    Default Do you have a "Gift Bed"?

    The latest must have, according to CHuntley.

    A "Gift Bed" is when you leave some L'Occitane bathing products, hand creams etc. on the fresh towels you leave out on the bed for your guests to use while they're staying with you, and to take away with them when they leave.

    I've ordered several sets for my three homes and I'll have to improvise as all my guest rooms are en-suite.



    She also mentioned "stocking-up for (whispers) Christmas"- it's STARTED!

    Well when people come to me they are usually on a very limited baggage flight so I do supply toiletries for them, but they are either 3 for 2 type from Boots or unused bits that I have be given as part of a set and not interested in.

    If they were coming on a very regular basis I would probably just keep their own stuff here.

    She must leave a lot of hair products for smelly wax man as if her SM is to be believed they are barely apart.

    She really has become far too silly. They have never drawn me into the faux QVC family! Anyway they seem to have stopped saying that now. I find the whole ethos they project getting more and more repulsive. Silly, vain presenters who to me have become ridiculous and more or less unwatchable. There is a very silly clique of presenters running the show. How much longer can this go on? It won’t be long before they begin to notice that their sales do not reflect what has been on air. It will eventually dawn on them that the presenters are turning viewers away and many people are just shopping on line avoiding the nauseating presentations.

    What is it with people. Ryan Air has the worst customer relations in the history of commerce yet they make money hand over fist because no matter what they do people just keep right on booking with them. I know the whole thing about cheap flights but I’ve never been convinced that was true when you add on the “extras like wanting a seat or go to the toilet “ diverted to airports miles away from you thought you were going and just by coincidence the fee for a refund costs exactly the price of the ticket therefore the refund in Nil.

    I see a lot of RA in Q. They both treat the customers with disdain and they keep coming back for more.

    Okay, I put my hands up and say yes I have been buying Xmas presents. I always buy when the sales are on and put away.

    I only have one bed in my flat so with the cat and me sharing it no room for leaving L'Occitane etc out on it.

    Knowing Chuntley, it will be soaps in the shape of willies and boobs.

    When I first saw the title of the thread I had visions of using your under bed storage to house the present stash, when the traditional present drawer will hold no more!

    Instead we are expected to make like a boutique hotel!

    I have a stash of toiletries still, and I tell guests to let me know if they need anything, but all I put out for them is clean towels. Q still having delusions about their customer base. They need to get real.

    CHuntley also persuaded me to buy several sets of L'Occitane foot cream, for the people I know who are on their feet all day. She's gifted sets to her hairdresser, postie (who's lovely). All I can say is that the lollipop lady I accidentally splashed when driving through a puddle one day and the Big Issue seller outside my local supermarket are both in for a treat.
