Bosca Teolaí

About Bosca Teolaí

Dan-Éire Designs brings together all the elements of the Danish philosophy of Hygge (pronounced Hoo-gah) with an Irish twist.

We have hand-picked the perfect items to keep you feeling Teolaí – the Irish word for Cosy (pronounced Cho-Lee), creating Bosca Teolaí – Cosy in a Box.

Hygge/Teolaí encompasses a feeling of cosy contentment and well-being through enjoying the simple things in life. Some of the key ingredients of these philosophies are;

  • togetherness,
  • relaxation,
  • indulgence,
  • presence and
  • comfort.

You’ll be able to purchase your Bosca Teolaí from Wednesday 22nd September until Friday 5th November 2021 from our online shop, with delivery dates starting on 8th December 2021*, making sure that everything will be delivered just in time for Christmas.

We’ve made it really easy to organise and pay for gifts for friends and family. You can even purchase a Bosca Teolaí for a member of your staff to show them how valuable they are to you and that their self-care matters!

We hope to help you experience all these elements with our Bosca Teolaí this Christmas.

Just for Dogs*

Just for Dogs

My little rescue dog, Molly (the star of the Bosca Teolaí logo!) is my ultimate Hygge. She is always by my side and for anyone who owns a dog, you’ll know all about it! The unconditional love, snuggles and the sheer joy they bring to our lives is incomparable to anything else. I got Molly from a wonderful rescue in Limerick – Molly Moos Westie Rescue Ireland – and I’m delighted to announce that 20% of all profits from the sale of the Just for Dogs Bosca Teolaí will be donated to Molly Moos just in time for Christmas!

So, you can see why I had to do a Bosca Teolaí for dogs too!

This Bosca contains everything a dog needs to feel cosy, pampered and loved – it’s all about Self-Care – even for dogs!

We’ve chosen some beautiful natural products to include in this hamper – Honey and Oat natural treats, all handmade in Ireland, Paw Salve and Dog Soap – again, all-natural and handmade. Also included is a jar of Mutt Butter – liquid cocaine to dogs (or maybe just Molly!) For the more active dog, we’ve included a Puzzle Lick ball – which can be used with treats or Mutt Butter. There’s also a cute bow tie for your pooch; get them ready for their Christmas portrait! And for the human – a fab Doggy Mug to enjoy a nice cup of tea in – all the essentials for you and your best friend. Once you’ve tried them out with treats and games, they’ll have a lovely blanket to enjoy and snuggle up on the couch with you – total Hygge/Teolaí vibes!

Each box has been carefully curated to help you create new happy-making rituals in your life. We’ve chosen a mix of beautiful homewares, artisan food and drink and products made in Ireland for you to enjoy.

“The true essence of hygge is the pursuit of everyday happiness and it’s basically like a hug, just without the physical touch,” – Meik Wiking

*Please note that some items may be substituted for alternatives of the same quality but may vary in size and colour. This is because we work with Irish artisans and brands that make limited numbers of their beautiful products.
