Welcome all to the 2018 Christmas bargain threads. Once it gets underway I’ll start compiling some of the main links to put in the next thread, if you have a link you’d like me to stick in please let me know.

I woke up feeling really grumpy today but this has renewed my happy spirit grin

Woohoo! And so it begins... grin

Thanks Reastie!

And there was me wondering how to fill my Love Islandless time - shopping bargains it is! Thanks to the poster on the Hatchimals nursery £10 off tip - present 1 purchased.

I’m on the look out for a 1m+ unicorn for DD2 if anyone sees ones. She is eyeing up DD1’s Robert now she is 2.5. Robert was such a bargain a few years ago (Although as a few if you may remember, I was a bit disappointed by the length of his horn...) grin

Definitely following these threads! We are buying and moving into a house that will be ready in December, so to say Christmas will be on the tight side is a slight understatement!

Hi all. Settling in for year 4 with you! Made a list last night of who to buy for feeling a bit clueless about what to get people this year!!

How to make my morning. Searched for the old thread to make sure I didn’t miss Reasties return and it’s here!

My first year joining this and I hope it inspires me to become more organised for Christmas, DS will be 2 on the 23rd December so lots to get!

Notasyoungasiwas Sun 05-Aug-18 08:23:47

Just come over from the prequel - first year for me too! 🎅🏻

woodwaj Sun 05-Aug-18 08:25:40

Best price on boggle and a everyone needs a train for the tree?!

MissRainbowBrite Sun 05-Aug-18 08:28:11

Yay, first Christmas Bargains thread.

Badgerface Home Bargains is the best place for a giant Robert unicorn. They have a medium one and extra large which is usually about £20 if I remember correctly.

Amazon also doing a 3 for 2

and you don't need to leave the house unlike Argos

Love a good Christmas bargain! We're seriously cutting down this year tho we just can't afford it with new baby coming too.
Plus we just get over-run with stuff we don't actually need and just buy to wrap up to be opened!!

imsorryiasked Sun 05-Aug-18 08:36:11

Mm thanks for the cake Reastie

Argos have 3 for 2 on loads of toys including lego
Designafriend and bikes & scooters

RuggerHug Sun 05-Aug-18 08:38:19

Yes yes YES!!! I always end up seeing these too late so hopefully this year I'll be able to get sorted. I have a fair bit done already but already got twitchy at the spreadsheet yesterday when I saw what was left!

yourmyforever Sun 05-Aug-18 08:40:07

Marking my place.. these threads saved me from lots of panic buying last year!

justtowarm Sun 05-Aug-18 08:44:49

I love these threads smile

Playmobil farm advent calendar 12.99 in the Argos clearance on eBay smile

Not a super bargain but better than getting one later in the year smile

imsorryiasked Sun 05-Aug-18 08:44:58

Amazon are running a 3 for 2 promotion on toys as well follow this link

ItsNiceItsDifferentItsUnusual Sun 05-Aug-18 08:52:40

Thanks for mentions for Amazon 3 for 2. Quite a few things from my list are included.
