No major news – we’ve only gone and changed our domain name! As of April 1st 2017, Frivolous Spending will from this day forth be known as Wantful.co.uk.

In line with the products that we aggregate, we wanted something sleek, simple and most of all, appealing. We didn’t feel that the old domain offered those things. Too long. Too hard to spell after one drink too many (just when you’re most likely to go online and purchase an inflatable unicorn). So, we began the process of re-branding and eventually arrived at Wantful. Fitting, huh?

Wantful (Adjective)
Full of want or desire.

When you see that chocolate teapot, you know deep down that it’s a waste of money, but you’re so full of want and desire that you buy it anyway. And there you have it. Don’t worry, by re-branding we really just mean changing the URL and logo. We will continue to provide you with the same old oddities and wonders that eCommerce offers. No change there. Although, should you come across the odd error, please let us know via the contact us form.

Some of us have been waiting 20 years for this day to come, when we could actually follow in the footsteps of the (somehow still teenage) Ash Ketchum as we set off on our journey of becoming the very best.

The Pokémon Go phenomenon has swept across the globe, sucking in players of all ages, who have spent the last week or so wandering the streets in search of that elusive Scyther or another Magikarp in our quest to get that 400 candy Gyarados. Jobs have been quit, dead bodies have been uncovered and, in Nintendo’s case, a whole lot of money has been made. The news, social media and talk of the town is awash with this genius creation and is unlikely to cease any time soon… There’s just one minor problem…

SERVER ISSUES. So many server issues. Luckily for you, we’ve spent our Pokémon Go-less time putting together this list of cute Pokémon products that will enhance your Pocket Monsters addiction:

Amazon is currently the sixth highest ranked website on the World Wide Web, based on page views, unique visitors and time spent browsing the online store.

Having surpassed Walmart as the most valuable retailer in the United States and operating around the globe, Amazon is somewhat synonymous with the Internet – if you’re online, chances are you’ve bought something from or, at the very least, browsed the famed retail website.

It is unsurprising, then, that trolley-loads of articles have been written about Amazon, from their tax-dodging antics to illegal items and oddities – but ‘Funny Amazon reviews’ have always been my favourite. But, as a Brit, I can’t help but notice that our hysterical reviews often go unmentioned. We’re funny too and we deserve to be noticed!

Dad, Daddy, Father, Pops, Papa. Whatever you call yours, fathers do a lot for us over the years. They teach us how to ride a bike or kick a ball, how to shave or do up a tie, as well as plenty of life lessons that will remain with us all the way through life. Yet, we are all letting down our dads!

Statistics show that children in the United Kingdom spend an average of just £10.00 on Father’s Day gifts, just a third of the amount that we spend on our mums on their special day, and it’s just not on.

Part of the problem is that dads are so much harder to find gifts for. While all mums will tell you that they want flowers, chocolates, wine or the latest book about olden day midwives or whatever, asking dad for ideas will likely be answered with a ‘dunno’, ‘nothing’ or ‘anything’.

Don’t worry though, we have the man’s answer to ‘flowers, chocolate or wine’ – BEER, MEAT and DIY! Most dads like them all, but they are guaranteed to like at least one of the three.
