8 Frugal Teacher Gifts Anyone Can Make

Posted by on June 4, 2015 at 8:00 PM

8 Frugal Teacher Gifts Anyone Can Make

The end of the school year is almost here, and those teachers, educators and other people who work with your children have been working hard all year. Now is the time to say “thank you” one last time for all of the amazing work that educators do throughout the year. I have put together a small roundup of ideas that I think are fantastic gifts that anyone can pull together. So pull out your scissors, and let’s talk cute and inexpensive gifts!

No Sew Personalized Tote Bag

8 Frugal Teacher Gifts Anyone Can Make

Over at V and Co., they created a cute personalized tote that looks like a sheet of paper complete with the teacher’s name. Best of all, she used fabric paint pens to make this fun project, no sewing necessary. Complete the gift by stashing a few fun treats in the bag for your favourite teacher, and use your best cursive writing!

Thanks A Latte Card

8 Frugal Teacher Gifts Anyone Can Make

My go-to teacher gift is a handwritten note and a gift card to a nearby coffee shop. Jazz it up a little with this cute free printable from Eighteen 25. Print the card on card stock or print on photo paper and glue to cardboard. When you go to buy your gift card, ask for a few extra coffee sleeves, which will then hold the gift card in place. Genius!

Bouquet Of Flower Pens

8 Frugal Teacher Gifts Anyone Can Make

Pens are always walking away in the classroom with many hands in need of writing utensils. Help your teacher keep her pens together with this sweet bouquet of flowers over at Artzcool. Attach pens to the stems of the artificial flowers and present the gift in a vase. This gift is thoughtful, cute and practical all rolled together. Your teacher will never be without a pen again. These pens will not accidentally disappear from the teacher’s desk.

Tickled Pink Giftset

8 Frugal Teacher Gifts Anyone Can Make

I think this “Tickled Pink” gift set at Pizzazzerie is both fun and customizable. This gift includes a cup with a pink lid and an assortment of other small pink items to help say thank you. Ideas include pink lip balm, pink nail polish, chocolate in a pink wrapper and whatever else will fit in the cup. I like that you could make this gift as small or as large and that the items you include can vary. Follow the link for a free printable tag to hang on your gift.

Thank You For Being A Light

8 Frugal Teacher Gifts Anyone Can Make

You can pair this sweet printable from The Crafting Chicks with a lantern, candle or another type of light for your favourite teacher. I like that this blogger chose this fun Ikea lantern.  I have several of these lanterns in my backyard and love them. A citronella candle is also a thoughtful gift for your teacher’s patio.

Funny Giftcard Holder

8 Frugal Teacher Gifts Anyone Can Make

If you have a sense of humour, you may want to consider this hilarious gift card holder from Chickabug. I may just have to snag this idea for my favourite teachers as I think they would have a nice chuckle. Even better, any gift card could slide into this card for a quick and easy gift.

Potted Flowers

8 Frugal Teacher Gifts Anyone Can Make

I have happy memories from my childhood bringing purple Irises to my teachers each year from our garden at the end of the year.  I now prefer to give potted flowers for gifts, as they tend to last longer than cut flowers.  At Sippy Cup Mom, there is a cute free printable to add to a potted plant that says “Thank You For Helping Me Grow.” If you know your teacher loves to cook, why not include a potted herb such as basil or oregano that they can use all summer long. You could also add this printable to cut flowers also to finish off a cute gift.

Spa In a Jar

8 Frugal Teacher Gifts Anyone Can Make

What I love about the spa in a jar idea is that this gift can scale. Choose to include only a few items or extend this gift into a larger basket. Over at The Gunny Sack, they have created a spa gift set with many ideas for in the jar. This blogger included some homemade beauty items with links to the recipes and free printable tags. If you are not crafty, a few smaller lotion bottles also work just as well. For a smaller gift, I might include nail polish in a pretty colour, a foot file, nail clippers and a nice neutral smelling foot soak or lotion.

