You’re in luck, people because I’m giving away a £50 John Lewis Gift Card to one lucky Honest Mum reader!

Everyone loves John Lewis right (who’s already looking forward to their Christmas advert – eek!) and I’m particularly excited they’re opening a new department store in my hometown of Leeds. My husband and bank manager are somewhat less thrilled though it has to be said 😉

I HEART John Lewis as it really one-stop stop shop for pretty much everything anyone could possibly need or want and as they are ‘never knowingly undersold’ they’re also great value too!

So if you win the £50 gift card how would you treat yourself?

Here are some of my top picks from the fashion and interiors departments at JL.

    got my eye on a bluetooth speaker in John Lewis – this would come in handy towards it.

  2. Beverley Sharp

    I would like this as my step daughter has decided to fly the nest. She is starting with nothing and I found is was the small bits and pieces that cost the most. This would be a lovely start for her. Thank you x

  3. liz ferguson

    I have worn the same brand of perfume since I was 14, when I was given my first bottle by my Mum. To be honest, I was horrified. All the women in my family wear this brand, and have received a bottle, when they were considered ‘grown ups.’ I wasn’t ready to be a grown up. But, as usual, I digress from the matter in hand. Why do I want to win? My present bottle of Estee Lauder Youth Dew is almost empty, so I would be in John Lewis’s like a whippet to replenish my supplies. I really can’t do without my daily Youth Dew fix xx
