Commemorative tins are quite a collector’s item and this year M&S launched not one, not two, but three to mark the occasion. Two red, white and blue beauties and a rotating tin with a selection of musical shortbreads that plays a special commemorative tune. At £5 or £8 you can’t go wrong.
To ensure your home is fit for a queen, why not decorate it with the Union Jack Jubilee Bunting? Costing just £6, this Union Jack Bunting will provide a festive backdrop to your anniversary celebrations! It’s made from pure cotton and features a pretty floral pattern on the cuffs. The pennant chain is three meters long with 20 flags and 15 cm ribbons at each end! Ideal for fences, above mirrors, bedrooms, kitchens… wherever you want to show your pride!
One item that particularly got us melting this morning is the Cotton Blend Queen’s Guard Duvet Set. You too can make sure your bedding is fit for a king or queen with this anniversary bedding set, available from £17.50! Crafted from a soft, breathable cotton blend, it features a repeating Queen’s Guard pattern on the front and a blue flecked reverse. This set is completed with a subtle button closure – so cute!
