The last one is reaching thread capacity shock so am starting off round 2 on sharing great bargains you have all found. Last thread has been fabulous so please keep the ideas coming.

Thanks btw to whoever linked to the Dr Seuss/hunger games/free angelina books - they arrived today and are fabulous thanks

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Tue 02-Oct-12 18:29:46

thanks reastie

Marking place on new trying to avoid more bargains now though as shopping nearly done grin

PinkChampagneandStrawberries Tue 02-Oct-12 18:32:59

Oh I missed the 1st one will watch this one with interest thanks

BlameItOnTheCuervo Tue 02-Oct-12 18:35:06

does anyone have a free delivery code for the book people or redhouse, please?

BikeRunSki Tue 02-Oct-12 18:35:11

Got DS a Kidizoom camera on Amazon last week, reduced from £50 to £32, current model. If you join Amazon family, then you get Amazon Prime free for 3 months.

WineGless Tue 02-Oct-12 18:45:18

Book people have 10% off until tomorrow night with SPARKLE not sure re free delivery though sorry

Maraki Tue 02-Oct-12 18:47:07

I wanted to thank whoever posted about the Wallis jewellry sale. Stuff came today and it is beautiful. I've ordered some more today!

Amazon has some brilliant cookbooks reduced to about a tenner (laurene pascalle, gordon ramsey ultimate, nigellisima, jamie olivers 15 mins).

Thank you everyone, most of my Christmas shopping is now done and most importantly without last minute panic and WITHIN BUDGET. Thank you!

Marking place.

3duracellbunnies Tue 02-Oct-12 19:02:02

Marking place but must stop ordering so much, just have a late teenager and some friends to buy for, plus some bits for ds. Beyond that I think it is stocking fillers, unless the dd discover some wants and bump my purchases onto their birthday pile!

BeaWheesht Tue 02-Oct-12 19:02:25

Thanks for starting this.

Teaco have big boxes of plasticine for £5

They also had some batman stuff - mostly costumes

Asda have their Halloween stuff in - got the kids some fancy glasses (think dame Edna) for a quid each - an acquired taste I know but my kids love any tat thing like that.

Just marking my place ladies smile

Marking place grin

Can't remember who asked about Lego (sorry) but if you're going to order direct from Lego themselves it is worth signing up to their VIP scheme, as you can get points to redeem against future purchases, and they really stack up.

Rollersara Tue 02-Oct-12 19:12:17

Do we have a link to the old thread <lazy> grin

mimsy That would be

Thanks for that tip. DD1 is just getting into proper lego so i'll look into it.

WineGless Tue 02-Oct-12 19:20:39

Check amazon out for Lego- which sort do you want? O

BlameItOnTheCuervo Tue 02-Oct-12 19:30:50

Thank you winegless!

silver28 Tue 02-Oct-12 19:42:09

Piglychez, I have bought lego cheap from amazon - I tend to decide what I'd like, add it to my wishlist then keep an eye on this list as prices fluctuate a lot. Star Wars ewok lego was reduced from £25 to £12.50 and seems to vary daily.

RonettePulaski Tue 02-Oct-12 19:44:09

Can someone who isn't as lazy as me, or who remembers tell me what the dr Seuss thingy is. We love dr Seuss but don't own any

Marking place got some fab bargains

LaTrucha Tue 02-Oct-12 19:55:09

I want to know about the free Angelina books! And Dr Suess...

pigleychez Tue 02-Oct-12 19:57:32

Its the Girly lego she wants. I was thinking of the Stables.

Ill check out Amazon. Thanks smile

MooseyMoo Tue 02-Oct-12 20:00:01

reastie that was me! I haven't received mine yet so very pleased you're happy with them.

Thanks for starting second thread

MooseyMoo Tue 02-Oct-12 20:08:23

Dr Seuss x3 were £0.03p but not on special anymore
Hunger Games 0.99p
Angelina Ballerina Book Set 0.00p - add FREE5 at checkout

There are daily deals and other good bargains to be found on this site

whoneedstosleep Tue 02-Oct-12 20:10:06

reastie and moosey I ordered those books too. Can't wait for them to arrive!!

Aspiemum2 Tue 02-Oct-12 20:10:33

Marking place, any moxie bargains?

3duracellbunnies Tue 02-Oct-12 20:11:20

Have a look on brick badger for lego deals. My DDs have found that you don't too many bricks for your money on the friends stuff, but they do like the minifigures, wish they did Friends minifigure packets.

MooseyMoo Tue 02-Oct-12 20:12:54

There are x12 dr Seuss books for £14.99 on Book People

thisthreadwilloutme Tue 02-Oct-12 20:19:44

Not totally online but argos has the Playmobil school building half price at 59.99. You can reserve it online and pick up instore.

The playmobil pyramid is also half price at 29.99.

I've just picked up the school and it looks fantastic!

rhondajean Tue 02-Oct-12 20:22:18

Just checking into this thread, sorry no bargains today but I'll update as I find them.

