Quite fancy m.marksandspencer.com/mt/www.marksandspencer.com/pure-cotton-digital-snow-forest-print-bedding-set/p/p22324478 from M&S but think it might be a waste of money grin. Thinking if I got us one and my 3 children similar Christmassy themes (2 with double beds) then I'd be spending hundreds.

YABU it's horrible

George at asda has nice cheap and cheerful bedding... starts at about a tenner for a double set, washes nicely and is comfy. There's no way I could personally spend over 50 on something just for Christmas for the bed!!

I would just get the children one each from somewhere like Matalan. Or even plain linen and buy some Nordic throws

Do you mean duvet cover ? Or is this something different?

puntasticusername Thu 06-Nov-14 21:42:38

Christmas duvet covers? Seriously?

Seriously?

Man, I lead such a boring life wink :p

YABVVVU it's vile.

I had to add to this thread because it brought back memories of our first downies in the seventies! We were so exxited by these new Swedish bedding things - height of sophistication Haven't heard them called that for YEARS!

I was really hoping to see some awesome Christmas bedding that I'd end up wanting when I clicked that link. Was even leaning towards YANBU. But no, it's horrible. Really not nice. And you'd be gutted to see the price it will end up at in the sale.

I think you mean continental quilt.

Cocolepew Thu 06-Nov-14 22:27:50

I liketit but wouldn't pay that much

OraProNobis Thu 06-Nov-14 22:30:47

Lord no! Don't do it! It's awful shock

There are far cheaper ones all over the place. Not normally a primark fan but DD has a brushed 100% cotton double duvet cover and fitted sheet that cost about £25 in total. Feels quite cosy and is only going to get a few weeks use. Hers is fairly subtle grey Nordic but I think they do some photographic numbers (maybe a stag?) if your taste is in that direction.

No.

DOWNIE.

Fantastic. That just made me feel 8 again. fgrin

Just bought the Primark one for DS. Don't know if it will wash well, but it's nice and soft, was pleasantly surprised!

Patrickstarisabadbellend Thu 06-Nov-14 22:58:27

I love it grin

YANBU - I have it already, waiting for 1 December. I get excited about snow, so love the picture.

5yo DS has a £15 one from Next, which I'm sure he will love. He has ASD, and I'm hoping it might help him with transitions.

Nospringflower Thu 06-Nov-14 23:09:23

Ok ok I get it its horrible! It has good reviews though of being lovely. I try to shop 'ethically' which means no primark - think will just carry on as usual with normal sleep stuff!

IsItMeOr Thu 06-Nov-14 23:31:28

OP, it's lovely if you like it. Of course not everybody is going to like the same thing...

Whippet81 Fri 07-Nov-14 04:08:34

I love it actually. Carry on if you want it. Think I do now.

DomiKatetrix Fri 07-Nov-14 05:00:01

I like it! I'm far too stingy to spend that much though wink

H&M have some nice Xmas duvets.
