Fred Aldous, making Christmas stress free!

As much as everyone loves Christmas, sometimes it can just get a bit too stressful can't it!

What with organising the perfect Christmas Day complete with Dinner for 13, including one gluten intolerant Niece and a Vegan 'Niece's boyfriend'... Aunty Maureen, who hasn't spoken to Aunty Jean for 7 years and Grandad who won't eat anything vaguely unusual these days and will guaranteed demand everything stops for the Queen!

It all gets a bit complicated doesn't it!

Well Fred Aldous thought about this and on our website now you'll find the answer to your gift problems... making that difficult task a little less arduous giving you more time to spend on the million and one other things this festive season seems to throw your way.

Maybe you're working to budget, but still want to buy gifts that are relevant; and will be gratefully recieved, well now you can see at a glance what is within your budget, from £5 to over £25... you're sure to find something that's just right with a lot less hassle than trawling the High Street in the crush, only to find what you've wanted is out of stock. Of course you can always get your chosen items delivered to your door, with our delivery service, that will usually get the goods to you within a couple of days, allowing you more free time to get on with all the other little tasks Christmas throws you.Like writing the cards, decorating the tree

...and what if you haven't a clue what to buy for some people... Well we've thought about that too, you can simply search the most relevant category in our Christmas Gift Guide, which will take you directly to plenty of ideas for the little Princess, the Design Guru, or Eco warrior at home!

Take a look at the new Christmas Gift guide located at the top of our Home page on the Fred Aldous website and see how we can make this Christmas more fun for everyone... especially YOU!

It's that time of year again!

I guess there's just no getting away from it... Christmas is just around the corner. Shops on the High Street are decorating their windows, and Slade and Wizzard will be on a continual loop in the shopping centres and Malls across the country.

Our Swing card range from Santoro is always very popular and we now stock their new Festive range...with six great cards to choose from, they're almost a gift in themselves; a special way to send Yuletide greetings to friends and family.

Fred Aldous is always a great place to find all the gift ideas you need for friends and family who are crafty; and now we can also supply you with some great greeting cards , wrapping papers, and gift tags

If money's tight as I guess it is for many right now, the right wrapping paper makes your gift look all the more de luxe for very little money; and if you're crafty perhaps you might customize it yourself to make it totally unique, and remember, all these little details can make your Scrapbooking pages look particularly fantastic, so any left over bits and bobs you can get plenty of value out of...

Here at Fred's, each week new deliveries of stock are arriving with great boxed sets and Complete Collection Sets that make great presents... (that is besides the regular kits and sets we offer- see below!) They make a great solution for those arty types who are perhaps difficult to buy for, or, a real treat for yourself! Take a look to see if there's anything to tempt you, and let make sure you Santa know in plenty of time!

Party Animal!

Facebook seems to have become one of life's guilty pleasures, catching up with the latest gossip from your friends, seeing what they've been upto, and perhaps more embarrassingly showing them what state you got in last night, but as well as that it's also a great way to catch up on all your favourite groups, stores and stars.

One of our latest projects has a facebook fan page all it's own!

Utilising our new Laser Cutting services, Fred Aldous and launched the first in the range of animal head masks. The fantastic, PANDA! Quickly assembled into a fully three dimensional mask, it's a fun dress up idea or maybe even something to decorate your home with ... a brand new take on the old stuffed taxidermy mount. The range will grow into a whole menagerie of Lion, Moose, Frog, and many many more; all laser cut, from heavy weight card, and supplied with all the decal stickers to bring the mask to life and 'paws' and a 'tail 'to complete your look!!

The Panda Head page on facebook is the perfect place to show everyone your escapades whilst wearing your very own Panda head! , check it out next time your logged in!
