So with a few days to go, how do you get those gifts out without spending a fortune?
Costs have already no doubt been building up – from buying gifts to sending them far and wide to loved ones living away. More and more of us have friends and family who live in a different part of the country or overseas. And, if you’re anything like me with little ones to think about, you simply might not have the chance to get out of the house to get your Christmas gifts delivered on time.
Although we have less than a week before Christmas Day, there are still delivery options available. Better still – some of them will even come to you. Using a courier service is one of the fastest and cheapest ways of having …
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.

Why not start the morning with a beautifully decorated house or flat? The discount store has love heart lights (£1.99), felt heart bunting (99p), heart balloons on sticks (79p) and a pack of heart balloons for 59p.
If that’s not enough, why not sprinkle some artificial rose petals (79p) around to make your loved one’s heart go a flutter?
So you have decorated the gaff and still haven’t spent much (around a fiver), so the day can be made special with a romantic breakfast. An egg cooked in the shape of a heart in a 99p frying pan to start seems a good idea.…

Finding the perfect engagement ring is no easy task. You’ve got to ask: Is the ring too big or too small? What stone should be on it? Would your partner like it? Then, to top it all off, engagement rings are expensive – especially when we’ve got the likes of Kim Kardashian’s $8 million bling to contend with.
On average, the UK spends £573 on engagement rings but there is also the pressure of the traditional ‘two month salary’ rule that many people associate with the price of engagement rings. So, finding the perfect ring can be a stressful experience.
For many, the ‘two month salary’ rule is out of the question but, fear not, the perfect engagement ring can be found in your budget range. The below tips will help to make your partner, …

I have friends with pets and was looking around for ideas, so here are two, one for a cat and another for a dog. I got my pet loving friends to try them out:
Neater Scooper – a sanitary not cheap solution
Cleaning cat litter trays is an unpleasant but necessary job if you have cats, so this sounded like a nice, new sanitary method.
The solution, Neater Scooper from QVC, is a three in one system for scooping up waste from your cat’s litter tray, sifting it out from the litter without the usual dust cloud and then transferring it to an perfumed bag-lined receptacle for binning.
It is simple to use – just scoop up the cat poop and the litter sifts through the slats in the forked end, removing the waste from …
I looked after one of my friend’s cats recently, so wanted to find bargain cat gift ideas. When I watched them I noticed amount of hair that they left around the house and all over my clothes. So when I was offered the new JML Purrfect Arch to try, I thought fantastic, could this be a gift to help with pets’ hair moulting?
The Purrfect Arch is an arch of durable bristles sitting on a carpeted square base, Your cat can rub against and walk under the bristles to remove loose fur or scratch their own back, while the carpeted base is meant to be used as a scratch area that detracts your kitty from going for your furniture. Sounds good right! The arch also helps cut down on shedding and fur balls, massages your …
