#TreatYourself - special offers that caught my eye

Christmas kits at OhSewBootiful 
Welcome to September's TreatYourself quintet of special offers and discount codes that caught my eye. I was gleefully informed this weekend that there's now less than 100 days until Christmas which I must admit was underwhelming, but it does give me a good excuse to start this post with a distinctly Christmassy discount code.

I discovered embroidery kit creator OhSewBootiful via Twitter and I love these seasonal hoop kits which would be wonderful presents for crafty friends or, if bought early enough yourself, would make up into unusual Christmas decorations for your home. I am told that only beginner embroidery skills are needed for most of the kits and the repetitive nature of the stitching is great for people practicing mindfulness techniques. Are you tempted? If so, the complete kits are £16.50 each or £40 for three and there are many different designs including Halloween pumpkins or romantic hearts. OhSewBootiful also have a September discount code of 20OFF60 - use the code at checkout to get a generous £20 off any order over £60.

Biscuiteers biscuits 
Also in celebration, but this time of birthdays, did you catch any of the Biscuiteers Birthday blog posts across the web last week? This was mine! I was lucky enough to get to sample one of their gorgeous tins of biscuits and was seriously impressed. Biscuiteers offer a wide range of themed hand-iced biscuits which make perfect gifts for pretty much any occasion. You can give them a try with a nice £5 off incentive just by signing up to the Biscuiteers email newsletter before you place your first order.

Cornishware are another company offering a £5 discount in return for signing up to their email newsletter. Having done so, you can then benefit from £5 off an order of £25 or more. That's not all you will get though because Cornishware orders over £25 also get free UK shipping AND there's a 20% sale across all their ranges at the moment so this is a great opportunity to refresh your kitchen with classic striped cookware. The company has been in business since the 1860s so they definitely know a thing or two about manufacturing durable and stylish tableware. The iconic blue and white striped range was introduced in 1926.

Recycled Wool Throw / Picnic Rug 
It almost felt like summer was over once September began, but I have been glad to see a resurgence of sunny weather in the past week or so. Long may it last! If you're still eking out picnic season then English Heritage have a special offer at the moment which might just appeal. Their Recycled Wool Picnic Rug is a very reasonable £15 anyway, but until the end of September you can get an extra 20% off this price by entering the code APR20 at checkout. Each recycled throw-rug is made from approximately 85% recycled wool and 15% other fibres which have been re-spun to create this environmentally friendly product. The random nature of wools available for recycling mean that every throw-rug is individual and unique, but also means that you will have no idea what colours yours will be until it arrives!

Union Jack selection box 
Finally, you can join in celebrating our Olympic and Paralympic heroes in a burst of patriotic fervour with Twinings this month. Their Union Jack selection boxes each contain six different varieties of tea (10 bags of each variety) with each bag wrapped in its own envelope for extra freshness. You can choose from greens, blacks, infusions or mixed teas. The 60 bag Union Jack selection boxes retail at £13.50 each, but you can take advantage of a Buy One Get One Free offer by entering the code UNIONJACK at checkout on the Twinings website. The offer is valid until the 30th September or while stocks last so don't leave to the last minute or you might miss out!

I hope you like this month's moneystretching offers and I will look out for more ideas for October.
