– review and win £25 to spend

Did you know that Christmas is just a mere 14 weeks away? That means to be organised, we need to start thinking about buying gifts around about now! I don’t know about you but these days I do around 80% of my Christmas shopping online. I spend time scouring the internet for the best deals and I love looking for unique gifts too. I love the fact I can do this in the comfort of my own home and don’t have to battle the Christmas rush in stores. is an online store which stocks a wide range of products. From gadgets, home accessories, personalised gifts – there is literally a gift for any occasion. We were asked to pick out a few items to try out their service and below are the items we went with.

Scrabble Lights scrabble-lights

As soon as I saw these lights I just knew I had to have them! Pre-children Mr H and I loved playing Scrabble so I thought it was the perfect way to pay homage to our pre-children days. They come with a pack of re-usable stickers that you can stick in front of the lights to create your messages.

scrabble-lights-wall scrabble-lights-pic

I love the way they look and I think it would make a great alternative to Birthday banners for parties. It comes with a generous 2-metre cable with a USB end and costs £25.99. It’s worth noting that the plug was an EU one so I did have to use a separate USB plug instead.

Letter banner


In addition to the Scrabble lights, I saw this letter banner whilst browsing and thought they would complement each other really well. I have seen other people have a Black & White version of this Letter Banner but I love the fact these are so bright and colourful as it really cheers up my dining room!


They come in a pack with 100 letters, numbers and symbols which allows you the freedom to create any number of messages. They are easily connected together with paper fasteners and for £6.99 I think it’s a bargain because you can use them again and again.


Bottle Opener Fridge Magnet


I have been wanting to buy one of these for Mr H for ages. Quite simply because I get a little sick and tired of him asking me where the bottle opener is every time he wants to open a beer. It’s always in the same place (top drawer) but he can never seem to find it. This clever Bottle Opener Fridge Magnet solves the problem and is so easy to use. The magnet on it is super strong so you don’t have to worry about pulling it off the fridge. The Bottler Opener Fridge Magnet costs £16.99.

Overall, I found the website really clear and easy to use. You can easily search for gifts under Experiences, Occasion or who you are looking to buy a gift for and prices are really reasonable. If you spend over £50 you also qualify for free next day delivery too so this would be a great place to start your Christmas shopping!
