A spin off from reastie's fabulous christmas online bargains thread. This one is for sharing bargains for birthday/treats for kids and adults.

I bought an Eve Lom gift set in John Lewis for a present. It was £48. I caNt remember the original price but it was at least £20 quid off. F
I can't see it on the website though.

Polly Pocket Flip N Fun Hotel, £24.99 instead of £49.99 at amazon, argos have it too in store only but I couldn't get it at my local store, nor could I get it at home bargains.

Dorothy Perkins, not as much in the sale now but I waited until they were offering up to 70% off plus additional 15% off at checkout, then I did a search and found a 10% off code which worked, £152 of clothes for £40, jumpers and cardigans all round for everyone next christmas, including one for myself now.

I got rolls of 4m wrapping paper from M&S last year for 25p a roll and used a free delivery code but couldn't get any this year but Tesco Direct had 5m rolls for 63p so stocked up on xmas paper and plain foil colours for all year round as well as a few gift sets reduced to £3 and also some cheap xmas ornaments - which make ideal gifts as no one really knows what you've spent. Oh and crackers.

Matalan and George at Asda were great for odds and ends and more clothing and slippers to put away which were all half price or less.

Last year it was pjs all round with Next reducing them from £25 to £10 but this year all I got from Next was some boots for myself from £25 to £8, sunglasses and boxers for DH birthday.

Oh just taken delivery of a parcel (how exciting!), last christmas DD5 wanted one of those doll sets where you get a high chair, baby carrier, baby seat etc but I needed one without a pushchair and I found one at Very and K&co but by the time I decided just to get one they went out of stock so I have kept a look out and they got them back in and on sale at £12.50 + £3.99 delivery at Very and £15.50 with free delivery at K&co. It changes from a high chair to baby chair to baby carrier to swing, it has very few pieces and folds up and doesnt take up too much space. Lovely pink colour, quality seems great and easy enough for an adult to clip together. I couldn't see them on the website before but if anyone is interested I would keep an eye out, much better than the £34.99 I was going to pay for Baby Born brand. This one is the Lissi brand and was a bargain at full price but both times i've seen it, it has been on sale.

Instore at Toysrus we've just found the Zhuzhu hamster battle jet with a hamster included for just two quid. Have bought several for 5 year old boy birthdays. Probably too random for most of you, but just in case!

John Greed are a great company. I have ordered lots from them.

I once had to return a childs bracelet that I had ordered in the wrong size and the turn around time from me sending it, to receiving the new one was just 3 days.

Just browsed the Next sale again and it looks so much better than it did after christmas, mens christmas jumpers down from £25 to £10, lots of items sold out while I was browsing and my whole basket emptied, the good news was however I saved £40 as a result but got a few bargains I really wanted.