Gumby Tue 02-Oct-12 20:25:38

Angelina Ballerina no longer free - says code has been used maximum number of times

be careful with that Banzo website

at 4.99 postage could pick up those cheaper on free delivery on amazon

pigleychez Tue 02-Oct-12 20:26:57

Personalised fairy castle from studio

pigleychez Tue 02-Oct-12 20:28:10

ignore that one... now out of stock sad

foosty Tue 02-Oct-12 20:32:42

Maraki that was me with the Wallis jewellery - mine arrived today too! But a bracelet in it was snapped angry - and for £3 is it worth sending back? Anyway, the other things were lovely and now I can't see myself giving them away as I want them for me! <greedy>

Off to have another look at it - had an idea that some of the necklaces would make nice teacher gifts.

rhondajean Tue 02-Oct-12 20:34:06

There's just been an Argos advert on tv advertising a third off selected toys including my little pony - off for a nosy.

eandh Tue 02-Oct-12 20:39:33

Marking place yet to find any offers to share!

MooseyMoo Tue 02-Oct-12 20:42:10

gumby yes, the postage is steep. Think it was a one off find for the dr Seuss books at 3p, a free mini library and a trilogy for 99p.

WineGless Tue 02-Oct-12 20:46:12

Pigley how about Playmobil pony stables amazon reduced as are the dressage stables?

oreocrumbs Tue 02-Oct-12 20:56:18

Jumping on board this thread. I'm off for a nosey around for some bargains, will report back if I find any.

oreocrumbs Tue 02-Oct-12 21:15:42

Peppa pig delux playhouse Half price on Toys R Us. Actually they have a lot of multi buy offers on, and quite a few slashed prices. Worth having a rummage around the site.

oreocrumbs Tue 02-Oct-12 21:21:39

Children in need t shirt by Frost french £3.15 delivered - Debenhams.

Use codes GM97 and SHD1

the first code gives 10% off the second free del.

There are lots of lovely t shirts by different designers, most around thge £7 mark I like the ted baker bunny, but the one I linked is the cheapest. The codes work on all of them.

oreocrumbs Tue 02-Oct-12 21:31:23

Argos are doing a double up on the vouchers next week. So you will get a £10 voucher on a £50 spend and a £20 voucher on a £100 spend!

So hang fire untill next week if you are spending some money in there.

Aspiemum2 Tue 02-Oct-12 21:52:19

Good to know about Argos, combined with 3 for 2 it's a good deal. Word of warning though is that some toys have been price hiked so are still cheaper elsewhere despite being 3 for 2

PersuedByPenguins Tue 02-Oct-12 21:59:25

foosty- good idea re teachers! How are they packaged when you receive them? Would you need to get gift boxes?

Evening, nothing to add yet. Just marking my place!

skyebluesapphire Tue 02-Oct-12 22:26:04

Dont know if this has already been said, but I ordered an Innotab from Boots, £20 off online, so it cost me £60 instead of £80. Also if you use your mobile phone to order, you get £5 off £50 and free delivery.

rhondajean Tue 02-Oct-12 22:28:59

Argos 3 for 2 on toys finished today. The third off looks to be a replacement on some of them. The £10 voucher is a great tip though thanks, I've been looking for a kindle for MiL and the ten pound voucher can go on dd1s mini fridge!

aristocat Tue 02-Oct-12 22:31:43

Nothing online yet but I did get a couple of annuals today from Home Bargains, they were £2.99 each. Lots to choose from, I got BuildABear and Shoot but there were others.

mercibucket Tue 02-Oct-12 22:44:11

I got some of those annuals too! Hideously pink barbie one and an angry birds one

ChoccyJules Tue 02-Oct-12 22:57:27

Thanks for Book People Code. Done two nephews and four godchildren. Result!

ja9 Tue 02-Oct-12 23:00:53

Not an 'offer' but a good wee find nonetheless.. our Lidl have mini panetone in cute wee boxes for 99p. Thought they would be good for teachers / sunday school teachers / playground helpers / whoever / etc

needanswers Tue 02-Oct-12 23:01:47


skyebluesapphire Tue 02-Oct-12 23:02:07

<must stop posting on old thread>
Penguins, the Wallis stuff comes on a little card saying Wallis, like if you picked it up in store. Then a plastic wrap round that. So I think a gift box would be good. But what if the teachers read this thread and know I spent only £3 on the gift? blush

MistressIggi Wed 03-Oct-12 09:43:02

No minimum spend on Past Times when I tried it.

iloveholidays Wed 03-Oct-12 09:44:32

I cant get the book people free delivery code to work... has anyone had any success?


LivingSocial (similar to Groupon) have sets of Tin Tin books from £11 for 3 books up to £29 for 8 books. here

DesperatelySeekingPomBears Wed 03-Oct-12 11:04:46

I got a load of clothes in the JJB clearance sale last night, including t-shirts for BIL and workout clothes for SIL.

twolittledarlings Wed 03-Oct-12 11:41:35

Found out from Tesco Clubcard that their Jessops offer for every £5 reward token will be doubled up. Sent off for £115 rewards for 2 camera worth £230.

I wouldn't spend that much if it was cash but as they are tokens, well worth bargain for my 2 daughters Xmas. Hopefully, might last them thru their teenage years.

Note offer to exchange by 16 oct and used by 31 oct.

PersuedByPenguins Wed 03-Oct-12 14:14:31

Mistress- Its worth more than £3 and they'll love it!

FayKnights Wed 03-Oct-12 18:54:38

Shamelessly marking place, the previous thread was excellent, thanks to everyone for all the lovely bargains. I''m keeping my eyes peeled so I can add some of my own.

FreddoBaggyMac Wed 03-Oct-12 19:44:24

Wappy dog (which is the only thing DD1 has said she wants for Christmas so far!) is 32 including postage at Amazon and £50 in the shops.

MistressIggi Wed 03-Oct-12 19:45:52

HokeyCokey are they scarves or more of a stole? Hard to picture from site. Thinking: it's not a bargain if I order myself one.

rhondajean Wed 03-Oct-12 19:55:15

Boots Xmas offers start this Friday with a half price boss orange ladies perfume bag etc set for £30. Should b a new offer every week.

I think for all the money this thread has saved me, it has cost me just as much on bargains for me!

Molton brown bought, with no one to give it to.... apart from me!

Am tempted by the scarf for SIL but not sure if it is her thing. Hmm I shall ponder it.

Brilliant thread!

Thanks Moosey Have just bought my first xmas present. MB gift set for the inlaws grin

JaquelineHyde Wed 03-Oct-12 20:13:03

Ooooooh I love the Boots big set offers!

MistressIggi Wed 03-Oct-12 20:18:43

The Molton Brown offer (if they let you do this) is cheaper if you buy everything in different orders - as it is ten pounds off, rather than a percentage of your order.

Gumby Wed 03-Oct-12 20:25:12

Argos dolls out of stock for delivery sad

HappyAsEyeAm Wed 03-Oct-12 20:29:08

My local Boots store has its £10 worth fo fpoints free (on top of the usual points) for every £50 spend next Thursday.

oreocrumbs Wed 03-Oct-12 20:37:09

Oh no Gumby. They were in stock a short while ago when I posted it. Will they let u collect from store?

MummysHappyPills Wed 03-Oct-12 20:40:59

I just bought molten brown tinted lip balm, usually £11 for 5.95 delivered in gift box with free sample! Now trying to decide whether to give it to my friend for her birthday or keep it for myself!

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Wed 03-Oct-12 20:42:12

They're scarves, I think stole sounds posher but not sure what the different is!

double you can pay with paypal at Boots,, toysrus, Argos, zavvi and now molton brown!!

MistressIggi Wed 03-Oct-12 20:47:54

Thanks Hokey, think I'll order one for a friend and one for me
Have just made two Molton Brown orders to get the tenner off each time. Seems to have worked.
Might have a look at past times for the MIL now.

MistressIggi Wed 03-Oct-12 20:49:04

Hokey, sorry to be a pain, but does it say Orla Kiely anywhere on scarf or packaging?

MummysHappyPills Wed 03-Oct-12 20:55:14

Oh don't tell me that about Molten Brown! I'll end up spending a fortune! grin

reastie Wed 03-Oct-12 20:56:54

Really disappointed - ordered 3 O Keily scarves and my payment was declined (nothing wrong with my card) and now when I try and redo it the colours/designs I chose have gone missing. V miffed [sigh] .

whoneedstosleep Wed 03-Oct-12 21:01:17

Ive just done the same mistress , I ordered a hand cream using my email then went back on and ordered a lipbalm using DH's. Means paying postage twice but still works out cheaper.

LauraPashley Wed 03-Oct-12 21:20:19

Not strictly onlIne but thought you ladies would know...anyone heard of a date for the sainsburys 1/2 price toy sale? Normally mid oct I think?

rhondajean Wed 03-Oct-12 21:22:43

Been keeping my eyes peeled like mad Laura but nothing yet.

It started on a Thursday last year, during English half term, so my money is on Thursday 25th but that's just a guess.

WineGless Wed 03-Oct-12 21:26:18

Reastie, I'm having problems with uniqlo site too

3duracellbunnies Wed 03-Oct-12 21:37:06

Definitely not online, but 20% off everything in Hobbycraft instore tomorrow with voucher below. Was a bit of a pain to print, but moved it into acrobat and printed there. Could just be dh trying to stop me spending money!!!

zipzap Wed 03-Oct-12 21:42:32

Maybe more for yourselves than presents but Amazon currently have the mums family planner and mums family calendar for £5.50 each.

Real bargain and much jollier than the organised mum ones - similar but with colours and cartoons and loads of very sweet cartoon animal stickers (can you tell I'm a convert - have had the calendar the last three years and love it! used organised mum ones previously but found them a bit drab and also difficult to see dates on, these are nice and big and clear). I have next year's already on order, should be arriving any day now...

fuzzpig Wed 03-Oct-12 21:44:31

aww bit disappointed with past times, there were hardly any tree decorations on there. sad

I have a hobbycraft voucher from my local paper, got to try and get there but it is a bit out of the way.

Now browsing bookpeople site... This could get pricey.

LaTrucha Wed 03-Oct-12 21:47:16

piggly - were you able to use a code with that tractor? My son would love it.

NorbertDentressangle Wed 03-Oct-12 21:50:45

The Orla Kiely scarves are lovely - I ordered one for me and got it last week.

MistressIggi - They have an 'Orla Kiely' label on the scarf (sewn into the hem IYSWIM) and they also come on a small hanger with a sticker on and with a small cardboard tag (both with the Orla Kiely name/logo on)

Definitely worth the money IMO!

