World Cup fever has gripped the nation, but we are happy to report that June is not all about football- the wonderfully British Wimbledon championship starts on Monday. Along with Pimm's and champagne, Wimbledon goes hand in hand with strawberries and cream, so to celebrate the start of the tournament we have rounded up our favourite strawberry themed gifts for under £40… with some Savoo savings thrown in for good measure.
It's the longest day of the year this weekend, so what better way to celebrate the evening sunshine than with a summer picnic with your colleagues; add jugs of Pimm's and party games into the mix and you have the perfect opportunity for team bonding on a budget (or at least an afternoon of getting drunk in the sun). With company expenses in mind, here are Savoo's top tips for planning an affordable picnic while the weather is still good.
Last weekend was not a good rugby weekend – for me at least. Not only did I lose my own rugby match (a second half capitulation in the last 15 minutes saw the opposition run away with it) but Wales lost their opening rugby match in the Rugby World Cup against South Africa by a demoralising single point, too.
Unplug the phone, put the cat outside and pull the curtains! A terrific sporting weekend is in prospect with Football, Rugby, Motor Racing and Athletics all taking centre stage and I, for one, cannot wait!
Sitting down to write this blog about Father's Day, I knew I was supposed to be all loving and gushing with happiness that I'd found a great gift for both my dad and my husband (the former from me, the latter from my kids). Instead, I couldn't help wondering (as I have done many times over the years) why on earth are men so bloody difficult?
It's a well-known fact that one of life's biggest trials is finding a gift for a man so, in a bid to find something that wouldn't be relegated to the back of the
bedroom closet, I decided to try and get some ideas by asking the
menfolk themselves. Well, you'd have thought I'd asked them to solve the
Reimann Hypothesis! In the end, I had just 2 overall responses - "I don't know" and "I don't mind". Not particularly helpful! I mean, gents, if you haven't got a clue what you want then how on earth are we supposed to? Well, now that you ask...
Men are notoriously difficult to buy for, especially when you've
left it this late in the day to shop for them but with these ideas and
their savings even the most difficult man will be happy on Christmas
day. Read on for our choice of the top last minute gifts for the man in your life
