Afrodizzywonders Thu 22-Nov-12 18:58:51

Who was I kidding!! I can't stay away, got 2 presents left to get, SIL who recently had her first babber and a good friend who has been helping me with my business after I moved miles away in the middle of nowhere from a big city. Off to scout some deals and shall report back.

Last year, around mid December m&s did half price hampers....what's the probability of that happening again?

milkymocha Thu 22-Nov-12 19:05:32

Fabulous smile

You have done wonders keeping this up to date. Well done and thank you. Have a wine. I must stop looking soon though as I am nearly done and it would undo all the good work to get tempted by more!

rhondajean Thu 22-Nov-12 19:14:43

I really should ignore this, I am now down to half a dozen very specific gifts to get but I can't help myself...

The WHSmith book bundles are back in stock. I've just bought picture books and pre-school books £12.99 each. Couldn't get any codes to work but went through Quidco and got 5% and free delivery (over £15 spend). Each bundle is different, I'm going to split them between grandparents, bro and to some friends.

My DD is loving the Winter Wonderland bundle from Book People. Her face lights up when I bring out a new book.