For more great ideas for gifts for teachers, check out this past post Eva wrote: 6 Inexpensive Ways To Thank Your Teachers.

Bargainmoosers, what do you have planned for your end of the year gifts?

The Body Shop: 40% Off & A Free Body Butter With Your $50 Spend

Posted by on May 30, 2015 at 11:54 AM

The Body Shop: 40% Off & A Free Body Butter With Your $50 Spend

The Body Shop has 40% off your favourites this weekend, and while that deal happens to happen quite a bit, they’ve got another incentive for you to shop. You’ll get a free full-size body butter with any $50 purchase. Another perk you’ll get at $50 is $5 shipping, or you can spend $75 and get free shipping. Either way, say hello to your free body butter!

I’m looking for gift ideas for the teachers of my children, who I truly appreciate. My school is actually quite overcrowded and while I find it super chaotic, I find that the teachers and other staff at the school do a fantastic job. Normally I also have a bus driver to buy for, but this year my kids walk to school. But, the secretary that sees me pick up my youngest every day is a sweet woman who takes good care of all the kids and her office is seriously a madhouse. So besides the five teachers I have to buy for, I may get her a little something too! All women love The Body Shop so I’m going to stock my cart up with items for everyone and no one needs to know I got that free body butter.

Since I’m buying for someone else, I can’t assume they love perfumy fragrances or fruity ones. So I’ll stick with shea, which I know so many women love for its luxurious feel. I could get the shea premium gift selection for that one special teacher, or split it up and give random items to each teacher to save on my cost. This has a $59 value and is only $45.

If I also added this shea body scrub to my bag, regularly $20 and now only $12, I’ll get the free body butter too. It also looks like you can choose another free sample. It does say free sample at $75 and while my cart was below that, it still let me add the free sample anyway.

Body butters are regularly $20, but are on sale for $12, but no matter the price, it is a nice bonus on top of the deals. I choose the shea body butter, just to get the theme staying the same.

Sticky9: 3 for 2 Deal & Free Shipping

Posted by on February 3, 2015 at 12:30 PM

Sticky9: 3 for 2 Deal & Free Shipping

Avigayil introduced you to Sticky9, which is a UK store that turns your Instagram and other photos into personalized gifts. They have free international shipping, but you may encounter duties or customs fees at the border. To avoid this, you can keep your order under $20. If you can’t, you just have to hope for the best! Right now Sticky9 has a fantastic deal on where if you buy three items, you’ll pay for only two. This can be on any of their items, large or small.

You can mix and match your items, but know that the cheapest items will be free.

I really love their magnet calendars, which sell for $36.99 (all prices are in Canadian dollars, which makes it super easy to figure out your total!). These make great gifts for Valentine’s Day. You decide on the six photos you’d like to see on the calendar and they do the rest. You can display it as you’d like. If you wanted to get three of these, you’d save $36.99, paying a total of $73.98 for three calendars.

The phone covers are cool too, and I’m sure it would be easy enough to find three phones to cover for $37.99 a piece. Or you could cover their phone and tablet, plus your own phone. Tablet covers are $49.99. If you had three tablets to cover, you’d save $50 and pay only $99.98 for three tablet covers.

I like that you can think out of the box for these personalized gifts. You don’t just have to choose one photo, but some items, like the covers ask you to choose multiple photos (like 36!) so you can get a little shot of that person’s life right on to the gift. You can be creative and put all of their favourite things into one collage. For example, my hubby loves his kids, his work, golf, beer and chicken wings (and of course me). I think I’d do a collage of all those things so when he looks at his cover, he’ll smile. Sure, I could do just a bunch of pics of the kids, but that’s so overdone Sticky9: 3 for 2 Deal & Free Shipping

There are coupon codes available for Sticky9, but you can’t use them with this promotion and this deal far beats those coupon deals, unless you only want to get one item.

