Although we still have Thanksgiving to get through, at this point, a lot of people are eagerly gearing up for Christmas. And that makes sense. While Thanksgiving is lovely in its own right, there’s something about a day of gift-giving, pajama-wearing, and family bonding that really warms the soul.
This year, Trader Joe’s is offering up a host of fun products that could make your Christmas celebration (or the weeks leading up to it) even more spectacular. And thanks to the store’s low prices, you won’t have to run up a huge credit card tab to bring these items home.
1. Nuts About Rosemary Mix
There’s something about the flavor of rosemary that elevates a canister of nuts into a holiday delight. This Trader Joe’s mix features almonds, cashews, pecans, and hazelnuts coated with a rosemary and sea salt blend that has just a hint of sugar. Add these to a fruit and cheese board for a Christmas appetizer, or snack on them in between wrapping gifts. You’ll pay $7.99 for a 12-ounce container.
2. Non-Alcoholic Rosé Sparkling Tea
When you’re celebrating a big holiday, it’s nice to have special beverages that are suitable for everyone at the table. So rather than stick to wine and leave your kids out in the process, pick up a bottle of this non-alcoholic sparkling tea, chill it in the fridge, and give everyone a small pour so you can toast to family time. A 750-milliliter bottle costs just $8.99.
3. Cinnamon Swizzle Sticks
There’s something about cinnamon that screams “holidays.” Trader Joe’s is selling a 6.3-ounce box of Cinnamon Swizzle Sticks for $3.99. Stick them in your tea, coffee, hot chocolate, or warmed eggnog to elevate your beverage of choice. Not only do they add just the right hint of cinnamon and sweetness to any drink, but they look pretty, too.
4. Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa Stirring Spoon with Mini Marshmallows
For many people, hot cocoa is a Christmastime staple. You can raise yours to the next level with these nifty stirring spoons. You get an actual spoon with chocolate and mini marshmallow at the tip so that as you dunk and stir, those sweets melt into your hot chocolate for a truly delightful sip. These spoons can easily double as a stocking stuffer, and at just $0.99 apiece, you can splurge and buy each of your kids a few.
5. Gingerbread Ice Cream
The flavor gingerbread is, for many, reminiscent of Christmas. And now, Trader Joe’s has brought it to ice cream. For just $3.79 for a full pint, you’ll get ice cream that features a sweet ginger base sprinkled with bite-size gingersnap cookie bits. It’s a dessert item you can enjoy on its own or atop a warm brownie or blondie.
The nice thing about Trader Joe’s is that it frequently rotates its grocery lineup to align with the season. But if these items sound appealing to you, don’t wait to visit your local Trader Joe’s. Believe it or not, some of these might be gone by mid-December, so this is one situation where you’ll really want to stock up in advance.
