How it works
Send a birthday video greeting on the bagpipes to someone special. It's a memorable and fun personalised gift. Paperless, not piperless!
Martin will play Happy Birthday on the pipes in the Scottish Highlands, and read out your own personal message. The film recording will be a one-off performance, done just for you. See examples below.
Your short film will be emailed to you (or sent via Facebook if you prefer). Then you can email it to your friend or relative on their special day.
To book Birthday Bagpipes
A unique Birthday Bagpipes greeting costs £25, payable in advance.
Please go to PayPal to make your payment.
Then email email@example.com or DM Martin on Facebook.
Give Martin the short message you would like at the end of your tune, and please confirm the special date.
When ordering please try to give a few days notice. However we can usually film a greeting and get it to you very quickly if needed.
Other bagpipe greetings
We offer Anniversary and Congratulations bagpipe greetings for any kind of celebration. Book as above, paying £25 via PayPal and emailing Martin with your details, plus any tune you have in mind.
Martin can play all kinds of tunes on the pipes for customers. These have included Scotland the Brave, Skye Boat Song, Flower of Scotland; film themes like Braveheart, Titanic and Star Wars; pop songs like We are the Champions, Mama Mia and Ed Sheeran's Perfect.
Get creative and design your own Christmas ecard. Martin will pipe a festive tune just for you and read out your short message. Then you can send your greeting to as many friends and family as you like.
Choose one of these tunes: Deck the Halls, First Noel, Good King Wenceslas, I Saw Three Ships, Jingle Bells, Joy to the World, We Wish You a Merry Christmas.
There's time for two short captions. Choose from Season's Greetings, Happy Christmas, Happy Holidays or a similar greeting at the start. Then choose from: Best Wishes, Love From, or another short greeting.
Finally, provide a short message for Martin to read out after the tune.
A Christmas Bagpipe greeting, which can be sent as many times as you like, costs £45. Book as above, paying via PayPal and emailing Martin with the details of your greeting.
