Ikea Christmas For Under Ten Bucks
A few days ago, my husband and I popped into Ikea. We're lucky enough to have a store about a half an hour from our home and every now and then, when we're out that way, we wander inside.

It's been a long time since we've gone there in search of something specific. I love their furniture, and actually have a lot of it, we just don't need anything big anymore.

No room.

So we rarely go through the showroom maze.

The marketplace is our favorite area to browse. We start there. Well, I start there, my husband starts with one of the dollar ice cream cones.

Anyway, on this particular trip, I was overwhelmed by all the really cute Christmas decor. I mean there was a lot of it.

One adorable piece after another. I was very distracted...so much so that my husband had a second cone.

I'd never been to Ikea so close to the holidays before. I've been there after and picked up a package of clearance tags, but I honestly never knew they had such an extensive line of holiday decor.

I was totally floored. So, being a good neighbor, I snapped some pictures to show you, in case you didn't know either, especially since it was all so reasonable.

Keep in mind, this is not a sponsored post, nor am I an affiliate for Ikea, I just thought it would be fun to share.

So let's take a peek, shall we?

Their Christmas Collection is called Vinterfest and it includes dinnerware, wrapping, decor, ornaments, trees, wreaths, candles, cooking and baking items...too many things to list and to be honest, I could've gone crazy, but I decided to focus on these ten.

They're basic pieces, but fun.

Like a traditional boxwood wreath for 9.99. Wow, I've never seen them so cheap. Plus, the great thing about boxwood is it can be used at anytime of the year. Just swap out your bow or picks and you're set. Fabulous.

Ikea Boxwood Wreath

Okay, now this one's strictly for you folks, since we all know, I'm not a huge fan of the half wreath, but for $4.99, I had to include it. I mean, it could be very pretty with the right dressing. I guess...anyway, it's trending and again, cheap.

Half Wreath Ikea

Another popular trend this year is the gnome. They're everywhere. I saw this one in two sizes, the smaller one was just under ten bucks. That's a price you can feel good about even when gnome fever dies down.

Ikea Gnomes

Trees are traditional holiday fare and Ikea has many. These tinies ($1.99 each) or this trio of bottle brush babies ($3.99) would look perfect with any holiday decor style. I could've filled my entire wagon with trees alone and walked out a happy shopper.
Christmas Ikea Faux Trees.
Of course, I'd have to leave room for the faux flowers...in red and white. Come on, plants I can't kill during the most wonderful time of the year? Priceless. I mean let's face it, nothing's more depressing than a dead plant at Christmas.

Holiday Buckets Ikea

Buckets have endless uses, especially around the holidays and for $7.99, I don't have to decide between the traditional galvanized look and the red one that pulls at my holiday heart strings. Totally worth the investment and just the right size to hold gifts, ornaments, a small evergreen or reindeer food. Carrots anyone?

Red And White Wrapping Paper Ikea

I've always made the wrapping under the tree part of my Christmas decor. Each year, I choose a different pattern (or make my own) that fits my theme.

Rustic, glam, whimsical, traditional or kitschy, I've done it all, but red and white are classic and this $3.99 roll was huge. Perfect for those big square boxes or unusual shaped presents from the big guy. Ho Ho Ho.

Ikea Star Luminaries

A few seasons ago, I found red star luminaries at a discount store and hung them on my fireplace. They look outstanding in the room and when I saw these white ones for $5.99, I had to have more. You can never have too much twinkle.

Ikea Star Lamp

That's why this star lamp ($9.99) also caught my eye. Plus, it's another one of those items that won't look out of place in March or May. You can keep it out all year long. How darling would it be in a kid's room?

Ikea Tea Light Houses

And how sweet would these little white tea light houses ($5.99) be in that same room? Obviously without the candle. I don't use real candles anyway. I use the battery operated tea lights, they're safer, but just as effective. A tiny sparkling village all ready for Santa.




Just like me.

Yes, yes, we still have to get through Thanksgiving, I'm not rushing it, but I wanted to share this now in case any of you were thinking about shopping over the weekend. Like I said, so many things and all of them at such good prices.

Oh and I wanted to note that all the items I featured today are available on their website, so if you don't have an Ikea nearby, you won't be out in the cold.

You can't, however, get the dollar ice cream online.

Thank goodness.

Or there'd be no reason for my husband to come to the store.

Are you an Ikea shopper?

  1. Kim you are my kind of shopper. I too like things that are not too expensive. I am one of those that likes lots of things in the house for the holidays so the cheaper the better. I have been slowly taking out my decor and planning it out in stages. The tree is up with just lights and it looks so cozy at night without the full on Christmas effect.

    1. Right here with you, Mary! I swoon over all the gorgeous holiday decor in the high end catalogs - even in the so called "bargain" store ones - but I rarely buy. I have so much stuff already and to spend $20 or $30 on some item I'll display for a few weeks isn't my style. This is more my speed...enjoy those lights! You inspired me to put some up in the kitchen this week.

  2. It’s been several years since I’ve visited IKEA and never before the holidays. You have my curiosity in a tizzy.

  3. Can you believe I've never been in an IKEA? We don't have one that's really close not that it's too far. It's located where tons of traffic is a nightmare. We have enough stores near us to shop cute pieces like you saw. Home Goods is 2 miles from us.

    Boxwood is the best exactly for the reason you said, they can be used anytime.

  6. Kim, this post made me know that I have to assert myself! The closest Ikea to us is about 2 hours away. We always pass it on the way to visit the kids and I always ask (whine) that we should stop, but there never is enough time. I love Ikea for all that little "fun" stuff that they have and now I think I will have to put on the charm and go for a ride..Happy Weekend..xxoJudy

    1. I know, Ikeas are sporadically placed, and gosh, we have several nearby, but they are fun to pop into every now and then.

  8. Well, we don't have one either in good ole Alabama. The nearest one is 3 hrs away (Atlanta) & I've never been there either. I must admit however that I like your picks, even though I have way too much Christmas stuff already, LOL.

  9. I have never been in an Ikea, but they sure have great Christmas stuff - not that I need more! Right now I don't have room for the decorations I have. My husband better follow-through on his threat to get me a bigger house! lol

    1. I still have full buckets of things that I didn't even bother to unpack this year. I don't need anymore either, but it's always fun to peek!

  10. Ikea is a good two hours away for us. I have recently visited to help Sam furnish his apartment. I do like that they are on line as well, and you can get free shipping. Thank you for sharing the Christmas items. I like much of what you shared. :-)

  11. I think I would be scared if there was an Ikea near me!!!! I love those star lights....I saw one recently somewhere online (already forgot where!!) and I was very tempted...but I resisted.

    1. They were very hard to resist Debbie...very hard. If I didn't already have a few in red I wouldn't have had the willpower. At least now I know where to get more if my go bye bye!

    1. I's say I'm a pass on about 80% of Ikea items, but there are a lot of things I do like and those star luminaries are on the top of my list, too, Stacy!
