Pretty please. With sugar on top?

I asked dad weeks ago if he needed me to order anything for them, then this evening mum (who has dementia) has decided that she wants a present from him, and he needs me to get her earrings. Hoop as she fiddles with butterfly backs and loses them.

Budget up to £400. Not too big, can be gold/rose gold or a mixture. I'll need to order online.

I'll be eternally grateful

Have a look at QVC. If you order by midnight they guarantee xmas delivery. Some expensive brands.

Thanks, I hadn't thought of them!

Argos? Is that rubbish?

Thought I'd hit the jackpot on QVC with some clogagh ones like a ring she has, but alas a butterfly back.

I'll try Argos now!

Argos didn't have anything, and Stella and Dot are past christmas delivery

Look on Amazon, they sell masses of jewellery on there and you can prob still pay for special delivery

Not on the high street? They may still be guaranteeing delivery, not sure.

Still drawing a blank tbh.

Thank you for the ideas though, its helping me to stop panicking!

Selfridges/Fenwicks/John Lewis?

John Lewis might be able to deliver to a local Waitrose in time.

Thanks all, I eventually found some at Goldsmiths, and they were delivered today and dad is pleased with them, which is a result
