As the cold winter months continue to drag on, you may be wishing for sunnier days and springtime flowers. Luckily, wholesale superstore Costco has your back (in more ways than one) whether it’s with sweet desserts, stunning home finds, or functional kitchenware. And just in this month, the bulk retailer is starting to roll out the spring decor, including one product that has us feeling especially excited for the solstice. 

Social media users have spotted Costco selling Bloomaker’s Tulip Bulbs for $16.99 each — and Instagrammer even found ones that come in a glass vase and an adorable woven wooden basket. Tulips are not only stunning, but they’re also a quintessential marker of springtime. While a standard bouquet typically has a shorter lifespan, Bloomaker products use hydroponics to help the tulips grow naturally, meaning the bulbs sit in a watery nutrient-dense liquid instead of soil.

Users on Reddit can’t get enough of the bundle, highlighting how satisfying it is to watch your own plants come to life, whether it’s in a home office or on a kitchen counter. One user even suggests letting the bulbs dry out completely once the flowers are done blooming to reuse the next year. It’s the gift that keeps on giving! (It’s similar to this hot-ticket tulip bulb pack going for $7.99 at Aldi.)

“I’ve bought these every year for the past 3 years. They’re great,” said one reviewer. Others note that they’re not only gorgeous, but they’re also a steal with as many as 10 bulbs in the vase for under $20.

What’s more? Once the tulip bulbs have served their purpose for the season, you can reuse the woven basket and glass vase for adorable decor or storage. Throw in some small kitchen tools or notepads and pens, or add some faux greenery for a timeless DIY centerpiece.

You may want to give your local Costco a call before you head over there to make sure they’re in stock, but you’ll definitely want to grab a few of these while you can before the season is over!

Love these Tulip Bulbs? Then You’ll Also Love …

If you don’t have a Costco membership (or the item is sold-out at your local store), Amazon is selling this set of five pre-chilled tulip bulbs for only $10.95, plus a clear glass cylinder vase and mini wicker baskets you can reuse for Easter or as unique functional kitchen storage. The bulbs are ready to grow and, like Costco’s, can be grown indoors. Good thing Punxsutawney Phil said spring is near!