LaTrucha Wed 03-Oct-12 21:58:25

If anyone sees the Baby Annabell carseat / jogger thing on offer can you post pretty please?

MistressIggi Wed 03-Oct-12 21:58:46

THanks Norbert, that's great - have ordered two smile

pigleychez Wed 03-Oct-12 21:59:22

LaTrucha - Sadly not because it was already reduced.

It looks great though and the lights flash and the horn beeps. Looks well built too and life like to the real John deere Tractors. I'll warn you though, its pretty big!

LaTrucha Wed 03-Oct-12 22:02:32

DS will ride it! I bought him a tonka truck and he rides that.

fuzzpig Wed 03-Oct-12 23:21:05

just spent over an hour on the book people, bloody hell that was exhausting! I'm not usually up this late blush

spend £41 - got 4 books for DSD (it was so hard to narrow it down, I wanted to buy about 10!), 5 colouring/activity books for DD, some crafty things for DH to do with DD (paper planes and robots!), and a set of 30 kids birthday cards to save time/effort/cash for all the damn school parties.

also got a free RHS diary, they are really lovely - I gave one to my nan a couple of years back but in the interest of not repeating a gift I think I have to keep it for myself yes?

3duracellbunnies Wed 03-Oct-12 23:26:53

I reckon sburys will have a bumper new year sale then, their toys are usually so expensive I only buy them on offer.

everydayaschoolday Wed 03-Oct-12 23:30:39

thanks Moosey. Have ordered Molton Brown too using the coupon. I choose the same handcream as you, as I think lovely MIL will love it, and will sit nicely in her christmas 'beauty' hamper. Smashing bargain with free sampler and free gift box thrown in smile

fuzzpig Wed 03-Oct-12 23:41:43

I reckon I'll give that molton brown a go tomorrow - not tried any myself but it seems like the kind of thing my mum will like smile

Whyriskit Thu 04-Oct-12 08:16:23

Thanks for the past times code, that's MIL sorted! Will have a look at molton brown when i get back from school run.

Lego city fire truck back down to £8.07 (from £17.99) again this morning - have ordered one now as this price seems to leap around a LOT!

LaTrucha Thu 04-Oct-12 09:24:36

On Amazon?

Maranello Thu 04-Oct-12 09:30:21

Um, Amazon, yes, that would have been helpful to add, wouldn't it? blush
Thank you!

Aspiemum2 Thu 04-Oct-12 09:33:34

The lego millenium falcon is down to £107.70 today on amazon - still a lot of money though. Anybody seen it cheaper?

mynameis Thu 04-Oct-12 09:40:38

Remarking place. Off to check out the Jessops clubcard offer and Lego fire truck on Amazon

Love this thread grin

FreddoBaggyMac Thu 04-Oct-12 09:52:53

Thanks Maranello - have just ordered a lego fire truck for DS!

fuzzpig Thu 04-Oct-12 09:54:30

FBF is there a code for that ELC offer or is it automatic?

FitByForty Thu 04-Oct-12 10:42:34

Fuzzpig - it's automatic, no fiddle codes to remember smile

Automatically defaults to free delivery too.

FitByForty Thu 04-Oct-12 10:43:09

Bloody autocorrect - fiddly not fiddle!

Nervousfirsttimer Thu 04-Oct-12 10:44:48

Anyone tried using the Milton brown code for more than one order? Does it work if you place multiple orders using same contact info?

fuzzpig Thu 04-Oct-12 10:45:43

Sweeeeeet grin

Will have a look in the next few days, thanks for telling us x

lynniep Thu 04-Oct-12 10:52:07

I havent checked the whole thread so I don't know if anyone has mentioned that Tesco have started their toy sale and I noted that Bluebell Cottage (Sylvanian families) is half price at £20. (amongst other things) I don't have girls, and I already got my niece one last year so no use to me, but they are very cute. I don't think they have them online at the mo, just in store.

MegBusset Thu 04-Oct-12 10:54:29

Thanks for the Molton Brown code, have got three lots of lovely shower/bath stuff smile

bleedingheart Thu 04-Oct-12 10:54:50

Thanks for the Lego fire truck tip off!

fuzzpig Thu 04-Oct-12 11:11:01

Sorry if repeating others but leap pad explorer thingy is £40 on ELC at the moment - currently out of stock but might be worth keeping an eye out if anyone's interested

sybilvimes Thu 04-Oct-12 11:16:08

Someone was asking about monster high dolls earlier, there are a few in the boots three for two offer, I got some for dd.

Also, I saw the millennium falcon on amazon at £107 and have checked there is no where cheaper, I think it probably is the best price you will get as the larger Lego toys don't tend to drop much in price.

skyebluesapphire Thu 04-Oct-12 11:44:47

Gumby - thanks for the Bangzo Enid Blyton tip - Just ordered mine, got the free Angelina Ballerina books too, plus The Hunger Games trilogy for 99p......

gumby Thanks, just ordered the EB books, some pony books and free book set - all 3 DDs covered!

pigleychez Thu 04-Oct-12 14:03:34

Arrgghh how typical of ELC to have 20% just after my Nephews birthday present was delivered yesterday!

happierhigherstrongerwheezing Thu 04-Oct-12 14:23:03

I have three separate orders for Molton brown, it was still cheaper than ordering all together.

