‘Tis the season for holiday parties, and Whole Foods is giving its customers a lot to celebrate! In honor of this most merry time of the year, Whole Foods is hosting a 12 Days Of Cheese promotion that offers one discounted cheese per day for—you guessed it—12 straight days!

This deal sure beats any other kind of Christmas gift. “On the 12th day of Christmas, Whole Foods gave to me … truffle gouda cheese?” Yes, please! This rendition is much preferred to the original, honestly.

While the promotion lasts, you’ll be able to score select cheeses for 50 percent off. There’s an entire list of the offerings for each day, so you can choose to shop deals on your favorite cheeses only or return to Whole Foods for 12 days straight to score all of the discounted cheese-y goodness.

The promotion begins on Dec. 8 and runs until Dec. 19.

According to a press release, Whole Foods had a very specific goal in mind with this promotion. They wanted to give deals on a food that could be great for entertaining, since you’ll be attending plenty of parties this season.

“We have selected a flavorful and diverse set of cheeses for every holiday celebration,” Cathy Strange, Whole Foods Market’s global executive coordinator of specialty and product innovation & development, said in a press release.“We’re thrilled to offer these exciting cheeses at a great value, so customers can enjoy these special items while stretching their dollar.”

Beyond helping you save on cheese, the grocer has taken an extra step to help ensure your holiday parties are the best ever—they had their master sommelier choose a wine pairing to go with each cheese. Each wine retails for less than $20. You can see the full list of cheeses and wine pairings on the Whole Foods website.

Based on the reactions to this special offer online, it’s clear that Whole Foods really is doing its part to make this the best time of the year.

People are flooding Twitter with comments on their love of cheese:

Of course, ’tis the season for holiday shopping (and savings!) So, Whole Foods isn’t the only establishment offering some incredible deals. Macy’s, JCPenney, Target and plenty other retailers are offering up ways to save this season.

Whether you’re stocking up on cheeses or clothing, there’s no going wrong when you’re saving yourself some money while the holidays last. So, be sure to take advantage of these deals while you can!
