Nuts about nuts!

“I was fortunate enough to have this included with another item I had purchased.
I gave this to my husband as a present as he is nuts about nuts. He absolutely loves the design: not only is it great to look at but it does the job brilliantly.
Roll on Christmas in order to buy even more nuts for this lovely item.”
