100 quid to spend in Next

I've been given a voucher for my birthday and find the giant directory just totally overwhelming.

What would you buy with that budget?

I like some of their clothes and accessories.

Love their baby clothes. Also love cushions/pillows from Next.

Lucky you!

If you go on their website there is always lots of clearance stuff. Youll get loads of stuff for £100.

Controversially, I'd spend it on homewares instead of clothing - am always disappointed with the quality of Next clothes.

Never had a problem with Next homewares though smile

I fell a bit in love with a fruit bowl in Next a few weeks back. DH pointed out we already had an (unbearable) fruit bowl so why would we need one with two young children. I'd totally be buying that and some other bits besides ;)

Dressing gown and pyjamas (I hate Next).

GeekyWombat Sat 11-Mar-17 21:41:26

The bowl of my dreams (the pictures don't do it justice!)

Also their towels are lovely.

Clothes for my 2 DD's or a new duvet set. Like the kids stuff, don't like the adult clothing.

Maybe a handbag. Possibly underwear. Baby clothes are good.

I don't rate the women's clothes at all. Sizing is everywhere and there's too much polyester.

nomad27 Sat 11-Mar-17 21:51:00

If you don't like Next can you spend it on the brands they stock that aren't Next?

I'd do that instead. Lots of whistles, French connection, etc. Also Nike sports stuff.

macymacy Sat 11-Mar-17 22:17:22

Yes, Nomad27, you can if you shop and then pay online

Danglingmod Sat 11-Mar-17 23:40:55

Ok, a lot of the stuff in Next is a bit naff and polyester-y.

But there's plenty that's good: jeans, tights, pyjamas, bras, leggings, long length vests, some of their knitwear, linen shirts, shoes/boots.

And, yes, kids clothes and homewares.

But I wouldn't find it at all difficult to spend £100 on myself in there on decent basics.

If you need jeans I highly recommend these £18 skinny jeans in the blue colour. I bought the dark blue at Xmas time and they are brilliant jeans - they don't go baggy and they wash well. I've since bought another pair The washed black version are rubbish though, which was a huge disappointment after the blue ones being so fantastic. They go baggy quickly and haven't washed so well.

And they have lovely shoes that are kind of in between high fashion and old fashioned

Floralnomad Sun 12-Mar-17 00:20:46

They generally have some very nice lights and lamps .

Kittykatmacbill Sun 12-Mar-17 07:44:01

Kids clothes are great! Women clothes are a bit, um, nexty.

FaithAgain Sun 12-Mar-17 07:45:52

I got £50 at Christmas. I think I'm spending it on a soup maker.

ClarkWGriswold Sun 12-Mar-17 08:01:44

Their jeans are great especially the 'cigarette' style. Another vote for Homeware; I love their art work and have just bought several Hannah Cole canvases.

rachyconks Sun 12-Mar-17 08:08:35

I love their lift, slim & shape jeans. I love next, not ashamed to admit that. Never had a problem with quality! I would just go into a store and see what takes your fancy. £100 should get a complete new outfit

Okfine Sun 12-Mar-17 08:10:06

Shoes, boots, nightwear, Label stuff?

honeylou42 Sun 12-Mar-17 08:49:25

Home stuff smile

SunnyL Sun 12-Mar-17 09:59:37

I saw these nude brogues and was wondering about them but are brogues now done? I have a standing desk so like flat shoes for work but find loafers and ballet pumps a bit cold at this time of year.

BounceBounceSplishSplash Sun 12-Mar-17 10:13:45

I'd get

this perfume


this top to wear with ankle jeans and trainers or with the above shoes

this bag or this bag

BounceBounceSplishSplash Sun 12-Mar-17 10:15:57

The first bag in grey snake effect and the second bag in blue and these are the shoes
