The loyalty and love you receive from your dog is definitely deserving of a few Christmas presents.  These are my top picks and what my lucky Chihuahua will be receiving this year

12 days of giftmas - gift guide for pets

We’ve made it to the final day of 12 Days of Giftmas which only means one thing, the Christmas has countdown officially begun.  Hello December!  That means it’s 100% acceptable to start belting out the Christmas tunes, wearing Christmas jumpers and embracing Christmas TV.

Now I’m a sucker for a Christmas ad so when Vision Direct told me about this year’s festive ad updating us on the adventures of pug, Gizmo I knew I had to share it.  Now we all know my little Chihuahua, Simba, is my best friend but even if you’re not a “crazy dog lady” like me, I would be shocked if this ad doesn’t have you laughing and aww’ing out loud!

Watch Vision Direct’s brand mascot, Mr Gizmo the pug, as well as a new character, Cuddles the cat battle it out over who can be more outlandish in their festive decorations.  As with all good Christmas tales, there is a happy ending about ultimately caring for others, a value close to the heart of the Vision Direct brand and hopefully all of us, especially around this time of year.

Go on, get into the festive spirit and give it a watch!

The loyalty and love you receive from your dog is definitely deserving of a few Christmas presents.  These are my top picks and what lucky Simba will be receiving this year.

This is your final chance to win everything featured in this gift guide.  All you have to do is enter via Rafflecopter at the end of this post and follow the instructions! Good luck!

Four Legged Fancies – Doggy Christmas Cracker

Yes, this is a Christmas cracker for a dog, how cute is that?!  Four Legged Fancies is a dog bakery who specialises in handmade dog biscuits and cakes for your pampered pooch.  Each cracker contains a small bag of biscuits (you can choose from chicken or cheese flavour), a Christmas collar charm and a hat.  Also, not to worry there’s no scary bang in this cracker.

Being a Dog: The World From Your Dog’s Point of View

I’ve always wanted to get inside Simba’s head and know what he’s thinking about.  Well, this book is the closest I think I’m going to get.  Leading dog behaviour consultant, Karen Wild, guides you through what is means to be a dog and decodes all aspects of dog behaviour, from deciphering body language to understanding different barks.

Pooch and Mutt – Puppy Development Dog Treats

I really rate Pooch and Mutt dog treats.  They are really well priced and the quality you’re getting is superb.  Puppies have very delicate digestion systems so these Puppy Development Treats are the ones to get if you have a new pup in the house this Christmas.

Lily’s Kitchen – M’Hearties

These delicious heart-shaped treats are made from 100% Icelandic pressed cod fillets and are packaged in a very cute, pocket-sized, keepsake tin.  They’re free from grains, sugars and additives, making them perfect for pets with allergies.  They can be given to dogs or cats.

Beco Family – Estella the Elephant

I think this is the cutest little elephant toy ever!  It comes in three sizes (small, medium, large) and if elephants aren’t your thing there are 5 other equally cute characters to choose from (alligator, monkey, teddy, parrot or giraffe).  These environmentally friendly toys are stuffed with fibres made from recycled plastic bottles.

If you fancy winning everything in this gift guide for your four legged friend (or yourself!) then enter using Rafflecopter below.  The only requirement is to leave a blog comment on any blogpost.  The giveaway will close Monday 12th December at 00:00am.
