Gift Guide – For the Crazy Cat People

So if you’re struggling to find something to get for a feline fancier, here are some purrfect gifts!

Does your mum come down to breakfast in the morning complaining about how the cat kept her up all night moving around on the bed? If you treat her to the luxury indoor cat house Maya Nook this Christmas, the cat will get a secure den of their own to sleep in, and your mum’s beauty sleep won’t be disturbed. The optional curtains are not just a beautiful decorative touch, they also provide the cat with a secluded space to fully relax in. Choose the stylish charcoal grey fabric, or use our custom made pattern and a Christmassy fabric of your choice to add a festive touch to the home.

The practical wardrobe for the Maya Nook can be used to store all things cat, like toys, food, treats and grooming products, so that clearing up for that Christmas party will be quicker than ever. 

Star buy! The Maya Nook Curtains and Bed ( 24″) plus a small Igloo scratching post makes a great bundle for a new Nook. Was £57.98, now £45.99. Buy it here!

Balcony Run

Urban cats rarely get to roam the streets at their leisure, due to all kinds of city dangers. Does your cat loving friend however still want their cat to breathe fresh air, hear bird song and feel the breeze in their fur? Then the Cat Balcony Enclosure might be the best gift they have ever received. This balcony run provides a fully secure and escape proof space for the cat to enjoy, fits all types of balconies, and is big enough for your friend to spend time together with their cat outside in the sunshine.

Gift Guide – For The Chicken Keeper

If you have a chicken keeping loved one who’s notoriously difficult to buy for, something for their chickens will probably be very well received. Take a look at our gift guide below and find something for every budget. 

Eglu Cube – For someone very close to you this is an amazing gift that will surely go down a treat on Christmas morning. Whether they’ve been wanting to start keeping chickens for as long as you can remember, or perhaps already have a wooden coop which they can often be heard complaining about; the Eglu Cube is the dream upgrade for any chicken keeper. Suitable for up to 6 medium-sized chickens, the Eglu Cube is super quick and easy to clean. The house features twin wall insulation to keep inside the coop warm in winter and cool in summer, and draft-free ventilation to keep fresh air moving through the coop without exposing your chickens to a cool breeze. The secure run is predator resistant and gives chickens a safe place to scratch about when they aren’t able to free-range, and can be accessorised with run covers, perches, hanging feeders and more! Choose from a purple or leaf green house, available from £549.


Do they already have a Cube? These accessories are a great addition to their coop. 

The Automatic Chicken Coop Door makes life just that little bit easier, especially in winter, and will go down a treat with tech lovers! The door can be programmed to open and close automatically by a certain time of day, so that chicken keepers can relax in the knowledge that their chickens are roosting in the safety of their coop even if the owners are stuck at work. With the light setting the door can be set to open at dawn and close at dusk, so the humans can have a well deserved lie in while the chickens start their busy day. The Autodoor can also be fitted to any wooden coop or run so makes a great gift for any proud chicken owner. 

As if that wasn’t flashy enough, you can now get the Autodoor with Omlet’s new Coop Light. The light comes on shortly before the door closes and encourages the chickens to return to the run or the coop. It is also useful for checking on the chickens at night, carrying out daily chicken keeping tasks after dark, or for those early morning egg runs! 

Save when you buy the Autodoor & Coop Light bundle, was £162.99, now £154.99.

The Eglu wheels are a practical present for Omlet chicken keepers who want to easily move their Eglu around the garden. If they already have wheels, run handles can make it easier to grip the run for moving, especially during the colder temperatures. 

Unfortunately the end of the year doesn’t mean the end of winter, and all chicken keepers will appreciate some covers to put on the run, in preparation for the rainy months ahead. Not only will covers keep the girls dry and out of the draft, they will also prevent the lawn from turning into a mud bath. Choose the heavy duty covers for ultimate protection from wet weather, the clear covers to allow for sunlight and shelter, or the Combi covers for the best of both worlds. 


Little gifts for any chicken keeper

The Ultimate Hentertainment Bundle, made up of a 1m Chicken Perch, Poppy Peck Toy, Caddi Treat Holder and Chicken Swing, contains absolutely everything a new chicken keeper would need to keep their chickens from getting bored. This eggcellent hentertainment package is now only £49.95 (RRP £59.95) in our Christmas Star Buys

The new Limited Edition Hivis Chicken Jacket, designed to look like a traditional Christmas Jumper, will ensure chickens are safe and seen when crossing the road this December, while keeping hens super cosy – perfect for the festive season.

Treats – Boredom busting treats are perfect stocking fillers for all chicken keepers. Our favourites include the Feldy Chicken Treat Balls, perfect for the Caddi Treat Holder, the Nature’s Grub Garlic, Herb and Vegetable Mix and the super cute Naturals Strawberry Hearts.

Egg skelter – For chicken keepers and keen bakers, this lovely kitchen eggcessory will go down a treat. As well as looking good, it is also incredibly practical and will help ensure eggs are used in date order! Shop the colour range here.

Gift Guide – For Dogs & their Owners

Are you struggling to find something to give a dog, or a dog owner, for Christmas? Fur-tunately we have some paw-fect gifts for all budgets! 