Walmart Canada: Gift Sets Were $14 | Now $7

Walmart Canada: Gift Sets Were $14 | Now $7

Maybe you still need to get some gifts, maybe you want to get yourself a gift, maybe you just want to capitalize on the hot deals on gift sets! Get 50% off gift sets of all types at Walmart, with free shipping on top.

There are gift sets for every person on clearance today and I’m going to guess that these will go quickly as some have already sold out. Remember that the gift sets are usually already discounted from the regular price of buying the products on their own.

The Neutrogena beauty holiday set is only $7, with a regular price of $14. You’ll get a daily cleanser, makeup remover and moisturizer. You are basically paying just over $2 for each of these full-size products.

Gillette really is the best a man can get, and for $7 you’ll get the Gillette flexball gift pack, which includes the Flexball razor and the shave gel. Razors are notoriously expensive, so stock up on this kit!

If Schick is more your style, this Schick hydro 5 holiday pack is worth the $7 you’ll pay, with a regular price of $14. This set has much more than the Gillette pack, with a razor, two blades, shaving soap, grooming set a bristle brush. This one is a true steal!

Get the classic match homme 3-piece fragrance set for only $7 as well, with a regular price of $14. Get a new scent for the new year and spend less than $10 – that’s pretty sweet.

As I’m writing, I see some sets selling out, so I’ll let you look for yourself and decide what sort of Christmas gift you want to get yourself from Walmart’s clearance section!

If you love Costco like I love Costco, you’ll know that they have a huge gift card section, with gift cards from every genre at very discounted prices. Did you know you can also get them online and print them right at home or send them over email to your gift recipient. These make the perfect last minute gifts, as you simply go on and buy and get your gifts!

Costco has gift cards for spas, restaurants, attractions, activities and so much more. We’ve blogged about a few of these before, like the Cineplex movie packages. These are all print at home or e-vouchers. You can get your child an adventure five pack, which is $49.99 and includes five child admissions, five popcorn trays, five drinks and five treats. That is a substantial savings and gives them something to do over the long winter ahead.

If you are looking for spa gift certificates to give, there are lots of choices. You can choose between Spa Utopia and salon e-certificates where you’ll get two $200 certificates for only $319. Or you can get two $50 gift certificates with a bonus $10 gift card for only $79.99 for Spafinder Wellness 365. WaySpa gift cards are also very nice and I can vouch for this myself and you’ll get two $50 gift cards for $79.99.

If you’ve got a child to buy for, this new certificate deal on Costco is on the Build-a-Bear workshop e-certificates. You can get two $50 gift cards for only $79.99. This gives you something to do over the break. Fun, fun!

There are also a lot of escape vouchers, for all over the world if you are travelling and some at home if you are staying in Canada. They have everything from Fallsview indoor waterpark to Ski Mont Habitant to Legoland Florida.

Citypasses are also the way to go if you are traveling to a new city and those are all on discount at Costco.

Getaways are always my favourite gifts and this BedandBreakfast.com gift e-certificate is only $87.99 for a $100 gift certificate.

Bargainmoosers, how many of you are late on the draw and going to purchase some of these deals from Costco? Let me know in the comments below!

Disney On Ice Was $28 | Now $17 With Travel Zoo Promo Code @ Ticketmaster

Disney On Ice Was $28 | Now $17 With Travel Zoo Promo Code @ Ticketmaster

With Christmas less than two days away, you are going to be hard-pressed to do online shopping and get your items in time. But, you can order tickets to an event and get that in time with ease. If you want something to do with the kids (or even with other adults), consider Disney on Ice. You can use this TravelZoo coupon code to get tickets for $17 with a regular price of $28 and $35 with a regular price of $45.

Click here to get your tickets @ Ticketmaster now

  • Coupon Code: TZ2014
  • Discount: $17 and $35 tickets
  • Expiry: 28th December 2014

How fun and what a special night it would be if you surprised your kids with Disney on Ice tickets for Christmas Eve or even Christmas Day? Tickets are available as early as today, all the way until December 28th.

