Unfortunately, we’re all guilty of buying people gifts for the sake of it, buying gift boxes of toiletries which often end up being re-gifted or used in a tombola. But what about people something useful this year, like a fire safety gift or two?
However much we think it’ll never happen, anyone could be the victim of a fire, big or small. It puts lives at risk and cause extensive damage to people’s properties. With measures in place, you can prevent a fire, or at least stop a small fire escalating and evacuate everyone to safety.
Here are three unusual gifts which we’re considering giving ourselves this year.
The Designer Firephant Extinguisher
A stylish and contemporary choice of fire extinguisher, instead of being hidden away in a kitchen cupboard, whoever receives it will proudly want to have this one out on show. After all, how many extinguishers do you know that have won a design award?
But it isn’t just a talking point. This fire extinguisher does a cracking job at putting out fires too. Manufactured by Kidde, you know the Firephant good. The 1kg powder is suitable Class A, B and C fires, including wood, paper, oil, petrol, and electrical appliances.
With a mounting bracket, it’s lightweight too. To use, you pull a pin, aim at the fire, and then press the release button.
Although, if you’re wanting to pay designer prices, any of our other home fire extinguishers are just as reliable in an emergency.
The Swarovski Smoke Alarm
Available in black, gold, red and silver, this unique design means that even the smoke alarm will look absolutely fabulous. Covered in Swarovski elements, this means you can remain safe and stylish.
But you’re not just paying for the design, it’s also a top of the range smoke alarm too. The dual-sensing heat and smoke alarm also features a battery with a 12 year lifespan, meaning that’s another worry off your mind.
You can mount it either using screws provided, or with the magnetic gel pad to fit it onto your ceiling with no fuss or mess.
If you have a room that just needs that something special to bring it to life, your search is over. But again, if you’re not wanting to pay those designer prices, then all of our battery smoke alarms are more than suitable for alerting you when things are amiss.
A Fireproof Safe
When it comes to keeping your valuables safe, as well as invaluable precious memories, having a fireproof chest to store them in is the only sure-fire way to protect them. Not only does it give protection fire and smoke, but they’re also waterproof and able to withstand floodwater for up to 24 hours.
People choose to store their passports, birth certificates, pictures, electrical items, and even their stash of Christmas cash and vouchers. That’s because they also allow the items to be stored under lock and key, which means opportunities thefts are prevented too.
Available in a wide range of sizes and prices, you’ll find a fireproof safe to suit their needs and your budget.
In reality, it’s something every home should consider to store those items we couldn’t bear to live without, or afford to replace.
What Every Home Needs
In reality, every home must have a minimum of one smoke alarm on every floor of your home, with a fire blanket and extinguisher an advantage in the kitchen.
At this time of year, you perhaps need them more than at any other time. Your home is full of potentially-flammable decorations, crammed full of people, and cooking more food than at any other time of the year.
Things do go wrong, so make sure your home – and the homes of your loved ones – are fully kitted out, regardless of whether you buy from our designer or economy ranges.
