The Best Stocking Stuffers to Get at Trader Joe’s
The average holiday stocking is (quite literally) a mixed bag, and I would argue that the key to their magic is excessive randomness. You can probably guess what I’m about to say, but here goes anyway: The best place to buy random, stocking-sized, delightful things is Trader Joe’s!
More so than your average supermarket, TJ’s is stocked with all sorts of cult-favorites, trinket-sized candies, and even gift-y self-care products that someone on your list would be overjoyed to receive. (Trust, us, even though you picked these up on your weekly grocery haul, these picks won’t look like an afterthought.)
We rounded up a list of the very best stocking stuffers that your neighborhood Trader Joe’s has to offer. Now get stuffing!
1. Chocolate Passport, $10
I found these gorgeous single-origin chocolate bar sets in the checkout aisle, and decided to turn this impulse purchase into the best holiday present that $10 can buy. It would also obviously be great in a stocking!
2. Peppermint Bark Popcorn, $3
If you know someone with a sweet tooth to rival that of the reindeer on this packaging, this caramel popcorn coated in dark chocolate and then white chocolate and dusted with peppermint is a good choice! Maybe throw in a toothbrush too?
3. Everything Bagel Seasoning, $3
Arguably, no single TJ’s product has a greater cult following than this little jar of Everything Bagel Seasoning. This is for that one person who you know will sprinkle the good stuff over EVERYTHING.
4. Body Butter Trio, $8
My most favorite stockings of my youth had some form of self-care products nestled within. And who knew TJ’s had you covered on those goodies too? This body butter set includes Almond Honey, Lemon Verbena, and Frosted Berry, which smell good enough to eat. Put the whole set in a stocking or break up the pieces among each one hanging on your fireplace.
5. Macaron Soap, $5
You read it on this price tag first — these soaps make “a great stocking stuffer.” I rest my case!
6. Green Tea Infused Mints, $2
These pocket-sized green tea-infused mints have a little bit of that quirky Trader Joe’s flair that we all know and love. Bonus: They’re only $2 a tin.
7. Scandinavian Tidings, $3
GOOD TIDINGS WE BRING TO YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS … in the form of star-shaped gummy candy from Trader Joe’s!
8. Exfoliating Body Scrub, $8
These yummy flavors (brown sugar, citrus, and green tea) come in equally yummy-looking packaging. Again, you’re gonna want to open up the package and slip an individual scrub into three different stockings. Three birds with one stone!
9. Face Sheet Masks, $2
These sheet masks were the most buzzed-about non-food TJ’s item from the past year, and for good reason: The soothing treats are the perfect price for a small-yet-thoughtful present.
10. Waxed Cotton Food Wraps, $9
Give your eco-friendly loved one the gift of these handy, reusable food wraps. Each set contains three of varying sizes and cover various-shaped things … like holiday dinner leftovers perhaps?
