The holidays is that special time of year when I like to be on the ready for family and friends to show up at my doorstep. Whether it’s just for coffee or for a fully prepared meal, I love putting out an assortment of food to snack on when I have a guest to entertain. I was able to find some yummy treats when I was shopping at Walgreens for some creative gifts and stocking stuffers for JP last week.
Over the weekend, we had a huge ice storm and we couldn’t go anywhere… Here in Dallas when winter weather strikes, then entire city shuts down! Without a whole lot to do, we did actually have our neighbors over while they waited for power to restore at their house. My Walgreens assortment of premium snacks by Good & Delish were a huge hit – especially these incredible chocolate truffles!
It didn’t stop there – I really couldn’t decide when I was at the store, so I decided to buy a few things to stock up on and have around the house for my drop-in guests. I’m so glad I prepared, because I really did need it! These holiday cookies were a great value for what they are – I think I paid 2/5$ (with my balance rewards card). They looked so pretty lined up on my christmas platter with the sprinkled snowman cookies by Good & Delish!
Of course, I can’t forget the yummy peppermint candy coated pretzel rods! They even come individually wrapped, so I thought they would make excellent stocking stuffers as last minute christmas gifts.
So what are your plans for accommodating your drop in guests this season? Do you buy treats or do you get by with homemade treats?
Be sure to visit your local Walgreens this season for purchasing your holiday snacks because there’s so many advantages to using your Walgreens balance rewards card! Even if you forget your card or lost it, you can always key in your phone number at checkout! I love it!!
