With the right ingredients, every day can feel like a holiday, especially if you know what to stock up on. Some seasonal staples have a longer shelf-life than you might expect. We think it's worth adding an extra one or two to your cart, so you can celebrate whenever you're craving some holiday cheer. All of the products below are available for Walmart Online Grocery Pickup, so you can load your cart anytime, anywhere and pick up your groceries in-store whenever it's most convenient for you.

While you can find many citrus fruits year-round, they're in season (and tastiest) during the winter months. Clementines are great for school lunch or as a healthy snack in between all those Christmas cookies.

Fresh cranberries are plentiful during the holiday season. String them with popcorn to trim your Christmas tree or make a homemade cranberry sauce one last time before the festivities are over.

Fresh pomegranate season is technically September to November, but you can still find this fruit at grocery stores in December. Stock up, as fresh pomegranates can last in the fridge up to two months.

Any fan of these chocolate-covered cookies knows they can be hard to find at certain points during the year. That's because they're seasonally available from September through March — don't miss 'em!

Pecans are everywhere during the holiday months. These cinnamon and sugar-flavored nuts are ideal for snacking while you bake.

Sure, you don't usually make stuffing year-round, but if you have a hankering for it come January, you'll be happy you snagged a second bag during the holidays. These cubes can be hard to track down once the new year rolls around.

For many, Christmas marks the last time to make a pumpkin pie before cans of it disappear until next fall. Stack a few of these cans in your cart in case a craving for pumpkin-anything comes your way throughout the year.

Peppermint is a truly seasonal flavor and these mini candy canes are scarce outside of the holiday season. If you love the taste of peppermint and want a treat after the new year, we suggest a box or two of these guys.

Like canned pumpkin, pre-made pumpkin pie spice can also be hard to come by once the holidays come to a close. Luckily, jarred spices can last a couple of years in a cabinet, so this jar will last you until next Thanksgiving.

If you love the taste and smell of warming spices like nutmeg, cinnamon and clove with your coffee when it's cold outside, we suggest snagging a few bags of winter blend coffee before it's sold out for the season.