Goldpippin Thu 04-Oct-12 14:32:40

The Elc wooden dolls house is reduced to £80 and then another 20% off so just £64, looks quite a nice one.

Zeeky Thu 04-Oct-12 14:37:28

Just ordered a few presents from ELC wink. Thanks guys!

fuzzpig Thu 04-Oct-12 14:37:49

Oh goodness could so easily spend at least £100 on ELC... I will have to speak to DH! Might take the opportunity to get a few birthday presents as there are so many parties at school.

DH came back from town with stuff from Disney, some for the DCs but also some for me, really looking forward to my stocking now <big kid emoticon> grin

fuzzpig Thu 04-Oct-12 14:38:10

Ooh what did you get?

MooseyMoo Thu 04-Oct-12 14:39:59

For Joules fans...

Spend over £20 to get £10 off. Code is BBHE20. There's super saver delivery now for £1 too

Badvoc Thu 04-Oct-12 14:56:04

Just seen the new book people brochure...
Some great sets of books...astrosaurs and the booker prize novel set.
Beast quest.
Also some lovey Xmas decoration books.
Free del if over £25 and free gift over £40.

TheAngelshavetheOod Thu 04-Oct-12 15:11:01

Was just going to post re latest book people offers

The Playmobil farm set is half price in House of Fraser.

PersuedByPenguins Thu 04-Oct-12 16:11:53

Mothercare has an error on their website which means that the ELC pink wooden kitchen is still showing as £30 off so they are having to honour that price plus the extra 20% off at the mo, makes the kitchen £96 (usually £150 and its back to full price on ELC site- Mothercare offer free delivery to store too!)

You'll have to be quick to catch it!

PersuedByPenguins Thu 04-Oct-12 16:12:38

Oh and if going direct to ELC they offer price match wink

If anyone is buying for a baby Tesco have the Vtech Baby Dance Sit to Stand for £20. I can't see it on the website and it says special purchase in store so it might be one of the 'when its gone its gone' deals. Buy It Now price on ebay is £37.99, suitable from 9-36 months.
Very Happy, had the £45 Fisher Price one on the xmas list for ds smile

Ooh it is on the website but listed under birthday gift, boys, 3 year old confused

MooseyMoo Thu 04-Oct-12 16:31:33

thewhistler I bought this for my DS's first bday. Possible gift for your youngest godchild?

reastie Thu 04-Oct-12 16:37:38

Yes yes to squeaky eggs - DD loves them!

Thanks for Joules code - am trying to resist!

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Thu 04-Oct-12 16:42:53

I am trying to use it, along with the rest of the world i think, their website has ground to halt.

It's dd1's favourite shop so thought i'd her a little something..

reastie Thu 04-Oct-12 16:46:14

Yeah - I asked them (joules) via their fb page when their site would be sorted and they just told me to ring up to make an order - so how am I suppose to peruse and see what I want then?! Had a nose earlier but struggling for things that are spot on £20 (or just a teeny bit over) they must do that on purpose and don't want to end out spending alot more than I need IYKWIM.

MooseyMoo Thu 04-Oct-12 16:53:12

reastie how old is your daughter? I was looking at some stuff in the Joules outlet section and there was a dress for £19 but from Age6 onwards the price changes to £21.

StopBreakingMyStuff Thu 04-Oct-12 16:56:00


HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Thu 04-Oct-12 17:11:38

The site is better now but everything is 19.95 or the next lever is the 25.00 mark and i don't want to spend much as these are just extras.

Might just not bother, they do some lovely toiletries in Boots, have already brought some for dd i wish they would put them on their website as i would buy more, i might ask them on fb.

NeatFreak Thu 04-Oct-12 17:29:12

Loving this thread, thanks!
Both my dc would like furbys- they cost £59 each, has anyone seen them on offer or with new customer discounts etc anywhere? Argos has them but don't seem to be doing their offer where you get vouchers for every £50 you spend...

Marking grin

Fairyjen Thu 04-Oct-12 17:37:22

Excellent thread ladies!

Nothing specific but if you go on eBay home page and click on deals there is loads of stuff on their! Not just for kids either, house did get my dd peppa pig world playset (6 houses! And figures!) for £19.99 should have been £60!!!

It's well worth a look and does daily deals which change good ideas for dh on this bit!

The sylvanian bluebell cottage was out if stock but have just got e mail to say it is back in grin

PuffPants Thu 04-Oct-12 17:56:04

Be careful with ELC, unless you're buying their own-brand, they are expensive.

fuzzpig Thu 04-Oct-12 17:57:53

Yes definitely if you are getting a non-ELC brand it's worth checking other stores for prices. For example I'm thinking of getting a few Melissa and Doug things for birthday party presents - some are cheaper on amazon but some are not!

thisthreadwilloutme Thu 04-Oct-12 18:13:42

I got a Furby free on the argos 3 for 2 so I imagine they will be included in the voucher offer.

