Just bought throws/blankets for everyone's beds (instead of Xmas duvets). Very excited. Lots of Nordic styles on eBay.

They sound nice are you going to just put them on in December a bit of a Christmas tradition

hermioneweasley Sun 13-Oct-13 16:12:36

Yes sonly, I was thinking from 1st Dec

sonlypuppyfat Sun 13-Oct-13 16:16:14

Sounds lovely.

grin

We have the grey Nordic duvet set (online) and a Primark flannel white with tiny blur reindeer sheet and pillowcase set.
(DH didn't like the dark blue set and red wouldn't go in our room)
We bought a KS bed in January.
DD has our old double bed and my warm (but not Christmassy) microfibre plum duvet and sheet set .
The DC have Christmas fleece throws (bought when they were preschool age)

My bedding will go on Dec 1st I reckon.

Dunelms do some lovely fleece covers. I brought them last year for my 2 dd's and grandson .

I also got my eye on the grey nordic style ones from b&m for front room

I just bought this yesterday because I couldn't resist! Didn't think about putting them on the beds. Lovely idea!

There were lots in Dunelm. Really soft and cosy microfibre type fleece.

Can we have some ebay links please?

The gingerbread man thrown from Dunelm is gorgeous!

I just searched for Christmas blankets on eBay uk

hermioneweasley Sun 13-Oct-13 16:52:25

Scrap mine, the Dunelm stuff is lovely. Got a basketful!

glad you like! grin

<<chuffed>>

Today I just happened to swing into Dunelm Mill........
and got 2 fleeces (holly and gingerbread man)
2 gingerbread man cushions for my pooh brown sofa
and a doormat grin

Told the lady at the checkout is was 70 days (I'm sure she was thrilled ) probably thought I was a bit weird thlwink

Ah, but Dunelm always sell out really quickly of the fleece blankets, so you have to get them soon! We have two gingerbread man ones on a couple of chairs by the patio window which the cat likes to sleep on and spread black hairs all over.

I must look at the cushions.....

Sob ! That stupid shop don't home deliver those amazing blankets and I don't live near a shop. Not fair. sad

frosty21 Wed 16-Oct-13 16:07:10

Are the Dunelm mill gingerbread blankets microfibre fleece?

girlywhirly Wed 16-Oct-13 16:16:50

They're not the furry pile sort of fleece, but they're very cute and not expensive. Chimchar thinks they are microfibre.

Waitmonkey, do you have any rellies who live near a Dunelm who could post you some?

frosty21 Wed 16-Oct-13 16:20:34

Ah eau de toilette make sense! Was very confused for a minute there grin

Begging again for a ELC birthday code if anyone has then? Pretty please grin

frosty21 Wed 16-Oct-13 16:21:38

Wrong thread blush

Thanks girly - I'll think I'll pop down and look!

Penguinbeaver Wed 16-Oct-13 16:26:20

Got lovely red Nordic ones in matalan yesterday were in a 3for 2 offer at £5 each and then had the 20%off voucher too, they are lovely and soft. Worked out at about £2.67 each!! grin

SallyBear Wed 16-Oct-13 18:08:04

Ooooh. I always put on Santa duvets for the DC, but this year I want to get some Christmassy bedding for us, so I will pop into Dunelm and have a look!

Can I ask penguinbear which atalan voucher?

FriskyHenderson Wed 16-Oct-13 21:10:27

I can't find the matalan blanket on the website. It's a 25mminute drive to the nearest one... is it worth going on the off chance?

NaturalBlondeYeahRight Wed 16-Oct-13 22:03:09

Got a dunelm one the other day. It's nice but doesn't cover a whole single bed. Kind of up to the pillow iykwim.
Love my primark Xmas bedding - flannelette=cosy
