The Bargain Hunter: Kitchen essentials

Bargain Hunter regulars will be pleased to hear that Giordano Wines' incredible food, drink and kitchenware offer has returned for a third time. The offer is one of the most popular to have appeared in this column and, this time around, features eight Italian red wines, four Italian white wines, a selection of Italian delicacies (including grissini breadsticks, traditional tajarin egg noodles, cantucci biscuits, olive sauce, artichoke cream and sun-dried tomatoes with capers) and the incredible "amazing table" selection – a six-piece cook and serve dinner set decorated in a traditional Mediterranean style. The whole package is available for a staggering £59.95, including free delivery, although it continues only as long as current stocks last.

Every little helps

Basins galore

Bathroom specialist Victorian Plumbing has reduced the price of ceramic basins by 22 per cent on its website. Pick of a highly desirable bunch is a 550mm high gloss white vanity unit with chrome handles, a white ceramic basin and single tap hole, reduced from £115 to £89.95.
