    The Christmas Present Thread 2012

    Come on, it's time to stop being in denial. Christmas is a mere 5 weeks away and many of us haven't either started or finished shopping for presents. What I want this thread to do is to get members to highlight any good offers (not just good ideas) they may see either online or from flyers put through your door. I'm going to open this up with this from Maplin:

    1. Sennheiser 218 Headphones. Down from £39.99 to £19.99. Sweet!: Sennheiser HD218 (Closed-back on-ear Stereo headphone) : Sennheiser Headphones : Maplin Electronics

    This thread is all about saving money and not wasting it when it comes to presents, so over to you

    Sorry, but if it's Firebox, it has to be the Batmobile
    Replica Batmobile - buy at Firebox.com

    And it's more affordable than the RV!

    I use HotUKDeals - Deals, Discounts & Voucher Codes before I shop online. Had some good deals on there in the past.

    I second Groupon, and also mention Living Social and Wowcher.
    You have to cross-check to make sure you are getting a good deal but I have certainly had some great things from them

    Kindle Fire at £99 Kindle Fire: Amazon.com's #1 best-seller, now even better

    Part of the Black Friday sale already mentioned.

    Guess who bought one from Argos at £129 last week?
