Who remembers the days before the Internet when the annual release of the Boots Christmas catalogue was something to rejoice? Ok, so it’s still well worth a look during your coffee break, but when their entire stock is online to not only browse but also order from in a few clicks, the catalogue in physical form doesn’t garner quite the same level of excitement as it used to. But that’s not to say Boots and Christmas are no longer perfect bedfellows - in fact they’re even more suited than they used to be thanks to their now famous 3 for 2 Christmas deal.
But in addition to their multi-buy discounts, Boots has also received a lot of attention for it’s generous discounts on a number of well-chosen and sought-after beauty products from popular brands. We’ve taken a look at some of the many reasons why Boots online is still a must visit at this time of year…
Online Beauty Bargains
We all love meandering around our local branch of Boots, but they can vary in size somewhat and consequently the range in store can be a bit hit and miss. Good for impulse purchases and perfume sampling, bad if you’ve got your eye on something very specific. But wouldn’t it be great if not only can you find the best deals easily on their website, but also the best deals before you even get to the Boots site? On My Favourite Voucher Codes we regularly update the best of their latest Christmas bargains and as you would expect, there’s plenty in the way of big name beauty products.
The one that’s getting the most buzz right this minute is the Soap & Glory ‘The Whole Glam Lot’ Gift Set which has an incredible 50% off right now (was £60, now £30). As stated by Boots themselves, they anticipate this deal is going to be very popular indeed so probably best to buy sooner rather than later. Because later may well equate to ‘not at all because of course it’s all sold out’.
Other offers more than worthy of note is the Marc Jacobs Dot Eau de Parfum 50ml which has £20 knocked off the price (was £50, now £30) and the Liz Earle ‘The Botanists Cabinet which is on an introductory offer of £30 before the price goes up to £60, and the latter works well as an introduction to the increasingly popular Liz Earle range.
It’s been many years since the Boots range was limited to just beauty and health care products, and thanks in part to their excellent 3 for the price of 2 Christmas deal, Boots has now become a destination for those parents hunting for a good toy deal and a good choice of stocking fillers. And if you can buy said toys at the same time as ticking your mother-in-law’s lily of the valley gift set and a few homeware gadgets off your list, then all the better. This year’s top toy brands include Thomas and Friends, Peppa Pig, VTech and the ever-present Lego, and you can find items from all of them with Boots discount vouchers on their 3 for 2 deal including the Peppa Pig Picnic Tea Set (individual price £15) and the VTech Singalong Microphone (individual price £11).
New Year New Baby
Now, you might know someone who’s expecting a new arrival around the Christmas period. Firstly you must offer them sympathy because from next year onwards they will have to contend with double whammy of birthday and Christmas presents all in one go and will therefore be a bit more skint than everyone else. Secondly, you can take advantage of the pre-Christmas Boots promo codes to save on your new baby gift to them. Until the end of December, you can get 10% off selected car seats, strollers and baby carriers when you spend £100 or more, so if you’re expecting yourself or know someone who is, you might want to add a Britax Evolva 1-2-3 Plus Car Seat (£129 before discount) to your Boots Christmas shopping list.
The beauty of Boots at this time of year is that you can get a huge chunk of your Christmas shopping out of the way in one order, no matter who you’re buying for. And when you add Boots voucher codes to the mix then it makes this retailer an even more attractive prospect.
