7 Christmas Present Ideas For Animal Lovers

For some reason I have become really addicted to reading and writing these types of posts. It gives me a good excuse to spend hours surfing the web because "HEY! I'm trying to save the world from horrible Christmas gifts one post at a time, so could you please put the dinner in the oven for me?"

Works every time!

I also think it's wrong and super lazy to buy presents based on gender. Like seriously, I have a million and one different bottles of unopened bubble bath and cheap make up at home, don't you have anything a bit more original to give me? This is where this post and my other one with presents for book lovers, comes in. Consider your Christmas present for those animal freaks people in your life done and dusted all in one place- how nice am I?

1. Adorable Dachshund Planter 

I'm like an old man in the sense that I love a bit of gardening, but sometimes I don't have the time to do it. Instead I like to fill my house to the brim with flowers and plants- I read once that having plants in the house is good for you for something (don't quote me on it!). So why don't you snap up this cute little Dachshund planter for your animal mad relative or friend that comes lined and ready to fill with whatever plants they want?

It pretty Instagram worthy as well.

2. Kitten Candle Holders 

Not only are we a nation of dog lovers but 8 million of us in the UK (thanks Google!) are meowing mad about cats too. Also I am yet to come across a woman who doesn't own a least one candle, even if they have tucked it away to use for a 'special' occasion. This present combines both these things into one smoking hot Cat Candle Holder that would make a great present for any crazy cat lady that you might know.

3. Squirrel Snack Bowl 

If you are still struggling to find the perfect gift for your pot-bellied animal mad Dad, Uncle, Granddad, Bf, Hubby etc in your life, then look no further! This hand carved wooden squirrel is a perfect table decoration and doubles up as snack bowl for all theirs nuts and other midnight snacks. It is so adorable and I don't care if it's from the Presents For Men website, somebody best buy it for me pronto!

4. Animal Hanging Slate Quote 

Quotes are everywhere at the moment. Like seriously everywhere. I'm staring at one right now! However when it's written on a beautiful hand crafted piece of slate, for use indoors and outdoors, it just adds that extra touch. This quote reads:

'Without my pets, my wallet would be full, my house would be clean, but my heart would be empty'

And OMFG it so true that I almost cried with happiness when I read it because it makes all that dead mouse blood and dirty paw prints seem worth it and yeah, my heart would be so so empty without that little furry face poking out of boxes and that meow waking me at 2am in the morning!

5. Bespoke Pet Portraits 

I've also wanted to get a sketch done of my pets because duh it combines the two things I love best in the world: animals and art! So I searched the internet and this beautiful, personal illustration service was by far the best- plus 5% of the money is donated to Battersea Dogs and Cat Home. You can choose from a variety of different backgrounds and they hand draw all sorts of different animals, just send them a picture and the artists will get to work a bit like Santa's elf's in their workshops!

I just think it would be the perfect gift for any pet lover. And yeah I may or may not have just persuaded myself to order one of Toby. Sorry bank balance!

I don't know about you lot but I love nothing better than snuggling up on the sofa beside the flashing Christmas tree with a hot water bottle on my lap. People have got it into their heads (just like they have got it into their heads that being alone automatically makes you lonely!) that hot water bottles are for incontinent old grannies who can't regulate their own body temperature. But they really aren't! So what better present could you give this winter than an animal hot water bottle? 

This time 100% of the money goes to international wildlife charity The Born Free Foundation so while you are keeping warm, you're also saving animals lives at the some time! How fantastic is that? Also if you are interested, take a look around the rest of their shop for all your Christmas cards and stocking filler needs.  

What says Merry Christmas more than the gift of yet another mug to add to somebodies collection? I've said it before and I'll say it again: YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY MUGS! They are just the bee's knees in my opinion...do people even use that phrase anymore? Who cares I'm gunna get it treading people! 

Anyway. Mugs.

Funny animal related mugs actually. Great idea for a good old laugh on Christmas day. And if I had a dog, I'm pretty sure this would be true because well, everyone loves me best. 

Joking! Or am I?
