Stir it up! Stir Up Sunday is on its way – it falls on Sunday 20 November this year. This is the day that tradition dictates families gather to make their Christmas puddings five weeks before Christmas, to give them time to mature ahead of the big day. Whether you make your Christmas pudding without nuts, free from gluten, or with an extra dash of brandy for Auntie Pam, our plastic pudding bowls are ideal for steaming a Christmas pud. We sell three different sizes: a 0.6 litre bowl for just 75p, a 1.2 litre bowl for £1 and a 2 litre bowl for £1.30. Sweet prices!

Jacob’s Join We do love a Jacob’s Join at PlasticBoxShop!
