Sunglasses - Rayban's wayfarer style suits almost everybody and are worn by everyone from music festival goers to seasoned sailors. They are easy enough to get your hands on - being sold at department stores and airports around the world. But for big savings it is best to go online and get them directly from the manufacturer. We priced a pair of men's black aviators with a green lens (RB3025).

Best €148, (free shipping)

Hmm €172, Debenhams

Save €24 - enough to buy a round of beers to enjoy in the sunshine


Is there anyone left in the country who has not caught the cooking buzz? Whether your preference is for paleo pancakes or hearty stews, kitchens around the country are busy with wannabe chefs. One of this column's favourite sources of inspiration is The Happy Pear cookbook. It's written by David and Stephen Flynn, the brothers behind the eponymous health food cafe in Greystones, Co Wicklow. Their book is bursting with vegetable-based recipes, perfect for anyone working on their bikini body.

Best €16.99, Bookstation

Hmm €26.85, Eason

Save €9.86 - and add it to your ingredients fund

New TV

Have you been waiting for weeks for that all-important rugby match? Why watch it on a bog-standard television. High-definition TVs are more affordable than ever. The 32-inch Toshiba 32W2433DB is a decent choice - it is affordable, has two HDMI sockets to connect to Netflix via Google Chrome or Apple TV, can access Saorview and is not so big that it will dwarf your bedroom or living room.

Best €220.99, Argos

Hmm €349, Littlewoods

Save €127.99 - a whopping saving. Use the difference to snap up some speakers for surround sound


Can't face another Saturday spent at the garden centre? Why not fling yourself out of a plane. Skydiving will get even the most jaded hearts beating faster, and doesn't require any particular level of fitness. Pick your provider wisely though, as some are pricier than others. We priced a once-off tandem jump.

Best €265 (when booked online), Skydive Ireland

Hmm €285,

Save €20 - enough for a congratulatory light lunch.
