Christmas is a time for spoiling loved ones, if you a like me then your favourite spaniel will be a very lucky boy come Christmas morning! Alfie loves presents, it is a crazy just how exciting the moment that he even senses he has a present – or anyone around him! It’s so adorable.
I thought I would give you a sneak peak of what little Alfie will be opening this Christmas, A little bit of shopping inspiration.
Alfie’s Christmas Stocking
This year Alfie has a new stocking, the most gorgeous personalised stocking from Fifi and Pascale. It’s so simple yet gorgeous! The stocking itself is made from natural cotton and can printed with your choice of name. The one thing I love is that it is huge… I could probable squeeze a whole Alfie Bear in it! Perfect for all the presents Alfie will get over the christmas period [He is a spoilt boy!]
If you purchase your stockings now you get 20% discount on 2 or more stockings.
The January Rose
First in the stocking is something special! You all know my love for The January Rose by now, Louise [the creative genius behind it all] really does create the most adorable pieces for human and hound.
Red Tartan Bow Tie
Style is important on christmas morning, I tend to ditch the Christmas jumpers and opt for something a little more sophisticated for the very dapper Alfie Bear. I adore the bow ties Louise creates, so of course she just had to be the one to make something suave for him. This year we went with the Red Tartan Bow Tie.
… Did you see the mini bow tie? That ones for Snuffles!
Crazy Spaniel Lady Key Ring
I just couldn’t resist a little something for me, this gorgeous “Crazy Spaniel Lady” keyring is the perfect gift for any proud dog mum. Louise creates a whole array of key rings from “Dog Mama” to ones tailored to each specific breed. What I love even more is that you can add a little heart to it with each of your dogs names.
Dog ID Tag
Now, a little hand stamped ID tag for Alfie… You could go for something festive like “Santa’s Little Helper or something witty. I decided to keep it simple with just Alfie, I love it!
Soopa Christmas Selection Box
I have been obsessed with Soopa since discovering them a few months back so including their Christmas selection box really was a no brainer for me. The selection box contains their superfood sticks and healthy bites both in a rather festive cranberry and sweet potato flavour.
Alfie has such a sweet tooth, always choosing fruit flavours over anything meaty so these have been a great addition to his diet… He insists on a chew before breakfast every morning.
The Classic Red, Dog Collar
I’m a sucker for a good quality leather collar, so when we recently found out about a new brand called Barker & Bone it seemed only right to feature it on our little festive haul. Alfie looks incredible in red, so it was the perfect festive treat.
Barker & Bone’s classic collars are hand-made in England using Italian Vegetable-Tan leather and expertly finished with complimentary saddle stitching. It is a lovely soft leather which has the natural grain detailing – Like any leather it will soften and age gracefully over time.
Guru Festive Field Trip Bone
A Guru field trip Bone is always a treat for Alfie, he like to throw it around the house for a couple of hour before he finally sits down to eat it… He eats their food on a daily basis, so a festive Guru Bone was a must.
Chuck It Tennis Balls
What do you give a ball obsessed spaniel? Four Chuckit balls of course! I only ever use Chuckit toys with Alfie, they last much longer than other regular toys!
Kyon Prosciutto, Tumeric & Oregano Dog Treats
I love home baked treats, I was super excited to discover the greek brand Kyon a few months back. A new brand who strongly believe in the importance of feeding your dogs a natural high-quality diet.
They have five gourmet flavour combinations to choose from, Alfie couldn’t resist tasting the Prosciuttio, Tumeric and Oregano flavour treats, which were a huge success! The rest he will have to save until Christmas.
Lily’s Kitchen, Three Bird Feast
Every dog needs a Christmas dinner! This year I am going to try Alfie with some Lily’s Kitchen, Three Bird Feast as a little treat. Alfie has quite a taste for Lily’s Kitchen, he can often be found trying to steal the cat food I put down for Mr Snuffles… I’ve never seen Alfie so excited.
I will mix a bit with his Christmas left overs – It is important to introduce any new foods slowly, especially if the have a sensitive stomach like Alfie.
Ruff Wrap Pet Safe Christmas Wrapping Paper
This year I am going to be wrapping Alfie’s presents with Ruff-Wrap, from Monster Pet Supplies. This is the very first pet safe wrapping paper, so your dog can enjoy opening their presents Christmas morning without and worry. It also doesn’t require any sellotape, you simply rip and stick!
And for those Snuffles fans… Who can resist this little cutie! I can guarantee he will be just as spoilt on christmas morning!
I hope you have enjoyed our sneaky peaky into our favourites this Christmas!
