When does Ikea stock Christmas stuff?

Last year I got lots of lovely Christmas wrap and bits from Ikea for really good prices. Does anyone know when they start Christmas wrap? Had a look at the paper shop bit of the website but can't see anything yet.

IIRC it was late September last year at our IKEA (Gateshead)

Thanks! I was in today but no sign of them yet. Although by the time we had reached the paper shop DH was ready to give up so I had to do a mad eye dash round it as he got me on the main path.

I loved the Christmas stuff last year!! So lovely.

I know it's a zombie thread, but this is the question I want to ask about 2016. They have their wrapping paper to view online, when is it available to buy in shops? I always leave it too late, and want to get some asap

(IKEA Croydon co-worker) We've had deliveries of Christmas stuff in already although I'm not sure exactly what's come in . IIRC it'll be going out from Monday but the Christmas Shop itself will probably be built over the next week or so. I'm not working this weekend otherwise I'd go and ask specifics smile

Christmas wrapping paper and decorations are out in the Gateshead Ikea.

They have all their Christmas stuff online... Their store check is unavailable right now so can't check my local one

Following to see if anyone reports back from lakeside....

The same, can see it all online but store stock check doesn't work for the Christmas stuff. Maybe I need to give it a week before making the trip

There was nothing in wednesbury on Wednesday.

My local IKEA is lakeside. I'm thinking of holding off until next weekend, it sounds like hopefully it'll all be fully set up and available then (and hopefully the best wrapping paper won't all have sold out like it did very swiftly last year...!)

mrsdemetri we need you to ask specifics tomorrow! And to find out if it's the same for every store. I need the wrapping paper!

I'm after Southampton...

Well we had people in overnight last night to build our 'Winter Wonderland' (that's what it's called, there's a big sign and everything, it's all very swish) so there's definitely stuff out. I saw paper, and trees and decorations but I think there's more to come in - I was looking at it at 8am, so still being built and a little bit gappy. It was a bit too busy after we opened to be able to mooch back down and have another look.

I'd imagine all UK stores have a target of this week to put in their Christmas shop - most big things are co-ordinated.

They've got a LOT of stuff on the website now and it looks lovely

I was in Lakeside last week they had just started building the Christmas section so maybe it's all there now

We've built our winter wonderland in Leeds store. Some stock has arrived but not all.
