Christmas gift guide: for pets
We've found 12 fab stocking fillers for the furry (and scaly and hairy) members of the family. Share the Christmas love with these animal crackers.
Designer and illustrator Eleanor Bowmer has created this pink leopard print-fabulous harness in collab with glam pet boutique Pawsome Paws. Not only is it sassy, it’s made from quick drying, breathable material and there’s a matching lead and poo bag holder.
There definitely isn’t room for two in here, which is why your cat will love it so – ‘it’s mine, all mine’! This plush cat igloo is velvety soft and comes in green, grey or orange, with a removable cushion for washing.
It’s Prada darling! Made in Italy from recycled nylon and it’s dog-damn fabulous. Given choker necklaces are all the rage, you can always have second dibs if Fido doesn’t take to it.
Dog with little legs but big ambitions? They can still be the pooch about town with these high fashion carriers from cult brand, Lish. The Dibden model comes in khaki and navy and is made of breathable linen with a detachable/replaceable leather strap, should someone gnaw through it…
Got a cool cat? Then of course it wants a skateboard… but this one’s even better cos it’s for scratching (instead of the sofa). I feel an Insta post coming on… #catonaskateboard
All Wrapped Up
Go from wet and filthy to dry, cosy and contained in seconds with this natty doggy bathrobe. It comes in six sizes and is available in pattern or plain fabric. The collar can be unfolded for extra warmth (and style), and the site also sells towel drying mitts for a mess-free rub-down – genius!
Know some first-time cat parents who don’t have the gear? Here’s everything they need to get Moggy settled and happy. There’s a fish print collar with a bell (because they love birds too, right?), mouse and fish toys and feed bowl, complete with reminder.
They’ll be the envy of the park in this snazzy quilted number from Great & Small, dare we say you could probably find a matching human version to go full cat/dogwalk. It’s cosy, has easy to use velcro fastenings and is machine washable. Available in eight sizes.
Dive in to a muddy puddle and come up smelling of roses. Yup. Your pooch will – after a bath in Digby’s mild shampoo. It’s made with lavender and mandarin essential oils, pH balanced to suit dogs’ skin, and the packaging is 100% recycled.

You’re not the only one who wants to look their best on Christmas Day. Make sure your dog is dapper as can be with this cute tweed bow tie.
Don’t forget the reptile in your life, who will love nothing better than their own little hideaway, bedecked in a jauntily printed fabric.
