Buddies Gift Guide – Dog Parents

Struggling to find the pawfect Christmas gift for a pet parent? We asked the Buddies team to tell us what would top their wish list.

Emma – I love this pooch selfie device from ‘Amazon’ priced at £7.50. I take lots of photos of Max, but never really with him and me. Mainly because he gets excited and tries to lick me which results in me pulling an ugly scrunchy face. I think this is a great idea, and I’d be happy to find this under the tree.

Clare – I use ‘Etsy’ quite a lot, and whilst browsing, I came across this adorable Dog keyring. Priced from just £8.00, this would make a great stocking filler.

Becks – I am forever misplacing leads and collars for office dogs Elvis & Serge, and my car keys seem to go walkies more than the dogs. This rustic key and lead holder from ‘Etsy’ would be a great gift for any dog parent. I’ve certainly dropped a few hints to my other half.

Colette – Everyone pretends they don’t want socks for Christmas… it’s a lie. You’d be gutted if you didn’t get a single pair. These perfect polka dot dog socks from ‘Not on The High street’ come boxed and are priced at £15.

Natalia – I love all things Christmas, and I think this personalised tree decoration is super sweet. ‘The Crafty Giraffe’ have a range of tree decorations representing lots of breeds. A fab secret santa present.

Lorraine – What’s better than two gifts in one? Three gifts in one! These Friendship collars are gifts for the dog and their pawrent. And, they donate a percentage from each sale to feed shelter dogs. Priced at £25, I think these are a steal.


Agnes – Most women love receiving jewellery for Christmas, so I think this paw charm from ‘Pandora’ would make for a great gift. This sterling silver and cubic zirconia gift can be found in stores and on the ‘Pandora’ website for £55.