Fido Nook

Everyone knows that a dog is for life, not for Christmas, but if you or someone close to you are introducing a four-legged friend to the family in the new year you will be able to give the dog the warmest of welcomes with a Fido Nook, the world’s most luxurious dog bed. The Nook will be a safe spot for your dog to return to for a nap or just some peace and quiet, and you can add the removable crate if you’re planning to crate train your puppy. 

The neat freak who gets stressed about mess in the house will fully appreciate the Nook’s integrated wardrobe, which allows you to store all your dog’s things in one place. No more treats in kitchen drawers, tennis balls under sofa cushions or leads on the hallway floor! The pawfect present for both human and canine!

Are you buying for someone who’s already got a Nook for their dog? Fill the wardrobe with any of the Nook accessories: the bed, clothes rail, storage box, shelf, bowl or mirror, now all with 25% off

You could also get them some other bits and bobs to decorate the den for Christmas, such as fairy lights or a mini wreath.

Beds

Any dog owner knows what dogs will not settle for anything but extreme comfort. If their bed is old and smelly, or just not comfortable enough, there will be no stopping them from napping on the sofa or under the covers in your bed. So why not take the opportunity to upgrade your pup’s bed in time for Christmas? From Cloud7 to Buster & Beau, we stock luxurious beds from all your dog’s favourite brands.

Accessories 

Christmas is the perfect opportunity to treat your dog to some new toys, but also to get those things that you have put off getting for ages. Maybe your dog’s collar is looking a bit worse for wear after hundreds of walks and a few dips in the mud? We have plenty of collars, harnesses and leads in our Christmas shop that will make your doggy the most stylish canine in the neighbourhood. How about a new Christmas Jumper to complete the outfit? 

Stocking

Fill this super cute dog stocking with treats, toys and more for your own dog this Christmas, or as a thoughtful gift for a friend and their pup. You will find lots of great bits and bobs to put in the stocking in our Christmas Shop, such as this Christmas Cookie or the luxurious Candy Cane Rope Toy.

Gift Guide – For Kids

Whether you’re a mum or dad, a favourite uncle or a generous friend, we have the gifts that will make this Christmas extra special for the younger pet lovers out there! 

Eglu Go

Are you a parent who can’t really see the point of pets, but tiring of the constant nagging from the children? Would breakfast made with fresh eggs from the garden every morning possibly convince you? Suitable for approximately 3 chickens, the insulated and fox resistant Eglu Go is the ultimate coop for first time chicken keepers. The coop is so easy to clean that the kids will almost be able to do it themselves, and the daily and weekly tasks involved with keeping chickens are so fun and quickly done that split between a few family members it won’t get boring.  

If you feel that chickens might not be for you, but like the idea of an Eglu, have a look at the Eglu Go hutch. It has got the same amazing features as the coop, but instead of roosting bars and a nesting area, it comes with smooth slide-out bedding tray and a hay rack, and will be an amazing home for rabbits and guinea pigs alike.  

Qute

If you’re looking for the perfect first pet for your child, a hamster or gerbil is a great start. They create strong bonds with their owners, and kids of all ages will enjoy playing with them, but they don’t require training.

With the modern and stylish Qute hamster and gerbil cage, having a pet could not be easier. Cleaning the cage takes literally minutes, all you need to do is lift and twist the tube to keep the pets on the upper level while you empty the bedding tray and wipe it clean before you refill it with fresh bedding. 

As an added bonus the Qute will look great in your house, so unlike other cages for small animals you will actually be proud to have it on display! 

Get the Qute without storage and everything you need to be ready for your new hamster with this star buy bundle, now just £84.99, (RRP £94.17.)

Zippi Tunnel System

With the Zippi tunnel system for rabbits and guinea pigs, tunnels and playpens can be connected to build an amazing warren which kids can move around and customise when they play with their pet. Additional accessories such as the hayrack and lookout tower further customise the system. The playpens also make it easier for kids to sit in with their rabbits and guinea pigs, so they can play without fear of escape!

Start your system with our best sellers, the Zippi Tunnel Single with Hutch to Run Connection Kit, and Zippi Rabbit Run with Roof and Underfloor Mesh – Single Height. Now just £149.99 in this star buy bundle (was £189.97!)

Geo Bird Cage 

If your child is showing an interest in bird keeping, budgies and finches is where you should start. They are fun to train, not overly fragile, bond strongly with their owners, and are relatively easy to care for, especially if you have a cage that minimises spillages and is super easy to clean, like the Geo Bird Cage. 

A brilliant piece of engineering, the central food station not only makes refilling food and water extremely simple, it also cleverly collects husk that the birds discard while they’re eating, so that you don’t have to get the hoover out every day! The Geo is the perfect Christmas gift for all young bird lovers! 

If your child already has a pet, new toys that they can enjoy together will be a great gift!

The Grumpy Cat Christmas Light Wand will have the cat running around the living room, these squeaky crackers will be perfect for a Christmas Day tug-of-war session with the dog and you can enjoy seeing your smaller pets chew away at this Festive Pine Cone Snowman. You’ll find these, and plenty of other festive treats and toys in our Christmas Shop!
