Unmissable tech and beauty this weekend!


Well, isn’t the run up to Christmas just flying on by? It happens every year but it’s always the same. We see Christmas ads in November and think it’s way too soon and then, before you know it, we’re hurtling towards the big day at speed with not enough time to prepare. The good news is we can deliver Christmas to you or even to someone else at the tap of an app! Or if you prefer, the website or phone.

All of our Today’s Special Values up to our final shipping day in time for Christmas (20th December) are being featured on Easy Payments to help you spread the cost of the season. Excellent!

Many of you will have earned yourselves a voucher to spend with us between the 5th and 20th of December and have we got some great deals for you!!

This Saturday Gatineau launch their Christmas Today’s Special Value. Of course it’s astounding value but it’s also a beautiful collection which would make a stunning gift. The set is a four-piece anti-ageing gift offering huge savings but also newness. The festive season can play havoc with our skin what with late nights and burning the candle at both ends. This collection will be perfect for you if you have age concerns but also great to give you a refreshed glow, too.

On my day off I went to visit the Gatineau training headquarters in Windsor where we discussed all the products at length and I had the chance to try them out. There’s some truly exciting technology in this package but I also love the fact it feels so pampering and beautiful. I was treated to a full Gatineau facial using the products. My skin looked glowing, clear and fresh! Isn’t it great to know these products can be used in your own home to get that fresh-from-the salon skin?

A real highlight for me is another launch product called Radiant Refreshing Jelly Mask which launches alongside our Today’s Special Value at midnight on Friday. Containing hyaluronic acid, kakadu plum, pomegranate extract and aloe vera, to name a few of the power packed ingredients, it was an incredibly soothing and comfortable product to use which felt like a quenching drink for the skin filling it with the look of plumper skin and hydrated radiance. I’d say this would be a perfect remedy for some of the dehydration we will be seeing from having the odd glass or two more than usual!

Ooh speaking of having a glass or two… let’s move on to a man who makes the best espresso martinis I’ve ever tasted in my life! Mr Lee Hohbein. Not only is he a tech talent but he knows his way around a cocktail shaker, too.

On Sunday he brings us the latest Amazon Fire offering as a Today’s Special Value. Wow. It’s pretty amazing! The price makes it so affordable to gift or as a treat for yourself but you are getting so much ‘bang for your buck’ as they say in the States! Of course the Fire is a great tablet. You can do all the things you’d expect.

Keep up with social media, emails, browse your music and photo collections, watch movies and so much more. You’ll have seen the Amazon Alexa family on QVC and if not QVC then everywhere else. Alexa is probably the world’s most famous digital personal assistant. She is built in to this tablet so you can ask for help! Maybe you’re looking for Christmas music or recipes? Perhaps you want to know if it’s going to snow on Christmas Day? Alexa can help with these questions and much, much more.

As if that wasn’t a good enough deal we also have a voucher as part of the deal to have a personalised case made! It’s so easy and it’s great fun, too, especially as a gift! Here are a couple that were personalised for me! Yes, that’s my dear little Pixiecat and the other is a photo that on air photography expert and friend, Mat Trim, took of myself and Lee many moons ago at the old Battersea studios. It’s still one of my favourite pics ever.

Don’t forget you can shop with confidence for Christmas with us as our extended money back guarantee is in place meaning that any unwanted Christmas gifts you buy can be returned up until the 25th of January. Nothing like having that peace of mind when you’re shopping. It’s so good to get a head start and not leave things to the last minute. That just causes stress and none of us want any more of that than we need, do we?

I don’t think it’s too early for Christmas cracker jokes so I have one for you before I sign off.

Q: How does Father Christmas like his pizza done?

A: Deep pan, crisp and even!

Ha ha! I love a good cracker joke, me. Please feel free to join in the festivities and leave your jokes below! I promise I’ll read them all even if I don’t get time to send a reply. I always appreciate you taking time to comment. In fact, I love it when you do.

Well, I trust you’re all keeping well and warm. I’m really looking forward to being back with you at the weekend for lots of great Christmas shopping ideas!

    Hi Catherine, as a fellow vegan, I would like to inform you that Gatineau are not a vegan or cruelty free brand, neither are many others sold at QVC. Of course, it is a choice to chose cruelty free products or not. Take care of yourself.
