But when it comes to shopping at Ikea, it is very easy to not only get lost but also fill your cart with things you think you may need for every room in your home very quickly. Ikea has had the retail success it has for a reason, and that’s why we created a list of must-buy items when shopping at Ikea.

Wine Glasses

Wine glasses can be pricey, but Ikea is the place to stock up. Whether you’re looking for a set of glasses or to purchase a few different types or sizes of wine glasses, Ikea has you covered. Take a look at their SVALKA pack of six wine glasses, the classic wine glass for any occasion for only $4.99.

Gift Wrapping

If you haven’t visited Ikea’s gift-wrapping section yet, make sure to do so on your next visit, as this is one of Ikea’s best-kept secrets. All of their gift-wrapping items, from tape and paper to tissue come in bulk at (dare we say) a more reasonable price than the dollar store!

Dish Brushes

When it comes to cleaning products, it’s no surprise how quickly you can go through them. That’s why Ikea keeps it simple with low priced cleaning items like dish brushes to make sure you get all the scrubbing you need without having to pay a fortune for the products. Check out a few of Ikea’s other cleaning accessories like garbage bags and sponges here.


Ikea makes it easy to keep your closet organized, and no, we’re not talking about any of their closet storage items or wardrobes. Whether you like wooden hangers or plastic hangers, Ikea has them in packs of ten for only $1.99 or eight for $5.99.


Decorative tea lights are used more often than you would think, especially when it comes to DIY (do it yourself) projects around the holidays or for special occasions such as weddings. That’s why Ikea tea lights are one of Ikeas best-known value products. Who doesn’t want 100 unscented tea lights for only $4.99? It’s not just tea lights, but take a look at all of Ikea’s candles as they have all sizes for a great price.

Picture Frames

Picture frames can be pricey, especially if you like to have a lot of photos throughout your home. Another thing Ikea has done right in creating their products is making them versatile. For example, the RIBBA picture is only $2.49 but can also be used for hanging or standing, both horizontally and vertically.

When it comes to shopping, we’ve given you numerous resources on how to reign in your spending, especially when it comes to impulse purchases. And it is no surprise that Ikea is one of those stores where your impulse purchasing can be tested.
