Superdrug is selling off advent calendars and gift sets at amazingly low prices

Normally you have to wait until Christmas is over to bag a sale bargain, but this year Superdrug is offering an array of festive savings with cut-price gifts that you can buy before the big day.

The promotion, which is running exclusively on Superdrug’s website, is giving you access to reduced advent calendars, beauty gift sets, stocking fillers and Secret Santa gifts with major reductions.

As we’re ten days into December, the traditional start of advent is now over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still treat yourself to a calendar and play catch-up. Superdrug’s own Bloom range – the line which boasts a surprisingly accurate dupe for a high-end Theirry Mugler fragrance – is just one of the brands that’s had its price slashed, both on candle and bath and body offerings for 2019.

Prefer make-up? You can also get a 24-day calendar from NYX, stuffed with eye makeup, lipstick, lip gloss, liquid highlighter, tools and more, with a little extra saving as it’s a little later in the month.

The cheapest item in the offer is the store’s personalised mug – a staple office present for colleagues, and a cute option for bulking out Christmas Eve boxes or hampers to give to relatives or friends.

You can also find Skinnydip make-up bags starting from £6 (down from £14), and cocktail sets for just £4.

However, if you’re in the market for something a little more substantial, Superdrug’s gift sets represent perhaps the best saving of them all, with some on sale for less than half of their original price.
