My latest task as a Poundland Ambassador is to buy Christmas essentials across a series of categories for £20. So armed with my £20 voucher I headed to my Poundland store to stock up. As ever, I was very impressed with the range in store and with everything costing a pound it is very easy to tally up what you are spending.
I fell in love with the Gingerbread Man range of goodies. I picked up a set of three melamine tumblers and three plates that would make great stocking fillers or pressies for little friends, if separated and paired up. The 3 Tier Cake Stand is such a great bargain and I can't wait to bake festive cupcakes to display on it. The pack of 3 gift bags is another great bargain. I'd love to bake my own gingerbread men and give them as gifts packaged up in these lovely bags.
I was really impressed with the snowflake design tableware. The plates, napkins and cups come in packs of twenty which is enough to cater for unexpected party guests. The cupcake set and stand will make a beautiful themed centre piece for my festive table. The bauble card holders are fantastic. Each glass ball is filled with fake snow and will stand on the table with a name card attached to let everyone know the seating plan!
When it comes to decorations, Poundland has plenty for the tree and the house. The Novelty Inflatable Santa or Snowmen are a good size and sure to delight little ones.
The gel window stickers come in a variety of designs and add a splash of festive fun to any room. They fit together like a jigsaw puzzle to build up a bigger picture and Freddy is obsessed with them!
The giant balloons are guaranteed to provide hours of entertainment as they are bashed about!
When it comes to presents, Poundland has a load of great value gift ideas for men, women and kids! From scarves, diaries, jewellery and cosmetics for her, to toiletries, mugs and socks for him, the grown-ups are well catered for. Perfect for pressies for teachers! I particularly love the cosy mug that comes with a knitted cover and the festive fur trimmed rubber gloves that add glamour to washing up! The kids have a great choice of gifts too from money boxes to toys to books to craft sets, there is so much to choose from.
I fell in love with the fun festive bag kit. A small tote bag is pre-printed with a design which can be coloured in using the felt pens that are included. I thought this would make a lovely personalised gift bag for a loved one, or a great little bag to pop in some treasures for carrying about. I loved the Little Pudding socks that come in a variety of sizes. The Milkybar selection boxes are excellent stocking fillers and examples of the top brands for sale in Poundland. They are on sale for 4 for the price of 3 which makes them 75p each. And of course Poundland also sell a range of stockings and present sacks to put them in!
Poundland stocks so much for Christmas, it really is a one stop shop for picking up lots of essentials this year. It is such good value for money and makes budgeting so much easier!!