Finding your seats is easy as you choose your wanted day and click see tickets. From there, enter the promo code to see the available seats at these rates. I also noticed that there is a deal for kids tickets for $20 in the $35 seats. This means your family of four could see the show in fairly good seats for $110.

Unfortunately, there are ticket fees on top, which is normal with Ticketmaster. These fees vary up to $10 a ticket and another $5 on top of your order. The bright spot in this is that you are basically saving these fees with the coupon code.

The show that is playing is Treasure Trove, which features all of the Disney princesses, plus other favourites from The Lion King, Alice in Wonderland and more.

It is playing at the Rogers Centre in Toronto and if you aren’t familiar with Toronto, there are some great restaurants down there that you could go for dinner afterwards with the family. I also love seeing all the lights downtown Toronto at this time of year. Your kids will not forget this.

For all Ticketmaster coupon codes, you’ll want to visit the forum.

5 Last Minute DIY Christmas Gifts that are Surprisingly Easy

Posted by on December 22, 2014 at 8:00 PM

5 Last Minute DIY Christmas Gifts that are Surprisingly Easy

Four of my closest friends and I started a holiday tradition a few years ago, where instead of spending $25 to $40 per person for gifts, we make “Do It Yourself” gifts.  We go away for a girl’s weekend trip and talk about our resolutions for next year and exchange our home made presents.  We have all agreed that making the Do It Yourself gifts has been a great idea and I am always excited to see what my friends come up with because we are all creative people, in our unique ways.

This year, my friends of course didn’t fail to impress me.  I love all of my Christmas gifts and having something that is home made from my good friends is priceless.  It means more to me than any gift card can!

Also, instead of spending upwards of $150 on gifts for four girlfriends, I only spent $40 this year.  $10 of that went to getting needle nose pliers which I can use for future jewellery making sessions.

So, if you are worried about some last minute gift giving or want to start making your own Do It Yourself Gift, here are five ideas that can get you started.  They are very easy to make and are very easy on the holiday budget.  Even though these gifts are frugal, they are far from scrooge-like!

Gold Hex-Nut Earrings

5 Last Minute DIY Christmas Gifts that are Surprisingly Easy

I made these and my friends were impressed.  They are very easy to make and involve a trip to your local hardware store and Michael’s (or other craft store).  I got the idea from a previous post of DIY gifts and had the chance to make them this year.  All you need is:

  • E-6000 jewellery glue ($8 for a pack of five small glue tubes)
  • Hex Nuts (Brass) (about $0.17 for each nut)
  • Jump clasps ($4 for a ton)
  • Earring hooks (about $3.50 for a pack of 3 sets)
  • Needle nose pliers to open and close the clasps

I made variations and different styles for each friend, depending on their personal style.  I made a bracelet too which looked nice as well.

Infinity Scarf

5 Last Minute DIY Christmas Gifts that are Surprisingly Easy

This beautiful scarf took my friend one evening of knitting to make.  An infinity scarf is basically a big circle, it doesn’t have ends and it makes for a beautiful elegant look to keep you cozy all winter.  I don’t think I would ever be able to make this because I can’t even knit a regular rectangle shaped scarf, but if you have the knack for knitting, this is an easy DIY gift.  Here are instructions from instructables on how to knit an Infiniti scarf, as known as winter’s hot new accessory.  It’s so hot that it’ll make you want to dive into an infinity pool! 5 Last Minute DIY Christmas Gifts that are Surprisingly Easy

Home Made Granola

5 Last Minute DIY Christmas Gifts that are Surprisingly Easy

This granola tastes absolutely delicious, especially with thick and creamy vanilla yogurt!  It is a perfect start to the day.  Tis particular granola recipe is from the 100 Days of Real Food blog.

