The holiday season simply isn’t complete without a trip or two to Target, whether you’re getting everything you need to make your celebrations special or simply need to de-stress by browsing the aisles for a quiet moment of shopping and self-care. If gingerbread houses are high on your holiday tradition list each year, the company has got you covered with what might be the cutest version out there.

Fans of the famous retailer will love the gingerbread version of a Target store ($12.99), a cookie kit that comes complete with everything you need to pay homage to your go-to happy place. Each kit includes pre-baked and ready to eat sugar cookie store pieces, as well as colorful icing and candies to decorate to your heart’s content. Of course, you’ll also find classic Target touches like a vibrant red cart, an employee name tag with room to add your own name, an edible version of Bullseye the dog, and the giant red bollards situated in front of the store doors, which reportedly serve as a barrier to prevent vehicles from accidentally driving into the building.

The cookie kit is perfect for Target lovers of all ages, with plenty of reviewers calling them a fun addition to their family’s holiday traditions. Social media users are loving it, too, with one Twitter user joking that “all other gingerbread houses are cancelled this year.” Naturally, they’re making a splash on TikTok and on Instagram, where decorators are showing off both the building process and their final creations.

Of course, Target also has plenty of other more traditional gingerbread house kits if you want to mix and match or create an entire edible neighborhood. From mini houses to elegant estates and glitter chateaus, there’s sure to be a cookie kit to suit every architectural style in your household.
