Now that we’ve taken care of the humans with gifts for him and her, choice tomes for the bookworms in your life and of course – in the true spirit of Christmas – gifts that give back with our charity gift guide edit, it’s time to shop for man’s best friend. Okay, and cats too.
Christmas is a time to treat every member of your family and we couldn’t forget our four-legged members either. Whether you’re looking for edible treats or stylish sweaters, we’ve found gorgeous bits for the special fur balls in your life.
Whereas once Fido might’ve had to make do with just a bone under the tree, these days many brands are recognising just how important our pets are to us – including getting them in on the trend for matching Christmas family pyjamas.

Christmas jumpers aren’t just for humans! Whether you’re looking for a chic fairisle knit or silly fancy dress, Christmas is a great time to kit out your pooch with a cosy new jumper or coat to keep them warm in the winter chill.
Silly Seasonal Styles
Looking for fun festive fancy dress? From bandanas to antlers and ride on Santa outfits, your dog might hate you but it’ll make for a great photo!
Get Carried Away
With more of us than ever heading back to the office with fido in tow, make sure your dog travels in style with a pet carrier. If you’re looking to invest, from Lish’s dog carriers are super sturdy.
Priced from £215, they’re expensive but made in Harris tweed, they open up to become a dog bed on the go and last for years.
When it comes to playtime, dog toys don’t have to be ugly – we love these chic options.
The Groom Room
When it comes to bath time, there’s no need for stressed pets this season. After all, a clean pooch gets more cuddles, right?
Whether it’s bath time or you’ve just returned from a particularly soggy walk, drying mittens mean your dog gets strokes AND dries off simultaneously; Alternatively, dog drying coats are a great way to dry off your pal quickly.
And finally, Feline Friends
Okay, we hold up our hands – Antonia is very much a dog person because usually cats are dicks (google it, seriously) but every so often, a cat comes along that we fall in love with so we can’t exclude them from our gift guide. Apparently dressing up cats is frowned upon (who knew!) which takes out a whole host of fun stuff but hey, we tried!
