The Urban Guide to the Countryside

Wouldn’t you though?

Heard of Tiger? It’s basically Denmark’s answer to Ikea – best described as the poshest, most stylish pound shop in the land where über cool and quirky Danish designs are sold in happy-go-lucky candy-coloured stores – My mum is going to LOVE it.


You can buy everything from glitter glue to reading glasses; scented candles to felt fruit baskets – all in rainbow colours and at bargain basement prices – 80 per cent of its products sell for £5 or less.

Tiger currently has 80 stores across the UK, none in Cornwall (yet), but there’s a chance to grab your passport and get it day-stamped in Devon because there are branches in Plymouth and Exeter – I feel a day trip is on the cards.


Ten coloured lights on a chain, £5

Tiger doesn’t sell online (sorrrrry) but you can check out all their store products on the website and plot how you’re going to revamp your entire house for under £50.


Drawer tidy, £10; mug with danish text saying KAERLIGHED (LOVE in English), £2
