National Shortbread Day

Promote your brand with a tasty tradition

Every year, January 6th marks the day we celebrate the buttery, melt in your mouth Scottish treat; Shortbread.

During Hogmanay in Scotland (New Year’s Eve), shortbread is given as a symbolic gift when crossing the threshold of a friend or neighbour. Needless to say, it’s a really meaningful gift option.

At Sycal, we have a wide (and tasty) range of promotional shortbread gift options designed to help promote your brand in an edible way, or to join in the Scottish tradition. What was once deemed as a royal luxury in the 12th century is now a gift to be shared and enjoyed by all.

Snack tubes

Our Large Snack Tubes are filled with 8 mini shortbread biscuits designed to put a smile on your customers’ faces. With the option to brand both the tube and the dome lid with your logo or marketing message, these tasty treats are a versatile promotional tool.

If you’re looking for something a little more environmentally conscious, we also offer an eco-friendly plastic-free version, the Eco Range small snack tube. Featuring 6 mini shortbreads, this tube can be branded on its semi-gloss wrap and recycled after use. Both of these tubes are fantastic choices when it comes to fully customisable shortbread merchandise.

Tin treats

If you’re looking to gift your customers, clients, or colleagues with a product with keepsake value, our Personalised Shortbread Biscuit Tins are packed with a range of delicious treats. The tin is able to be branded on the line in full colour. The perfect way to keep biscuits fresh but also providing the receiver with a reusable storage container while promoting your brand.

Personalised Shortbread Biscuit Tin

Our London Bus Tin is the full British experience gift. Decorated as a signature red London bus and filled with individually wrapped buttery shortbread biscuits. This tin’s fun aesthetics allow you to add your branding on both sides as though your branding was a bus advertisement. Customise the lid too with your artwork and have your very own branded biscuit bus.

For one or too share?

If you’re looking for the shortbread itself to be personalised with your branding then our Iced Logo Branded Shortbread will be more suitable. These delicious biscuits are coated in icing with edible printing of your logo. Individually wrapped, these biscuits are perfect for gifts and giveaways.

Sycal also offers personalised logo cookies in a tray that can be posted through letterboxes. The box itself can be branded with your artwork and contains 6 biscuits that are printed with your logo on edible icing. You can send these for an office or family gift to share. However, with a 30-day shelf life they’ll last long enough you wouldn’t have to share at all.
