A gift guide with Love Catalogues*

Love Catalogues review and blog Christmas gift guide
Gift guides are some of my favourite posts to read at this time of year: I love casting my eyes across pages of pretty trinkets and luxe packaging that one can only dream of at Christmastime. I had the perfect
opportunity to compose my own while testing out helpful credit catalogue directory Love Catalogues.

Love Catalogues offers a lovely array of your favourite brands - Littlewoods, Very and Next - that have the lowest interest rates and most flexible payment plans, so it's totally okay if you want to spread the cost of your purchase over time instead of paying up front. This idea is appealing to me, as a first time house buyer, as it is an easy way to boost my credit score! Here are a few favourite gift ideas I found thanks to Love Catalogues, all of which you are able to buy and pay back gradually to improve your credit score.
1. Yankee Candle Pink Carnation (JD Williams) 2. Signature bow clutch (Littlewoods) 3. Vero Moda beanie (Next) 4. Lilyflame Fairy Dust Candle (Littlewoods) 5. Disney Colouring Book (Littlewoods) 6. Fleece pudding gown (JD Williams) 7. Victoria Secret Sheer Love body spray (Littlewoods) 8. Vera Wang Princess Flower EDT (Littlewoods) 9. Essie Fuji (Littlewoods) 10. Enamel bow earrings (Littlewoods) 11. NYX soft lip cream (Littlewoods) 12. Barry M strobe cream (Next) 13. NYX baked blush (Littlewoods) 14. Babyliss Boutique soft waves (Littlewoods)

Pros

It's really helpful! Especially for a newbie to the whole credit catalogue scheme like me. The site offers plenty of top tips and useful info, as well as explaining the ins and outs of online credit shopping, plus information about payment plans - not as scary as they sound. It finds the fairest priced and interest free credit catalogues, such as Littlewoods, so you won't end up paying more than you need to.

It's easy to navigate - I love the design of the site, it's really attractive, although maybe I am biased towards the pink colour scheme haha! It's really helpful and provides a contact form should you have any further enquiries.

It's a completely free tool to use - I really love that there are no pop up ads that make your page load slower and there are no sign up requirements, just advice and recommended places to shop.

My favourite brands - I like that Love Catalogues features my favourite and trusted brands such as Next, Argos and Littlewoods! I wasn't previously aware that Next had a credit catalogue scheme, so will be keeping this in mind. Argos sells a multitude of products, big and small - furniture, electricals and toys!


Cons

The products from some sites - JD Williams, Littlewoods - tend to be a little pricier compared to sites such as Boots or Superdrug where you pay up front. On the other hand it does make sense to offer a credit scheme for high end brands and more expensive items, as compared to cheaper items and sets.

Not a wide range of products - Although it does cover a nice array of electricals, appliances and furniture - those items that tend to make a deep hole in our pockets and therefore it may be easier to pay for them over a series of weeks or months rather than upfront.

This was more of an informative article haha, but I hope you enjoyed my picks too! My Gma says that in her days Christmas was very different, today we are relying on more and more material possessions to make us happy, so I try to ask for less, be thankful for more and enjoy all the lovely little things that this time of year brings. Though there are so many temptations in store and online! What do you think?

  5. Gift guides are so handy for this season! I love everything you've shared. :)
    However, I also agree that some of the same products can be found cheaper on other sites so it's always good to double-check.

I like the fact that you wrote about the pros and cons, it gives a good idea of how the website can be useful to us and whether it would be interesting to use or not - so thank you Elizabeth :D
