Cheaper alternative: what was wrong with an hourglass anyway?
What they really want: Apple iPad
Cheaper alternative: who remembers Etcha Sketch? Best toy I ever owned!
What she really wants: perfume by Gucci or Dior
Cheaper alternative: walk past the fancy stands and head to the end of the aisle – always a bargain to be had.

Cheaper alternative: re-wrap the cashmere jumper you gave him last year, he will never know!
What she really wants: Chanel lipstick
Cheaper alternative: a red Sharpie pen comes in more colours and you could probably buy hundreds more for the same price 🙂

Cheaper alternative: mix some left over coffee grounds with yoghurt and she might even get a tan too…
