Scottish House-Warming and New Home Gift | Lang may your lum reek


‘Lang may your lum reek’….what does this mean?

‘Lum’ is the Scottish word for chimney. If your lum reeks, no, it’s not smelling bad, it’s got smoke coming out of it!

Historically, only the wealthy could afford to have their fires burning continously, so here in Scotland we say this to wish people health, wealth and happiness in their new homes.

A unique and very Scottish new home gift.

So, if you want to wish someone all the best in their new home say it the Scottish way! A great gift, with a great saying that can be hung up in the house to be enjoyed for years to come. And who knows, may even bring a wee portion of extra luck with it.

The heart is painted a soft beige. The saying is handwritten and is complimented by a shaker-style hand drawn house and tree, complete with reeking lum!

You can choose to have your own message written onto the back of the heart at no extra cost to make a completely personal and unique new home gift. Just add your message into the personalisation box when you order.

I can also post this heart directly to the new homers to save you time. Please add their address into the shipping section during checkout.

A great and very unique new home gift, direct from Scotland with love.

This heart measures 150mm x 87mm x 3mm and is laser cut in the UK from MDF.  It is painted with ec0-friendly water-based paints by Farrow and Ball.  All writing and drawing is hand done by me.  Your heart is given a light coat of varnish to seal the colours and prevent fading and yellowing over time.

All our packaging is recycled and plastic free.
