B&M shoppers have been sent into a frenzy over its new Christmas decorations, but there’s one in particular that has been selling out – and for the most heartwarming reason.
With B&M being branded an essential retailer amid the coronavirus lockdown, shoppers have been able to stock up on all of their necessities – which includes festive decorations.
Among the tinsel and Christmas trees is a bauble which eagled-eyed fans have claimed has a ‘hidden feature’, reports Manchester Evening News.
The £2 silver sequin-encrusted ornament in the shape of a heart, has an opening where you can put items inside.
But some people have been using it to put ashes inside – a gesture towards those who can’t be with us during this festive time.
One shopper said: “Thank you to the person that posted the other day about these ornaments to put ashes in… got one for each close member of my family and put a little card with a message on each one.”
Another wrote: “It’s a beautiful idea for beautiful Angels xxx”
A third B&M fan said: “Aww that’s a lovely idea and beautiful ornament.”
The bauble has been so popular that it has been selling out at most stores and people are struggling to find it, so if you can’t manage to get your hands on them, it is also selling a Christmas Magic Glass Locket with Glitter Decoration which is very similar.
But not all B&M’s Christmas ornaments have been so heartwarming, as one woman spotted an X-rated detail on a sweet reindeer.
The woman was on the hunt for a few new festive decorations in her local B&M store when she came across a white reindeer statue.
Thinking it would look perfect on her mantelpiece this Christmas, she picked it up to put it in her basket.
But as she turned it upside down in search of the price tag, she came across a very realistic-looking set of male genitals – and people on Facebook found the detail hilarious, with one person writing: “Well at least we know it’s definitely a stag.”
