Sorry to anyone who hates Christmas chat this early! blush

Looking for somewhere affordable that does decent decorations for tree & home as well as wrapping paper and so on. Got a few decorations from last year but want something nice for home (Live with DN's so like to make an effort for them!)

I will miss BHS for wrapping paper sad

M&S usually do 3 for 2 on all their gift wrap and decos. Boots often have nice wrapping paper. For a smaller budget, try Wilkinson.

Lidl or if you are going for something else ikea. Generally get one thing (decoration) John Lewis too because it's lovely.

I usually get some nice wrapping paper from a charity catalog and then cheap stuff from pound shops if theres anything big to wrap.

I love the range for decorations. They usually have a huge Christmas section.

I always get my wrapping from the supermarkets. Im tight though and don't see the point od spending lots on something that's going to be ripped off and end up in the bin.

Thank you for your suggestions!

I'm due a trip to IKEA to look at baby stuff so will look out for Christmas decorations.

I loved the range last year - it was 2 minutes away from where I worked and I got SO much stuff from there, so was hoping for a change, but I might go have a visit and see if they have different stuff in this year. Moved jobs so not close to it anymore unfortunately.

Just looked at Wilko online and its cheap and cheerful so may pop into store if I get a chance - the £4 delivery seems a bit much, but with everything so cheap guess i shouldn't complain!

B&M do really good gift wrap, stocking filler presents, candy canes for the tree etc all cheap - paper is 99p a roll I've stocked up - and the 3m wide paper good for big presents is only slighter dearer at £1 wink quite a few home decorations too if you like the hanging nik nac type decorations.
