Today is meant to be the start of something wonderful. Our old companion S-U-N is coming back into our lives which means we need to top up the tan and stock up the adult party bags.
As the mini-heatwave arrives; whether you plan to keep it chill this weekend or have a bit of a gaff sesh here are just some of the bargain bits you need to grab hold of:
1. Cocktail Fish Bowl
Two reasons to buy a cocktail fishbowl for €1.50 from Dealz: You get to avoid the queue for the kitchen and stay hydrated; win, win.
2. Unicorn Pinata
Who doesn't love a good party game? €1.50 from Dealz.
