*Elf on the Shelf – $11.99 at BJ’s.


One of the fun things I get to as a blogger is attend events like this one at BJ’s Wholesale.  I did receive some promotional gifts for my attendance and involvement regarding this event; opinions are my own.


So a bunch of us bloggers had the opportunity to hang out with a couple representatives from BJ’s, taste some of their holiday fare and check out the selection of other products out in time for all the holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.


Speaking of  the holidays,  BJ’s closes for Thanksgiving to allow associates to be home with their families; BJ’s starts their Black-Friday sales the week before Black Friday. That means – Black Friday has already begun! Go here to see what each day’s special is.




I really enjoyed the food we got to sample: cheese sticks wrapped in thinly sliced meat, various types of cheese, candies like salted caramels (yum!), sparkling red and white grape juice (I really liked the red) and more.


BJ’s has lots and lots of gift ideas and some great things for hosting. Some of the things that stand out to me are the Living Home Kitchen Triple-Burner Buffet Server with 5 Ply Copper core Pots ($129.99 ) – go here to save $30 on it:


The Tramontina 1.5 AT Stainless Steel Buffet Server  ($29.99), go here to save $10 on it:



Like I said, lots of gifts can be found at BJ’s.




From holiday decor and serving-ware to the food on your table and the gifts under your tree shop Bj’s.
