Trader Joe's Is Selling a Light-Up Christmas Cactus, and It Comes in a Festive Red Pot

Lights make everything better. Trees, wreaths, rooftops, patios, bookshelves, your dog — chances are, if you decorate it with Christmas lights, it's going to look much cuter. Since Trader Joe's is already a go-to spot for unique holiday items, it's no surprise that the grocery chain thought of something really fun to put lights on: a mini cactus! Yes, this prickly plant is getting a jolly upgrade this season, and for just $8, you can take one home.

Each adorable little cactus plant is covered in glowing white lights and sits snugly inside a bright red pot. It's perfect for your mantel, as a centerpiece on your table, tucked into your bookshelf, or given away as a gift. And since cacti are famously easy to take care of (read: keep alive), then there's a good chance this cute decoration will still be around next year, too. Keep reading to see more of this must-have holiday decoration at Trader Joe's. (Note: just make sure you click through some of the Instagram slides to see the cacti!)
