Dog Christmas wish list – under £20

I don’t know a dog owner out there that doesn’t spoil their pooch at Christmas. After all, they are a key member of the family.

Willow loves cuddly toys and has a vast collection. Yet when a new one arrives, it fast becomes favourite for while.

For this blog I didn’t want to cover the expected toys, tennis balls and novelty jumpers. The Wholesome Hound, after all, celebrates and supports luxury, hand made, local products that are a little different.  We have some amazing finds that are perfect as a great gift for your pooch or  alternatively, family member or friends pooches too.

We also have gift ideas for those with a higher budget here. A great Secret Santa gift list for Dog owners here, plus these cute little home made treat boxes for those with a little more time here

Four Paws specialise in mainly rope leads, but has some beautiful collars in their Christmas range. Their Ethos is on high quality, un rushed craftmanship with all items made to order.

A spicy, aromatic blend combining Cinnamon, Rooibos and Elderberries to support the immune system with antioxidants and vitamin C – Priced at £7.99 for a pouch of 8

5. Small Taster Hamper of Real food – from Different Dog

We reviewed these last month – see here,  and have since become obsessed. I like to cook home made meals for Willow, however time can be a stumbling block. Different Dog therefore provides piece of mind that your pooch is getting amazing real food for when you are short on time. I love that they offer a small hamper, so you can try a selection of their products before signing up to the subscription service. This would also make a lovely gift for a friend or family members pooch too.   The Small Hamper is priced at £20 – Wholesome Hound readers also can get 20% off with the code WILLOW20

6. Beautiful Toys to compliment your home – from Sophie Allport

Now, if your dog is a chewer, this probably isn’t the toy for them. If, like Willow they are quite gentle with their toys, then it’s great to find a toy that’s beautifully designed and won’t look out of place in your home. We support all things British and therefore love the British designer Sophie Allport. Whilst she’s most well known for her china, she also has a stunning range of dog beds and toys using the most gorgeous prints. We’ve added this pheasant toy onto the list for this year – Priced at £12.50