TheAngelshavetheOod Thu 04-Oct-12 18:49:32

Fairy Jen , got a link for the peppa pig thing?

skyebluesapphire Thu 04-Oct-12 18:53:35

SayHelloToMyLittleFriend Thu 04-Oct-12 20:19:14

I've just saw on hotukdeals that amazon have the Harry Potter complete 8 film collection on Blu-ray for £28.00. Sounds like a good deal smile

Maranello Thu 04-Oct-12 20:49:03

Don't suppose anyone has a free delivery code for dotcomgiftshop? Seen a couple of nice things I'd like, but put off by the £3.95 delivery charge.

You wonderful MNer's - what a great thread.

Have written some Christmas cards earlier so thought would have a look for a thread with gift ideas and here you all are.

Have just bought SIL the Molten Brown handcream and debating whether to go back online and get one for my mum, other SIL and MIL as well....mmm, decisions, decisions.... Ta Moosey for the tip off! grin

Posted Tuesday and still working last night. Happy shopping and thanks for oreocrumbs.

Gormella Fri 05-Oct-12 06:28:51


I noticed yesterday that ELC have 20% off a lot of their range and 2 for £15 on some Happyland stuff too. Disneystore online and shops has 50% a lot of stuff. wouldn't usually shop in there as prices are ridiculous but there were some good half price bargains.


TheAngelshavetheOod Fri 05-Oct-12 07:17:36

If you have Amazon family ( got it free for 3 months from the last thread!) there's £5 off £10 children's books and 25% clothing and loads of offers in the latest email so don't delete it !

GM97 didn't work for me on a Debenhams sale item sad

oreocrumbs Fri 05-Oct-12 09:11:12

Have just double checked for you an GM97 is still active on sale items. It might be worth another try?

If not there will be another code along in a few days if you can wait? Not sure how long the sale stock will last though so bear that in mind.

Un related to the christmas shopping, I have just bought 2 pairs of lined curtains for £17 from tesco clearance. They had lots slashed prices on home stuff, curtains from £2 odd.

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Fri 05-Oct-12 09:12:19

fuzz that is the one i posted on last thread it's here

They have got some great bargains, delivery is only £2.99 or you can have store collection. Also if you have an ebay account you can pay with paypal.

If you're near one it's well worth a visit loads of reductions and i got dds some collectable 2012 figures this week, they ones in cases £20.00 reduced to £1.00, great stocking fillers.

oreocrumbs Fri 05-Oct-12 09:27:35

I think this has been mentioned upthread, but the offer starts today - and this one really is a good value offer, the perfume alone sells for £35/£40.

Boots star offer

As far as I know these star offers are not included in the 3 for 2. Thre will be a nw one every friday untill christmas.

Fairyjen Fri 05-Oct-12 09:29:35

theangel I can't work out how to do link as I'm on my phone. Is from zavvi outlet store - they have a shop on eBay. They also do blue ray DVDs for £4.99 and all postage is free!!!

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Fri 05-Oct-12 09:37:26

Fairy be careful with Zavvi, they often sell items and then don't deliver!

I ordered a wii game on 23rd Sept, it was in stock, immediate dispatch. Still not arrived so just called and was told that it wasn't in stock and they won't have it for a few weeks - no communication at all, i have cancelled the order.

They did the same thing last year with a Monster High set, i won't use them again.

Fairyjen Fri 05-Oct-12 09:38:41

Disney store have got50% off selected products including the big soft toys.

fuzzpig Fri 05-Oct-12 09:39:49

We have an entertainer in town as well so I'll have a look. Going to hobbycraft as well today as I got a voucher in the paper. And the Disney store for the sale. Maybe boots for 3 for 2.

Going to be busy - but it'd be good if I could make lots of decisions today!

MistressIggi Fri 05-Oct-12 09:42:11

Hokeycokey thanks for the tip about Zazzi. Am looking for Fifa 13 (xbox) for DH's birthay next week - can't get cheaper than 38.97 so far.

Fairyjen Fri 05-Oct-12 09:53:28

Will be careful I've not had any probs so far, all my stuff been delivered. Maybe it's because was done through eBay....

loueyt Fri 05-Oct-12 09:56:25

New to this but have just found the Wimpy Kid books online at Asda for 2 for £7 got the movie diary for £3.80 ish for my son who is an ardent fan. Cheaper that Amazon and Tesco.

Thanks for the Joules code, just got an umbrella for my friend and a pair of shark socks for DS1's friend, who is a Joules fan, delivered for £17! Great tip!

Also just received delivery of my Molton Brown Handcream! Packaged in a lovely box with gift card, looks worth loads more than £6.95!!!

Thanks everyone!!

skyebluesapphire Fri 05-Oct-12 10:42:59

Thanks for the Disney Store tipoff - Just ordered DD a giant Minnie Mouse £10 instead of £20! and a cuddly Cinderella doll for her friend £10 instead of £18 :-)

Thats the kind of shopping I like :-)

fuzzpig Fri 05-Oct-12 10:47:25

We got a cuddly stitch sky, it is SO CUTE! Not sure who to give it to hmm

Iggi - I am not sure of the rules but Tesco direct had some offer where you get FIFA 13 for £30ish when you also buy something (I think it's Xbox points or something? I don't know as I don't have an Xbox) so if the other thing is something you'd also buy it might be worth a look

fuzzpig Fri 05-Oct-12 10:53:25

Mmm can't find it on Tesco site now maybe it was a short term offer sorry sad (still worth looking though in case I missed it)

Tesco have this Hot Wheels set for £15 in store, I couldn't find it on their website though.

