Your holiday budget could always use a little stretching. And if you’ve already paid up your Costco membership — $60 to $120 a year — and are planning a trip to the warehouse club, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to score holiday goods at bargain rates. In particular, several of Costco’s Kirkland Signature store-branded products offer both quality and savings when it comes to holiday entertaining and gift giving.
“The Kirkland Signature brand is a bargain at Costco, especially for large families or those who enjoy entertaining,” says Courtney Jespersen, a consumer savings expert at NerdWallet. “The brand’s products usually come in large quantities, which provides big value for your buck.”
We’ve already sung the praises of the best Kirkland products to buy year-round, as well as some of the best Kirkland products for retirees. After talking to shopping experts and doing our own research, here are 14 great Kirkland Signature products to stock up on for the holidays.
If you’re not wild about doing a lot of baking for the holidays, reach out to the in-store Kirkland Signature Bakery for some sweet assistance.
If you’re having the family over for a holiday gathering, or you accidentally volunteered to bring something to the office party, check out the custom-made Kirkland Signature half sheet cakes at Costco. You can have one made for you for $18.99.
That’s a decent bargain compared to ordering a half sheet cake from supermarket chain Wegmans. Their half sheet cakes run $34 if you buy one straight from the bakery cold case. Or you can order a custom-made cake online for $39.
