Holiday Shopping Bargains – “Ssshhh, I got it for 50% off!”

Everyone needs some staple holiday clothes that make you long for a heatwave, but you don’t need to pay £60 for a swimsuit on the high street every time you jet off (… we’d much rather spend the money on an airport lounge!).
Here are our favourite places to do some holiday shopping, without the seasonally-high price tag…

TK Maxx
Our favourite for… Sun cream! You probably weren’t expecting that, but TK Maxx has high SPF and UV rating sun creams and luxury tanning oils for a fraction of what you’ll find elsewhere. A personal bargain, I got a £17.99 sun cream for £4 which also had a natural-looking developing fake tan. Just be sure to check the expiry, but you should be good if you’re last-minute holiday shopping.

House of Fraser
If you still have a House of Fraser in your home town and haven’t been holiday shopping here, you may want to start. The swimwear section is filled to the brim with luxury branded bikinis, swimsuits and surf shorts at discounts that will have you power-walking to the check-out.

New Look
Our go-to for a shoe sale, New Look do a great job of knowing exactly what shoes you need for a holiday – Espadrilles for exploring the town, flip flops for the beach, multi-purpose heels, comfortable-looking sandals… You’ll find it all in the New Look sale. This store is also good for finding beach cover ups, which are something a lot of shops seem to forget about each year.

If you love a first aid kit, you’ll be over the moon in Savers. The last time I was in there, I thought paramedics could drop in here on the way to work! Bandages, cleaning solutions, medicines, even plasters big enough to cover relatively-large tattoos, if anyone is planning to get inked abroad. It’s also a great store for shampoo & conditioner if you don’t want to take your usual £4 per bottle option on holiday.

It had to be here somewhere! Much like Aldi’s products competing with designer labels, Primark has taken on a sneaky habit of keeping a close eye on the year’s catwalks. If you’re looking for high-end on a low price, invest in a high fashion magazine a couple of weeks before you go away and see whether you can catch the trend early.

We know you’ve probably used the same suitcase for years, but your packing routine may be due for a bit of love. Amazon are great for low-cost packing cube sets – A God-send for travelling as a family where you need to keep a close eye on what’s already been worn. You can also find leak-proof toiletry bags and even travel gadgets, such as RFID card protectors, money belts and mesh beach bags.
