I want the beauty calendar so ‘need’ to spend another £35 there. I’ve been traveling the website and not feeling inspired.

(Don’t you dare suggest the pink dress!)

They have some really nice boots at the moment which are not too expensive. I saw some gorgeous navy ones.

Agree shoes and boots are often good.

I bought several dull work tops - polo necks in 3 colours.

I have 20% off bras, jumpers, and nightwear on my Sparks card. Don't know if both offers can be used together, don't see why not.

MsJaneAusten Thu 09-Nov-17 21:16:06

Ooh, I didn’t think of shoes. I’ll take a look...

Tights, tights & more tights?

MsJaneAusten Thu 09-Nov-17 21:23:17

Does food count? I think it has to be home/beauty/fashion...

I bought the Sleep Cream which excellent and the Rose Gold perfume, which has had great reviews. The boots do look nice as well.

They had some lovely blouses in, but they were polyester if that bothers you.

I bought MIL some slippers, pants and tights, pretty boring really.

It doesn’t really matter as you can return the item/s and keep the calendar.
But anything that is on offer, the original
price counts towards your £35 spend. So 342 on pants. Or something 1/2 price.

Every year people talk of returning their purchases and keeping the advent calendar, but I've not done it myself.

Ankle boots

SpongeBobJudgeyPants Thu 09-Nov-17 21:28:38

Food doesn't count, sadly.

Last year I got some nice stocking fillers and smellies and candles as gifts in the 3 for 2. Easily adds up!

LulusMiniEgg Thu 09-Nov-17 21:30:36

So annoying, I spent a bloody fortune on post bf underwear a week ago before this advent calendar came out. Grrr.....

ILikeyourHairyHands Thu 09-Nov-17 21:32:29

REN skincare.

Children's underwear.

I think homeware counts.

DS is going on a residential with school so I got him some joggers, thermals and some long sleeved t-shirts that I was going to buy anyway.

SolemnlyFarts Thu 09-Nov-17 21:35:27

I got tights and a cup... and a hidden support vest which I hope is good finally getting rid of the saggy breastfeeding vests if this works out

Whatthefoxgoingon Thu 09-Nov-17 21:36:19

Massive REN Moroccan rose body wash and a pair of pants. Done!

Cakescakescakes Thu 09-Nov-17 21:37:48

School uniform in the next size up! Would need to buy it eventually anyway b

Sentimentallentil Thu 09-Nov-17 21:40:23

I got some candles for gifts and some Christmas cards.

MinnieMinchkin Thu 09-Nov-17 21:44:17

The lovely long leather gloves in black or berry.

MsJaneAusten Thu 09-Nov-17 21:48:10

Actually yes, last year I bought a dressing gown and returned it. Plan!

MsJaneAusten Thu 09-Nov-17 21:48:24

Can I buy it online and return to store?
