The Best Non-Food Items From Trader Joe’s

Flowers and Plants

I can’t go into TJ’s without leaving with a plant or beautiful bouquet of flowers. They are always so affordable and great quality. I always love picking up a bouquet of tulips. One time I got an orchid from TJ’s that lasted for almost 5 years! It only finally wilted because I left it out on our cold porch too long. Needless to say, you can’t go wrong with flowers or plants from TJ’s! Treat yourself 🙂

Greeting Cards

Another great find at TJ’s is their greeting cards. I always love to stock up on cards for birthdays, weddings, baby showers, anniversaries or even just multi-purpose cards that could be used for any occasion. They are always beautifully made, inexpensive and make for a great addition to any gift!

Coconut Body Butter

The Coconut Body Butter is such a nice luxurious cream for dry skin during the winter and even sunburns during the summer. It is nourishing and keeps skin feeling moist and soft. The coconut smell is both subtle and delicious.

Chhurpi Puffs Dog Treats

The Chhurpi Puffs Dog Treats are another favorite for pups all over. Made from a hard Himalayan cheese that is boiled, hung out to dry and then microwaved to give them their crunchy, savory taste. Your doggies will go wild for these.

Reusable Lavender Dryer Bags

The Reusable Lavender Dryer Bags are a dreamy way to add relaxation and calm to your life. Lavender scented anything adds the instant calming effect and these dryer bags are no different. Throw them in your dryer with your sheets or laundry and you’ll enjoy the benefits for days. We love that they are reusable too.

Shea Butter & Coconut Oil Hair Mask

I got this Shea Butter & Coconut Oil Hair Mask a while back after I had a hair dye job gone wrong. This was so helpful in repairing my dry, damaged hair back to good health. This is such a nice hair treatment to add to your weekly routine. It will keep your hair feeling healthy, strong, shiny and smooth! Try the Shea Butter & Coconut Oil Serum too for help with frizzy hair and to add some extra shine!

Reusable Produce Bags

The plastic bags used for produce in grocery stores always feel so wasteful. These Reusable Produce Bags are a great way to cut back on your plastic use and invest in something that will last you a years to come!

Super Amazing Reusable Kitchen Cloth

I am definitely going to pick up a set of these Super Amazing Reusable Kitchen Cloths the next time I’m at Trader Joe’s. They soak up spills and messes in no time and are multi-purpose for all your cleaning and wiping needs! Not to mention they are reusable and can be thrown in the wash for a refresh.

Zinc Oxide Mineral Sunscreen

It’s SPF 30, and it’s water resistant for up to 80 minutes. It’s also fragrance-free, and includes moisturizing, hydrating ingredients like aloe vera. Seriously what’s not to love about this mineral sunscreen?

Multi-Purpose Cleaner Sedarwood and Sage

We love the Multi-Purpose Cleaner in our household and use it for everything from wiping down countertops, surfaces, spills and more. It has a nice subtle, earthy scent that is refreshing and especially nice if you aren’t into sweet, flowery scents.

The Lavender Salt Scrub

The Lavender Salt Scrub is another luxurious product to enjoy in the bath or shower. Scrub away dry flakey skin to reveal silky, soft skin and smell the beautiful, natural scent of lavender.

Honey Mango Shave Cream

I have been using the Honey Mango Shave Cream for a while now and love everything about it. It leaves my legs feeling soft and smooth and helps prevent razor burn. It also smells delicious. The scent is just enough of a natural mango and honey combo without being too sweet or artificial smelling.

Grapefruit & Lemon Hand Sanitizer Spray

Another great win from TJ’s is the hand sanitizer! The Grapefruit & Lemon Hand Sanitizer Spray is especially nice smelling and a great item to keep in your purse, kitchen and desk!

Liquid Laundry Detergent

We can’t get enough of TJ’s Liquid Laundry Detergent in Free & Clear or Lavender. These detergents are not only eco-friendly, but also excellent at providing a thorough clean and leaving your laundry fresh.

Super Lemon Room Spritz

This Super Lemon Room Spritz is another great item to freshen up any room. The fresh lemon scent smells clean and energizing.

Tomato Leaf Scented Candle

A soy, coconut and beeswax blend, the Tomato Leaf Scented Candle definitely has the internet divided over it’s smell, but we are a fan! We think it has a fresh scent that reminds us of gardening and we are here for it!

Honey Lemon Cough Drops

Still battling those winter colds? These Honey Lemon Cough Drops are just what you need to coat and soothe your sore throat! Try the Cranberry & Herb ones too!

Daily Facial Sunscreen

TJ’s Daily Facial Sunscreen is everything you want and need in a facial sunscreen. It’s translucent, oil-free and leaves your skin looking soft and silky. Say goodbye to greasy, thick, nonabsorbent formulas! Not to mention, it’s so much more affordable than so many other facial sunscreens.

Cleansing and Conditioning Hair Wash

Looking to simplify your beauty routine? Try TJ’s Cleansing and Conditioning Hair Wash for a one stop hair routine. Most 2-in-1 shampoo & conditioners leave your hair either feeling too dry or too oily. This combo leaves the perfect amount of softness and shine to your hair.

Lemongrass Coconut Body Oil

The Lemongrass Coconut Body Oil is a wonderful product to apply after a bath or shower for thirsty, dry skin. The lemongrass scent is lovely and will leave you feeling incredibly smooth and relaxed.

Dry Shampoo

Looking for a non-aerosol dry shampoo? TJ’s has you covered! If you’re in a rush and need to freshen up greasy hair, this Dry Shampoo is a game-changer. It’s a quick and easy fix on the go. Give it a try!

Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream
