True IKEA aficionados know their MALM from their HEMNES, can happily eat Swedish meatballs for every meal—and they likely don't need an excuse to fit an IKEA run into a weekend. But for those seeking another reason to devote a lazy afternoon to perusing IKEA's wares (whether in-person or online), it's also a near-limitless source for gifts.

That's right: All those IKEA purchases don't need to be for the home or office. Many items scattered around the store can make great holiday gifts, especially with the addition of a few personal touches. And the best part: they're all affordable. Here are the best IKEA gifts and stocking stuffers to give everyone on your list.

If you're not checking out the food section when you go to IKEA, then you're shopping this Swedish superstore all wrong. The next time you visit in-person (sadly, they don't sell their snacks online yet), pick up some lingonberry jam, sparkling apple & lingonberry drink, ginger thins, and assorted chocolates for friends. (Plus, a pack of frozen meatballs to keep for yourself.) Especially at a time when travel is limited, these stocking stuffers are the next-best alternative to a trip to Scandinavia.
