Is it even the holidays without a bowl of roasted nuts? A 2.5-pound jar of Kirkland Signature Mixed Nuts retails for $21.50—far less expensive per ounce than the going rate for deluxe nuts.

2

Beer, Wine, and Spirits

Stock up on Kirkland Signature Bourbon and Rum for your Christmas Day eggnog, or a massive variety of wine and beer for festive holiday soirees all season long. Costco even carries a Kirkland Signature Prosecco, perfect for ringing in the New Year.

Gift Cards

For everyone on your nice list, Costco carries restaurant gift cards that are typically discounted by 20 percent. You can even pick up a 10-pack of movie theater gift cards for $8.50 per ticket.

Belgian Chocolates

Is there anything more festive than a tin of European cookies, biscuits, and candies? Whether you need a little something for the hostess or could use a treat for yourself, a box of 48 Kirkland Signature Luxury Belgian Chocolates costs just $15 at Costco.

5

Luggage

If you're traveling for the holidays (or in need of a gift for a frequent flyer), The Kirkland Signature Softside Spinner 22-inch Carry-On Luggage is on sale for $100—a steal compared to luggage prices elsewhere.

6

Coffee

If you’re hosting a full house for the holidays, you’ll want to buy coffee in bulk. Pick up a 3 lb. bag of Kirkland Signature Colombian Supremo whole bean coffee for $18.



7

Toys

If you’re looking for a great deal on this season’s top toys, check Costco first. Order the four-foot-tall KidKraft Bella Dollhouse and XBOX online with your member card, or venture in to see if your neighborhood Costco is one of the lucky stores stocked with American Girl Dolls. Happy holidays and happy savings!
