First aftershave bargain - a very good price Davidoff adventure at the perfume shop. Is nice and is selling at over £45 on all other sites.

Am buying DP CK shock for DP, cheapest at perfume shop again, £29.99 but I'm buying from cheap smells as 6.5% CB brings it to £28.

That is his birthday and christmas aftershave sorted already grin

snowballinashoebox Tue 06-Nov-12 08:49:30

Thanks reastie, I will have to have a look at what I have and sort out my hoard.

Morning all - thanks reastie for the new thread thanks.

Also, thanks OhTheConfusion for the Stick Man recommendation. I love it and DD loves pointing to him on the pages smile

Has anyone seen (or even know if they exist) packs of Spot The Dog board books? I know The Book People do packs of paperback Spot books, but I've never seen them in board book format, with the lift the flaps etc. They're quite pricey to buy individually as board books, even with all our lovely discount codes smile


bishboschone Tue 06-Nov-12 09:48:55

Wow.. Well done OP .. Thank you .

Afrodizzywonders Tue 06-Nov-12 10:10:23

I bought my Dc this marble run for £12 on amazon, it has great reviews, sturdy etc. it's full price again now but might be worth watching to see if it drops again

Just been to my local co op of all places and they have some really sweet baking sets, silicone cooking moulds and aprons etc for kids.
I got ds2 a baking set with whisk, spatula, spoon and moulds for £3.
He loves baking so its a good stocking filler for him.
They also have some games/playdoh type stuff for £10 for 2.
