‘On the Fur-st day of Christmas, my human gave to me…’ – Our Favourite Gift Ideas for Dogs!
Have yourself a furry little Christmas and guarantee a wagging tail this December with our festive gift guide for four-legged friends.
To add some festive-themed cheer to any pooch’s precious toy collection, these squeaky sprouts and Christmas pudding & tree gifts will provide hours of entertainment! Or, if your dog prefers toys to chase rather than chew, these sprout balls make a fun and festive change from the usual tennis balls.
Of course, every furry friend wishes they could sit at the table and tuck into a delicious Christmas dinner with the rest of the family. But they won’t feel as sad if they have their own yummy food to enjoy. How about treating them to this mouth-watering treats gift box or a couple of biscuits from this festive wreath? They could even enjoy their very own portion of pigs in blankets – with Christmas tarts for dessert!
We absolutely love the Marks and Spencer matching pyjamas range. These are fabulous festive presents for both humans and pets. What a wonderful way for the family to spend a cosy night in December together, wearing matching pyjamas, and watching a Christmas movie in front of a roaring fire with a mug of hot chocolate and some delicious treats.
There are a couple of designs to choose from. The red checked range is a fabulous festive colour, and you can match with the whole family, as there are sets for men, women, children (ages from one to sixteen) – and better yet, a jumper for your four-legged friend too! (Although if your dog isn’t one for dressing up, there’s a gorgeous, warm and cosy matching blanket too – perfect for those chilly December nights).
Another matching pyjamas range from M&S features adorable animals wearing festive accessories. Again, you can match the whole family, with sets for men, women, babies (sleepsuit available in 0 to three years), children (ages from one to sixteen) and pooches (like the range above, you can choose from a dog jumper or a matching blanket!)
There are a few other fabulous festive gifts for furry friends from Marks and Spencer – or should we say, Barks and Spencer!
This ‘Treats for You and Your Dog Gift Bag’ would make a brilliant present for a dog owner and their beloved pooch. It comes in a tote bag and includes two gin and tonic cans, a gin and tonic dog toy, an M&S sandwich dog toy, eight crunchy tripe sticks, twenty meaty strips, eight treat time chewy deli sausages, and a family biscuit selection – all in a lovely tote bag!
We also love this pet grooming kit from Apothecary Little Paws range. It’s perfect for the pampered pooch in your life. The set includes a refreshing spray and dog shampoo infused with calming aromas of lavender and sweet orange, as well as a bamboo brush for quick and gentle detangling – all presented in a nice tin.
Although it’s a gift for humans instead of dogs, some furry friends in need will benefit from the purchase of ‘Doginoes’ (dog dominoes) and a 500-piece dogs jigsaw puzzle – both from Battersea Dogs & Cats home. A portion of the proceeds from each sale will go to support the charity.
For the fashionable furry friends, the ultimate in doggy chic comes from Barbour. We love this classic Barbour tartan harness and matching reflective collar and dog lead. Complete their chic look with a spritz of Barbour dog cologne too!
Adventurous and active dogs who are always out for walks will certainly appreciate this Wild & Woofy collapsible dog bowl – a brilliant solution to keep them full and hydrated on a long hike. Another fantastic gift from Wild & Woofy is this two-in-one water bottle and travel bowl – the two-piece water bottle has a lid that’s specially designed to act as a bowl so that your dog can easily enjoy a refreshing drink. Afterwards, save the back of the car from any mud and dirt with this stylish Joules pet travel mat.
Of course, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a stocking for your very own Santa Paws! We love this personalised jute pet bone stocking with a tartan bow, and this watercolour dog breed present sack. Or for something a little different, why not give your pet an early surprise with their very own wooden Christmas Eve box? You could fill it with some treats and toys for an early Christmas celebration!
Don’t forget, if you’re looking for gift ideas for a pooch’s human, we have an excellent selection of Christmas gifts that are perfect for any proud dog parent. For something special, take a look at our unique pawprint jewellery range. This collection is personalised with a miniaturised version of your very own pet’s paw to keep your beloved pet with you forever.
We’ve made the process as simple as possible. You can provide us with a copy of a paw print that you may already have, or we can supply you with an ‘Ink-Free’ Magic Paw Print Kit to take the print. Each print is carefully miniaturised by our specialist designers, who will create your design with love and care. Your finished piece of Paw Print Jewellery will arrive with you beautifully presented and ready to love forever.
Some of our favourites from the range include the engraved pawprint heart necklace, with either one print and one name or if your love comes in pairs, two prints and two names. This engraved pawprint heart charm bead is also very popular with our customers, together with the pawprint keyring.
We know how important our furry friends are to the family – at Christmas and every day of the year. These gifts are sure to guarantee a smooch from your pooch this December!