Does anyone know how long that £10 off lasts?

Fairyjen Fri 05-Oct-12 11:42:58

Jus gone back on Disney store, no basket item to buy anything!! Tips anyone?

ChristmasKate Fri 05-Oct-12 11:53:20

We like the jake and the never land pirates drawing sets, Disney bath toys, repunzel doll and a Daisy Duck.

Some of the jake stuff is good, bath toys and telescope or you could just buy yourself some new pj's!

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Fri 05-Oct-12 13:59:42

tis me what's breaking it i think, sorry

My MB stuff arrived today as well, really please.

reastie call them i'm sure they would send you another one.

BabsJansen Fri 05-Oct-12 14:03:08

Has anyone seen any well priced princessy fancy dress. Cinderella perhaps?

reastie Fri 05-Oct-12 14:03:27

hokey grin . I've emailed them living in hope I'll get something free grin

Another past times code - £10 off when you spend £30 when using THANKYOU

MegBusset Fri 05-Oct-12 14:05:33

My MB goodies arrived just now, very impressed with the delivery speed!

MooseyMoo Fri 05-Oct-12 14:13:56

Fuzzpig I discovered this brand through Zuilly. I've just brought the next size up for my DD (2.5) and comparing them, they still look brand new. Very pleased with how well they have washed, good sized buttons and elasticated waist, and lovely bright patterns.

Mini ZZZ Normally priced at £17, these are half price.

reastie oh no, hope you you get a replacement

Fairyjen Fri 05-Oct-12 14:32:09

babs fancy-clothing-store-uk do gift sets I got sleeping beauty dress with a doll as well is official Disney version was £16 free postage

iloveholidays Fri 05-Oct-12 14:35:00

10% off at the Cotton Bag Store with cotton2012.

They do personalised bags, mouse mats, aprons etc. No idea on the quality but I've just ordered a little draw string golf bag for £3.14 so will let you know when I receive it.

fuzzpig Fri 05-Oct-12 14:35:16

Ooh those are pretty cute!

I was looking in Disney store - they don't usually get character jammies, but they are £12 each. Seen lots of nice ones in Debenhams, M&S etc but all a bit pricey - we usually get cheap sets from supermarket or primark, and PIL tend to send nice ones throughout the year including at Xmas, but they need jammies from the elves on Xmas eve too, it's the law grin

Badvoc Fri 05-Oct-12 15:52:37

Any of you got any ideas for female teachers?
£5 ideally as I have 3 to buy for!

FitByForty Fri 05-Oct-12 16:05:10

Badvoc - what about the Molten Brown lip glosses - they only work out at £5.95 if you use the £10 off code (MARIE10). They do one that's a fairly neutral colour so would suit anyone (sorry, can't link on phone).
You'd have to place them as 3 separate orders though.

reastie Fri 05-Oct-12 16:06:06

badvoc how about|PIGGY these joules memo pads? They aren't that exciting but you can get 3 and use the £10 code mentioned earlier, £1 postage then all 3 gifts come to £12. As a female teacher I'd be pretty pleased with them as they are nice and actually can be used.

ecuse Fri 05-Oct-12 16:28:43

Thanks all. Wallis jewellery - check. Personalised Peppa pig book - check. Orla Kiely scarves - check!

Anyone got any good ideas for generic 'presents for men' (but not anything involving golf jokes or I shall weep) for around the £10 mark?

DillyTante Fri 05-Oct-12 16:36:38

Thanks so much for the Molten Brown code. Love Naran Ji! Can't justify it for me so bought some for my mum.

Zeeky Fri 05-Oct-12 16:37:49

Aaaggrghhhh the Joules site is driving me mad! I keep getting as far as placing my order & it then goes back to entering payments details bit!

shelley72 Fri 05-Oct-12 16:38:26

Thank you for this thread, its my first year of buying teacher presents so I am shamelessly stealing your ideas!

Fairyjen Fri 05-Oct-12 16:45:49

needanswers Fri 05-Oct-12 17:04:17

DD is nearly 3, she has a stack of barbies for Christmas (they fit her dolls house and were only 75p in the charity shop), she loves camper vans, is she too young for it?

Fairyjen Fri 05-Oct-12 17:12:24

Can someone out link in for previous thread, can't find it!!

fuzzpig Fri 05-Oct-12 17:12:34

Not sure if it's online but I just went to hmv and got glee season 2 for £15 - it's nearly £30 on amazon! Will have a very happy DSD!

MooseyMoo Fri 05-Oct-12 17:56:37

My dad is so hard to get prezzies for... but I think he will like this Christmas Pudding by Heston. 25% off in Waitrose. It has a long date (unlike the mince pies that are November).

tickle33 Fri 05-Oct-12 18:01:45

Got the kidizoom twist camera from ocado for £26.50 instead of £50 and vtech innotab 2 tablet for £60 from smyths instead of £75

Badvoc Fri 05-Oct-12 18:02:22

Just been into the lushwebsite...(my b day next week and am treating myself)
They have a new product called FUN for kids whippch looks great..£5 per bar but lots of uses per bar...better than a bath bomb for stockings I think...

