“Deck the halls with boughs of holly, 
Fa la la la la, la la la la.”

Repeat to fade.


Yup.   It’s that time of year just around the corner, and if you’re anything like me, Christmas is a bittersweet time.  I want to give my family everything they deserve – but it comes at a cost.

Did you know that the average amount that UK people spend on gifts alone for their immediate family is £378!  Whatever happened to getting a tangerine and a walnut!  Times really have moved on. 

For the very first time, Tesco Magazine have just launched a Christmas ezine Gift Guide which will go a long way to help out with the stresses of Christmas and what better way to celebrate this launch …. by giving away 1 x £100 Tesco voucher to one lucky reader.

How cool is that?!

The ezine is packed with shopping inspiration, fashion and party glamour and sparkling ideas for festive entertainment and, most of all, makes sure that shopping for Christmas is less stressful and more fun!  Click HERE to have a look round.


The Competition

After you’ve visited the Ezine, leave me a comment telling me what your favourite page or item is.  For example:

“I love the telescope in the Teen Boys section!“

And that’s it!

Don’t forget to leave your contact details!!!
