Pets aren't just for Christmas (or lockdown)...

Did you buy a family pet over lockdown? It's believed that over 3 million households did. So if you have discovered the joy of having a little furry companion around the house, you might be thinking about what to get them for Christmas or even their first birthday.


The nation’s obsession with its furry friends doesn’t stop at elaborate Christmas or birthday gifts either, many pets now have their own social media accounts where you'll find more pictures of them than the humans in their lives and we know no expense is spared when it comes to buying little luxuries for your 'best friend'. A recent survey of British pet owners found that:

  • 16% of pets receive gifts from their friends and family at Christmas.
  • 1 in 5 UK pet owners shower their pets with birthday gifts - spending more than £26
  • 15% admit to singing happy birthday to their furry friends
  • 1 in 10 pet parents receive a Mother’s or Father’s day gift from their furry family members
  • London pet owners are the most lavish when buying pet gifts – spending more than £60 each year on each pet

It's very clear that animals are considered very much part of the family so we've rounded up some luxury treats that your little furry friends will love.
