Half-price gift boxes, storage savings and baby essentials for less


If you’re an avid bargain hunter, you already know that the Post-Christmas Sale is a great opportunity to treat yourself with massive savings on gift boxes that stores are begging to get rid of. If there are big boots near you, it’s worth coming early this morning as all seasonal gift sets will be cut to half the price. One of our favorites is the A Story of Aimee’s Sculpted By Aimee Connolly Christmas Gift Set which is reduced to € 19.50 (originally € 39) and includes a mini pearl beauty base, the Cream Luxe Duo Bronze & Highlight, a mini foundation brush and a Liquid Lights blush in Rosy Glow. If you’re staying at home this year, check out Feelunique which is offering up to 50% off select products or Space NK which is offering up to 30% off top brands like Drunk Elephant, IT Cosmetics, Paula’s Choice and Charlotte Tilbury.

Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Eau De Parfum

Receive a third-party discount on a selection of premium fragrance sets at Boots, including the iconic Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum available in a 50ml gift set accompanied by a 10ml travel spray for 59 , 33 € (instead of 89 €).

Pack it up

We don’t want to think about it yet, but what goes up must come down, and the same goes with Christmas decorations. Luckily, Aldi has some great value storage boxes in store today, which might make things a little easier.

They also have super handy 32L under-bed storage boxes with black, gray or clear lids for just € 4.49.
