The Best of the Boxing Day Sales

The Boxing Day Sales are finally here and I know that many of you have been looking forward to them. After the Black Friday madness, I thought that I was all shopped out but the deals this boxing day really are too good to miss.  Whether you're buying gifts to put away for people through the year, investing in decent kitchenware for a forthcoming house purchase or spending your Christmas money on a treat for yourself, there are deals to be had and I am going to share my favourites with you.

For all things beauty, Boots, Space NK and Look Fantastic are definitely the places to go.  Look Fantastic are offering sales of up to 50% off and free delivery whereas Space NK are also offering up to 50% off and free standard delivery on orders over £60.  I actually shopped the Space NK sale early this year, on Christmas Eve, as it wasn't advertised on their main homepage but I typed 'sale' into the search bar and all of the sale items came up at their reduced price.

I managed to nab myself an Aromatherapy Associates and a By Terry make up gift set that have both sold out ridiculously quickly as they were such good deals but there are still some ridiculously brilliant sale bargains to be had.  My choice would be to look out for the REN and Laura Mercier products as they're incredible value for money, particularly when in the sale.  Shop the Space NK sale here.

My Space NK sale faves:

When it comes to buying luggage, the January sales are the perfect time to do so as there are some serious discounts to be had.  House of Fraser seem to have the best selection this year with brands like Boss, Aspinal of London, Linea and Antler all available in the sale.

My luggage faves from House of Fraser are here:

For designer handbags, you must visit the Selfridges sale.  There's more designers than you can possibly imagine, all at low prices.  I'd be pretty gutted if I'd spent a small fortune on a handbag for Christmas, only to discover it had been reduced by hundreds the day after!  Only trouble is, they do tend do sell out quickly as everyone and their dog knows about the Selfridges sale.  I'd personally recommend heading to Net-A-Porter as they have up to 50% their sale items, plus they deliver worldwide and its not just their bags that are amazing, check out their shoes and accessories too.

Here's my best bits from Net-A-Porter including a pair of stunners that will be on WhatLauraLoves very soon:

The boxing day sales are the perfect time to update your wardrobe, especially as it has just started to snow so it doesn't look like the cold weather is going to go away any time soon!  Esprit have some great pieces all at really affordable prices and their sale has 30% off and more! I personally love their basics which make great layering pieces- perfect for hopping in and out of the cold this winter.

For electricals, you can't go wrong with John Lewis.  They have a great clearance sale on with some ridiculously good discounts, I'd also recommend checking out their home items.  Many of my friends have bought their own houses this year so I know they'll be hitting up the John Lewis sale for their washing machines, TVs and other household items.  We've bought a few things from there and they always offer such good advice in store and we have found their insurance/warranty guarantee on items to be really straight forward and hassle free.

So that's my pick of the sales.  Let me know about the bargains you've picked up in the comments!

  3. Great picks! I was so restrained over the sales this season! I've got so much stuff I've still to use, I only picked up a few bits from Oasis and Jack Wills! Normally I buy way too much stuff but I've just got nowhere to put it or no use for it right now!
