Take Your Trader Joe’s Gifts to the Next Level
The Trader Joe’s Bath Fizzers make an excellent hostess gift or stocking stuffer. Each box contains four individually wrapped bath bombs in scents such as Floral Fantasy, Rosemary, Sweet Pea Apple and Rose Petal. The set of four retails in store for $7. but you can also find them on Amazon with a slight mark up.
Seriously, don’t buy these from Amazon because the mark up is ridiculous. However, we’re linking here for those who might not be local to a Trader Joe’s store. All links are affiliate.
Need to fill stockings this holiday? We love the Trader Joe’s Lip Treatment Duo which retails for $4. Both the scrub and balm contain jojoba oil, shea butter and macadamia oil. These also make a great advent calendar filler or include them with a grab bag of beauty products like the Body Butter, Hydrating Sheet Masks and Rose Oil Hand Cream all from Trader Joe’s.
Here’s where we take an ordinary gift to an extraordinary thoughtful gift: the Trader Joe’s Macaron Soaps are so adorable and smell amazing! Each cookie shaped soap is wrapped individually and you can throw them in a stocking or wrap all three up with a pretty soap dish from Target or HomeGoods. Anyone who loves scents like lavender honey, raspberry and mint will love these soap. Retails for $8 in store but also found on Amazon.
Jams and jellies kind of just go with the holidays, don’t you think? We love the trio of Spirited Fruit Spreads and think they would make a fantastic hostess, teacher or neighbor gift! Wrap up a jar with a scone mix and slap a bow on it. Or, bake a batch of muffins or croissants and package those pastries with the jam and call it a breakfast basket. There are so many gift ideas but best of all, you can get three gifts from one package. $8 in stores.
We love the bath fizzers but say you’ve got shower takers instead. The Trader Joe’s Exfoliating Body Scrub Trio in Brown Sugar, Citrus and Green Tea are a fantastic alternative! Throw these in a stocking or package them up with a loofa or body brush and you have a great gift for anyone who likes to take care of their skin. $8 in store.
And finally, you’ll find the Trader Joe’s Chocolate Covered Pretzel Twists with the rest of the candy. These are not only gorgeous but also taste amazing. I thought the box alone was pretty on its own but Megan suggested to plate these on a festive plate found from Target, HomeGoods or even the Dollar Tree. 24 pretzels for $7 in store or on Amazon.
