Boxed gift sets.
« on: December 28, 2017, 11:27:28 AM »
One big moan from this old woman -

 I had some Lovely Christmas gifts this year and very grateful for them as well - but the flipping packaging is another story!!  >:(

Why do the manufacturers need to insert the smellies, miniature booze bottles etc into slots and then  glue them in before boxing them up!

Seriously i couldn't get into some of the flipping things!!
Actually tore the flesh on my fingers on one carton!

Actually needed the man of the house  ::)

 I know the presentation looks good but ---- What alternative could they use??? There has to be better ways and would I reckon cut the cost down !!

That glue is way too strong and really not needed -  >:( I got one of the gifts stuck to my flipping finger!!

Are they not listening to the warnings of plastics of all kinds and the danger it is doing!

Rant over!!

I had a large Stella cylindrical tin - bottle or tin & maybe a glass to drink it with - the problem being I have not been able to explore its inner wonderment yet!
Yes, I can open the lid, but there is a plastic insert which so far has refused to budge!
