If you’re living in the countryside, chances are that you love animals. Whether you have your own or not, lots of us love an animal-themed gift! However, you know that we love a present that is practical and quality, rather than novelty.
We’ve rounded up a selection of our top ten gifts for animal lovers, from clothing accessories to homeware. There’s gifts for any adult here, whether they’re an office worker, a parent, or an outdoorsy type.
A picnic rug and matching lunch bag
Despite the fact that autumn is upon us and our chances of an outdoor picnic are slim, a picnic rug is still a lovely gift for any outdoorsy person in your life. They might have to substitute nature for an indoor picnic at this time of year but a picnic rug and a matching lunch bag set is a very thoughtful gift. When you’re taking a dog with you, the picnic rug is machine washable too.
If this person works out of the house, the lunch bag might be even more useful to pack lunch inside every day. Meal prep during colder months really helps many people to stay healthy so an insulated lunch bag is not only pretty but also functional!
If they go on regular picnics with their family, a larger cool bag might be more appropriate. There is so much space inside this bag so it’s perfect for entire days out of the house to fit in any meals, snacks and drinks inside.
An insulated travel mug
Lots of us are trying to be more sustainable whilst still enjoying a treat. An insulated travel mug is perfect for those trying to save money in the long run too. This is a great gift for a work colleague who loves hot drinks but often ends up picking up a coffee on the way into work. They can then make one before leaving the house or use their new travel mug at the coffee shop. Many coffee shops give you a discount or double points for taking in your own mug too so it’s a win all round! Dog lovers will love the pattern too.
A stainless steel water bottle
If you know someone who’s big on healthy living, gifting them a brand new stainless steel water bottle will be appreciated. It doubles up as a flask too so you can have hot or cold liquid inside. It’s a slimline water bottle so should fit into the side pocket of most rucksacks, ideal for students, professionals and everyone in between. It also has a convenient wrist strap attached, perfect for dog walks in any weather.
A mug set
If you’re looking for a gift for a homebody, a set of mugs will never go amiss. Especially in autumn, lots of us like to spend some money on updating our home decor for cosy season and mugs are often a big part of that. Try to match up the pattern or colour with their kitchen colour scheme (unless they’re planning on decorating) or their pet. Our mugs are great quality and have been designed to last.
A wellington boot bag
For those in your life who love the outdoors, why not give them a helping hand and buy them a wellington boot bag? If they have a dog or regularly walk in the countryside, they might be really grateful for this gift. You can pop clean boots in on the way to a countryside destination and then put dirty boots inside following a muddy walk. The bag is easy to clean inside and it stops mud from getting inside your car’s interior. Once cleaned, you can store clean boots inside them at home so your pets don’t get a hold of them!
An animal-print rucksack
Animal lovers love to show their affection for their pets and what better way to do that than with an animal-printed rucksack? No, we’re not talking garish leopard print, we’re talking subtle, complimentary animal patterns that will go well with any country wardrobe. From the packable pocket rucksack to the 20 litre day rucksack, there’s an option for any occasion or usage. Whether you’re running errands or on a long dog walk, all of our rucksacks should be large enough to fit in everything you (and your pooch) would need.
A cosy cushion
Whilst this gift is meant for a human, we know that our pets often take over our cushion collection as their own. Cosy season calls for some new homeware and new cushions make a thoughtful and inexpensive gift for someone. Each cushion comes in a variety of animal prints, from ducks to pheasants. We sell two cushion sizes, medium and large, perfect for any country home.
A canva shopper bag
Pet owners know that whenever you take your pet out of the house, you always need to carry a range of supplies. That’s why a canvas shopper bag comes in so handy. It makes a great second bag so you could keep one folded up in your handbag, rucksack or boot of your car. The canvas material is super strong too so they can hold much more than you might think!
A new tie
Country gentlemen always need to show off being a dog dad and a new tie is perfect for them. Coming in claret and olive, our country tie is a bestseller as it adds a formal touch to any outfit with a personalised touch. Paired with a collared shirt and a tweed blazer, this trio would be perfect for any formal occasion, from weddings to important work meetings.
If there’s one thing dog owners need especially, it’s an umbrella for those autumn/winter walks. Whether it’s a compact handbag umbrella or a larger golf umbrella for outdoor events, our animal patterned options are a great gift for those who are often trickier to buy for.
Don’t forget that wrapping paper. Ours comes in both dog print and equestrian-themed print so add it to your basket. Animal lovers are some of the easiest people to buy for because you can buy just about any item with an animal print or pattern on and they will love it! These gift guides will be so useful in the lead up to Black Friday and Christmas so get in early and start prepping now because both events aren’t too far away!
