Get Ready For Christmas with Black & Decker®

Getting ready for Christmas can be a stressful time. With all that needs to be organised from presents to dressing the tree you might find yourself looking for a helping hand and some simple straightforward solutions.

The extensive product portfolio from Black & Decker® includes many items that will take some of the stress out of the hectic Christmas preparation. Take wrapping presents for example; a fundamental part of Christmas prep but it can often be fiddly and time consuming.

Pick up a pair of Black & Decker® 3.6 v Powered Scissors, they quickly and easily cut through a range of materials and boast a 45-minute run time. The cordless, go anywhere design allows you to get on with the wrapping wherever you want - on the sofa with a glass of wine or while hiding from the kids in the garage!

When it comes to the all-important Christmas tree, you can often be left feeling that it is not quite as picture perfect as it first appeared. With the Black & Decker® HANDISAW™ Cordless Powered Saw you can trim those random branches with ease, stopping the lounge resembling an overgrown forest. This ‘go anywhere’ tool makes light work of all cutting tasks with no need for the normal sweat, fear and frustration associated with sawing. Come the 4th January, the HANDISAW will also make light work of preparing your tree for collection.

Perhaps one of the biggest Christmas complaints are those pesky pine needles. Instead of wheeling out the big vacuum cleaner everyday to, try out the Dustbuster® Pivot Vac. This compact cyclonic cordless hand vac has a pivoting nose that locks into ten different cleaning positions so no matter where those needles are making a nuisance of themselves they’ll soon be off the floor in no time.

And finally, if you’ve got a lot of driving to do over the festive period the last thing you’ll need is a low car battery. Gone are the days of waiting around for the rescue team or scrambling around under the bonnet, now you don’t even have to leave your car.

The new Black & Decker® SIMPLE START™ battery booster gives a failing battery the boost it needs to restart in minutes, without the need of jump cables. All you need do is plug the device into the cigarette lighter, wait just 15 minutes and you’ll be back on your way to visit those relatives without the fear of missing the turkey and trimmings!
