WIN £100 Ikea Voucher – Student & Graduate Competition

As university students and recent graduates, money can often be tight. With limited budgets, furnishing a place to live or upgrading existing furniture is not always possible. To help with this, we are excited to announce an IKEA voucher giveaway open to students and graduates for a chance to win a £100 IKEA gift voucher.

IKEA is known for its wide range of affordable and trendy furniture and home goods. The £100 voucher prize can go a long way in allowing the winner to upgrade items for their living space.

Whether it’s some new organizers for a closet, additional seating for hosting friends, a set of colorful dish towels, string lights to brighten up a room, or even just some fresh fake plants to liven up a space, there are so many options to choose from. Even small upgrades here and there can make a place feel homier.
