Christmas Hot Chocolate Bombs

These hot cocoa bombs look just like Christmas ornaments—but they’re much tastier. If you didn’t take part in the hot cocoa bomb trend last year, now’s your chance! Just drop ’em in a glass of milk, curl up in your favorite blanket and sip away.

If tea is more your thing, definitely check out these tea bombs.

Glass Christmas Trees

Want something a little different from a traditional Christmas tree? These elegant glass trees with LED lights are just the thing. You can get a pack of 2 and set them up wherever you want to spread some cheer in the house! Don’t forget to check out these other alternative Christmas trees.

Gingerbread Decorating Kit

Christmas is here, and that means gingerbread everything. If you don’t want to make your own gingerbread men cookies, you can always buy this gingerbread decorating kit from Costco, which comes complete with soft, premade spiced cookies and all the fixings you need to make them look fancy. It’s a great Christmas activity for the kids—or the adults.

Turtle Chips

Turtle Chips are actually a Korean snack that have gained popularity in the States. Costco rolled them out at some stores in 2019 and 2020 (looking at you, Texas), and we hope to see them more in 2021. You won’t be able to stop crunching once you open a bag of these chips! They have a layered, puffy texture shaped like a turtle shell, hence the name. If Turtle Chips aren’t at your Costco yet, you can find them on Amazon.

Holiday Cookie Tray

Holiday cookies are so fun to make, but sometimes you just don’t have the time. Well, Costco to the rescue! You can get a whole tray of delicious (and gorgeous) holiday cookies, including powdered brownie walnut, lemon shortbread, iced ginger molasses, coconut almond chocolate and holiday candy cookie.

Sugar Cookie Cashew Butter

Nut butters have been steadily gaining popularity, with people moving away from the traditional peanut butter to alternatives like almond and cashew. This cashew butter brings in the holiday goodness with a decadent sugar cookie flavor, and while it may not be the healthiest option out there, it’s the holidays—indulge a little!

Girl Scout Thin Mint Pretzels

I grew up munching on Girl Scout Thin Mints every year, and they’re definitely hands down my favorite cookie of the lot, even though the Girl Scouts just dropped a new cookie flavor this year. By mixing sweet, salty and minty, the Girl Scouts have outdone themselves here—I definitely need to get my hands on these Thin Mint Pretzels!

Cheese Advent Calendar

If you thought the holidays were just for sweets, this cheese Advent calendar is here to prove you wrong. It’s filled with 12 different kinds of imported European cheese, including a truffle Gouda, Manchego and four different types of cheddar. It also has a handy guide showing you the best pairings for each cheese.

Mayo with Avocado Oil

This has to be one of the best things to buy at Costco. You can grab a 32-ounce jar of this Primal Kitchen Real Mayonnaise with Avocado Oil for only $8.49. It’s certified paleo, keto and Whole30-approved. Spread it on a few loaded avocado BLTs and relax knowing you made a healthy choice.
