CHRISTMAS MADE EASY

Planning for Christmas is much easier this year. As always, I’ll be searching for the perfect gifts, planning what to wear to the parties, celebrating with friends and family, and just maybe spoiling myself in the process. But I’ll also be maxing out on all the i-on Members’ Club offers and benefits to help me along the way. Here’s how I plan to use it, starting at me.

 Going out out

I like eating and I like drinking… at any time of the year. But add in some twinkly lights and I’m sold. This month, I will definitely be hanging out at the super chilled hidden gem that is the Dine cocktail bar, saving £20 as I sip on their delicious Champagne for just £30. I might even indulge in one of the exclusive member cocktails for just £5. Another great bar is the Epicurean at the G&V hotel; chic, neon and with 20% off all their drinks and snacks, it could be a long night.

Dinner choices abound with 20% off at the latest additions to the club, Urban Angel, Leftfield, Stockbridge Restaurant , Tuk Tuk and Malmaison. In fact , it’s going to take longer than the party season to sample all of them. One that I shall be indulging in ore Christmas however is dinner at Rabble for me and a group of pals. Thanks to my membership, I’ll be the most popular person in the room as they all receive a free glass of Prosecco with dinner.

Rosevear tea. My mum loves a cuppa so she’ll be getting the stylish Zero japan teapot and I’ll get a free bag of bespoke tea to make me look even more generous.

20% off Links of London. My partner has her eyes on the entire range. Gulp.

£5 off a bottle of Peatreekers whisky Fist pumps all round when they find this in their stocking.
