Keep This Cracker offers an eco-friendly alternative to normal crackers - ‘Gift Box Crackers’ you can reuse. They go bang like standard crackers but separate into two parts without tearing. Our patent pending construction allows you easily to replace the old snap with a new one. We use less packaging as our reusable crackers come flat-packed and ready-made; just pop them into shape and fill with your own special gifts. Designed by Bea Thackeray and made in the UK.

Tog Knives are a must for serious cooks
Tog Knives
Glenside, Oxleaze Lane, Dundry, Bristol, BS41 8LA
phone: +44 (0)117 276 0273

Tog knives are, according to many top chefs, the best money can buy. They're superbly sharp and durable and they make preparing food a joy. 

Designed by industrial designer Rob Beagley-Brown, a Tog knife is a hand-made, batch-produced artisan product. The blades are forged in Japan's Seki City - home of the Samurai sword - from a unique steel that contains three different metals. A high carbon core gives them their incredible edge. The beautiful handles are made for us in Sheffield using the Norwegian material Kebony maple (a durable and eco-friendly alternative to tropical hardwood); and the knives, which are intended to last for decades, come with a lifetime guarantee (*but don't put them in the dishwasher!).
 
Phil Howard, chef and co-owner of two Michelin-starred The Square restaurant in London's Mayfair says this about his Tog knife: 'I'm not a knife geek but I do love a truly great knife. My Tog is one such piece of crucial kit.'

At Lindleywood we design and hand-make original, fun wooden bird boxes and other products for home and garden. We also use only British suppliers; so we buy our sustainable European redwood pine from a local wood-merchant and use hardwearing non-toxic wood paints from an independent UK manufacturer. Our products are often in the national media, such as on ITV's Love Your Garden and The Alan Titchmarsh Show. They make ideal gifts for all occasions where you want to give something that's well-made and unique.
