I kicked off my online shopping splurge with some stocking fillers for the boys in my life from Matalan.  This was part of an invite from Matalan to put their online shopping to the test.

After spending far too long online browsing and being indecisive I opted for the following Christmas gifts for my boys.

Boys Neon Boxer Shorts – £5

These are super cute and far more exciting that lots of underwear for little boys in the main high street shops.  They won’t get mixed up with anyone else’s that’s for sure.

3 Pack Neon Trunks

Boys Cuffed Cord Trousers – £10-£14

These look so cute on.  I like Matalan trousers because they have adjustable waistbands which for little boys with little bottoms is great.

Ben 10 Vortex Tumbler – £3

This is super-cool.  I didn’t realise until it arrived that you can squeeze the lever and a spinner inside whirrs around and froths up your drink!

Pringle Knitted Boxers – £8

It’s a standing joke in our house that I am totally rubbish at buying my husband underwear.  It’s either too big, too small, or the wrong style.  But I’ve got it right this time, these are lovely.

Santa’s Little Helper Dress Up – £8

Husband is sceptical but I couldn’t resist this – our three-year old is going to look adorable on Christmas Day.

Our order was with us within two days with no trouble or confusion.  Everything was as described and overall we were really impressed.  The amount of polystyrene packaging was a bit over the top but it did make it a bit like a lucky dip!


We received a £50 gift voucher from Matalan to road test their online shopping.  I stick with the bloggers with integrity code to post honest and open reviews.
