A good 20 minute giggle but much smaller than I expected and would have liked.

Very different present but very amusing and sure my other half will like it
Great product but shocking customer service. Ordered newspaper and puzzle book at the beginning of the month. Straight after ordering I noticed a mistake with the wording on the certificate. No option to amend order, as it was out of hours so I used their contact form to ask for the issue to be sorted prior to dispatch. Product arrived 4 days later and the issue had not been fixed. A whole 12 days after I initially got in contact I received an email stating that since my order has been dispatched they could not rectify it. If I was asking for a whole replacement order then fair enough but I was only asking for the wording to be changed on the A5 certificate. I was going to order some other products however with the poor customer service I've received I'll look elsewhere.
