Get a lot of bang for your buck

Ikea has more than just low cost furniture. Ikea now covers a huge range of items, from luggage to toys, making it easy to find the perfect gift at very affordable prices.

Firstly, what to give the person with everything. What about some Christmas decorations? Not wanting to impinge on their storage, consider these two flat packed (of course, it's Ikea!) Christmas trees. The first is cardboard, with holes to hang decorations, for a mere $24.95.

The other option, even easier to store, and only $12.99 is the glow in the dark Christmas tree wall hanging. Looks great and takes up no space at all.

Got someone keen to start a new hobby? What about sewing? You can get a good starter sewing machine for just $79. There's also plenty of material to chose from too.

If you're shopping for little people, then there are plenty of new low cost toys to consider, and some of the profit goes to charity, so you are helping children around the globe at the same time.

At $1.99, and safe from 0 years up, there are elves and fairies galore. They're the low cost way to cover a plethora of little cousins. The perfect little stocking stuffer - or a cheap way to do the 'Elf on the Shelf' game.

For just a fraction more, at $3.99, these hand puppets won't fail to delight the under 5's. There are dragons and unicorns, and a range of others.

Got a little would-be fairy? You can now get pink fairy wings for $6.99, which also match the little fairy dolls! The matching doll is only $5.99. They also have dress up clothes - elves and mushroom hats, little elf shoes, starting at $3.99.

The ever popular hobby horses are only $9.99, but with a twist - unicorn or strange horned creature.

For $12.99, you can get an adorable Big Bad Wolf and Granny, or a cuddly king. .

Perhaps you're after something a little bigger? Imagination play is always great, but imagine having this little market stall for your play time? Sturdy cardboard, shelves to stack things - a colourful cubby for all that supermarket play, only $19.99..

Thinking about an advent calendar for the kids, but not wanting them to eat chocolate everyday? Ikea has cute Santa advent calendars with draws that you fill yourself, starting at $12.99. Break up a Lego kit so that it's built a little each day or buy little figurines to delight with every drawer that's opened..

Another great gift for those people who you're catching up with over the festive season is simply Christmas decorations - Ikea has a huge range of low cost decorations that make a nice alternative to chocolates or the usual token gifts. There are also tealight lanterns, in a festive red, for only $3.99. A couple of those make a great party gift.

With all these goodies, don't forget the wrapping paper! Knock over your Christmas shopping all at once. Now just enjoy the festive season!
