Holding your drink
Having a drinks party in the garden may seem like sheer folly at this time of year. But this Champagne Drinks Stick (left, £44) is a great Christmas gift. Part of the Drinker’s Collection at www.ironmade.co.uk, the Stick will jazz up your alfresco lunches and soirées when the weather warms up again.
And, until December 31, Iron Made is offering Bargain Hunter readers a 15 per cent discount on the Champagne stick and its drinker’s bench. To claim your discount you will need to telephone the order line (0845 644 7072) because the website will be showing the full price.
BIGDEAL BELLE OF THE BEDROOM
For a dazzling array of top-quality furniture and accessories at rockbottom prices, look no further than Belle Maison – the company that more than lives up to its name. Belle Maison specialises in stunning children’s furniture, but also stocks occasional pieces – all carefully sourced and lovingly crafted.
It is especially worth checking out the Clearance section of the company’s web site, where all sorts of goodies can be found at ridiculously low prices – as long as you get in there quickly. The Christmas specials are equally good this year, in particular the Cheeky Charlie Low End Heart Bed (above). Made with solid hardwood posts and hand-finished in solid soft white, the bed looks superb and, with its low end footboard, is great for smaller rooms.
Usually priced at £295, Belle Maison is offering the bed for just £195 while stock lasts. Bargains don’t get much better than this. Just enter LE101 when placing your order at www.bellemaison.com, or call 0870 850 6207 to request their new brochure.
