Five of our favourite deals for £50 or less...To kick things off, we’ve got one for the chocoholics out there. Never mind being under £50, this next deal doesn’t even cost £20. For £19, learn the art of chocolate making on a 75-minute masterclass in either Liverpool or Birmingham. The best bit? You get to take your personalised creations home with you at the end of the session. A great Christmas gift idea.
Speaking of which, if you’re planning on doing some Christmas shopping in the capital this year, why not make time for a 60-minute, full-body massage at The Chelsea Day Spa Boutique. For £39, you get to choose from a range of treatments – the perfect tonic after a hard day’s shopping.
Here are three words guaranteed to send some people into a cold sweat: Family. Day. Out. On top of the planning required, they can be eye-wateringly expensive, which is why this 50%-off deal from the Activity Superstore is such a winner: £22.50 for a Family Steam Train Experience at a range of locations across the UK, with vouchers valid until November 2012.
Heading across the Channel, how about an overnight stay in a hotel just down the road from Normandy’s historic Mont St-Michel? Sound good so far? How about paying just £38 per person to do so, and getting breakfast, two welcome cocktails and a 4-course dinner as part of the deal? What’s not to love?
If that’s not cheap enough for you, don your spectacles and be prepared to read this next bit more than once. £19 for a day trip to France with P&O Ferries, valid for one car and up to nine people, with six bottles of wine and 2-for-1 meals onboard thrown in. Yep, really. That’s the princely sum of £2.11 each if you take the maximum number of people. It’s the perfect way to stock up on booze ahead of the festive season.
