I got one too..bought a 30 quid Fitbit-type quite good. My second choice was nice fairy lights for the sitting room.

Nice pillows to replace saggy old ones. Chromecast to turn a non-smart telly into a smart one. Silk lines leather gloves.

Got a Samsung watch which is a bit like a Fitbit and got nice pillows and a chromecast! Great suggestions though thank you!
Was trying to find a nice serving dish bowl type thing but couldnt really see any nice ones in my price range.

Marzipan selection for Christmas?
Make up?
Gloves/scarf/hat etc?
Cup and saucer and nice tea/coffee?

You can spend them in Waitrose too, actually.

Personally, I would put it towards some ankle boots, they've got some really nice ones. Or a coat. Or perfume. Or you could buy some Christmas decorations.

Christmas decorations or a chilly's water bottle

Nice body lotion or a Xmas candle

Skog candle

I’d buy some Christmas food or wine in Waitrose.

Pyjamas you might have to put a bit too it but nice for these cold winter nights. X

I put mine towards an electric fleece throw for on my legs WFH nice and toasty and cheap to run...

bananaskinsnomnom · 28/10/2020 22:40

A really nice cosy blanket (at least it will cover part of the cost!)

£25 for John Lewis is tricky - so much costs more! When I had a gift card it had to be part payment.....

Second what someone said about PJs - or slippers, a nice new dressing gown.

A new bath towel!

Something a bit “special” for the house to look nice - say matching soap dispenser, soap dish and pot for the bathroom sink.

I ended up using my last one on a chopping board!

handbag (towards one maybe?) bra or nice undies

How can there be nothing you want!?

Onedropbeat · 29/10/2020 08:23

I’ve got some John Lewis vouchers and was going to order a Waitrose shop of all lovely wine and my favourite treats

Ghostlyglow · 29/10/2020 08:53

I'd put it towards a cashmere scarf or gloves.

JMG1234 · 29/10/2020 09:59

I think JL give you change from vouchers. So if you buy something for £16, they give you the difference in cash. Just in case that's helpful if you see something for less than the voucher value.

Totally boring but I'd buy some new tea towels or a nice candle.
