outdoor dining ideasI realised that I haven’t done a giveaway for aaaages, and especially in the current climate I figured it might be nice to do one for a bit of fun and to maybe to cheer people up. If you end up being the winner of this giveaway then you’ll definitely be smiling! Usually it’s that time of year when thoughts turn to summer, and for many people, updating their home and especially garden. As people are at home more and maybe (although I realise not true for everyone) saving money going out and about, they are possibly investing more in their homes and making them homely, comforting, enjoyable spaces to be in. This is definitely us at the moment, and we’re gradually using the extra time we have to work our way through some smaller jobs that we’ve been wanting to do since we moved in a year ago. 

As always I love so many of the new offerings from John Lewis at the moment, especially their ranges and ideas for outdoor dining. 

On the blog today, I’m offering you the chance to win a £100 John Lewis gift card in my giveaway, so you can get shopping for your home this summer too!

All you have to do is fill out the Rafflecopter below using as many options as you’d like.

Good luck!

  45. Although the kids would love to have a trampoline, we don’t have the room so I’d buy a lovely chair to sit outside.

  46. I would treat myself to a new dress. Lockdown has meant I’ve been able to shed over 3-stone, so a new wardrobe of slimmer clothes is required!

  51. I really need a new microwave and I know John Lewis have a good selection so that’s what I would put a voucher towards.

  52. I’d buy new dinner plates. We had a bit of an accident here. A slip up on some olive oil spilled on the floor whilst carrying a stack of plates, and our kitchen floor looked like we’d just hosted a Greek wedding. I’d use the balance to buy my other half a pair of slippers. Seems so appropriate somehow.

  53. What to buy? That is not always easy to answer. Depends on stock / supplies available. Shops have been closed. It would be Wonderful to be able to get into stores again, view goods on sale / for sale.

    Needs :- We could be doing with a dinner set / service, and new cutlery. My fiancé seems to be so heavy handed / clumsy with these ‘necessities ‘. In reality he is partially sighted, and hard of hearing, as well as having arthritis in his hands ( possibly connected / linked to job he had worked at for decades).

    To be able to have these needs addressed would be nice. Likely good for our self esteem, etc. As when we can once again welcome visitors to our home. We would love to share refreshments, food and drinks, etc. So crockery and cutlery which is practical, useful and presentable at the dinner table, etc would be a great asset, and boost our health and wellbeing. As humans we are social creatures, family, friends, loved ones welcome.

  54. Some bits for redecorating and some nice new bedding for our new mates we got after years on a horrible one ?

  55. Love to get some nursery bedding for our 5 month old grandaughter maybe a night light for her as she transistions to her own bed

  56. My sister is turning 30 in 2 weeks, I miss her terribly as she’s stuck at home with a 1 year old. I would love to give her a nice food hamper as a treat as she’s looking quite thin from stress

  57. Would definitely spend this on bits for the garden where we are spending as much time in as we can at the moment #ourhaven

  58. I’d spend it wisely, using eking it out in the sales – I’d probably buy myself some crockery as I could do with some for my ‘bottom drawer’ and I love their other ‘home’ range items too.

  59. I will be moving in to my first home soon, and own no furtniture! So anything related to furnitures will do for me haha

  60. Like you, I love John Lewis, always so much to dream about and wish for! I love their garden cushions, so they would be a beautiful addition to our garden seating, adding comfort as well as style and colour.

  61. I would love to win this to buy something for my wedding. We should have married last week but had to postpone until next year due to Covid.

  62. We need loads of things for our home , would love to get a chair cover , and a book shelf for my daughters for a start 🙂

  63. Would love some wallpaper for a feature wall in our bedroom which we’re hoping to decorate soon! We’ve chosen yellow/grey theme

  64. some oven to tableware would be good as I’m so clumsy at the moment and keep dropping and breaking everything

  65. I am wanting to redecorate my bedroom from teal to pink so I would put it towards some curtains or bedding x

  66. Great prize, If I was to win I would visit John Lewis with my wife and let her spend the voucher on anything she wanted to buy for our holiday after lockdown.

  67. I’d love some new pans! I’ve been eyeing up John Lewis’ non-stick pans for a couple of years

  68. I would love to put this towards a laptop for my 11yr old son. He normally does little jobs to earn money however during lockdown he has been maintaining the garden of the elderly & those shielding in the community free of charge.

  69. I’d put it towards new throws and fluffy cushions for my lounge which we are about to decorate thanks for the chance so many lovely things

  70. I think I’d buy a coffee machine – I’ve really missed my proper coffee during lockdown!

  71. I would love to get a wipe clean tablecloth for when my granddaughter comes to visit in July. I can hardly wait as I haven’t seen her, or my daughter, for months.

  72. I’d put it towards a car seat for my son. He’s growing so fast and will soon need the next size up, I’d love the same one as my daughter but it was a small fortune and now I’m not working I think he will have to have the slightly less snazzy (but equally safe) one 🙂
