I was recently given a heads-up about a series of festive discounts coming from Voucher Express, which will give people everywhere a chance to scoop some money off at a number of big high street retailers.
The promotion is called ’12 Days of Christmas’ and from Monday, November 24 the doors of their online advent calendar will start to open and reveal new discounts. The contents of each door are a mystery at the moment, but I have been given some clues as to what they involve.
There are discounts at two high street jewellers, a nationwide restaurant chain, cash off at many pubs up and down the country, savings on luxury spa days, free cups of coffee at a well-known café brand, money off at two big chocolate companies, and more.

In my Christmas gift round-up recently, I mentioned the above childrens’ fantasy book and got hold of a copy, and asked my 10 year old to review it. He said that he would recommend it to a 6 or 7 year old who is a good reader or under 10s with their parents if they need help reading. I tend to disagree with him as I think you’d have to be a very, very good 6 or 7 year old reader to finish this book alone.

An odd post for a bargain hunter you may think, but I have two friends who have paid out a lot while getting divorced, and so am interested in finding advice for another two who are going through divorces now ;-(.
From the two recently divorced friends one paid £40,000 in solicitor’s fees to get her ex out of her house. The other got £4,000 out of a possible £30,000 because her legal costs took up the rest.
I got hold of a sort of bible I would say for all those divorcing, whether they DIY or not – DIY Divorce and Separation, an expert guide to representing yourself. It demystifies the legal process and provides the parties involved with the know-how and confidence to handle a divorce themselves or understand what your barrister is …
While doing my research for Christmas gifts, I found this great list of wine ideas. I am always stuck on what wine works well with what occasion, so this is a really handy list and makes you sound like you know what you’re talking about if you buy one of these wines and take it as a gift ;-).
This 12 wines of Christmas list includes wines that are perfect for most special Christmas meet ups…and even goes so far as to tell you what food the wines complement. These aren’t your bargain basement plonk either, so they are rather good value for money.
Following my £10 gift idea round up last week, here is my £20 round up.
