Breakfast packs – toasters and kettles with similar designs and feature sets to complement each other – are a great upsell idea for retailers and much more aesthtically pleasing for consumers.
Because the suppliers focus their breakfast packs on well-featured toasters and kettles at the higher end of the market, consumers are more likely to be technologically satiated by these packs, meaning there will fewer product returns and more customer returns.
Here are five great breakfast pack ideas for Mum this Mother's Day:

Sunbeam Retro Kettle (KE5200, RRP $99) and 4 Slice Toaster (TA5400, RRP $99). Retro is very in right now with the hipsters looking to fetishise anything resembling authenticity.
Morphy Richards Elipta White Jug Kettle (43946, RRP $129) and 2 Slice Toaster (44872, RRP $119). Distributed by Asko, Morphy Richards is greatly expanding its small appliance range in 2013 – the success of appliances like these is a strong foundation.
