I hope all’s well… as always.
I’ve been away from The Q this past week following a little visit to the doc – nothing serious to report and I was hoping to be back this week but best laid plans and all that mean I’ll be away for a few days longer.
If you’re a “Facebooker” you might (or might not 😉 ) be interested to know that QVC has started up a page for yours truly! …I know, I’m as shocked as you are. It’s all a bit new to me as I’ve not really used Facebook before so I hope you’ll forgive any schoolboy errors I might make, at least to start with.
It would great if you followed my page and please feel free to get in touch, but if you have an urgent product enquiry please contact QVC’s main page as although my page is overseen by our customer services team, I would want you to get the speediest answer to your query.
It’ll be interesting to see how it goes and I’ll definitely be posting some fun pictures and videos, particularly from behind the scenes.
Talking of fun … I hope you can join Andi Peters tomorrow (the 10th) not once but twice! First at 1pm and then 6pm for two hours.
Tomorrow also sees the much anticipated return of our Festive Christmas Meat Hamper from family-run butchers Althams. I know many of our customers have been asking about it already and I’m delighted to say we have an almost identical offering as last year but this year it’s a Today’s Special Value (TSV)!!
It pre-launches 9pm tonight and will feature throughout the day tomorrow, including the three hours with Andi.
The hamper includes all of the meat you probably need for your festive celebration, delivered to your door in time for Christmas. Enjoy joints of turkey, beef and gammon, as well as sausage meat stuffing, streaky bacon, and pork and cranberry sausages! Merry Christmas!! Quality meats to treat you and your family and friends at a great price.
Althams are based in the Lake District, Lancashire and Yorkshire, giving them access to the best of British meat. They are also one of the oldest and largest independent, family-owned and run butchers in the country – with James and Rick Altham still being involved in the farming and butchery.
Your hamper will contain:
- 2kg British Turkey Breast – approx’ serves 6 – 8
- 1kg British Beef Topside Joint – approx’ serves 4 – 6
- 1kg British Gammon Joint – approx’ serves 4 – 6
- 454g British Pork, Sage & Onion Sausage meat Stuffing
- 454g British Streaky Bacon Pack
- 454g British Pork & Cranberry Sausages
The hamper is delivered frozen and beautifully packed in its own freezer box ready for putting straight into your own freezer or to be defrosted in your fridge, as desired. At this stage you’re just placing your advanced order, as the hampers will be making their way to you in December and you’ll not be charged until they’re on their way! With everything to consider coming up to Christmas it’s great to know your meat is sorted for the celebrations.
If you love your food you may be interested to hear that we have a “QVC Kitchen” at the BBC Good Food Show that runs from the 28th of November until the 2nd December at The Birmingham NEC. We are able to offer our customers discounted tickets (I believe 25% 😉 ) by quoting QVC at checkout! For further details visit the food show page here (terms and conditions apply).
On Saturday, we also have an amazing TSV deal from Amazon with a superb bundle comprising the fantastic Amazon Echo Show Smart Display (Generation 5), plus an Amazon Echo Dot (Generation 3) and an Amazon Smart Plug! I’m not at liberty to divulge the price yet but it’s going to be amazing compared to buying these three tech items individually!
The Amazon Echo Show with it’s new smart display once connected to the web, offers a huge array of infotainment all controlled by the fast, intelligent responsive Alexa, who not only listens to your commands but can also “show” them to you – literally playing videos or showing pictures, menus, etc.
It’s little brother the Echo Dot Smart Speaker packs quite a punch when it comes to playing your favourite music or reading out news and search results, despite its diminutive neat mesh fabric covered size – the cherry on the top of this exciting ‘tech cake’ is the inclusion of the Smart Plug that can take commands from Alexa, switching on or off connected appliances such as lamps and kettles.
The wirelessly connected smart home is not just the future, it’s the now and this fab TSV sets you up nicely as a starter or to add to your existing Alexa smart home ecosystem.
You’ve probably noticed that we have lots of great flash offers at the moment – well the good news is that you can look forward to many more in the run up to Christmas – so watch out for our Festive Find treats throughout the coming weeks. Plus, we are currently offering £1.95 P+P on beauty items (a few items, such as tools are excluded) as well as on many fashion items from your favourite brands.
Did you know? Our popular evening Bargain Hunter has now changed times – you can now enjoy your evening offer just before 8pm! And any item ordered as a gift now benefits from our wonderful Christmas Money Back Guarantee – extended to the 25th of January 2020!!
Just some of the many reasons to shop with us here at The Q this Christmas!
Well that’s all from me… until next time stay well fed and organised,
Hope you keep up your blogs here. I don’t do Facebook etc. It would be a shame if all presenters move away from these blogs.
Looking forward to the festive food event.
Hi Elaine – I’ll keep blogging don’t worry x
I hope all the presenters still keep their blogs here as I am not on Facebook . I really enjoy reading all the blogs .

Now that the table of taste is no more, it’s starting to look like any other QVC food show, and that is a pity.
