For this year, I have put together some Valentine’s gift ideas and tried to stayed under £15. As per my Home Bargains Valentine’s post, why not put these or other items together and make a gift basket? If you are on a big budget, look out for yellow stickers in the plant sections of supermarkets like Co-op as they are selling off potted plants, and there is always M&S for Dine in for Two for a romantic meal, or Poundland for bits and pieces. There is so much to choose from that I put together a list of my favourite ideas here with images underneath.
7th Heaven face and hair masks
I use these face masks and believe they’d make great gifts. 7th Heaven develops beauty and spa products such as face masks, hair …

With party season around the corner, are you ready to look your best? Here are five quick beauty tips that should save you money and time.
- At home body scrubs: You can easily get silky, smooth skin at home with a homemade body scrub: mix one part olive oil with two parts sugar or salt, then add a few drops of an essential oil (try lavender or grapefruit). Gently massage over your arms and legs before your next shower, then rinse off with warm water.
- Invest in a razor subscription: We all know how much razors can cost and we never know when to purchase a new one. The Dorco Eve 6 razor for women, from £5.45, promises some of the best razor technology around. Not only do Dorco offer exceptional value including free
Yes, you read it right. Did you know that Office has an eBay store, where it sells ex-display and slightly defect shoes online? Well it does.
The shoes start at 99p, and a standard £3.50 postage charge, though they offer a combined shipping discout of up to 10 items, and international shipping from £5. They run both auctions and buy it now. For buy it now, you can shop full price, sale or ex-display.
Office has a listing called New with Defects, which means that it may be in one of the following categories:

Brow bars scare me a little bit, with their prices of £13 – £15 for an eyebrow thread. I can’t be bothered to travel down to the Asian areas to get dirt cheap threading, but Superdrug really suprises me, as they thread for £5.
I get my threading done for a fiver there…the set up is a little bit wierd. You pay up front at the normal till, and then you head to the middle or back of the shop with your receipt, and get your eyebrows done in the store…there is a nice chair, but you are in a store! No barriers, people walking past…
Frankly no one seems to mind and when I see it being done I just walk on by.
Anyway, I collect points when having it done so that’s another …
I’m an okay fan of Aldi’s Lacura skincare products…like their serum brought me out in spots so it’s a no from me, but their Caviar Illumincation Day Cream costs just £6.99 for 50 ml and is “nearly” as good as La Prarie Skin Caviar Luxe at £292! Today’s find for a body moisturiser is really good.
The Laucura spray on moisturiser – just shake up the bottle and thinly spray on…it goes on like a foam…be careful to spray somewhere like the bathroom as until you get used to it, you may end up spraying on other things.
It comes in three flavours pure oatmeal, aloe vera (with argan oil) and cocoa. It’s 200 ml for £1.99 per bottle. I agree with the packaging that it moisturises your skin and leaves it soft and silky …
A recent trip to Superdrug opened my eyes to their own range of products. I must admit when it comes to shampoos and other toiletries, I am a bit of a known brand rather than an own brand fan.
But the funny thing is that a lot of own brand products offer the same features for less. As you may know, I don’t like writing about deals too often as once they are gone. You poor pumpkins remain annoyed that you missed the offer.
So here’s a little round up of some of Superdrug’s lovely products that are low priced or regularly on offer:
