Hints & Tips
Ah. The pre-Christmas period. Already the radio air-waves are full of Wizard, wishing it could be Christmas every day (really? awfully expensive), Noddy Holder shouting “Merry Christmas” in a voice like an over-stimulated Moose and Jona Lewie trying to stop the cavalry. How appropriate. Meanwhile, children are getting excited, even though it’s four weeks away (ish).
However, it is definitely time to think about presents and what to buy for Uncle Bill, Auntie Maud and little cousin Jack. There’s no use putting it off, no matter how hard you find it. This is why my valued colleague Dick offered up a nice little short list of presents yesterday in his, as usual, helpful and informative blog.
Now, to return to Jona Lewie, his other hit was, of course, ‘You will Always Find Me in the Kitchen At Parties’. Well maybe that’s true for Mr Lewie and many other people but you will always find me in the shed at parties, trying to ignore everyone, keep out of the way of our flirtatious neighbour Bonnie wielding a large sprig of mistletoe, tinkering with my old lawnmower and having a crafty glass of Wilbur’s Stonking Colly-Wobbler. In the interests of the festive season however, I will attempt to offer a further three Christmas present ideas to add to Dick’s. Three Wise Gifts if you will.
1. Give the Gift of Firewood.
It’s going to be cold, so we’re told, and probably soon. Making firewood can be a backbreaking and exhausting process involving sharp edges, cold hands and effort. Alternatively it can be easy, effortless, fast and safe. So, why not think about an MD 4-Ton Electric Log Splitter.
Officially the best value electric splitter in the UK market it is loved by our customers who have given it 5 stars in reviews. Here’s a sample… “Excellent product…” “SUPERB.” “Should have got one years ago…” “…absolutely fantastic!” and my favourite “Wow…1st class product”If Good King Wenceslas had had one of these he could have helped that poor man turn the Winter fuel into firewood very quickly. This excellent log splitter is on pre-Christmas sale at a special price of £149.95 plus FREE UK delivery.
2. Blow Away The Pre-Christmas Blues
Snow will fall (it is already falling according to Shakin’ Stevens on my radio) so this Oleo-Mac Artik 52 Single-Stage Petrol Snow Blower
is the perfect, affordable, solution to the perils of the chilly white stuff, which can stop you from working or going about your daily business. Available from us at an amazing special price of £249, again with FREE delivery, it is solid, reliable and easy to use.
3. Big Red Tractor
Big, red, smart and looking like something a grown up boy might put on his list to Santa, this Lawnflite 703 RT Lawn Tractor gives you a great finish on your lawn, has a Briggs & Stratton engine and is being offered until Christmas at the BLACK Friday price of £1499.00. WHAT? No, really. Treat yourself to one for next season… I think you’ll find it hard to get this sort of value at this price again.
And that’s it. Three Wise Gifts for Christmas. Less trivial than my usual stuff I know, but finding the right presents is a serious business! Enjoy your garden… and your present buying. Drew Hardy
