My new favourite gift website – Flamingo Gifts

Flamingo Gifts

I was like a kid at Christmas, waiting for my parcel to arrive from Flamingo Gifts earlier this week!

I’d been asked to pick some things I’d like to receive and would be sent a few items from my list so although I knew what was on my list, I wasn’t sure exactly what I was going to be sent.

I was delighted with all that I received :o)

Mirabelle and Gorjuss

I’m a new fan of Mirabelle and Gorjuss after seeing the selection on Flamingo Gifts. Unfortunately, the handbag I reallllyyyyy wanted was out of stock 🙁 but I did get a purse, journal and pen and a lovely watermelon lip gloss.

 

Gorjuss Poppy Wood premium journal and pen – £11.69

 

I also received an owl doorstop and a tiny Russian doll. I’ve wanted a Russian doll for at least 10 years and when I saw not only a Russian doll but a tiny Russian doll, I had to add it to my list. I love all things miniature so you can imagine my excitement when I opened each doll and came to the last super tiny one!

 

Tiny Russian Doll – £10.70

 

There are loads of things I want from Flamingo Gifts and I’ve added quite a few to my Amazon wishlist!

I also ordered a couple of items for my step daughter’s birthday. They were delivered the next day which was excellent service. It’s her birthday tomorrow. I can’t share with you what I bought her unfortunately because I don’t want to spoil the surprise!

10% Off

At the time of writing there’s 10% off everything which is reflected in the above prices and postage is only 1p. Even without the promotion, postage is only 99p for orders under £34.99 and FREE on orders over that which I think is absolutely brilliant. High postage costs are what put me off ordering from some gift websites.

Flamingo Gifts will definitely be my first stop now when I need to find gorgeous birthday and Christmas gifts 🙂

Please note: I was sent the above items in return for an honest review.

Pond update

Pond Update – Ant spent last weekend and most of this week digging and lining our new pond. I can’t believe how much he got done, I expected it to take a lot longer!

He’s suffering now though, he’s aching everywhere! I reckon he’s going to be having lots of long soaks in a nice hot bath!

This part is going to be my little stream :o)

We ordered a 6×6 metre pond liner from PondKeeper  and got free underlay with it 🙂 With the postage included it cost less than £60

Ant also ordered a new pump which should hopefully be delivered today. I’m so excited!
