IKEA Christmas – Something For Everyone
Christmas and IKEA are two of my favourite things (no really, this isn’t the first time I’ve written gushing praise about all the things I love at IKEA) so naturally combining the two is simply magical to me. This year I set myself a challenge – that I can find something for EVERYONE at Ikea (or at the very least every age group. If there’s absolutely nothing that appears to you in all of Ikea, then bah-humbug to you!)
Babies don’t really want for much, but still IKEA has a great range of toys for babies. While generally I’d avoid buying soft toys as a gift (because somehow everyone always ends up with way to many of them) my little boy had a little rabbit comfort blanket similar to the IKEA one that he loved as a baby. The ears are just the right size for gripping and the fabric is great for snuggling – so it went everywhere with us. It might be worth buying a couple of them though – just in case it becomes a favourite comforter and needs to be washed or gets lost.
- Rabbit Comfort Blanket – $6.99
- Wooden Baby Gym – $49.99
- Fabric Insect Mobile – $9.99
- Wooden Stacking Rings – $12.99
Toddlers are probably the easiest age group to buy for at IKEA, it was really hard narrowing it down to just a few options.
- Bead Roller coaster – $19.99
- Play Tunnel and Tent – $24.99 for tunnel + $9.99 tent
- Push-along trolley – $29.99
- Toy Hammer and Pegs – $9.99
- Wooden Train Set – $14.99. Plus:
IKEA has a great range of toys and activities to encourage your preschoolers imagination and creativity.
- IKEA play kitchen – $129. Along with all the kitchen accessories:
- Wooden Dolls House – $49.99. It can be used on the floor as any other doll house – or it can be wall mounted
- Art Easel/white board/black board* – $29.99. Of course you’ll need:
I had no idea IKEA had so many games. There are awesome options for busting school holiday boredom with friends.
- Dominoes – $19.99
- Juggling Training Set – $49.99
- Stacking Game – $19.99
- Chess/drughts/ludo/backgammon set – $49.99
I have to admit this age group had me completely stumped and I considered leaving them out, purely because – I don’t really know what teenagers like! But after consulting some friends I discovered there is actually plenty of options that might appeal to teens.
- Wireless Phone Charging Pad – $59 (actually I want one of these!)
- Beach Gear :
- Room Makeover :
Honestly you could buy me practically anything from IKEA and I’d be happy, but favourite things are –
- Wine Glasses – Starting at $5.99 for 6!!! May as well stock up for the holiday season yourself as well.
- Candles – Set of 3 decorated scented candles for $9.99
- Food – Grab a wooden basket ($14.00) to put together a food hamper:
What would be the perfect Christmas gift for you from IKEA?
