An evening with Homesense

On Thursday evening, my mum and I headed to Homesense for a blogger event. Drink and nibbles in hand, we browsed the aisles to check out the winter delights on offer. My mum has been a long time fan of the store and I do tag along ocasionally, but around this time of year I think it really comes into its own. Whilst I don't like the c-word (no not THAT one, roger rudemouth!) before December I have to say, the present opportunities are SO GOOD.  So, whilst it is only November and this goes against my beliefs, here are some present ideas - you really can get presents for everyone in your life!- 

                                                                    Hair & Beauty Obsessives

I think the beauty section in Homesense is such a hidden gem. There are treats galore, from bath soaks and hand creams to make-up brushes and nail kits. With Homesense being the same company as TK MAXX, you will find luxury high end brands like Cowshed and Bliss along with high street brands like Real Techniques and Models Own. They also have lovely gift sets that would cost twice the price from department stores, plus enough candles to fill your entire bedroom (a blogger's dream!) as well as cosy pyjamas, men's watches and grooming sets and acrylic make up storage. 

Book Lovers

Shelves of non-fiction books from cookery and fashion to art and music will excite anyone who loves a good read. I personally love the colouring books - very popular right now and they do look like a lovely way to spend an hour. 

Home birds

LOVE these bookends oh so much

For anyone who is furnishing their own home you can find lovely little knick knacks including lush faux fur throws, pretty mirrors, prints and cool decor pieces. We're currently converting my (soon to be) old bedroom into a little living room for when my boyfriend comes to live with us, so I've got my eye on a lot of bits and bobs to get. You can find some cool, unique things and it's really fun to rummage around as well!

Kids (and big kids!)

For any little ones in your life there are sweets and treats galore -  gumballs, jelly beans, chocolates, fudge, sweets... it's pretty much Charlie's chocolate factory. They also sell toys and books plus things kids tend to love like cute stationery and phone cases (they had some by Kate Spade that were lovely too). Plus, if you want to go all out this year - why not pick up a full size unicorn?!? 

Last but not least, I was so tempted to pick up this handy bell - ideal for summoning your mum when you need a drink. Haha!
