I have been to Ikea. I went to get some eggcups (that they didn’t have), a replacement recycling bin – as mine was stolen from outside the house (that they have changed the design of so now it’s 2 inches taller than the old one and thus doesn’t fit in my cupboard), some metal hangers for Master J (they don’t make them any more) and some material (out of stock). It was a bit of a disastrous mission really until I turned the final corner and saw this …
Mmmmm, lovely lovely wrapping paper. I had entered the Ikea Gift Wrapping section.
Do I need some matching tags to go with that lovely lovely gift wrap?
Yes I do. But what about these number ones?
That also come in white …
but then there’s these picture ones …
With matching stickers.
And how about some Washi Tape
Don’t mind if I do, and to finish it all off, some curly wurly ribbon.
Thank you Ikea my faith in you has been restored.
(In true Ikea fashion nothing here was more than £5. The tags and stickers were 50p-£1, the ribbon £2, the gift wrap £4 and the Washi tape £5 … which is pretty damn good for Washi Tape. I couldn’t find them on the Ikea website so you’ll have to get yourselves down to a store (Top Tip: don’t go on a Bank Holiday, go when there’s some football or other national sporting event on, it’s well quiet then.))
