In for a pound at Christmas

1 Dec

POUNDLAND LIFESTYLE paper stars on chair two for £1

Check out these gorgeous supersized gold paper stars (above), which are perfect for hanging from windows, banisters or walls. You’d imagine they’d be fairly expensive….

…but nope, you can get two for just £1 at – whisper it – Poundland.

And how about this cool Scandi-style peg wreath for holding cards…

Yep, it’s just £1 too, at Poundland.

And this on-trend honeycomb tree, and set of red and white bells? That’s right, just one pound (and in the case of the bells, £1 for ten)!

And this jewel-coloured tinsel wreath, tabletop tree and glittertastic baubles:

They also have some fab little metal tealight houses, in red and white, which would look amazing in a row on a mantlepiece; dainty felt snowflake bunting; and supersized paper stars in other colours:

In fact, I reckon, you could probably kit out an entire room for around a tenner at Poundland, and no-one would ever guess where you got it all from. Race you to the checkout!

Last minute dot coms part 2!

21 Dec

STOP PRESS!

Everyone loved last week’s  ‘Last Minute Dot Coms’ blog entry so much, I’ve got an update for you…

http://www.dotcomgiftshop.com inform me that not only can you still order something from their site until noon tomorrow (Thursday 22nd); but they’ll upgrade your postage to next day delivery. So, you’ll only pay the normal P&P fee of £3.95, but you’ll get a next-day service, worth £7.95. My choice? Some wrapping paper or bunting in their gorgeous Vintage Christmas print (above).

The guaranteed deadline for Christmas delivery from http://www.johnlewis.com has passed, but they’ve just extended the deadline of their ‘click and collect’ scheme to 7pm on Friday 23 December. So, you can shop online and reserve the items you want to collect in the store of your choice, thus beating the queues.

http://www.Next.co.uk have also got good news – you can order online up to 9pm tomorrow (Thursday 22nd) and get your pressies delivered the very next day.
