What would you get from Cath Kidston if you had to?

I have got a gift card from an internet refund in store last summer.

I went and bought a bag the other day but don't really like it (in fact I got two, and don't like either)

So they are going back
but what to actually get? I get the feeling a lot of it is overpriced, under-quality stuff that's just basically fashionable tat, but what I like to buy is stuff that is nice quality, and not just 'image' based - something that is good and will last.

So what would you recommend from Cath's? I have got about £65 to spend.

Soap. It's practical and doesn't look shite when unwrapped like most of their stuff.

I just bought dd the duck egg duvet cover as it matches her room but I hate the pink flowery stuff

I have a pair of pjs (well, the trousers), and a thin cotton dressing gown. Love both. Also have a zip up Kindle pouch. I like the baby stuff - do you know anyone pregnant who you might need to buy a gift for?

I have some bone china mugs that are still going strong 8 years on!

The wool scarves are lovely.

I really want a sewing box, but they are a bit pricey.

If you have any tiny nieces with birthdays coming up, the tea set in a little suitcase is really sweet.

You are right it is tat and I would be really hard pushed to buy anything. I would probably use the money to stock up on presents for others- how about some pjs or back packs for little ones.

I got the Stanley salt and pepper shakers for Christmas. They are v.nice.

The big mugs are great, a really good amount of tea but I don't have anything else.

tea towels, oven glove and oil cloth to herald in spring!

nothing to wear.

The plimsolls are great quality and made by converse apparently.

Pjs or dressing gown. Their clothes are dire

Won't use up £65, but I am evangelical about the

Get the mushroom dress, it's so cool!

Bedding looks nice til you have to launder it, then it looks crap without precision ironing. Quite like the towels and also like the bird prints scarf or brolly.

The sewing boxes are beautiful. I just inherited about 20 tons of old sewing equipment, button tins and material from my Granny though so not sure I can take any more!

Rooners Thu 02-Jan-14 11:47:51

I think I am all bagged out really but the holdalls are really nice.

I also like the Space duvet set but it looks to be sold out. I wonder if the shop has got any left.

It's a bit ££ but if you've got to spend the money on something, it makes sense to get something nice.

Sewing box. I am not a CK fan but I love my sewing box.

Kikithecat Thu 02-Jan-14 11:45:18

A duvet set should use up your £65

madmomma Thu 02-Jan-14 10:53:31

the bird print is lovely. I'd get a purse in that print. Or maybe the weekend bag

Lurleene Thu 02-Jan-14 10:52:44

How about luggage? The shop sells some pretty weekend / overnight bags for around that price mark.

Rooners Thu 02-Jan-14 10:50:46

This is it, the stuff is nice but for the price it is a bit, well, it's just overpriced basically.

The only thing I REALLY like is the digital wallpaper. That's like £150 a roll I think or something though.

I like the big spotty bags but they had run out in the nicer colours.
