'Tis the season. You're looking for gifts for the family but feeling the effects of inflation. You have a Costco membership, and though you usually use it to stock up on six months' worth of toilet paper, you're wondering if you could maybe find gifts there? There's no way, right? Unless the people on your shopping list want a year's worth of fruit snacks?
You'd be surprised! There are actually some great finds at Costco that the people in your life would be delighted to receive. Here's a look at some of the best gifts Costco offers.
It's got "gift" right in the name, so why would you pass it up? Costco offers a wide array of gift baskets that are sure to satisfy anyone you're shopping for. For example, the Holiday Cheer Tower of Sweets contains Lindot Lindor Chocolate, Yves Thuries Dark Chocolate, mini spice cookies, Tutti Frutti candies and more, all for $29.99.
If you need to buy a lot of gift baskets for your office, there are luxury options to buy 60 of the Godiva Brown & Gold Holiday Gift Towers. These contain tons of Godiva chocolate favorites. However, getting them in bulk will cost you: it's $1,999.99 to get 60 of these towers. But, if that's all it costs to check everyone off your list (for years to come), it might be worth it. These are also a great idea for giving gifts to your entire office, so everyone feels like they got a top tier gift.
