Rattan garden furniture set dupe
The original: Laura Ashley Arley 3-Seater Garden Lounge Set, Dove Grey (£2835.00).
The Aldi dupe: Gardenline Rattan Coffee Set (£299.99).
Natural furniture has had a major resurgence recently, with cane, wicker, and rattan items trending online. But don't be deterred by the seemingly swift shifts in fashion, because rattan furniture is made to last, not only in structure, but also in style.
We love a rattan effect coffee set for relaxing out in the sun, and this Aldi dupe ticks all the right boxes. With cocoon-shaped seats and comfortable cushions, as well as a decent-sized table for perching a cocktail or a coffee on, you can't go wrong.

Jo Malone candle dupe
The original: Lime Basil & Mandarin Home Candle (£50.00).
The Aldi dupe: Lime, Basil & Mandarin Glass Candle (£3.49).
Jo Malone candles are a coveted luxury item, with the delicate fragrances attracting a huge number of devoted fans. If you're one of them, why not consider Aldi's Hotel Collection as a purse-friendly alternative? Their dupe lime, basil and mandarin candle even comes in a similar decorative glass jar with a silver lid - in fact, from a distance you'd easily mistake it for the real thing!

Graham and Green Mirror Dupe
The original: Sorrento Rattan Wall Mirror (£165.00).
The Aldi dupe: Kirkton House Rattan Mirror (£19.99).
Rattan mirrors are a timeless classic, and you can find them in all variations of shapes and sizes at the minute. We absolutely can't get enough of this Aldi dupe for Graham and Green's circular rattan mirror, and at 51cm across, its nearly as big as the original (70cm). It would look perfect styled in the bedroom alongside a statement rug and a reading chair or footstool.
Nutri-bullet blender dupe
The original: Nutribullet 600 series blender (£69.99).
The dupe: Ambiano bullet blender (£19.99).
A blender is a must have for any modern kitchen, and we love one that allows you to take your smoothie on the go with you. The Nutribullet 600 series is a classic favourite in the culinary world, with different size attachment cups that allow you to make anything from ground spices or breadcrumbs, to smoothies and to soups. This Aldi dupe offers all the benefits at a fraction of the price! Enjoy two different sized blender cups, a screw-top bottle lid, and a no-leak lid for all your blender needs.
Shark steam mop dupe
The original: Shark Klik n’ Flip Manual Steam Mop (£129.99).
The Aldi dupe: Beldray Steam Mop (£29.99).
If you think mopping is the most tedious chore of them all, this steam mop is the answer to all your prayers. A fantastic dupe for the Shark Klik n' Flip steam mop, this Aldi alternative allows you to clean your floors in half the time with minimal effort.

Kitchenaid stand mixer dupe
The original: Kitchenaid Mixer 4.7L (£499.00).
The Aldi dupe: Ambiano Grey Classic Stand Mixer (£49.99).
If you're a keen home baker, you know that no kitchen is complete without a stand mixer. But while Kitchenaid's classic stand mixer will set you back a whopping £499.99, Aldi's lookalike grey stand mixer costs just £44.99! We tested took this model for a test ride and found it to be a great lightweight alternative.
Like the Kitchenaid, it comes with a a stainless steel bowl, a flat beater with a silicone lip, a whisk, and a dough hook, but unlike the Kitchenaid, you also get a splashguard with filling hole! It weighs just 4.5kg, which is less than half the weight of the Kitchenaid, so it's more suited to a smaller household where you might not want to keep it on display all the time.
Although it's not as heavy as the Kitchenaid original, handy suckers keep it locked to the countertop to prevent it from rattling around, so you can pretty much leave it unattended. It is quite a lot louder than the Kitchenaid, but for just 10% of the price, its definitely worth getting your hands on!
Procook frying pan dupe
The original: Procook Professional Granite Frying Pan (£57.00).
The Aldi dupe: Black Marble Effect Frying Pan (£7.99).
A frying pan is an essential piece of kit in any kitchen, but some of them can come with hefty price tags, depending on their size and make. This option by Procook is almost eight times the price of the Kirkton House Aldi dupe … you can thank us later!

Atkin & Thyme footstool dupe
The original: Atkin & Thyme Carnaby Footstool in Blue Velvet (£149.00).
The Aldi dupe: Kirkton House Velvet Footstool (£24.99).
No Instagrammable home is complete without a footstool, and if you're a decor devotee you'll know that velvet and gold accents are particularly in vogue. We're huge fans of Atkin & Thyme's Carnaby footstool, shown above, but at £149 it's a bit steep. For a similar vibe on a budget, check out the Aldi dupe, priced at just £24.99.
The White Company Seychelles hand wash dupe
The original: Seychelles Hand Wash (£13.00)
The Aldi dupe: Paradise hand wash (£1.99).
We can't get enough of The White Company's Seychelles range, which includes candles, lotions and room sprays, as well as an absolutely delectable hand wash, all imbued with the intoxicating tropical scent. So we were thrilled to discover that Aldi's Paradise range hits the same notes of amber, vanilla and bergamot, for an unbeatable £1.99!
Your home deserves those luxury touches, but why bother with the matching price tag when you can enjoy extravagance on a budget with these fabulous Aldi dupes?
