Dare we say it... it's FINALLY summertime and to celebrate, why don't we do it with a new 20 under £20 selection! Our editor Heather has been busy putting together a bright and jolly selection of great value homeware must buys, just for you.

New to this page? Then let us explain... Every month, Ideal Home's editor-in-chief Heather Young creates her very own edit of must-have buys for the home and we share them here.
As well as looking at the high street, Heather trawls through a wide range of independent stores in order to pick her favourite, great value buys for every room in the home. 

Because we appreciate that not everyone has loads of money to fritter away on homeware, Heather has made sure that not a single one of these brilliant buys will cost you more than £20, so you can still treat yourself to a little something nice without spending a fortune.

Each month, as well as featuring in Ideal Home magazine, we also update this page with her latest picks, together with handy shopping links so you can buy your favourites without any fuss.