Sharpie Mug

5 Last Minute DIY Christmas Gifts that are Surprisingly Easy

My friend made personalized mugs for each of us with a blank white mug (it’s such a wonderful size, it’s big enough for soup!) and a sharpie pen.  She baked the mug to make the sharpie permanently absorb into the ceramic.  She added special flair by making white chocolate park and putting it in the cup too.  Here are some instructions on how to make a DIY sharpie mug from the blog Savvy Sugar.  I haven’t tried putting it in the dish washer yet, and I have heard that they might not be dish washer safe/ might bleed, but it sure looks cute anyways.

Citrus-Bergamot Body Butter

5 Last Minute DIY Christmas Gifts that are Surprisingly Easy

This smells absolutely amazing and invigorating.  Here is a step-by-step guide on how to make this body butter using different essential oils from the blog, She Wears Many Hats.  I personally love the smell of citrus fruit and bergamot (the same smell in Earl Grey tea).  The texture of this is quite solid, but it melts very quickly in your hands.

It’s pretty remarkable that although we each had no idea what the other friend was making, we all made something very unique, practical, and special to our hearts!  Something to appeal to each of our senses, taste, touch, smell, and sight (because jewellery is really eye catching, of course).

Readers, have you made these before?  Any other last minute DIY gift ideas?

Future Shop Canada: ObusForme Handheld Massager Was $99 | Now $30 *Bump*

Posted by on December 19, 2014 at 12:12 PM

Future Shop Canada: ObusForme Handheld Massager Was $99 | Now $30 *Bump*

The other day we blogged about this massager and what a great deal it was at Best Buy for $34.99 and now it is is $29.99 at Future Shop. If you didn’t get it then, you might want to today at this cheaper price! It has a regular price of $99.99.

Well, I was going to blog this deal for you that I found at The Source, until when price comparing, I found it even cheaper right now at Best Buy!

With the stress of the holidays looming on my back, I really need a massage! Unfortunately for me, my benefits have run out so I need to wait just a few more weeks to get one and get reimbursed for it. In the meantime, my aching back and shoulders are screaming out for some relief and hubby’s hands just don’t cut it. But, I could pass him this massager and get him to do it with that. I think that would really help get some knots out.

I’d also love this for my middle son, who has trouble getting to sleep and deep pressure works wonders on him. Instead of using my hands, I could massage his back with this. It says it gives 3,000 pulses per minute, which sounds pretty good to me. I can even do it myself as there is an extension arm.

It has really great reviews like:

I bought the body massager for my aching legs. They work really well as I feel better after massaging my legs. They are also great for all over body massage, specially the back. I got this on sale from Best Buy for half price. Lucky me. The only cons was the 3″ arm extension. If you try to close it fast, part of your hand can get caught and will hurt you. But once you’ve done it a few times, you’ll always remember to close it slowly. Future Shop Canada: ObusForme Handheld Massager Was $99 | Now $30 *Bump*

It sells at Walmart for $78, at Well.ca for $99 and at The Source on sale right now for $50.

Another way you can tell when something is a hot deal is that it goes in my cart, and this one did. I know Best Buy ships quickly so I think I’ll get this by Christmas even though I didn’t get any shipping details. It will also ship for free being over the $25 minimum.

WagJag Canada: $40 Worth Of NHL Gift Baskets for Only $18

Posted by on December 15, 2014 at 3:30 PM

WagJag Canada: $40 Worth Of NHL Gift Baskets for Only $18

Purchase WagJag’s $20 What A Bloom NHL Gift Baskets deal today and you’ll receive a $40 credit towards any NHL Gift Basket. Better yet, use our exclusive coupon code to get this deal for only $18! I like deals that don’t lock me in. I can pick from a couple different basket choices instead off being stuck to only one choice.

