Best be would be adhesive hooks command might do one or IKEA do some, you won't be able to put anything heavy on it though

We get ours from Tiele I think they supply hotels so decent quality at reasonable prices.

Agreed on Zara home. Or John Lewis in the sale.

Oh and don't bother with Ikea.

Sorry to ask a question that I am sure has been asked before but I am looking for some advice;

I purchased a jacket from Czech Rep and paid the vat at source- total cost was 365euro. DHL have just sent me a bill for duty/vat for £115.50

I believe this is wrong as I have already paid the vat.

Has anyone had experience with how to rectify this?

Cheers

no pikey but getting married and don’t want loads of tat gifts. If people want to give gifts we’d prefer having donations towards our honeymoon (safari). What’s a good online money collection tool/pot? PayPal pots not working anymore… gofundme would be weird….

Cash in a card seems less tacky though imo.

Anyone know how Needles Ghillie sneakers fit - should I go TTS or size down?

Friend of mine done similar in an online way.

They had a John Lewis gift list set up, and there was also options to pay something like £100 for a dinner on their honeymoon.

I didn’t do it personally and everyone just gave cash in a card, but if you’re worried then it’s the easiest way not to end up with 6 toasters.

Yeah John Lewis is the best if you're not doing kuoni-like thing for honeymoon. Older relatives will just give you cash regardless of whatever the system is haha.

Get all the le creuset and global knives you'll ever need.

congrats.

Perhaps consider something similar to the Chinese red envelope, this way it doesn't cause concern to guests on how much they should spend, also, it's a nice touch where everyone gets to smooch your missus and pat you on the head. Eye-wink Happy days - you end up with a wad of cash.
