Treat yourself or a loved one for under £20!



We briefly touched on the weather last week and I enjoyed the first snow where I live of 2017! I say snow… I think it snowed and settled and then cleared in a matter of hours! It has been especially cold at times though hasn’t it. What’s the weather like where you are?

For many of us Christmas feels like a distant memory. It came and went so swiftly along with the New Year too.

I received some beautiful gifts for Christmas including some unexpected surprises as well. I was also lucky enough to be given a voucher to spend at my favourite restaurant… well, you know me and food 😉

Maybe you were lucky enough to receive some spending money for Christmas and you’ve been browsing our website of late to treat yourself to something special. Or, perhaps you’re after a thank you gift for a best friend or loved one for hosting a fabulous Christmas.

I’ve been on the search and found a number of items all of which are under £20 including the P&P!

Where shall we begin…?

How about here… Beauty!

203705OPI and their 2 piece Avoplex to go kit. It’s brilliant, I’ve used this for years. It’s also a favourite among many of my colleagues as well as viewers. Clearly loved with 10 reviews and they’re all 5 stars! Including the P&P, it’s £19.95.

Staying with the theme of beauty and nails but a different brand this time. Award winning Leighton Denny. This is the large crystal nail file. With P&P it’s £16.95 and another item I have been using for a 216586while along with many of my colleagues.

Another type of beauty and a range which has been celebrated for over 20 years at QVC in the UK is of course Diamonique. We are so proud of this collection which if you’re not familiar with is inspired by some of the finest diamonds money can buy.

These earrings are exquisite. Each stone is the equivalent diamond weight of half a carat with a combined 1 carat. I love the contemporary setting which displays the Diamonique perfectly. The price is especially good, including the P&P, just £15.45.


Now for technology. These never fail to make me smile and they’re practical too! From Hipstreet, the flash friends 8gig USB drive. Originally in a choice of four characters but princess isn’t currently available (is she still busy in panto? Sorry, bad joke). However the other three are available including Pirate… which reminds me of a Christmas cracker joke I read… It’s ok, I’ll spare you the pain! I think this would make a great gift. Including P&P, it’s £17.45.


The evenings are slowly getting lighter which means warmer weather and gardening too! Richard Jackson’s Container Gardening hardback book comes with a signed bookmark! It’s had so many great reviews and with P&P is £17.20.


And from the outdoors to a touch of interior design. I stumbled across this brilliant offer from Home Reflections with a clearance price. The set of 3 Leaf Votives with Flameless Candles. The price with P&P is £10.91.


Finally, my search is rounded off with one of my favourite brands at QVC, Peony.

How charming is this display? The Bluebells and Narcissus in Wicker Basket. The feature price is £18.96 and the P&P is included too!


Lots of offers to be found online or via the QVC app! I think I’ll search some more!

See you soon!

Charlie 🙂

    Morning Charlie.
    Wow you didn’t have much snow did you…..we had about 2 inches and it didn’t go until we had the heavy rain on Sunday. Mind you we are REALLY high up and in the winter we get cold but boy in the summer we get the warmth. We can see a lot of the London landscape we’re that high up [ the shard, the dome, Nat West tower, even the new wembley ].
    I must take some photo’s [ when we get some descent weather….. SUMMER ].
    You have been busy looking for the bargains for less than £20. I think I’ll have to invest in the little USB stick of the dog and put all of Bella’s pictures on. I’ve just brought the spring peony of bluebells and narcissus, 1 for us and the other one to send to OZ [ for my cousin ]. They don’t get these sort of flowers.
    Take care. See you soon.
    Debby and BIG Whoof’s from bella

    Hi Debby and huge whoofs to Bella!

    So glad you treated yourself and your cousin to the Peony. I love the range – so easy and so believable!

    The little dog is fabulous – they all make me smile 🙂

    Would love to see some pictures!!

    All the best

    Charlie 🙂

    Hi Charlie – just checking your blog as I haven’t seen you on air for sometime and was worried that you had done a runner! Hope you are well? I love Peony flowers and have lots of them scattered around my home. The garden is full of bulbs, shrubs and perennial plants courtesy of Richard Jackson’s gardening shows of course. QVC was my life-line when I was ill several years ago and couldn’t drive or get out by myself. I turned on the TV and found QVC and I have been an loyal customer ever since. Take care and a big hug for your lovely dogs.
