If you’re like me you’ve been shopping a lot lately. Not just gifts, but for holiday food and baking too. This weekend I checked out our local Meijer. Meijer is a Grand Rapids, Michigan based retailer that operates 199 supercenters and grocery stores through out Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky. Meijer is the pioneer of the “one-stop shopping” concept.
My husband and I had a long talk about stocking stuffers this weekend. It can be pricey to stuff the kids stockings with little things that are quickly forgotten, so we decided to go back to the days of us being kids. So we looked to Meijer for help. Our stockings were stuffed with oranges, nuts, candy and a few little things here and there to make it special.
Our first stop walking in were the oranges. We always had oranges or tangerines in our stockings which were a treat. Next were the nuts and candy. Meijer had excellent prepackaged nuts and candies that are perfect for gift giving or using to stuff those stockings! Lastly is an exciting amount of crafts for the whole family. This is the perfect time to get new stockings and decorate them and Meijer’s has a wide variety of Christmas crafting goodies that will add a personal touch to your home and stocking.
Another family project is holiday baking, and with all the nuts and candy we found at Meijer’s I just had to include it here. The shelves are fully stocked with flour and sugar and all of the basics for baking. And they had everything on the shelf I needed for our stockings and holiday baking. Know someone who needs some help towards their holiday baking or cooking? A Meijer’s gift card can go a long way with helping a family in your area.
One more thing I want to share is Meijer has a Holiday Gift Guide that is amazing. It loads fast, asks a few questions and your well on your way to finding the perfect gift for that someone special.
