About us

Hangry Hippo is a family business based beside the seaside in East Lothian.

Our idea of personalising items started when we were trying to find gifts with our children’s names (spelt correctly!) We realised that we weren’t the only ones and the idea began!

We love what we do and enjoy making the items we get asked to make. By far though our favourite part is seeing people’s reactions to their sometimes very vague ideas becoming a real thing.

Recently a lot of our requests have extended into logo design and marketing items which we are happy to help with. In the unlikely event we can’t assist we will always pass you on to another local company. We have a great network local businesses and love to support them.

We can add names to our clothing for no extra charge and feel that it’s these extra touches that have grown our little idea into our passion and business.

We take a huge amount of pride in every item we make or design we create; our customer reactions and feedback are the best!

Our name came about as we wanted something catchy. A word used a lot in our house is hangry!

 

hangry
/ˈhaŋɡri/
bad-tempered or irritable as a result of hunger.
"I get very hangry if I miss a meal"

We enjoy in no particular order - family time, seeing our children happy, the seaside where we are lucky enough to live and having an occasional gin!

Enjoy your visit to Hangry Hippo!!
