When the Middle of Lidl does Christmas, it's not just about the usual festive jumpers, comedy socks and predictable stocking fillers. Nope, they've got way more bases covered, and today, it's what they're calling 'comfort accessories'. 

Yeah, we weren't sure either. However, a little more investigation ('click') and we discover it's all about bringing the comforts of a spa to your very own living room (or to someone else's if you're thinking 'oooh, that would be a perfect gift for Uncle Derek, he's always such a stress head'. 

So, whether you're after a supersize heated boot (yes, really), Shiatsu massage on tap or a heated blanket to snuggle up under while you're binge watching Christmas movies and pigging out on Quality Street, this round up is for you.
