Calling all Disney fans…

Published

Disney fans will be pleased to hear about a new Disney-themed Christmas advent calendar filled with cosy gifts! 

Advent calendars are no longer a crappy chocolate before school, you can get perfumes, nail varnishes, and even boozy ones to count down the mornings to the big day! 

One thing you can never have too many of though, is comfy socks. 

The Disney-themed calendar will set you back £30 and features all your favourite characters, including Simba from Lion King, Olaf from Frozen and even Mickey Mouse.

Boots

There are 11 pairs to count down the mornings, ending on a super fluffy pair for a cold and wintry Christmas morning. 

Speaking of the product, Disney says: “This Christmas calendar makes the perfect choice for any Disney enthusiast.

“Filled with Disney-themed socks from Mickey Mouse to Olaf, treat your feet to 11 ankle socks and a special cosy sock on the 12th day.

“Your day will be instantly elevated with a sprinkle of Disney Magic!”

Boots

The advent calendar was also available last year and proved seriously popular with fans!  

If you’re more into wizards than magical princesses, there’s also an incredible Harry Potter version of the calendar available in Boots for £40.

And if one of those won’t do for you, there are 28 different options available in Boots – so you’re bound to find the perfect one for you and all your family!

You can now buy hot water bottle covers designed specifically for your feet

Layered socks, be gone!

Published

Amazon

Now that winter is in full swing, Amazon is selling hot water bottles with built-in pouches especially for your feet.

Okay, it’s no secret that hot water bottles are a God send throughout the winter months for everyone but, for those of us who feel the cold more than others, they can be a necessity.

So it is fantastic news that someone has invented a hot water bottle cover designed especially for feet.

Amazon

Priced ajust £16.55, the ‘heated foot warmer’ contains a compartment big enough for a 2L hot water bottle as well as a large pouch for you to slip your feet into to keep them nice and toasty.

The product’s description even claims to stay warm for a couple of hours, so if you suffer from icy cold feet in bed, the hot water bottle will stay warm enough just to see you off to sleep. 

And the online reviews speak for themselves; one happy (and very warm) customer wrote: “I have struggled with bad circulation and icy feet for a long time. Thick socks and other things did not do the trick. This product solved my cold feet problem in a matter of minutes! Extremely soft and comfortable and very easy to use.”

Another customer described them as ‘life changing’, writing: “I use it with woollen socks and the HWB stays warm enough for a couple of hours. Absolute luxury!”

Amazon

Though this isn’t the only new hot water bottle revolutionising the market at the moment; back in October, a hot water bottle ‘pouch’ that straps around the waist went viral for it’s ‘miracle’ cramping relief.

Amazon’s description of the product, which comes with a cute koala covering, highlights how it will also provide relief for those suffering from health conditions such as arthritis, pulled or strained muscles and headaches, as well as both hot and cold therapy.

B&M is selling a hanging egg chair especially for your cat

Because our cats deserve only the best this Christmas

B&M has pulled out all the stops this winter with the launch of its new hanging egg chair designed especially for cats.

Now, anyone who has owned a cat will know that they deserve (and expect) nothing but the very best; so what better way to show them your love than with a luxury hanging egg chair?

B&M took to social media to reveal their revolutionary new product, writing: “You’re all fans of our sell-out egg chair – so now we’ve launched a new version…. For cats!

“This rattan effect egg chair is in stores soon (some lucky people have already picked one up!) so don’t miss out! Who’s feline the need to pick this up?!”

Putting awful cat puns to one side, the chair, which is priced at £55, has already proved to be a massive hit with shoppers online, with the post racking up thousands of comments and reactions across various platforms within just a few hours. 

One social media user commented: “Oh, I must have that for my cats!”, while another tagged a friend, saying: “I don’t mean to influence you, but wouldn’t Peanut look cute in one…”.

The chair doesn’t seem to be available on the B&M website yet and no set release date has been announced, so it’s worth keeping an eye out in your local branch and on the website in the next week or so – because our cats deserve only the very best.

This comes after Aldi sent shoppers into a frenzy earlier this year with the launch of its very own wicker egg cat bed, which came as part of their new Eco Pet range.

The cat egg chair was made from hand-woven natural wicker, was hung from a strong metal frame and was, as you can imagine, too cute for words.

You can get baubles of your favourite tea and condiments for your Christmas tree

You’ll either love them or you’ll hate them…

Marmite

If you’re resenting the idea of digging out your mums’ handed down baubles for another year, the unlikely hero Marmite may just be able to put your woes to bed.

The distinctively flavoured spread – which has been dividing opinions across the nation since the dawn of time – has unveiled its Christmas range which includes a number of admittedly bizarre condiment-themed baubles. 

There are four different baubles to choose from – a personal favourite of mine is the PG Tips bauble, which resembles a very small and very cute box of PG Tips teabags.

Other designs include a miniature Marmite bauble, which you’re guaranteed to either love or hate (sorry) and a Colman’s Mustard bauble, for all those who love the yellow stuff. 

Or, if you’re more of a mayo kind of person, you can purchase a bauble replica of a jar of Hellmann’s Mayonnaise. Picture that up on the tree. 

And if you still need a bit of convincing, 100% of the net proceeds made from the unique baubles will be donated to the Trussell Trust – a UK charity working to stop UK hunger and poverty.

So not only will your new baubles give you something to talk about with the cousins you only see once a year, but you can feast upon your turkey content with the knowledge that your money is helping others.

Now that’s the festive spirit. 

The baubles are limited edition and will be available to buy in a set of four for £25 on the Marmite website from December 1st.
