Boden: Cyber Monday Special! 30% Off with Free Ship!

Should read: For my readers...Thrill Them to Bits.
Yay!  I am sure many of you were wondering why Boden didn't have a Black Friday sale going on last week (like every retailer out there was).  But...regardless of how well Boden is doing (seemingly so based on how much of their stock is completely sold out as of today), they couldn't pass up the opportunity to at least dabble a bit in the holiday sale spirit.

Anyhow, the deal is (or what is left of it) and tomorrow until 11:59 pm, you are set to save 30% off with free ship and returns on almost everything that Boden has in their collection right now.  There are some exclusions (it is a really short list, btw) here, so do check them out before you do your (sale) shopping.

Because I had some time today, I compiled a list of gifts that could work for various people in your life.  I tried to find things that are adorable and/or practical (depending on the recipient), and IN STOCK.  I can't guarantee all of these will be in stock tomorrow night as some of them are already verging into pink checkmark territory, but at least it may give you an idea of something you could get.  ;)

For your Mom, the Sparkle Skye Jumper.  I have this in navy and my blog friend, Joanna, has this in the ivory color, and we both heart this one so much.  I find it to run a bit big in my normal knitwear size, but I am not going to send it back for the size smaller since it looks really cute a bit slouchy.  Your mom would love this for comfort and a bit of bling...really isn't that what we all want, anyhow?  Was $118, now $82.60.

For your best friend, the Velvet Scarf.  This scarf, with its deep purply-red shade and luxurious hand feel, would adorn the neck of your dearest friend beautifully this holiday season.  And every time she put it on, she would be reminded of your generosity and your kindness (necks do get so cold!).  Was $58, now $40.60.

For your husband, the Graphic T-shirt.  You know your man secretly eyes your little boy's graphic tees and wants to have his own man-sized version of them.  This season, Boden has four English-themed tees for sale, sure to please the kid at heart.  I like this one above and the grey version with the bulldog.  Was $38, now $26.60.

For your Dad, the Short Line Harrington.  Your dad took good care of you all those years you were growing up, now's the time to shower him with something well made, practical, and warm.  This coat was $148, now $103.60.

For your daughter, the Ruffle Party Dress.  If your daughter is like CW, the combo of ruffles, pink, and pretty stars will have her "eeeeeee"-ing all morning.  She may even continue "eeeeeee"-ing into the afternoon.  Was $56, now $39.20.

For your son, the Exploration T-shirt.  This shirt is pretty cool, no pun intended, of course.  The little man in your life will show the world that no amount of ice, snow, and polar bears will stand in the way of his aspirations.  Or not.  He may just really like the dude with the beard and the snow goggles.  Unfortunately the other two (very very cool) t-shirt colors are all sold out, but maybe Boden will re-stock before the sale ends?  Was $24, now $16.80.

For your teen girl, the Chunky Hooded Cardigan.  This beautiful style is both practical (warm, hooded, and button-down) and pretty (the fair isle decoration is in style and in lovely shades).  This is a hot seller, but maybe you can grab yours for your young lady before they are all gone?  Was $78, now $54.60.

For the teen boy in your life, the Gilet.  Aren't teenaged boys impossible to shop for?  Add to that the fact that almost all boys Johnnie b. items are completely gone, it makes for a difficult shopping season for sure.  And since we all don't have hundreds of dollars to get them the latest IPAD, well, we need to get something.  He will like this coat since it is different enough from what he owned as a boy, but not all stodgy like his dad's, and his parents (if they are you or not) will love the fact that this coat will be in his closet for years and will wash very easily (no trips to the dry cleaners necessary).  Was $76, now $53.20.


For your littlest, tiniest, wee-est babies in your life, the Knitted Newborn Set.  Even if you can't get the baby the size they need (the smallest sizes are sold out), you could grab them in the next size up (I would get Angus a size 12-18 months).  These separates are wonderful together, but exceptionally versatile on their own.  Was $54, now $37.80.
