Published 22 November 2012 by Linzi Nuttall
Looking for the ideal gift for Mum this Christmas? Well look no further. Here's our pick of some of the best seasonal savings and deals online.
With just over a month until Christmas, I've tracked down some of the best deals around on gifts for Mum - saving you time and money when it comes to ticking off the items on your festive shopping list.
I've found some great money-saving offers on everything from spa days to jewellery and a whole host of things in between, so whatever your Mum likes, she should find something she'll love under the tree this year!
Remember that all offers are subject to each store's own terms and conditions - and could be changed or removed at the retailer's discretion (particularly where an expiry date is not stated). All the deals featured were accurate on 21/11/2012 and based on online prices - so bear in mind prices in store could be different.
It's worth keeping an eye on Amazon.co.uk this weekend, as their Black Friday Discount Week (which ends on Sunday 25th November) is offering huge reductions on all kinds of items. For example, right now you could get Vera Wang Look Eau de Parfum Spray for Women (100ml) for £21.40 - a massive saving on the £72 RRP. Isn't that amazing?! But bear in mind that these offers could sell out fast, so bag a bargain while you can!
At ThePerfumeShop.com, you can save £19 on Gucci Rush (50ml) - RRP £49, now £29.99.
At Wahanda.com, they have all kinds of deals at hair salons across the UK, so you could knock £s off your Mum's bill on everything from a cut & blow dry to colouring & highlights. Click here to find your nearest salon. At Amazon.co.uk, you can get a Babyliss Waving Wand for £20 - a saving of more than £10 on the original price (£30.64).
JohnLewis.com has some great jewellery offers, including a Topaz Cross Necklace, reduced from £350 to £175; and a Silver Butterfly Charm Bracelet - was £130, now £91. Or, if you want to treat your Mum to something a bit more 'bling', HSamuel.co.uk has some big savings on jewellery, such as £10 off a pair of Mother of Pearl Crystal-look Earrings (now £29.99) or £15 off a Topaz Figure of Eight Pendant (was £59.99, now £44.99).
At Prezzybox.com, they have all kinds of novelty items that could make great stocking fillers. You could choose from a Chocolate Fountain, reduced from £39.95 to £32.95, a Handbag Organiser (was £24.99, now £19.95) or a snuggly Slanket, which was originally £29.95 and is now down to £24.95.
Why not treat your Mum to something with a personal touch? At Hallmark.co.uk, you can get 30% off personalised gifts - from mugs and candles to trinket boxes and chocolate. All you need to do is enter the code XMAS30 at the checkout.
If your Mum is never out of the kitchen, she might look forward to finding a Kenwood Premier Chef under the tree this year - and at Currys.co.uk, you can get one for £179, saving you a huge £195.99 on the RRP. And for a stocking filler that provides the finishing touch, you could head over to Poundland.co.uk and get her a 'Best Mum' apron and oven glove for only £1 each.
For sweet-toothed Mums, Thorntons.co.uk have a half-price offer on Thorntons Continental Special Edition - down from £19.99 to £9.99. Baileys Irish Cream makes a great festive tipple, and at Tesco.com you can get a litre bottle for £12 - down from £20.
Why not give your Mum a well-earned break and some serious pampering with a 2 for 1 Bannatyne spa day getaway for £65 - saving you 50% on the original cost. And with that extra place, you could go along too for double the fun!
