Pawfect Christmas Gifts for the Dog Owner that has Everything
What do you buy for the dog owner that has everything?
Here at Rover Recommended we've done some of the hard work for
you and come up with pawfect Chrsitmas gift ideas for dog owners. From quirky stocking fillers to personalised presents,
we've got something for everyone.
Gifts for under £5:
These beautifully crafted charms will attach easily to a dog collar, lead, key ring or handbag. They are only £4.99
so make perfect stocking fillers.
These stylish canvas bags from www.4feet1tail.co.uk
are produced from original
artwork by renowned artist Mike Sibley. There are a range of different dog breeds to choose from and the smaller bags are
currently £4.46. The cute little Chihuahua Bag is shown below.
Something for Home:
Some people prefer a practical present or something for their home. How about a cute dog door mat (£17.49) or
tea towel (£9.95) from www.animalgiftideas.com
Alternatively this white dog print cushion from House & Home by Lisa Stickley is available from
. It is red with white polka dots on one side and has a cute
and quirky dog design on the other. It's currently on sale at £9.60 (was £12).
I liked the doggy design on the front of this diary from www.amazon.co.uk
It's currently £8.44 and would make a really nice gift for someone that still uses an old fashioned paper diary.
James Herriot's Dog Stories CD read by Christopher Timothy is a classic that is guaranteed to make you laugh and cry
in equal measure. It's available from www.amazon.co.uk
Something To Wear:
Not everyone wants to wear T-shirts with huge pictures of dogs emblazoned across the front. There are socks with
every breed of dog on them under the sun at www.animalgiftideas.com
but I rather liked these socks with Border Collies and sheep on them for £6.79
Something To Nibble:
All butter shortbread from www.boots.com
in a Christmassy dog biscuit tin will be
hard to resist. It's only £5.50
For those that enjoy watching sheepdog trials (remember One Man and His Dog?), you can give them a £50 gift voucher
for one-to-one tuition with experienced working sheepdogs at an idyllic farm in the Lake District.
How about a subscription to a doggy magazine? There's a subscription offer on Your Dog magazine at the moment of
£25 for 12 issues (www.yourdog.co.uk
Give them a day out to remember. Crufts 2012 takes place from 8-11 March 2012 at the NEC, Birmingham. Advance tickets
(£14 for adults) are available from www.crufts.org.uk
If you want to treat them to a designer gift, Radley purses with their famous Scottie dog logo are available
Why not immortalise their favourite photo of their doggy friend on a mousemat or mug? There are lots of companies
that offer this service. For example, www.4feet1tail.co.uk
doggy photo mousemats or mugs for £7.16
sell gift packs of stationery with their favourite
dog photo on the front. The packs start at £7.50 and include stickers and a notepad.
The ultimate personalised gift is a pet portrait. There are many talented artists able to capture both the looks and
personality of a dog. Liz Strachen at www.lizstrachan.co.uk
is one of our favourites.
