Massive £50 OFF the Hold-it

Our friends at ‘Gifts For Book Lovers’ are offering a £50 discount code on the ‘Hold-it’, exclusively to ‘Outsiders’.

The Hold-it Lifts the Burden for Senior Citizens & Disabled Booklovers

Most people take reading and writing for granted. We learn these skills as a child and like most skills learnt at that age, they come quite easily. Sadly for many with limited mobility or disability, basic everyday tasks like these are a challenge, depriving many of life’s most basic pleasures — writing letters or e-mails to friends and family, video chatting with loved ones or simply reading a favorite book.

This is why Gifts for Book Lovers is proud to announce the addition of the groundbreaking ‘Hold-it to it’s innovative product range. First conceived as an ergonomic floor standing book holder, The Hold-it has evolved through strenuous design stages to also function as a multipurpose iPad, Air, iPad Mini, Tablet or Kindle holder.

The Award Winning Hold-it enables users to read and perform a number of tasks at any angle — whether sitting, standing, or lying down. It has proven especially useful for users experiencing severe neck, back, arm, and hand pain. Many wheelchair users and those with limited mobility in the hands and arms have found it invaluable.
