At the end of the year, we extended our festive giving in a You Give, We Give project where, as a company, we donated £3000 to the Against Malaria Foundation.
For us, Christmas is the time of year to think of others and this year we did just that. Our brand The Tartan Blanket Co. ran a project called You Give, We Give and we wanted to share the results.
We got a new member of the team last year, so it’s about time that he gets a proper welcome.
Alfie came into the world on 1st October 2014 and into our lives on the 23rd November. On his first day with us, he got to witness the final F1 race of 2014 and watched Lewis Hamilton take the world championship – who would’ve known he’s such a big F1 fan!
As a company, Macdonald Sporrans is celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary this year. To celebrate we’re looking for your help in creating an exclusive hipflask to be sold across our sites which include buyahipflask.com. For all sites and company history, browse the blog and get to know us a little better.
On Tuesday we had a lovely customer, Kade. He livened up a cold day by asking us for a special request. Along with his kilt order, he added a little note saying: ‘Please include drawing of a dinosaur fighting a giant baby alongside the kilt. Thank you greatly for this.’
We see lots of customers from the armed forces across all of our sites.
Whether it’s for highland accessories on buyakilt.com, a tankard from buyatankard.com to toast a long service award , a hipflask from buyahipflask.com to celebrate a passing out or a quaich from buyaquaich.com to commemorate a retirement.
In the run up to Christmas, Macdonald Sporrans are having a little help in the office. For those stuck on what Christmas presents to buy, for stocking filler ideas and for general Christmas chat, Macsporran Santa will be on hand to help.
Whilst doing a little research on St Andrew‘s day, I was surprised to learn that St Andrew is also the Patron Saint of Barbados. This small island in the Caribbean, that is over 4000 miles away, chooses November 30th as the National Day of Independence alongside St Andrew’s Day celebrations.
