George, what a Saint!

If you are having that vengeful dragon (sorry, I mean mother-in-law) around for tea on St. George’s Day, you’ll no doubt need some heavy weaponry to keep the scaly monster (sorry, I mean delightful lady) at bay.  Whether you’re sipping a well-deserved drink, having a nice cup of tea or baking a delicious Victoria Sponge; celebrate this St. Georges Day by demonstrating your patriotic pride and checking out our range of wonderfully English-made products.

We have a spectacular range of Joseph Joseph worktop savers and kitchen accessories, perfect for making and baking delicious things to appease the beast. Or maybe you and the in-laws get along great and you just want to treat them, or is this wishful thinking?

Both Newgate and Thomas Kent are British brands who make some stand-out clocks, perfect for casually mentioning how late it’s getting and shouldn't she be going?
If all else fails, you can fill up some of our LSAInternational Glassware with enough booze to knock her unconscious? (drink responsibly kids).

See the latest Red Candy has to offer here. Isn't patriotism great.

Our new 10 hour Metric Clocks range, yipee!

The times they are a changin’ - 20% off all of our Metric Clocks.

Next time you have to change your clocks you will literally have to change them.  To Metric versions!

To coincide with British Summer Time the Royal Observatory will be adjusting GMT to properly integrate with the Universal Metric Time already used by several other counties.  Due to Britain’s world leading expertise in time measurement the Government has proposed a move to 10-hour clocks and 20-hour days, with the benefit of longer hours and higher efficiency.

In celebration of this historic event, and to makes thing easier for you Red Candy is offering a well-timed sale on all of our metric clocks.

Just plug this code in at our checkout to get a whopping 20% discount:  I4M4F00l

Mum's the word...

The most important day of the year is coming folks, well apart from my birthday that is.  The 30th of March is Mothering Sunday, our favourite lady gets her very own day of celebrating the fact she is our mum, hooray!  Stop panicking, relax, take a sip of tea, Red Candy has got you covered.

From retro bottle-tops to Elvis, these Joseph Joseph Kitchen Worktop Savers come in a multitude of styles, colours, shapes and sizes for practically every personality and interior d├ęcor. Not only are they visually pretty appealing,  they’re also useful for keeping work surfaces spic n' span and free from marks.

If you’re like me and never know what to get for Mother’s Day, or maybe you’re a mum who is sick of forever receiving terrible presents (despite the subtle hints), then these Worktop Savers are perfect.  Forget the boring old flowers or chocolates and get her something that will last (reminding her of her perfect child whenever she sees it).

So make sure you show Mum some much deserved love, long after the flowers are dead and Dad’s eaten the last of the chocolates! She’ll have a bright, colourful worktop for when she’s baking a cake or cooking you a lovely dinner the next time you pop over. 
Joseph Joseph Worktop Savers - from £11.00 shop here.

Hey, ho, Wesco!

Believe or not Spring is on the way, no, really, it is! The sun is shining (just), the birds are singing and it’s hardly hailed at all this week.  All of which can only mean one thing: Spring cleaning, Hooray!  Okay, maybe you’re not quite that enthusiastic about cleaning, but that doesn't mean you aren't interested in some delightful new kitchen-accessories.

If you've recently redecorated your interior space,or you’re just looking to brighten up your kitchen in the dull winter months, then one of these snazzy bins from Wesco, available in a veritable rainbow of colours, could be just the ticket!

Not only do they look sleek and modern, their big capacity means less trudging to the wheelie bins at 10:00pm at night.

Assuming you’re into interior design half as much as me (and like everything in your home to match), or you just want to inject some much needed energy into your kitchen, then these super-futuristic bins are just a little click of the mouse away. On your marks, get set, Wesco!

Freshen up!

We are always excited to get new products up on our site, and that's happening a lot lately (we're big fresh-start fans). So, with all this sprucing, new additions and dusting-off occurring, it's important to have a place to pop the old stuff (scrunched-up paper and old post-its etc).

So, as if by magic, part of our new additions are these fresh Woodrow Waste Bins from Umbra! Made from wood and finished in 3, dreamy hues, these nifty interior-accessories will bring the warmth of Spring and Summer into your living space, well before the weather warms up!.

We kind-of want a reason to collect all of them... So we're thinking of popping one by the sofa and using it for storing our latest design magazines (and Marvel comics) and maybe one by the front door for our umbrellas (note to self; must buy more umbrellas). To get your hands on one of these delightfully-designed Woodrow Waste Bins from Umbra, clickety-click here.

There's a spring in our step, with fresh design for your home...

Thank goodness January has happened and we all survived, days are gradually getting longer and brighter (but not warmer yet, you can't have it all at once). Rays of sunlight are peeking through the Red Candy HQ window, we're off to Spring Fair at the NEC tomorrow and we are feeling chipper, excitable and ready to inject some fresh colour into our home.

Leitmotiv is a brand that's really captured that fresh feeling, it's pieces are modern classics and would add some punchy design to your living space, without too much fuss.

So, if like me, you like investing in pieces with subtlety and distinctive design (that will last a lot long than a flat-pack bit of furniture), then Leitmotiv might be a a brand to look to. And, of course, all these pieces are available at Red Candy here. Skip off, take a peek and create you're interior haven!

First off, it's always good to get in the bake! Pop on your favourite tunes, that remind you of the one you're baking/creating/cooking for (how lucky they are), and all those loving vibes will make your creation all the sweeter. Also, make sure you're well equipped in the kitchen, here's some culinary-equipment inspiration for you:

Need we say more? Clue's in the name! One layer would make us swoon, but 3?! Wow, brownie (or cake) points for you! Passion Cake recipe here.
For lighter, sweet treats, what about these delectable gems? Nothing says "I love you" like heart-shaped edibles. Queen of Hearts Tarts recipe here.
We were so distracted by our sweet-tooth, we almost forgot you can actually cook something savoury to eat before the sugary stuff! After looking at many-a-pie, we decided to share this one, it's a little lighter than a rich red-meat pie, so you can indulge in other courses! Chicken Pot Pie recipe here.
I think it's time to toast to the lovebirds (especially the chef)! Raspberry Thyme Tom Collins recipe here

Let's not forget serving it all up. Set the mood and add those extra touches to the table-setting, if a job's worth doing, it's worth doing well! And you've already made all that effort, it would be a shame to pop it on a paper plate...
