In our family, a trip to Ikea needs to be announced one week in advance so that everyone can peruse the website and "place an order." We all love their clean lines and high value. If only the closest store weren't over an hour away!
* Reasonably-priced slipcovered furniture -- both easy to change looks for seasons, etc., and great with kids.
* rugs and pillows at prices that are very reasonable.
* kitchen ware that has style and a low price -- They regularly have big wooden salad bowls for $8!
* wrapping paper that's bright, bold and cheap.
