We all know January sales aren’t really January sales anymore given that they start the second Christmas Day is over. But for the sake of this post, we’re still going to refer to them as January sales and even though the bargain-tastic drama dies down somewhat after New Year, they are still very much going on and still very much useful.
In this context, we’re thinking about the reasons behind shopping in these sales and what items people might be looking for, with 2017 holidays very much on the minds of many. This doesn’t necessarily have to be about shopping for your summer beach adventure but also any spring and Easter holidays you might be planning for. Here are some items you can save on right now that will cover every holiday eventuality for 2017…
Wherever you’re heading you’re going to need something to put your stuff in because there’s nothing more annoying than pulling that suitcase out of the wardrobe and discovering/remembering one of the wheels is busted. Do yourself a favour and have a quick look at the luggage and bag bargains available right now such as the Antler Elba Navy 4 Wheel Soft Large Suitcase (was £150, now £75) from House of Fraser. You’ll be patting yourself on the back when the time does come to start packing. And we all know that will be at 2 o’clock the morning before you head off on your travels.
You might not think summer shoes and sandals will feature much in the January sales, but these days, online retailers have all eventualities covered. Brantano promo codes have a number of ways to save right now – you can shop in their sale as well as get 25% off a £40 spend until 21st January. At the summery end of the spectrum there’s Lotus Lidiya Espadrilles (were £40, now £15), but if your holiday plans feature walking in colder climbs, save on the Mountain Peak Wyoming Walking Shoes (were £24, now £16).
But let’s not dwell on cold weather for too long. Back to the summer and it being January doesn’t mean you can’t save on swimwear right now. The best place is to head to department store sites – via Debenhams you can save on items such as the Land’s End Purple Scoop Neck Tankini Top (was £40, now £14) as well as much more in the way of mix and match garments.
Although holidays are times to relax and not give much of a damn about things like what your hair looks like, some people prefer to take a little bit of car over their do, especially when you factor in the classic holiday humidity frizz. Taking your entire haircare collection might add to your baggage allowance just a tiny amount, so use the January sales to track down a bargain like the Babyliss Pro Nano 200 Mini Hair Straightener (was £10, now £8) available through Debenhams discount vouchers.
And we’re back to considering holidays a bit closer to home. Even if you’re thinking of booking a UK getaway in the warmer months, some sort of waterproof protection is always advisable, and if you’re on your UK hols in the next couple of months, may we suggest something quite warm too? Using Debenhams discount vouchers you save on the Craghoppers Charcoal Ellie 3-in-1 Waterproof Jacket (was £160, now £48) in their Blue Cross sale. Sorted.
While there are still days left in the month of January, then there are still January bargains to be had! So if you’re currently sorting out that holiday, be it for next month or in August, take a bit of time to sort out your holiday supplies too – if you don’t take advantage of the sale prices available right now then you’ll not only miss out on these prices but also an items that might not be here later on in the year. Your 2017 budget will thank you for it in the long run. You can find other holiday essentials here.
