    Could you do me a huge, huge favour and look out for their 'Offer Of The Week'?
    It's the soap&glory big thrill hat box for 20quid:

    https://www.boots.com/en/Soap-Glory...ig_Thrill_hatbox-_-181209_221209-_-C9094_Rot1

    I have been looking for one everywhere since Friday and even got up at 6:30am today to take the bus to the Trafford Centre because I heard they were getting more in stock....sadly none left by the time I got there as they only had three leftover from yesterday's delivery...

    If you find one I would be extremely grateful if you could buy one for me & send it to me...greedy people are selling them on ebay for 50 quid and I can't afford that :(

    I have more that 150 positive ebay feedback in case that makes anyone feel better ;-) And obviously I'd pay via Paypal right away...
    It was supposed to be my Christmas present to myself as the only present I get this year is a little something from my girlfriend
    Please make my Christmas :)

    Hate to say it but i dont think you will get one instore now..i debated about staying up to order online or risking a few small stores near me. I stayed up til stupid o clock and managed to get one, which is lucky as not one of my local stores had any left by dinner time..this is the MSE thread, there have been mentions of a couple of stores getting extra deliveries but im not sre where they/you are..if you go towards the end of the thread, say page 160ish thats when people are giving stock updates, how you get one..x

    Me and my partner both kept trying the website before she headed off to the shop to have a look for me...
    I was online from 6:45am-7:45am and the website kept crashing at the last minute['confirm checkout']
    But very glad I got one :)

    I did have a look when we were at Bluewater today to see if they had any but they didn't have any Soap and Glory stuff in the sale. Also had a look at the Hastings branch when we got back to my parents but none there either.
