Great news this week. Our brand new essentials by post autumn catalogues have launched and are packed full with over 140 brand new practical, fun and unusual gadgets and accessories for your home, garden, DIY and travel. Be the first to view the new collection online (www.essentialsbypost.co.uk).
There are so many new gadgets to choose from this autumn including home gadgets. One of my absolute favourites is the Oh-So Light Expanding Hose which automatically expands up to 3 times its original length when the water is turned on and contracts when the water is turned off. Take a look at the fantastic video we have of it below.
If you love to cook, but always end up having to serve cold food due to the lack of room in the oven, then our Microwaveable Hot Plate is the answer. You can keep food piping hot as well as beautifully chilled for up to an hour with this clever hot plate.
Prevent draughts this autumn and winter when the nights start to draw in with our beautiful Sheep Draught Excluder which features a family of 8 woolly sheep complete with tails, eyes and endearing expressions. It will guarantee a smile even on the chilliest of nights.
If you like to start the day with a strong coffee or a good cup of tea then our Coffee Press and Tea Infusers are for you. Just add coarsely ground coffee or tea leaves to the Infuser, dip it into the boiling water, allow to brew and press to release the full flavour – delicious!
Finally, have more fun in the shower with this brilliant Light-up LED Shower Head which lights up the water in different colours depending on the temperature. Eau so clever!
