Introducing Winter With IKEA®

Extended family running in park in autumn

This year we're celebrating autumn and winter in style with an exciting new channel from Parentdish created in partnership with IKEA®.

For me this time of the year means long walks on bright, bracing days, marvelling at the first perfect conker (before every child's pocket is filled with shrivelled collections) and an excuse to wrap up in my favourite snuggly scarves - and, of course, preparing for Christmas and time with family and friends.

In this special section, we'll be bringing you shared experiences and inspiration for your family home while celebrating the traditions of Christmas.

We've also created easy and delicious winter warming food - comfort meals for all the family, yummy afternoon cakes, plus Christmas treats your children will love making.

With shorter, cooler days we're indoors together more, so this is the time when we look with fresh eyes at our family space and decide to make changes - especially in the count-down to Christmas and wanting our homes to look extra special. In this section there are some realistic space-saving solutions for your home, alongside probably all-too-familiar tales of fighting the battle for domestic order.

We know you'll love our easy to enter competition - the chance to win a £250 gift card to spend in IKEA®. This fabulous competition is only on Parentdish and you can enter here.
