15 Gorgeous Gifts for a Dog Owner in 2016

Do you or someone you know, spoil their dog at Christmas?   I’d be willing to bet that you do! As a dog owner,  we all find Christmas is a great excuse to make the most of those seasonal themed gifts that start to appear in pet food shops.  But what about dog owners? What are the best gifts for a dog owner in 2016?

Having attended several country and national shows, I’ve hunted high and low for those gifts that make us feel just as special as those we buy for our pooches.   Having also received dog owner themed gifts over the years too, it’s given me a great excuse to combine my love of dogs and Christmas into the below gift guide.

If you are a dog owner, remember that we all know that those hints aren’t’ always strong enough for others to realise we’d like that hint to appear as a present on Christmas Day!  So why not share the post with that ‘forgetful’ other half who is planning his Christmas Eve shopping dash, tag him on every social media site possible, and leave your browser open on this page (maybe even a post-it note highlighting the ones you love!).  They really do need all the help they can get!

Failing that.. pop back in January and you may have some luck in the sales (and leave some bigger hints for your next celebration – birthday perhaps?).

#8  Buster’s Christmas – John Lewis

It’s not Christmas without a John Lewis advert and I loved this year’s version including Buster the Boxer!   While there are lots of gift options online, the Christmas Story stood out for me at £9.99.  Be quick, though. The range of gifts that go with the annual Christmas advert does always sell out quick.
