They have terrific storage baskets and small storage chests that are
inexpensive.

My guild is crazy about those blue bags which are sold near the
checkout.  They cost less than  $1, hold lots and seem to be sturdy.

There are some food products there.  

Maybe a wine glass or two?

Here in Europe they have these metallic storage boxes, two sizes sold
as a unit, one fits inside the other, with tight fitting lids that re
just perfect for moving the current project from one place to another.
THey are not the world's prettiest boxes, but boy are they useful! I
have three sets, all in use and next time I go by Ikea they are on my
list again.

They also sell scented candles and the cutest little candle holders...

Fabric shears; here Ikea sells these very large, very inexpensive
scissors that cut like a charm...

MMMMM, I think it's time to head out that way again!

In the kitchen goods area, there are some plastic napkin holders that consist
of two curved plastic sides and a bottom piece, fitted together.  You can
lift up the napkin holder and the sides tip away, making it easy to load
stuff between the two sides; when you set the holder down on a table, the
sides curve in and hold the napkins.  

I have two of them, and the next time I go back, I'm getting another.  One
holds my mail, and the other lives in my sewing room, and holds either
instructions upright or stacks of cut patches.

Another possibility might be one of their magnetic knife racks.  They're
strong enough to hold scissors firmly.

They do fantastic little wooden boxes with drawers of different sizes which
are great for keeping pins, pens and other bits and pieces. They are sold
unvarnished, so you can decorate it yourself.
