Spreading the festive cheer

For those who aren’t content with a Christmas tree and the usual garlands and wreathes to give their homes a winter makeover, B&M is selling a doormat sensor that plays festive tunes.

The sensor detects when someone stands on a doormat and starts playing Christmas songs – and it’s available for just £4.99 at value retailer B&M.

One shopper posted about the find on the Facebook group Extreme Couponing & Bargains UK and laughed: “This is amazing, lol.”

They shared a clip of the sensor to show off some of the tunes shoppers can expect to hear if they bag one for themselves.

In the video, posted on Monday (11.11.19), the sensor is heard playing a rendition of We Wish You A Merry Christmas followed by Jingle Bells.

The Facebook user continued: “For all you Christmas lovers… B&M, £4.99.”

They added, for clarity: “You only get the sensor mat, the door mats are £2.99.”

According to the back of the packaging, the mat is placed under a doormat and comes with an upright speaker to be positioned nearby.

The speaker can also be mounted on a wall, as it has a hole in the back for hanging on a nail or screw. It is operated with two AA batteries.
