TUX

Say ‘hello’ to TUX, he’s a plywood penguin that has literally flown off the snowhome shelves this weekend. At only £4 we’re sure he’s going to be the perfect Christmas accessory. TUX flat packs into a standard C6 envelope (see Johns packaging design above) which makes him a perfect mail out gift.

Click here to purchase your very own TUX.

An even bigger success on the snowhome shelves over the weekend was TUX mini’s. A set of 12 mini flat pack penguins for £10.90 (see in image above) unfortunately after one day on the shelves they were out of stock, but do not fear, we will add them to the snowhome website as soon as more stock comes our way.

Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

RICH TEA

No.3 in an ongoing series of products that we believe deliver value for money ( first class stamp and paracetemol are previous suggestions )

Rich tea were developed up here in Yorkshire in the seventeenth century .
The budget pack costs 23p and never fails to deliver a nostalgic yet deeply satisfying dunking experience. I haven’t calculated the exact cost per biscuit but it can’t be much more than a penny and you don’t get much for a penny these days.

OBJECTIFIED


A design that is not celebrated enough!

While swapping over some keys today, I have just realised what a GREAT design the split ring is. Angus and I are constantly discussing products that are just perfect, we have a big list of products we know are perfect in every way, Bic biro’s, paper clips, the list goes on….in fact we will probably post a list on the blog sometime. Anyway I think this is something that is almost always forgotten but yet I can guarantee that everybody who owns a set of keys has one. How many people own a set of keys!?

PARACETAMOL

Paracetamol are number 2 in an ongoing series of posts concerning value for money.
This is the reason why: I woke up feeling bad, with the kind of headache that means you cant open your eyes properly or move your head too fast. I purchased a pack of the above tablets for the price of 39p and took two, Within 40 minutes I was back to normal again. There are still 14 left in the packet – enough for 7 similar events. Less than 5p a time. I would have gladly paid more to relieve my symptoms so value for money in my pain free mind.
Number 3 coming soon….

FIRST CLASS STAMP

Petrol prices went up again yesterday to £1.20 a litre and it prompted a discussion about what constitutes value for money these days. As a result we will occasionally post our own ideas of products or services that we believe still offer good value for our hard earned cash.

My first nomination is the first class letter stamp, the price is currently 39p and will rise to 41p on 6th April. I know that there are moaners who like to knock the postal service and price that they pay for it but I guarantee they would be moaning a lot louder if they were hand delivering to Aberdeen, London, Truro, Hull or Cardiff ( or anywhere else ). I’m happy to pay the 39p, peel off the stamp, stick it to my envelope, pop it in a post box in the knowledge that it will be landing on the destination doormat the next morning.
