the large Aldi hanging egg chair only came into stock the once last year. So you never know when, or if, it'll be back.
Aldi hanging egg chair
There is currently no information on when or if the smaller Aldi hanging egg chair will be returning to Aldi. Last year it was priced at £189.99, £40 more than in 2021 when it was priced at just £149.99. However, despite the price increase, Aldi’s egg chair was still a fraction of the cost of hanging chairs from other leading homeware retailers.
The next cheapest hanging egg chair we could find was B&M's hanging egg chair priced at £225. While a similar, dare we say almost identical version, at John Lewis & Partners could set you back a whopping £429.
Last year's design features the same rattan design that made it a sellout Aldi special buy in previous years. The powder-coated frame is weather-resistant, however, to further protect your egg chair against the British weather Aldi is selling the egg chair with a zip up cover for £199.99.
'I bought the Aldi egg chair last year, after setting an alarm to wake up at 6am on a Sunday. I kept refreshing the site and was so smug when I managed to nab one,' says Rebecca Knight, Ideal Home's Deputy Digital Editor.
'When it arrived I was really impressed with the quality and how easy it was to put together. My only warning is to make sure you measure that it can easily fit through any doors or fence gaps as it comes in a hefty box.'
