What you’ll need from your local ShopRite:

ShopRite Imported Sparkling Cider – With its bubbly disposition, cider is an easy festive and celebratory choice for the holidays. You can’t go wrong with it, especially for those who prefer non-alcoholic beverages.

Crème de Brie Spread – Bringing a light pre-dinner cheese for sharing is a delightful way to take some of the pressure off your host to have dinner ready forguests right away. Plus when you’re feeding groups, it’s always easier (and less expensive) when other people pitch in.

Bruschettini Snack Size Italian Toasts – Be sure to pick up crackers, flat breads or mini toasts to pair with your cheese. We like these mini Garlic & Parsley Bruschetta toasts.

Coffee in BoxGhirardelli Holiday Chocolate Squares – Chocolate is generally a crowd favorite and these little assorted squares of holiday goodness are not only delicious, their limited edition seasonal flavors–Pumpkin Spice Caramel, Eggnog and Peppermint Bark—are sure to be conversation starters too!

ShopRite Coffee K-Cups – Coffee and dessert is always a relaxing way to end an evening, so why not bring the ShopRite K-Cups? And if you’re an overnight guest, you’ll save your host from having to make a coffee run the next morning.

The steps:

  1. Get a square gift box with a lid, large enough to fit a bottle of wine.
  1. Fill with crinkle paper or tissue paper if desired.
  1. Place cider diagonally inside the box.
  1. Place cheese and crackers inside the box, one on each side of the cider.
  1. Take K-Cups out of their packaging and place individual cups in the extra spaces around the other items.
  1. Sprinkle chocolate squares throughout the box wherever you see fit.
  1. Close the lid, tie with ribbon or a festive bow, and voila! You’ve just secured your status as best party guest of the season.