I don’t know anyone who would love a hockey themed gift basket… said no Canadian ever. If you head over to WagJag today, you can grab a $40 credit for only $18 at What A Bloom. I’ve never purchased from What A Bloom before, but I do like receiving yummy food and gift baskets at my door.  Taking a look at their website they give you a nice selection of NHL teams to choose from.

  • Toronto Maple Leafs
  • Edmonton Oilers
  • Winnipeg Jets
  • Vancouver Canucks
  • Montreal Canadians
  • Calgary Flames
  • Ottawa Senators

The gifts and baskets range in price from $25-$70. I really dislike when a deal site sells you a $40 gift certificate and everything starts at $50. It’s good to see you can purchase this deal and deliver the gift without spending extra cash if you choose. I also like that the bigger gift baskets aren’t super expensive either. They’re not trying to convince me to buy a $200 basket with my $40 voucher.

While overall there are a lot of teams to choose from, there aren’t a ton of different styles of tins.

  • Popcorn Bank
  • Popcorn Tin
  • Mug with Snacks
  • Baby Item Themed Larger Tin
  • Snack Themed Larger Tin

These are a great gift to send to family or friends who are farther away to tell them you are thinking of them. Maybe you need a quick gift for your dad’s birthday and forgot? (Sorry Dad!) Or maybe you truly don’t know much about the person except they like hockey such as a gift for an employee. This kind of gift is a safe bet that the person on the other end will appreciate.

To truly see if this is a deal; let’s compare the Toronto Maple Leafs Hockey Night Tin at What A Bloom with a few other retailers. It’s a licensed NHL product so several places have them. If you were to buy the tin with the WagJag deal you’ll spend $20 on the Wag Jag deal plus $10 on the tin. That puts you at $30 total for the tin. Here’s what you’d spend without the deal.

  • $50 @ What A Bloom without the WagJag Deal
  • $50 @ Flowers Canada
  • $60 @ Staples

It’s quick to see that on this bigger tin you’ll save 40-50% by grabbing this deal now. On a smaller gift you’ll save a little less, but won’t shell out any extra cash out of pocket. Either way you’ll have a great gift to send at a fraction of the cost. You won’t be able to include shipping in your voucher, but you are saving enough that the shipping won’t matter.

Amazon Canada: Lionel Polar Express G Gauge Train Was $150 | Now $75 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on December 15, 2014 at 8:50 AM

Amazon Canada: Lionel Polar Express G Gauge Train Was $150 | Now $75 (EXPIRED)

Do you have a model train lover in your family? I do! This Lionel Polar Express G gauge train set is a fantastic deal at Amazon today and it is going to sell out quickly. Now only $74.99, it has a regular price of $149.95.

You don’t need to be a collector to enjoy this train set. Kids love the Polar Express, which I think is a classic, making this train set a classic Christmas set. You could place it around the tree to add something whimsical and fun that you’ll be thankful for when you pull it out every Christmas.

My husband loves model trains and he would love this special gift. He actually wanted to set up tracks all around his office, but he just hasn’t gotten to that project yet. He could replace his regular trains with this Polar Express set.

Not just the train, it comes with three Polar Express figures and also has two opening doors. There is an authentic bell and whistle and a working headlight, plus a disappearing “hobo” feature, based on a scene in the movie.

The train can be run on rechargeable 9.6V batteries or on six C batteries (which are included).

If you do Elf on the Shelf, imagine the kid’s surprise when their Elf has brought them this train, which they find running in the morning, with an invitation to watch the movie that night. Or if they watched it for the first time the night before, the train would be such a fun addition in the morning.

There are varying reviews, but this one is really one that makes you go “ahhh”.

I have wanted a train around the tree since I was little, I am 60 now. We love the movie and we love this train, is it the best-est ever NO. This train is what I paid for, I have realistic expectations. I glued the conductor into one of the doorways, put the boy on the roof with the hobo and away it went! We used one set of c batteries, we didn’t run it a lot, just as a novelty. One night 3 of us guys were laying on the floor getting the four cars set right on the track so it wouldn’t click, fun! This Polar Express Train was the best addition to Christmas since our grandson whom at almost 3 ran the remote just fine. Buy it, it is worth it, the bell, whistle and conductor announcement make it a magical Christmas.

