We’ve made a couple of small changes over the holidays which we hope will give our customers a better shopping experience.
Many thanks to all our customers who entered our Christmas Hamper Competition. The lucky recipient of the “Braw Wooer” hamper was Rebecca Innes, who was lucky enough to receive this hamper in time for Christmas.
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.
This is your chance to win an amazing hamper, worth over £80, just in time for Christmas.
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.
I believe that as a company we take a different outlook on things compared to traditional business philosophies.
It’s a difficult thing to describe because it’s more about culture or ethos than systems or practices. However, every now and again, I see a nice example of this, and wanted to share one with you today.

Mark Cavendish’s win at the UCI Road World Cycling Championships on Sunday was a great moment for British sport, and a very interesting insight into how teams can work.
I’m not sure how much you know about road cycling (I certainly didn’t know that much until this morning), but Mark was backed up by a team of another 7 British riders. He was able to win the race because his team supported him throughout the 266km and then made space for him to go on and sprint to the finish line.
As part of my job at Macdonald Sporrans I try and give the best service possible to all of our customers. It’s very rewarding for me to know that the products we’re sending out and the service people receive from us are making you happy. It’s also very nice when people take the time out to say thank you to us. Whether this is at the end of an email or phone call or especially when a review is left on our site.
