Post Christmas can be a great time for starting new hobbies to keep hands and minds busy during the dark winter evenings. The WHSmith shelves will be packed with magazines on art, crafts and design to provide the spur for a new interest.

In order to start getting crafty, you are going to need to stock up on supplies. If its art you are interested in, a Derwent Academy 35 piece sketching and colouring wooden box gift set (£41.99) has everything you’ll need to start including  colouring, watercolour and sketching pencils, a sketch book, sharpener, eraser and brush – all kept neatly together in a wooden case.

If you are planning to dabble in painting, the Daler-Rowney Simply Jumbo watercolour bundle pack or Jumbo acrylic bundle pack includes an A3 watercolour or acrylic pad, a set of 12 watercolour or acrylics, 10 brushes and a round plastic palette for mixing your paints in, all presented in an A3 art bag. The bundle packs cost £34.99 each.

If you are into making memories, scrapbooking is a great way to save mementos from trips, days out, gatherings of friends or once-in-a-lifetime events. Arranging them in a book means you are far more likely to browse through them and relive the day (or days) than you are to flick through pictures forgotten in a folder on your desktop. Scrapbooks can also make a brilliant gift to present family or friends with ready for a birthday trip down memory lane. There are all kinds of scrap books styles with elegant, fun or plain covers. So The Adventure Begins (£10.99) or Wander, Explore, Discover (£16.99) would be perfect to scrapbook a holiday.  The marble-effect large scrapbook album (£16.99) could chart the history of romance between newlyweds. And the Sparkle pop Stay Magical reversible sequin scrapbook (£13.99) is a pleasure just to touch with sequins that can be stroked to reveal a different pattern. To make sure your scraps stay stuck in the book, there are glues, but be a rebel and arrange them casually on the page and fix with colourful washi tape (£2.95).

Don't forget to look for a discount code, and start your new pastime with a saving!

For music lovers, WHSmith was a place to go to spend hours flicking through vinyl records and cassette tapes, then later CDs. Though much of music is streamed and shuffled now, WHSmith still has an impressive selection of albums available on CD and on vinyl – which never went away and instead has enjoyed a real revival. Stock up on the latest releases like Adele’s 30  in CD for £12.99 and vinyl for £29.99, Elton John’s The Lockdown Sessions at £14.99 for a CD or ABBA’s new Voyage album for £31.99.

If you are buying albums for the first time, you’ll need a turntable to play them on, and WHSmith supply those, too (along with a selection of speakers and headphones). Spin your sounds on the JAM Sound Turntable, which has three speeds and built-in speakers. It comes in a black or wood surround and both cost £79.99. If you want one something that will suit both your analogue and digital collection, the Jam Black Spun Out Bluetooth turntable has wireless connectivity so you can stream records to any Bluetooth speaker. It comes in wood or dark grey and is priced at £99.99.

If your idea of a great evening is to grab a bowl of popcorn and binge on your favourite boxset, you can do that with WH Smith’s collection of film and TV programmes. Enjoy some classic comedy with the anarchic medics of M*A*S*H (£39.99) fighting the horrors of war with humour. Or watch Harry Potter go from his first wizarding year through to his graduation battling the evil Voldemort with a box of all eight films (£46.99) – perfect for keeping the kids entertained for the better part of a day.

About WHSmith

For a retailer with a long history, few could match WHSmith, which has been selling newspapers since 1792! News vendor Henry Walton Smith and his wife, Anna, started the business in London. It was taken over by their son William Henry – the WH – later joined by his son, also William Henry. They took advantage of the railway boom of the Victorian era and branched out into selling newspapers at stations to a new breed of customer – the commuter. At one point the thriving company even ran a library service and a publishing business.WHSmith grew to become the go-to for newspapers, magazines, all manner of stationery, school and art essentials, gift wrap, cards and diaries, as well as music and books and even toys and games. It is still somewhere for rail travellers to nip into for a bar of chocolate and something to read for a journey, for gift buyers looking for the perfect present/card/wrapping to treat a loved one, or for students needing supplies for school or uni. For all your stationery needs, browse through the WHSmith website and grab your self a bargain buy with a discount code.
