In all likelihood this will be my last gift guide for 2017; I've loved sharing them with you. This last post will feature some items that I consider to be luxuries... I know we all have different ideas of what actually constitutes a "luxury", but I think these items are really special gifts that you can save for and buy without totally breaking the bank.
I recently bought this Barbour dog coat from one of my friends, and I absolutely love it. It's a bit big for Winnie around the middle, so she wears it with a jumper underneath, but that just makes it even more cute and cosy! In Winnie's opinion, you can never be too warm... she'd happily live on the sun, I'm sure of it. The wax coat is waterproof, and secures with velcro around the chest and stomach. It's such a smart coat and we've received so many compliments on it.
Next up we have collars from Broughton & Co., a business I've raved about on many occasions. My collection of these beautiful leather collars continues to grow (we've even got totally unique glittery Christmas ones coming soon too!) and I'm honestly a customer for life. Philippa cares so much about her customers and their pets, and it really shines through in her products and her social media presence. You can go with one of the many options on the website, or completely create your own; there are also a range of other items including scarves and lovelock ID tags. I just can't recommend Broughton & Co enough. (Order by Sunday 10th for Christmas delivery)
This is an exciting one for me! If any of you follow my personal instagram (@chloesthoughts) or watch my youtube videos, you'll know that I collect Emma Bridgewater pottery. Once upon a time they made pet bowls, but these had been discontinued by the time I started collecting. Well, a few months ago they came back! I snapped up one each for Archie and Winnie in the small size, in the Starry Skies and Pink Hearts patterns. I then went back and ordered a spare in the Wallflower pattern as I was so worried about breaking one! Also, there may be plans to add another daxie to the family next year...
Last but not least we have another old favourite; Teddy Maximus. I recently bought Archie this bow tie at Discover Dogs, and it's just too cute! It holds it's shape beautifully as it's from high quality material, and it has two loops on the back to stop it from drooping. I have various other bits from Teddy Maximus also, and they're all fabulous quality, Winnie's shetland wool harness is my favourite! Teddy Maximus are well worth a look if you want something a little special this Christmas... until the 12th, they have a pop up shop at 86 New King's Road too!
Have you enjoyed our gift guides? I really hope so! Thank you so much to all the companies and small businesses who collaborated with us on these posts; it means so much to me.
Chloé, Archie and Winnie
