But in all honesty, some of cheapest things at IKEA are amazing bargains. Worth every penny.
Browsing the IKEA site, I went weak in the knees for these 25 new IKEA items all priced under $15. (IKEA USA price).
See if you agree?
25 new IKEA items under $15
#1 LERBODA frame, $4.99
This classic style steel picture frame can be used hanging or standing. Love the floating effect without a mat. Get it here.
#2 ROTFJÄRIL cushion cover, $5.99
Does this set your heart a flutter? ROTFJÄRIL cushion cover is made with natural ramie and cotton. Great for the living room or as an accent pillow on your bed. Get it here.

An IKEA staple comes to life in a gorgeous new green. I’m all heart eyes for the refreshing change. Get it here.
#4 VATTENKRASSE Watering can, $9.99
Another green beauty. It looks so good that you happily leave it out on display when not using it. Get it here.
#5 ANILINARE Desk organizer, $3.99
The entire ANILINARE range is a throwback to more traditional times, with natural motifs. I especially love this metal organizer which would be great for my jewellery. Get it here.
#6 KADMIUM pendant lamp, 6″, $9.99
A lovely classic lamp shade in dusky grey. The glass lampshade is mouth blown by a skilled craftsperson. Where else can you get a unique lampshade for under $10? Get it here.
#7 AINA cushion cover, $9.99
The ribbon tie detail on the back is a cute detail and softens the expression of the rougher linen. Get it here.
#8 GODTAGBAR range of vases, $5.99 – $9.99
GODTAGBAR collection is inspired by classic Scandinavian vase forms. Each vase is handpainted and looks good even as a decor piece on its own. Get them here.
#9 LIVBOJ wireless charger, $4.99
Wireless chargers don’t come cheap, that is until IKEA stepped into the game. With LIVBOJ charging pad you can use your own USB-C cable and adapter. A reviewer says “Works just fine with iPhone 11 Pro, can’t beat the price. Make sure to get the cable, it doesn’t come with one, but this way you can buy the length you need.” Get it here.
#10 LASSBYN mirror, set of 2, $12.99
The gold rimmed mirrors can be used hanging or standing. They can be hung horizontally or vertically. I can see them working very nicely as part of a wall gallery. And you can’t beat the price for a set of 2 decorative mirrors. Get them here.
#11 LANGESUND round mirror, $14.99
Cheap round mirrors are hard to come by. This one has 2 color options: beige and dark grey, with a lightweight aluminum frame. Get it here.
#12 UNDERSÖKA insulated steel flask, $8.99
A leak-proof travel mug you can take everywhere. What I like most is how you can easily open the mug to drink with just one hand by clicking on the lid. Get it here.
#13 SÖRHASSEL memo board with magnets, $14.99
I’m just waiting for someone to cover an entire wall with this memo board. It would make a terrific accent wall. Get it here.
#14 ILSBO pendant lamp shade, bamboo, $14.99
Handmade with thin bamboo rings strung together. The natural colour of bamboo casts a warm glow that makes for a cozy atmosphere. Get it here.
At that price, do you even need to think about it? Get it here.
#25 KLOCKREN steamer insert, $3.99
This is one of the most useful things in the kitchen. I use it all the time to steam vegetables, buns and more. If you thinking of healthier cooking, pick one up on your next IKEA shopping trip. Get it here.
