IKEA’s 2018 Winter collection is almost here, and it’s bringing tons of festive holiday decorations, dinnerware, and more to a big blue store near you.
Every year, the IKEA holiday collection brings affordable, celebratory holiday decorations to IKEA stores around the country, and this year is no different. The IKEA 2018 Winter collection offers bright lights, cheerful tones, and festive wreaths—and all for prices that can fit easily into tight budgets.
Before gift-shopping gets overwhelming (and it’s too cold to head outdoors without a scarf and hat), grab these winter and holiday must-haves from an IKEA store near you. Our favorites are all $30 or less, and they’re available starting in October (that's right—you don't have to wait for Black Friday to get these deals), so you have plenty of time to bring them home before the Christmas rush begins.
STRÅLA LED 5-Arm Candelabra Branch
Bring a balance of fine-dining sophistication and durability to the kids’ table at group dinners with this flame-free, plastic centerpiece option. Outside winter and the holiday season, it could light up a bookshelf or side table in any room.
To buy: $30; ikea.com for stores.
STRÅLA LED Wreath, Battery-Operated, Doves
Skip green wreathes—real or synthetic—this year with this white alternative, which looks a little more sleek than its bushy green cousins and is hardy enough to survive the whole season (even if it takes a tumble from its hook).
To buy: $20; ikea.com for stores.
VINTER 2018 Side Plate
Pull this clockwork plate out for New Year’s Eve—and then keep it out for every semi-fancy meal after. The stoneware plate is one of our absolute favorites from the collection for many reasons, but especially because its black and white coloring means it can be paired with accompanying dishware of any color. Buy one to garnish a floating shelf, or pick up a full set; a set of four will run you less than $20.
To buy: $4; ikea.com for stores.
VINTER 2018 Cushion
One of the easiest ways to update your home décor for a new season is by swapping out throw pillows, and this deep green pillow has both a winter-worthy cover of 100 percent cotton velvet and a holiday-ready abstract leaf print.
To buy: $15; ikea.com for stores.
VINTER 2018 LED Decoration Lighting, Dome
Just try to resist buying dozens of these charming globes to tuck away in corners, on shelves, and on tablescapes. The light is just enough to be purely decorative, while the clear dome (plastic, so you won’t have to worry about potential breakages) will blend in with any pre-existing décor.
