It’s rare to see kitchen supplies at Trader Joe’s, but when they do arrive in the fall, fans snatch them up. Among one of the most popular seasonal kitchen items is the olive wood cutting and serving board, which returned to stores in October. After receiving the cutting board as a gift, one fan says that they “love” it. And at $24.99, it won't break the bank.

5. Do-It-Yourself Trader Joe’s Gift Bags

Price: varies

If you want to get creative, make your own gift bag full of Trader Joe’s goodies using one of the store’s reusable totes. The idea comes from a Redditor who gives their kids a stuffed bag every year. “I get things I know they'll enjoy but wouldn't normally add to their own grocery cart,” they write. The best part? You won’t have to wrap anything.

(Some shoppers have also pointed out that Trader Joe's coveted mini tote bags — which could make for a fun stocking stuffer or ornament — are appearing in stores once again.)

6. Dark Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans

Another go-to stocking stuffer: Trader Joe’s chocolate espresso beans, which accommodate a variety of diets, as they’re dairy- and nut-free.