Because the train is over $25, it will ship for free from Amazon. I wouldn’t wait on this purchase, as I think it will sell out rather quickly.

If you are looking for a great last-minute-type gift for a loved one, think about Next Issue. I would love this as a gift… the gift of reading magazines! Right now you can use the promo code to get 25% off your first three months. This is the highest promo code I’ve seen for Next Issue, so I don’t think you’ll do better.

Click here to get your subscription @ Nextissue.ca now

  • Coupon Code: HOLIDAY25
  • Discount: 25% off
  • Expiry: 31st December 2014

What’s great about this coupon is that it is valid until the end of the year, so it is perfect for those who might be waiting until the real last minute to get a gift.

You’ll get access to over 100 magazines and the subscriptions start at $9.99 a month, which is a savings of about $2.50 a month for those three months. That will get you 130 monthly magazine subscriptions.

If you like weeklies, you’ll want the premium membership, which gives you another 11 magazines that come out weekly. That one is regularly $14.99 a month, but you’ll save $3.75 a month. I think this one is the most worth it. I like my weekly magazines!

I’ve had a hard time switching from print to digital as I’m just a hardcore paper fan. I love grabbing my magazine from the mailbox and reading it from cover to cover, but for how much I read, it gets pricey. I had to stop myself this year when the kid’s QSP fundraiser came home from subscribing to 12 different magazines as I’ve done in years past. But, I miss my magazines and this is a great way to read what I want, when I want.

I have a trip coming up and this is the perfect way to bring my magazines along with me without bringing 10lbs of extra paper with me. You don’t have to be online to read as you can download them before you go. You can even set up automatic downloads.

Some of my favourites include Macleans, Bon Appetit, HGTV and Oprah. I also see that they have kids magazines like National Geographic Kids and ones my husband might like to read like Golf Digest.

What I love about it is that I can use it on up to five devices, which means I can let my kids read their own magazines on their own devices for the one price. I’m sold!

The Body Shop Canada Promo Code: Exclusive $10 Off $20 *Hot*

I’ve got a very hot deal for you Body Shop lovers out there! Get $10 off your $20 order until Sunday with our exclusive coupon code!

  • Coupon Code: BARGAINMOOSE
  • Discount: $10 off $20
  • Expiry: 14th December 2014

I love hot coupons like this! Get a gift for everyone on your list from The Body Shop and save $10 on your very low purchase of $20.

The Body Shop also has a buy more, save more promotion going on, which is stackable with this coupon. I would suggest adding whatever it is you like to your cart to see your buy more discount, then add the coupon on top to get the $10 off.

Basically the buy more deal is 30% off three items, 40% off four items and 50% off five items. Once you add items to your cart, your discounted price shows up, which to me, makes it a little confusing because is that the price with the 30% off with three items in the cart, or is it the price of me putting a fourth item in my cart? Either way, your best bet is to add five items and get $10 off for your best savings.

I think the frosted cranberry sounds very scrumptious so I am very partial to that scent for my own home and as gifts. The shimmer lotion sounds great, not just for a fun and festive night out, but all year long. It is actually made from cranberry seed oil from Canada.

I have a little holiday outing with girlfriends coming up, so buying five of these as gifts is a no-brainer. I know my friends would love this and it makes it so easy to get gifts for them all. Regularly $12, you’ll get 50% off all of them, for a total of $30, then get another $10 off. Because you wouldn’t meet the minimum for free shipping with this purchase, you’d get charged another $7.50.

You could instead keep upping your total to get to $50 and pay only $5 or get it up to $75 and get free shipping.

As always, keep an eye on the Body Shop coupon page for all the latest and hottest coupons.
