Paul Smith at Boots

Searching for a stocking filler for your dad or brother? You could do worse than €20 for a 100ml bottle of Paul Smith Man 2 aftershave at Boots. Just pop by and take a sniff first. You don’t want any more funny smells floating around the house at Christmas than necessary.

Still saving at Dunnes Stores

Dunnes Stores are giving even more money back, with savings that should make Christmas a little easier. Valid when you spend €25 or more, you get €5 off your next shop when spending €25; €10 off when you spend €50; and €15 off when you spend €75 (1 x €5 and 1 x €10 for two separate shops).

Terms and conditions apply.

Christmas Coke at Supervalu

For today only (November 20), Supervalu are offering 18 cans of Coke/Diet Coke/Coke Zero for just €5. For the mathematically challenged, that works out at 28c per can (normally between €1-1.10 in the shops).

Whatever your viewpoint on sugary drinks and the harm they can cause your teeth, that’s a pretty good deal. There will be quotas per customer, however, so don’t expect to walk out with a couple hundred.

Halfords Alert

Thinking of getting the kids a ride-on toy for Christmas? Then it’s worth popping down to your local Halfords, as they’re offering half price on their range of ride-on tractors, cars and quads.

The John Deere tractor and trailer set is €84 (save €86), while a pretty cool motorised batmobile with flashing lights and Batman noises could be wrapped up under your Christmas tree for €159 (save €160).
