I've been shopping this morning and spotted some deals it might be worth buying now for Christmas:
a. Tesco has two for £7 on family sharing tubs of Cadbury Roses; Cadbury Heroes; Celebrations and Quality Street. Normally £5 each. While stocks last.
b. Marks & Spencer's Louis Vertay champagne reduced from £34 to £17. Offer available till end of the month at least, maybe into October, says my source.
(Tasting notes: Team Minted drank this on the weekend at a 70th party - it's good,)
c. Majestic Wine has a secret sale offering much-loved NZ sauvignon blanc, Villa Maria, for £7.99 online (must buy six) Normally £9.99. Enter VILLSAV3 at the checkout to get your discount. Ends Monday midnight.
We've also got a handy SMM guide to making savings at Christmas here.
