Christmas: Holiday Goods at Ikea

I wish¬†there was an Ikea in Kitchener-Waterloo.¬†I miss spending chunks of my days there and browsing the¬†collections with a coffee in hand. I haven’t yet made my way there to see this year’s¬†holiday collection in person (or to stock up on Glogg), but¬†I’m looking forward to doing so in a couple of weeks (if there’s anything still in stock, that is!). For now, I’ve rounded up some of the items that have caught my attention.

The Friday Five: Nutcrackers

I haven’t posted anything about nutcrackers since 2010 even though these men are some of my favourite Christmas decorations. ¬†They can be placed on the mantle in a group, hung on the Christmas tree, or serve as colouring entertainment for the little ones in your family. They’re multi-purpose and they look great too.
