4. Monopoly Speed Board Game: Was £ 22.99, now £11.99
The worst thing about Monopoly? Games that go on for hours and hours, that’s what! But the genius thing about this version is that it can be played in just 10 minutes – so you won’t have to live in fear of passing Mayfair and Park Lane for hours at a time. Instead of waiting for everyone to play their turn, during the ‘buying rounds’, everyone rolls and buys at the same time. Chance cards are used to get better deals during the ‘trading stage’, and the Community Chest cards give bonuses before the end of the game.
5. Yankee Candle A Calm and Quiet Place Large Jar Candle, was £23.99, now £12.89
Relieve their stress (or your own) with this most relaxing of scents from fragrance favourite Yankee Candle, now almost half price. ‘A Calm and Quiet Place’ smells of a divine combination of ‘gentle jasmine, a whisper of patchouli and warm amber musk’ and can burn for up to 150 hours. It’s that little bit of bliss we all need at the end of a long day.
6. Spear and Jackson Kew Gardens Stainless Steel Gift Set (3-Piece): was £34.99, now £18.69
Beautifully presented in a gift box, this three-piece set is just the thing to give your favourite Alan Titchmarsh or Charlie Dimmock wannabe. The trowel, fork and transplanting trowel, have been developed with Kew’s horticultural team, who have solved many of the issues normally associated with hand tools. For example, longer tangs reduce the chance of scraped knuckles or hitting them on the blades. Made from ash and stainless steel, they look rather lovely, too.

They’ll kill 99.9% of bacteria as well as other nasties like MRSA, Salmonella and Flu virus (H1N1).
