Christmas at Poundland

It’s been over two years since I became an ambassador for Poundland and it’s no secret that I love the place especially at the most expensive time of year, Christmas. This Christmas Poundland have set me three challenges.  To create one look from there Christmas ranges, get crafty and creative something festive and stock up of stocking fillers and to do it all for under £30!

This year most of the kiddywinks stocking fillers have come from Poundland that I have stashed away during the year, complete bargains including Disney Cars Squinkies for Joseph and Polly Pocket blind bags for Imogen.  My most recent haul included this impressive bundle of Disney Frozen goodies which includes a hair wrap, shimmer lip balm, a 5 ring set, Anna and Elsa bath sponges and a colouring pencil set all for a pound each!

In Joseph’s stocking this year will be a Disney Toy Story 3 hardback book and two Microblox festive characters, Santa and a Snowman.

They’ll also have one each of these lovely Nestle festive figures, both a pound each a massive 50% saving compared to the supermarket’s price of £1.50.

My second challenge was to get decorating using one of the many different Christmas themes available from Poundland.  I decided to decorate our hall as it always seems get neglected at Christmas and lacks a little sparkle.  I chose the Cosy Christmas range as the base colours of blue, cream and read with a splash of grey fitted in well with the colour scheme.

I picked our the Merry Christmas felt banner, wood and felt Noel letter decoration, star lanterns and hanging felt decorations as well pack of 10 baubles.  I filled an old glass jar with the baubles and a set of LED battery operated lights and I think it makes a really nice feature.

I also decided to have a little bit of fun with some soft toys, a snow blanket, a couple of icicle drapes and some more LED batteries operated lights……

The last of my challenges wasn’t the easiest as I’m not a particularly crafty person.  After some time spend on Pinterest I decided that I’d attempt to make a photo frame wreath.  Armed with a white ornate photo frame, some pretty ribbon baubles (again from the Cosy Christmas range), a spool of festive trim and a couple of left over baubles from my bauble jam jar I got to it.

Photo Frame WreathI spent a total of £28 topping up the kiddywinks stockings and fully decorating my hall leaving me a couple of pounds to get a chocolate mould from the infamous Jane Asher baking range and to try out Poundland’s new Make Up gallery range, the Gorgeous Flawless foundation is awesome and a steal at just a pound!

If you’re searching for Christmas inspiration then there’s some great, easy to make gift ideas on the Poundland Youtube channel.

Back to School with Poundland #PoundandB2S

You may have noticed a bit of a theme on the blog recently as we, along with the rest of the country, prepare to send our little ones back to school.  Our latest challenge as Poundland Ambassadors was to kit Imogen out for her start in year one Poundland style!

We took our trip to our local store yesterday, and unfortunately got caught in the middle of a thunder storm, and I was amazed at what they had to offer.

Back to School with PoundlandThere’s a great range of stationary all at 3 for £1 and that includes everything from note books, poster paint, pens, pencils, felt tips pens and even sticky back plastic for covering books!

Saying “I Love You” Needn’t cost a Fortune with Poundland

I’m not one for spending a fortune on Valentine’s day and certainly don’t expect it from Tony.  Afterall, who has the spare cash these days?  As a Poundland ambassador, Poundland sent me a variety of their Valentine’s goodies to prove that you don’t have to spend a fortune on gift’s for your loved one this Valentines.

My bundle of goodies was presented in a plastic gift bag and included a card, teddy, LED pink heart lights, floating candles, a cupcake decorating kit and heart shaped champagne flutes.

Valentine's Goodies from Poundland

Imogen is very taken with the Pink LED heart shaped lights and they were quickly whipped away to drape over the top of her bookcase and Joseph has stolen the teddy to add to his ever growing collection.  My favourite item is the cupcake decorating kit, which contains cupcake cases and little picks to stand in the top, a great way to make a home made gift that extra bit special.

Poundland Valentine's

Together with the gift bag this little lot would set you back all of £7.00, less than the price of a decent bottle of wine and certainly less than a bunch of supermarket flowers and that is why we Poundland Valentine's

Poundland.

Happy Valentine’s Day :)
