Home Bargain boozy baubles
99p from Home Bargains
While we love the idea of sipping on a Sipsmith gin plucked straight off our Christmas tree this December, when you combine curious kids with the £25 price tag the reality of buying those baubles doesn’t seem quite so feasible. BUT, this is where Home Bargains comes in. For just 99p you can get your hands on a bauble that you can fill yourself with the tipple of your choice – complete with a hand straw for sipping. And, because these festive boozy baubles are re-fillable, you can enjoy a drink our of your christmas decoration again and again.
