I absolutely love the holiday season – especially because it gives me the chance to not only attend a fair few of holiday parties, but also because I get to host a few myself. My favorite place to go to pick up some holiday essentials is Duane Reade. While I shop there all year ’round, it’s always fun to stop in during the holiday season because not only do they have great everyday items, Duane Reade’s seasonal holiday items are amazing!
I love the deLish line of foods, their frozen selection is perfect for throwing a holiday party. They don’t require any prep time, are fast, and dependably delcious! My favorites are the Spanakopita and their Spinach & Artichoke Cheese Dip – which I’ve only discovered after trying their ready to eat version which is equally delicious.
Speaking of ready-to-eat, Duane Reade also offers a wide range of fresh prepped food in many of their stores. I love looking over their offerings because they have a lot of great options if your throwing a party or just want to grab something to bring to a party.
I love browsing their Christmas items – things like this NYC themed Santa hat are right up my alley! I really love that about Duane Reade though, that you can buy really cool NYC themed things from them. I love to rep my city, and even have little NYC ornaments that I put up on my tree so I was excited to see that they have things like this in stock.
I had a small party with family and a few friends, and I have already gotten a few people as in love with the deLish Spinach & Artichoke dip as I am – nobody believed that it came from Duane Reade! I have a couple more events that I’m hosting and I definitely plan on serving it again!
