Hello there!

Emma, here! Co-founder and co-parent behind TBCo. In Scotland, we call New Year's Eve Hogmanayand we make a pretty big deal out of it. Our celebratory torchlight procession, concerts and street party are world famous, which you can learn more about here. And as we're leaving a decade and entering another, it's bound to be one of the most memorable hogmanay's yet! We wanted to create a special box that helps you commemorate this milestone, so we put together a TBCo. exclusive limited edition Hogmanay Gift Box!

So, what's in the box?


1. Lambswool Scarf   2. Harris Tweed Hip Flask   3. Shortbread Flavour


The box was inspired by first-foot, a Scottish folklore tradition, known in Manx Gaelic as qualtagh, where the first person to enter the home of a household on New Year’s Day is seen as a bringer of good fortune for the coming year. The first-footer must not be in the house at the stroke of midnight, so often a member of the household will wait outside until the clock strikes 12:00. It is said to be desirable for the first-footer to be a tall, dark-haired male. The first-foot usually brings several gifts, including perhaps a silver coin for prosperity, bread or shortbread for nourishment, salt for flavour, coal for warmth, evergreen for long-life, and whisky for good cheer. After the initial first-footing, neighbours will often work their way through the village knocking on doors and stopping in for some friendly drams in celebration.
