Who is behind Hoogaly?

Hello, everyone! We wanted to say a big hello and tell you a little bit about ourselves…We’re Gill & Andy – the faces behind Hoogaly. We like to think of ourselves as the Hoogaly family. 

We’re from Cheshire and we love nothing more than snuggling on the sofa, under several blankets, sipping hot tea (of course!) and spending great times with our family & friends. When we’re not enjoying our cosy den, you’ll find us strolling through the Cheshire countryside, enjoying fresh air and taking trips to the seaside (with flasks of tea of course!)…

And the other times? 

Working on our little Hoogaly family… It’s all about that feeling of being comfy in our cosy homes and helping you to create that comfort zone feeling is our number one priority. So, that’s a little bit about us. Hope you enjoy looking around our online comfy store. Please do get in touch if you need anything.

What is Hoogaly?


It’s no secret that Gill is often cold – she’s known for wearing a cardi or a hoody even on the warmest summer days.

So she loves to make myself warm with comfy clothing, lighting, scented candles and the ever-important, blanket. There’s a certain feeling of contentment which goes hand in hand with this, a feeling of comfy cosiness. 

Infact, the feeling is very much like the Danish concept of contentment and cosiness – hygge.

Now let’s just take a minute to tackle this funny little word ‘hygge’ – is it higgy, huggy, high-gee…? The possibilities are endless, but the Danish actually pronounce it ‘hoo-ga’. That is where the name Hoogaly comes from.

And  Hoogaly is an online store full of cosy home accessories and other treats to create that contented little feeling.
