Tescos have the big chocolate tins for £5 in stock now. I remember last year there was a shortage of celebrations so best stock up now before the prices increase.

Johnworf my mum fills hers to the brim with boiling water

I also found these that hold up to 1 litre that are also quite cheap. All I'm wondering is how you sterilise. I normally put jam jars in the oven for 5 minutes but these have rubber stoppers and I'm worried they'd perish if I heat them up.

I also have a Pinterest Christmas inspiration board and a making stuff for gifts board.

Has anyone made homemade fruit vodka (or gin)? I'm going to do blackberry vodka for presents. I'm wondering if these bottles will be suitable?

Actually, forget my last post - No More Socks doesn't seem to work on the iPad.

I'm currently using Quick Christmas List app and really like it.

Not sure if it's the same as Lauren's but there's an app called No More Socks which I think does the same thing. HTH

Right ladies I need help for my DD's 1st birthday. Suggestions please smile thanks in advance

Boots have aome Odile and Fleu jewelry reduced. For example I got a £ 17necklace for three quid!

It's worth keeping an eye on Hot Uk Deals website and Money saving expert for bargains.

Thanks mouse smile (and now I'm humming the windmill song thanks to your name - that takes me back!)

Fuzz, try Sainsburys for dressing up outfits, especially when have 25% off clothing. My girls have vast collection from there from Disney through to pirates and goldilocks! Big selection online as well. Bit on the small size though so I always buy size up. Good quality as well

johnworf Thu 04-Jul-13 09:49:34

I bought my first present y'day from John Lewis; A nook e-reader for my grown up DD.

I always buy my cards/wrap in the Jan sales.

fuzzpig Thu 04-Jul-13 09:12:30

I'd like to know too Lauren smile

DD has already decided what she wants to get DS for Xmas - a Fix it Felix outfit (from Wreck it Ralph). She also would like a dressing up dress herself as she has outgrown her Disney one (is 6 but very tall) any ideas please? Where is good for that kind of thing (will have a look in Disney store obv but it's £££ in there) smile

JaquelineHyde Thu 04-Jul-13 06:58:38

Lauren what is that app called? I could do with something like that.

raisah Thu 04-Jul-13 05:27:18

Mothercare has reduced happyland sets to £2.50 & £4.00. They have also got good discounts on toys, clothes & footwear.

Elainey1609 Wed 03-Jul-13 23:29:41

Ok so just ordered 2 pashminas I may get burnt and they are crap
but lets cross our fingers.

Play-doh Swirling Shake Shop

Reeduced from £16.99 to £7.53 with free delivery. Theyre reduced in ELC at the moment but still around £13 in there.

I just forget, but it's lovely to one a drawer in march and find something new for someone wink

buildingmycorestrength Wed 26-Jun-13 10:57:40

I have it on Google docs so my DH can also update. I live in hope.... just kidding, he does actually shop for his family a fair bit, and my brother who shares his interests.

laurenamium Wed 26-Jun-13 09:34:51

I have an app on my phone that lets me record what I've bought and who for and tells me how much I've spent smile

PearlyWhites Wed 26-Jun-13 08:58:43
