Christmas is an expensive time of year and like most I do my best to make my hard earned cash go just that little bit further, especially at this time of year. Poundland have, yet again, come up trumps with a massive selection of festive goodies all for a pound!
As a Poundland ambassador I was sent to my local store armed with £20 to get some Christmas essentials. This is my haul!
This year the Poundland Christmas range is as impressive as ever with cards, stocking fillers, decorations, gifts, sweets, selection boxes, and gift bags and 1 each. Some of the items I brought include Make Your Own Christmas Cracker Set (bad jokes included), Christmas Pudding Money Bank Baubles, Individual Christmas Cupcake Boxes – great for homemade teacher presents (6 pack), Tree Decorations, Christmas Crackers and a wooden Christmas Skipping Rope.
We have two Christmas trees this year and so were in desperate need of more decorations for them, there are some lovely themes to Poundland’s selection including Nordic, Vintage, Winter Wonderland and Brights. We chose items from the Brights range to decorate our dining room tree including 24 mini baubles, 4 butterfly and poinsettia clip on decorations and glittery “Noel” hanging decorations.
The tree in our lounge is more traditionally coloured with decorations for the kiddywinks such as homemade felt decorations, candy canes, mini teddy bears and little wooden trains so these little robins with their woolly hats fitted in very well and there are three for just a £1.
I have to say that I was probably most impressed with the range of gift wrap at Poundland. As well as some great value wrapping paper (10 metres for a £1), gift bows (25 pack) and curling ribbon (10 pack), there is a HUGE range of gift bags from extra large to three packs of smaller ones with tags. I brought the luxury gift bags to wrap the awkward “hampers” that the kiddywinks and I had put together for their Nanas. They are filled tea cup planters so difficult to wrap but the gift bag was perfect. It has two cellophane bags (one clear, one opaque) and a bow and looks a lot like a giant Lindt choccie!
