BeanBag Bazaar | Review & Giveaway

*AD – Unpaid Review

Seating space is at a bit of a premium in this house. We do have two three-seater sofas, but the smallest person in the house tends to take up two of those, and god help if two of the boys have to sit next to each other on the sofa. It gets even worse when my parents come up for the weekend – another two adults and two large dogs who think they’re humans. Now, thanks to BeanBag Bazaar, we have an extra seat to argue over.

We’ve had plenty of beanbags before, but to be honest, they’ve all been a bit crap. They go lumpy and uncomfortable very quickly and don’t get me started on when they explode all over the living room. However, the ICON® Ottawa Faux Fur Bean Bag, which costs £89.99 is amazing.

For starters, it’s adult-sized and huge. I can comfortably sit on it, and it’s great for feeding Elizabeth on. However, despite its enormous size, it’s really light, so you can pick it up and move it about easily.

It’s covered in a lovely soft ‘tipped’ faux fur. We went for a mink colour to match the decor in the living room, but it is available in a large range of colours. It’s snuggly and cozy – you sort of just sink it into it. Even Elizabeth likes to lie on it (supervised, of course!). The beanbag has a faux suede base to prevent slipping on wood floors. The cover feels thick and robust, and I’m not constantly living in fear that it’s going to rip and explode all over the lounge.

It’s made a great addition to our living room and now you have the chance to win one for yourself. To enter, follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter widget below. Please make sure you take care to follow the instructions and take a look at the terms and conditions below!

  44. 1- My sister!
    2- I begin to browse at the start of November and start shopping officially at the start of December
    3- roast potatoes!

  45. 1) My son’s gifts always get the most thought, it’s more important he’s happy than anyone else and Christmas really is way more special for kids.

    2) I usually start in November but this year I finished in October. I’m going away for Christmas so December is about planning and packing and it’s my son’s birthday, so I had to get it out the way early!

    3) I genuinely hate Christmas food, I know people will think that’s weird, but the whole traditional British roast dinner meal is just not appealing to me at al – never has been. Even though you can get good vegan alternatives to turkey now, I’m just not interested. Our family tradition is to eat a different cuisine from around the world each Christmas. I do LOVE mince pies though – they should be available all year!!

  46. My Husbands receives the most thought as I try to get him something that he wants, but he wouldn’t buy for himself.
    I would like to start Christmas shopiing earlier but I am a last minute shopper. The earliest I may be buying a present this year is an Amazon product on Black Friday.
    Turkey is the most quintessential Christmas food as it is the only time my family eats it. Hubby loves his sprouts so he has them for most Sunday Dinners!

  47. 1 my children

    3 yorkshire puddings or pig in blankets

  48. 1. It seems to change every year! Certainly not my daughter, she’s easy to buy for as she’s into everything, and my partner and I don’t buy each other gifts anymore unless we happen to see something we think is ideal. My partners parents can be difficult so sometimes they take a lot of thought (to buy for, lovely people!)

    2. Whenever it makes sense to and I see something. Some years I’ve picked things up in the boxing day sales, other years I’ve gotten nothing until mid December. This year I started buying for my daughter’s book advent at a book sale in September 🙂 it’s done now

    3. Pigs in blankets

  49. I put the most thought into my son, as he has everything!!
    I start my shopping at the beginning of December, and the best Christmas food is Duck!