MooseyMoo Fri 05-Oct-12 18:19:51

Just had quick look at Crabtree and Evenlyn for MiL. They have 20% off full price items, until Mon 8th Nov - OCT20. Only to be used once. On checkout an Evelyn rose lotion 5ml sample was added free. Free giftwrap as well.

Right off to cook dinner - hmm chinese smile

rhondajean Fri 05-Oct-12 18:19:57

I bought a bar of fun in the shop last week for dd2s stocking it looks fab! You can play with it like plasticine and they showed me it made up as a bubble bath too, they smell gorgeous, I bought the blue because it's got something soothing for her eczema (forget what ) but they all smell lovely.

You can even wash your clothes with it! And it's quite a biggish bar.

ChristmasKate Fri 05-Oct-12 18:20:35

Oh Waitrose, Heston Christmas pud would be lovely in the hamper I'm making.

What else can I add to my basket for a Christmas delivery, I've never shopped at Waitrose before and I'm not hosting dinner this year so I'm looking for treats, nibbles and alcohol....

rhondajean Fri 05-Oct-12 18:20:39

That was about lush sorry in reply to badvoc!

reastie Fri 05-Oct-12 18:23:36

I'm sure I remember something very similar to that FUN stuff from the body shop a few years ago, it was great grin

moosey you have just tempted me to look on C&E!

PersuedByPenguins Fri 05-Oct-12 18:27:46

If anyone is buying in the Iwantoneofthosecom sale check out clubcard awards first as you get double value I think!

fuzzpig Fri 05-Oct-12 18:40:44

HMV sale was pretty good too BTW. Lots reduced and lots on 2 for £10. Including Home Alone 1&2 double feature so I am very happy grin

Intrigued by the Bar of Fun - my DCs don't get much fun stuff in the bath due to DS' eczema. Would actually really like ideas for bath toys suitable for 3 and 5yo - most toys in ELC etc are babyish.

I am also planning on getting the edible massage bar in lush for DH's stocking wink

fuzzpig Fri 05-Oct-12 18:41:55

I was given a food hamper from C&E as a wedding present - their jams and marmalades are gorgeous smile

loubielou31 Fri 05-Oct-12 22:33:08

needanswers my younger dd who is nearly three plays with the camper van just as happily as the older one, they play with it nicely together, putting the dolls to bed mainly. It's not as robust as fisher price little people for example and would break if treated roughly I suspect so it depends how careful your dd is.

BlameItOnTheCuervo Fri 05-Oct-12 22:35:29

harry potter character encyclopedia 3.99 and characters of the magical world 4.99

both with a mini-figure, and, as before FREE130 gives free delivery, or free delivery over £15 anyway.

doublecakeplease Fri 05-Oct-12 22:39:31

Thanks for the Joules code smile

Probably more for us (or kids' shoes?) 20% off at Clarks using 'boost' code.

Be careful though - I couldn't find the code box and pressed order hoping it'd be on the next screen. Have just emailed asking if I can retract. Haven't paid as it's store delivery but don't want the hassle of having to go in to cancel and re-order!

IveNoIntentionOfMakingCupcakes Fri 05-Oct-12 22:44:17

Thank you to whoever introduced dotcomgiftshop -it's fab!

I'm getting a bit carried away filling me basket on there but before I buy I can't remember if anyone mentioned a code? Ta

Badvoc, we take the dog for a walk on christmas eve, usually at about 5pm. while we are out our neighbour Jack Frost leaves a parcel containing pyjamas, a book and a note telling ds that the big man is on his way, so best go to bed!!

Jack Frost also checks on all the children periodically and reports back to FC. thats why we get frosty mornings

Badvoc Fri 05-Oct-12 23:05:17

Elizabeth22 Sat 06-Oct-12 10:49:59

Tried three cards with the Joules site - in the end had to ring them up as their site clearly not doing anything. Know others have been having problems. But it is worth the hassle - am very pleased with the pyjamas I've ordered.

It's the presents for adults that I'm struggling the most to get bargains for. Kids seem easy! So thanks for the heads up on this one.

I've just tried the elc code 15for50 but no luck. Do you know if it's supposed to work with the 20% off currently off all toys?


ChristmasKate Sat 06-Oct-12 16:01:07

Not sure, I found it on a my vouchers website, maybe it doesn't work on discounted items?

Does anyone know of any deals on Crayola? I'm looking for the mosaic packs.....

Was the Argos vouchers offer to be next weekend? I can't see it on the website - waiting to buy a kindle and mini fridge.

BlameItOnTheCuervo Sat 06-Oct-12 18:29:19

I'm sure I saw hungry hippos in home bargains.

oreocrumbs Sat 06-Oct-12 18:33:47

The argos thing is meant to start 'next week' from the site I saw it on. From that I take it to mean from monday 8th onwards, or starting at some point that week. I don't have any further info on that. It was posted by an argos employee who was looking at 'next weeks' offers and giving a heads up.

You could buy it now, and if they start the vouchers next week take it back, get a refund and re buy it to qualify for the vouchers.

TheAngelshavetheOod Sat 06-Oct-12 18:36:40
