DDs Trader Joes has impossible parking, so she never shops there. Im going to put together a gift bag of nonperishables for her. So far Im thinking:
*chili lime seasoning
*fancy olive oil
*wine (she likes Pinot Grigio, suggestions of label welcome)

What else???

Normally Id browse, but not these days.

Suggestions please....

I agree with the spices mentioned. They also have a Japanese one now, Everything but the Elote, Umami and they have a new Sofrito blend. We enjoy the orange champagne vinegar too. I like having the General Tsou’s bottle around. It brightens up a lot of different fresh foods. The honey roasted sliced almonds are a welcomed crunch on my evening salads.

When I was there yesterday they had a small jar selection pack of different honeys and one of syrups.

ETA they also have some black truffle powder and a black truffle sauce. I have used them in risottos before and they are a nice touch.

I love the oven-baked cheese bites and the dark chocolate caramel with sea salt chocolate bars they have near the registers at mine.

great dry soup mixes? I have not tried any from Trader's but I bet they do. It is so nice to have them on hand for an easy meal especially when there is a nip in the air.

Great gift idea Amiga!

I like their sweet chili sauce for making a stir fry, especially with shrimp.

My favorite non perishable at TJs is their "Masala Simmer Sauce." You can buy similar stuff at other stores, but for some reason I like theirs best. It's near the spaghetti sauce.

I like their Water Crackers and Red Chili Scalloped Crackers. Classic English Muffins, Everything Ciabatta Rolls, Chocolate Covered Wafer Cookies, Nuts About Rosemary Mix, Advent Calendar for Dogs. Wheat Crackers [like Wheat Thins] and Chocolate Covered Sunflower Seeds. Not sure if you want to include the fresh teeny, tiny potatoes they have. I like their cheeses too.

Thought of something that's not a dessert (I'm very fond of TJ's desserts )

The garlic naan crackers. Pair them with some baked goat cheese, which is also a TJ fave but not nonperishable.
