Christmas Gift Round-Up For The Dog-Lover In Your Life

If you've been reading this blog for a while (heck, if you've been reading this blog for a day or two) you've probably picked up that I'm obsessed with my dogs.

Here's the supremely adorable Penelope:

And the equally splendid Enrique:

Soooooooooooo cute.

So when it came to deciding what kind of Christmas gift round-up to feature on my blog, the choice was simple. Without further ado, here is my Christmas gift round-up for the stylish dog-lover in your life.

First up, these decals from Lana Kole - how sweet would these little guys look peering round the side of your sofa?

Check out these stylish Happy Hot Dog cushions and clock from Hunky Dory Home:

I love these white canvas, felt applique and embroidery fabric tubes from The Lab - the idea is that you slide these tubes over a metal can, and use them to store pens, pencils, brushes, or even flowers. Very clever:

This Woofy Cable Container Dog from Bodie and Fou is so awesome. I can't stand to see wires trailing all over the place - we have a lot of tech in our Nest, and while most of it is wireless (natch) we still have a lot of wires lying around - so this little guy is a super-chic solution:

These crocheted poppets from Le Souk are so cute. How adorable is the dachshund? If you have a kid, or know someone who has a kid, buy one of these immediately, if not sooner. In fact, I'd quite like one myself just to sit him on my desk:

Finally, no gift round-up for dog-lovers would be complete without including the glorious Radley, who have in the past year or so completely revamped their range to include a whole bunch of gorgeous, butter-soft leather bags and accessories in chocolate brown, teal, russet, tan, pink, olive... divine:

And there you have it! I hope you enjoyed this round-up, and found some inspiration.

I also have a gift round-up focusing on Etsy sellers from the Manchester area in the works, and I'll be sharing this soon. Watch this space!

Your two are so sweet - don't tell my Poppy that I said that though.......

Don't worry, I won't say a word :-)

I just checked out Miss Poppy on your blog, she looks like a gorgeous little madame!

I love your hounds! Both beautiful, but I think Enrique is my favourite. My mother-in-law bought me one of those Radley passport cases. I wasn't sure at first but I do use it.

Aha, an Enrique-fancier! Andre and I always say that Enrique is the connoisseur's choice. He is a very eccentric and super-intelligent gentleman, who runs rings round both of us!

I have a chocolate-brown Radley passport case, and I really like it - it looks cute, and it keeps my passport all clean and shiny. Mind you, I also have a Radley wallet, and Radley handbag, so I am somewhat of a fan :-)
