SBS- special boat squad? No- Small Business Sunday!

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Dragons Den stalwart (and, may we say, our very favourite Dragon) Theo Paphitis has been running a weekly initiative on twitter called #sbs. The hashtag on Twitter is a way of following a conversation between lots of Tweeple about a certain subject- in this case the subject is Small Business Sunday.

Every Sunday small businesses from all over the UK post a little bit of info about their business including the #sbs hashtag, and on Sunday evening Theo Paphitis picks just 5 of the businesses he likes the look of, and retweets to all his followers (62,763 at last count!).

And guess what?! This Sunday Theo chose to retweet about Chiggs! Excited and thrilled doesn’t cover it- I’ve had lovely messages from other people congratulating me on the mention, and the number of people visiting the Chiggs website went through the roof! I’m so proud that a businessman like Mr Paphitis thought Chiggs worthy of a plug ūüôā

So here it is, in all it’s glory- my original Tweet, as retweeted by the Dragon himself:-

In case anyone is on Twitter and would like to connect, Chiggs can be found lurking here-

Get Well Soon, flower

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

We are delighted to introduce our new style Get Well Wheel,  developed in response to stockists getting in touch and asking for a funky addition to the range, for children or teenagers (ie those who are between the teddy bear on the Baby Medicine Wheel and the hot water bottle of the original Get Well Wheel!)

Supplied with it’s own envelope, and sealed in a cellophane wrapper this is a beautiful ‘get well soon’ card, and with it’s numbered dial to keep note of medicine times, it’s also truly useful!

The green and orange layered flower and leaf embellishment complements the cream coloured card, and as with all Chiggs Wheels, the new ‘flower’ Get Well Wheel is printed and handfinished in the UK.

So, if you’re looking for an innovative Get Well Soon greeting¬†card, The flower Get Well Wheel is available from the online shop on the Chiggs website for just ¬£3.99 (with free postage and packing)¬† and of course is available at wholesale for stockists old and new.

We’ll be adding to the range of embellishments in the Get Well Wheel range, so let us know what you’d like to see!

set the numbered dial to record the time you take medicine, and you'll know when the next dose of tablets are due!
