My DD (20m) got her IKEA kitchen today for various reasons ie going to in laws for Christmas and too big to transport. But just a tip for wrapping halfords do big "wrapping sheets" for bikes so bought one and it was perfect for the kitchen

Ah thanks, amazing what some tile/ marble coloured vinyl and silver paint can do. Sheet also now packed away for future use smile

A large paper tablecloth also works wonders for big presents. We wrapped DS1s car in it one year.

ALemonyPie I never would have thought of a table cloth will remember that one too for the future. The "pimping" of the kitchen was for my dad and I to have some fun together doing it up ( and to make it look better in my living room smile )

Eek, yeah I just chuck a tablecloth or blanket over the big ones. Bonus is that neither of my kids ever recognised them as presents so they opened them last and were very surprised smile

I wrapped ds's biggest present buy putting it inside a Christmas double duvet cover.

I will put the duvet cover, on my bed, in future.

Hope your little one likes her kitchen.

Don't know it would be enough for our large present - netball post! It is in a box folded up. It would be nice to have it assembled so they can use it straight away but not sure whether to hope they don't look in a certain direction (can see whole garden from conservatory) or leave in box.
