    New thread for the 2018 season. :):)


    I was just thinking that TheLoop Dublin airport shopping (or other airports of course) could be a handy place to pick up a few beauty gifts at reduced cost since it's currently holiday time for many people.
    Most cosmetics I use are about a tenner cheaper there, and some fancy schmancy skin-creams can be up to €30 less than the retail price!

    always worth checking out the bookdepository.co.uk for free delivery worldwide and usually a lot cheaper than bricks and mortar.

    For an adult any idea what they are like for sizing?

    For women I’d say they’re on the generous side. I’m not sure about men. Kids sizes are small though.

    For anybody who has “Frozen” or “ Disney” fans in the house, this retired Hallmark Keepsake Christmas Tree Ornament is currently just under $7 plus $5 for delivery to Ireland. Retailed new at $12 and Hallmark ornaments are unavailable to buy in Ireland. Stand corrected on that!
    Bought it for my daughter, and although it’s plastic the detailing is really lovely. We got the resin Disney one and it’s much more delicate.

    Thanks for this!
    Just got a load of bits for kid presents-probably for birthdays coming up rather than for Christmas but great deals!

    John Lewis is getting ready to launch their online Christmas Shop and are flogging off the last of their stock from last year. Managed to purchase a few items over the last 2 hrs but it’s goin fast...twill probably be all gone by the time I post this!😀 https://www.johnlewis.com/ie/browse/christmas/baubles-tree-decorations/_/N-54yc

    Clinique bonus time in Arnotts at the moment. :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,199 ✭✭✭✭ freshpopcorn


    I saw Heatons have up 50% off toys!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,059 ✭✭✭ Lord Spence


    Ok,

    So over the years friends or family always seem to ask me about certain items like whats the best TV to get or Games Console to buy or where can I get that toy that seems to be sold out everywhere, well I thought a thread here would be a big help to all those christmas shoppers. The Idea is that people can throw up a request or question and then we all try and help out as much as possible to help that person get the item they are looking for or suggest a better alternative or even a cheaper option, think of it as Santa's little helpers!!!

    I'll kick off with a few sites that I use coming up to the big day.

    Obviously there is our own bargain alerts thread

    https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=346

    Hot UK Deals for all the UK bragains https://www.hotukdeals.com/

    This one is great its stock informer, keep an eye on or get alerts about the hottest item when it arrives in stock across multiple stores. This saved my skin a few years back to get a snow glow elsa. https://www.stockinformer.co.uk/

    Happy Shopping Ho Ho Ho

    Good idea, I sourced a frozen doll thing here one year and sent it home as it was sold out in Ireland. This thread has the spirit of Christmas at heart.

    It is my 1st christmas abroad so shopping should be fun!!
    I am so used to Amazon,e-bay and Smyths!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,485 ✭✭✭ Jude13


    Where are you now? better shopping or worse?

    I had a look at ordering hampers, there are some really nice once, I filtered for my location and it took all the nice ones out, anything with even a sniff of booze in them


  • Moderators, Education Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 18,860 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Moonbeam


    In Oslo,Norway ,Shopping is way worse.
    It is non EU so I do get duty free when travelling but can't bring much into the country due to import duty.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,485 ✭✭✭ Jude13


    But, but, it will be snowy!!

    I know!!
    I can not wait for all the snow.
    2 of my kids saw the snow here last year but 2 missed it so you can imagine the excitement.
    At the moment the weather is like Ireland,damp and dull.

    Quality street tubs 5euro in Tesco this week (also very handy for Hallowe'en if you get a lot of Trick-or-Treaters)


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,199 ✭✭✭✭ freshpopcorn


    I think Smyth's have a 20% off sale starting on Tuesday for about week. It includes most things apart from games, Xbox's, etc and nursery!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,059 ✭✭✭ Lord Spence

    Perfect time for toy shopping, think this is the only time smyths do this deal before Christmas.

    Nicholas Mosse has their annual online Black Friday/ weekend sale taking place.

    20% off select patterns and free postage in Ireland/ UK for the weekend only.

    Its a great opportunity to pick up Christmas gifts! I usually use this sale to pick up some of their more expensive items. Have ordered my cookie jar in old rose reduced from €62 to aprox €49. Delighted with myself! :-)
