When it comes to Christmas gift buying, it can be hard to know what to get those special people in your life. But what about your furry friends? What will you get your cat or dog for Christmas this year?
In the UK, we spend a collective total of £750m on our pets at Christmas. Some owners even spend more on their furry friends than they do on their family and friends. From tasty treats and toys to clothes, we love to treat our pets.
Pet gift shop
But if you find yourself stuck for ideas then The Merchant’s Tail in Hackney, a pop-up pet gift shop in London, created by Cheshire & Wain and Fetch & Follow, offers great gift ideas for your canine pal or your feline friend.
How about treating your dog to a stylish jumper or rain jacket or perhaps a comfy new bed or smart new bowl, but only if they’ve been on the best behaviour of course. Only the best will do for your feline family members, so the luxury ‘Muted Heritage’ collection’s Caviar themed accessories and beautifully soft leather cat collars should be purrfect.
Festive pet workshops
There will also be in-store festive workshops that can help you ensure your pet has a safe and happy winter and Christmas. Meanwhile, there is also a workshop where you can customise your very own Lucky (Waving) Cat and tips on how owners can look after their skincare during winter walks.
You don’t even need to worry about your annual Christmas card. Just visit the photo studio and pet photographer Rachel Oats will take a photo of your cat or dog.
Pets are of course welcome to come too and there will even be some tasty snacks for them to enjoy.
What’s more, owners can post a special ‘tail’ to Santa Paws and be in with the chance of winning £100 to spend on their furry friend.
