Get your new room feeling nice and homely with this little lot.

Chat pillows

Curtains, bedding and pillows are the easiest way to make your new room feel a little less clinical. These pillows are brightly coloured and eye-catching and will really add a burst of character. Choose from ‘WTF’, ‘LOL’ and ‘OMG’ – you can be sure they’ll be a conversation starter. Best of all they’re super fleecy so will be soft and cosy for the winter.

World’s largest coffee cup


Get your caffeine boost and then some with this totally amazing cup. Holding 20 cups-worth of java, this cup allows you to dodge the tea run and sit down to endless episodes of Jezza. It’s made from porcelain so it looks cool and it’ll even go in the dishwasher – if you can cram it in amongst those weeks and weeks worth of dishes that is. Just make sure you’ve got someone to carry it around for you, that bad boy can get heavy.
