The Gingerbread House Kit has just come in to stores this week.
It's a really good price for one of these - you just stick it together with icing and decorate it however you like.

I know they sell these and the Gingerbread Cookie Decorations every year, but they always sell out quickly so it's worth getting them early.

The Gingerbread Christmas Tree is new this year. It's two large gingerbread tree shapes that slot together to make a 3D tree ready to decorate.

The Tree Cookies are Heart and Star Shapes with a pre-cut hole ready to decorate and hang from the tree.

I'm sorry the pictures are so bad, but they aren't on the IKEA website so it was so everyone could see what they are.

It's nice if you eat it when it's fresh, but if it's been decorated and displayed it does go soft and stale after a couple of days. We never eat our house though, just have fun decorating it.
The cookies are a nicer taste though, thinner and more crunchy.

I had an IKEA Gingerbread House once & it was the nicest gingerbread I've ever tasted. I was gobsmacked as they're so cheap! Nice thing to make with the kids, even little ones who just love to decorate with sweets. Hot from me!

These are by far cheapest and taste ok, though they are the crispy type gingerbread not the soft kind. The hardest thing is to get the sides to stand up - you can solve this by getting a twix bar, melting the choc a bit, and sticking one in each corner to prop the sides up.

We often make a scary halloween gingerbread house too. Lots of good ideas for ones if you google.

I usually get a couple - I make a pretty one as a present for family, then build the second one and let the kids go mad on it. They really enjoy it.
We got some mini gingerbread men to live in it too!

They had one in store decorated as a spooky house for Halloween, which looked great.

I bought some draws from IKEA once they seemed to be made out of gingerbread biscuit too.

It would be quicker to go to the corner shop, buy the ingredients and bake your own. Probably cheaper too. I wouldn't be chuffed either!

They got the pick and mix in the Swedish food market also...use a few sweets to decorate and nibble.

Hi Emma, it doesn't look like it can promise nut free.
On the packet it says "May contain traces of eggs, soybeans, almonds and milk".
