14 Cheap Holiday Decorations From IKEA That Look Super Luxe


The time is nearly here once again to deck your halls for the holiday season. And whether you'll be sprucing up a new space or trimming your longtime home, it's always tempting to go in on some new décor this time of year. In order to satisfy your seasonal shopping craving, stock up on cheap holiday decorations from IKEA that'll give you a glam holiday look for less.

You likely already look to the Swedish home superstore for other decorative and furniture needs – after all, the brand is known for offering up functional and stylish goods for can't-beat prices – so it comes as no surprise that IKEA's holiday décor is no less appealing. The vast majority of the store's festive pieces come in at $25 or under, meaning you can make your home a holiday wonderland without spending a ton.

Not to mention, IKEA's holiday trimmings actually look way more glamorous than their prices would suggest. So whether you'll be entertaining lots of loved ones all winter long, or enjoying nights at home reading by the fire, there are countless elevated picks that'll make the season brighter in your space.

When guests come over for a celebratory meal, create a luxe table scape by incorporating gold finishes and vintage-inspired wares. Pass around hors d'oeuvres on a golden tray during cocktail hour, like IKEA's $19.99 option, then display appetizers or desserts on IKEA's gold three-tiered serving stand, which is $24.99. Place white pillar candles on coordinating gold candle holders, like this $12.99 IKEA piece, to cast a warm glow on the table.

Continue the glam touches into your other living spaces with a metallic planter for poinsettias or other festive greenery. This gold IKEA planter, $14.99, is ideal for entryways or placing on a windowsill. Incorporate more greenery with artificial garland in whatever shade best suits your style – deeper evergreen garlands for a moody look, or a muted garland of eucalyptus greens. Try placing it across an accent table, or fixing the leafy strand above a doorway.

Other standouts from IKEA's festive featured items include pretty wreaths to hang on your front door or in windows, like this artificial wreath for $14.99. The classic wreath is no fuss and not at all cheesy — it provides just the right amount of greenery to display holiday cheer. For those unafraid of straying from tradition, swap a typical wreath for IKEA's star shaped version, $4.99. The gold star wreath features a spray of pretty greenery and white flowers, and is a modern take on holiday décor.

Add some seasonally-appropriate throw pillows to your shopping list as well, like IKEA's deep green velvet cushion, $14.99, and fuzzy cream shearling pillow, $19.99. Place the pillows on your couch for a luxe vibe, and set some candles in a few of these $9.99 lanterns around the room to create a warm, inviting space.

When it comes to holiday trimmings, it's all about making your home feel cheery and bright, while still maintaining a level of style and glamour. No matter your plans this season, stock up on décor from IKEA that does the job for less, below.
