Presents for the Pet Lover!

I’m back again with some ideas for the animal lover in your life!

Who can resist the soulful eyes of a mans best friend? Not many of us, which is why an animal themed gift is a great idea for most.

Frames: We have the perfect duo, two photo frames featuring the words ‘My Dog’ & ‘My Cat’. Each is decorated with either a wooden fish or bone and is perfect for adding a photo of their cuddly companion. These fabulous frames makes the perfect stocking filler and are priced at just £5.99 each.

Door Mat: Well this really is a novel idea! if your friend has a pet they probably need one of these to help with the muddy paws! Gorgeously designed with cats and dogs, practical & stylish! Why not treat them to our ‘Wipe your paws’ sign too? It would certainly pop a smile on my face, (I’m hoping for the Scottie dog design!).

Storage Tins: If you’re secret Santa this year doesn’t have a furry friend don’t despair you can still get in on the act and treat them to a bird seed tin! What better way than starting the New Year with a new hobby? Team it with one of our bird nesting boxes and open the door to a whole new world!

Next week I will be back to help with the gifts for the man who has everything (we all have one of those in our life!) Happy Shopping x

Gorgeous Gifts for your Gardeners!


This week I’m going to help you with your green fingered friends!

Gardening is a fantastic past time and if embraced with enthusiasm (and the right tools) your chums (and hopefully you) will soon be able to reap the benefits.

Bulb & Seed Tins: These are available in various colours and various sizes and make perfect stocking filler from only £6.00 each. Why not fill them with unusual seeds or a range of bulbs to give the gift with a difference!

Thyme Watering Can: Ideal for the Alan Titchmarsh in your life! This traditionally designed metal watering can is absolutely stunning and beautifully finished in the new Thyme green colour and complete with a detachable brass rose. This will certainly make someone feel very special.

Water Mister: Pop a smile on somebody’s face this Christmas with our traditional water mister. Great present for the indoor gardener and lovingly decorated with the words, ‘Grow Damn It!’.

Traditional Buckets: Better than they sound (honest!). Absolutely brilliant for the organic vegetarian! My favourite is our gooseberry green bucket with ‘Grown in the UK’ printed on the front, great for Grandpa’s allotment!
