What Can You Give to Dog and Cat Lovers for Mother’s Day?
Mother’s Day is Sunday 11th March 2018 so it is time to start thinking about what to buy for your mum or the other mums in your life. Is your mum a dog lover or a cat lover? Or is your loved one a dog or cat mum? Barks & Squeaks has some beautiful Mother’s Day gifts for dog and cat lovers that your mum or your pet’s mum will love! Read on for some inspiration…
Stationery for Dog and Cat Lovers
We have a great range of dog and cat breed greetings cards and notebooks to choose from.
Fetch & Follow’s greetings cards are £3 each and feature beautiful watercolour prints of a variety of dog and cat breeds. I think the Dachshund is my favourite!
Or if you are looking for something a bit more colourful, have a look at our very own Barks & Squeaks Original Designs greetings cards. We have 10 dog and cat breeds to choose from and at £2 each they won’t break the bank!
If your loved one is into writing, doodling, list-making or recipe collecting, how about gifting them one of our notebooks? Our Barks & Squeaks Original Designs notebooks match the greetings cards and feature a choice of 10 striking designs. They are £6.50 each and come beautifully packaged. They look fab when paired with a matching greetings card.
Fenella Smith’s notebooks (£11) also make beautiful gifts, available in Dachshund, Pug and Labrador designs. Add a matching pencil case (£8.50) in the same design and you will make a stationeryphile (is that a word?) a very happy person!
Books for Dog and Cat Lovers
I love a good book and I love dogs and cats, so what could be better than a dog or cat book?
Barks & Squeaks has a wide range of books; from the practical guide to Dog Friendly Pubs, Hotels and B&Bs (£9.99) to the comedic 97 Ways to Make a Dog Smile (£6.99) to the quirky and cool The Book of The Cat (£12.99) which features feline art and illustration by artists from around the world. Check out our full range of books here in our store.
Homeware for Dog and Cat Lovers
Everyone loves a bit of homeware, especially when it is liberally covered in pictures of dogs and cats!
Mutts and Hounds’ matching tea towels (£9) and oven gloves (£13) are a beautiful duck egg blue and feature illustrations of a variety of dog breeds. They will look fantastic in anyone’s kitchen. And if you want to extend the theme, have a look at the matching hanging lavender hearts (£13 and smell divine!) and cushions (£45).
Barks & Squeaks also has a range of specific dog breed homeware by the very talented Sweet William Designs. We have tea towels (£12), mugs (£15.95) and aprons (£25). Choose from Dachshund, Pug, Schnauzer, Border Terrier, Labrador, German Shepherd, Boxer Dog and Cocker Spaniel designs.
If you are more into art than practical homeware, then you must check out Amy Tyrrell’s original dog and cat watercolour prints. These A4 sized prints come mounted ready for you to frame. They feature a range of dog and cat breeds and we have a simple silhouette option or a silhouette print with a few carefully chosen words that characterise the breed.
Jewellery and Accessories for Dog and Cat Lovers
If jewellery and accessories is more her thing, check out our wonderful and unique Dogatella bracelets. These luxurious leather bracelets are shaped like mini-dog collars and even have a tag charm! They are £39 and available in 3 colours.
We also have gorgeous brass charm necklaces by Fetch & Follow (£30) which are engraved with the words “Be the person your dog thinks you are”. Buying one of these supports the amazing All Dogs Matter charity.
And if she needs somewhere to keep her jewellery, check out our new-in-stock Fenella Smith dog print jewellery rolls (£18)
I love these leather tassels – they look great as keyring or clipped to bags. They are actually to accessorise dog leads and collars but they are so good you won’t want to just save them for dog walking! They are available in two sizes (£17.99-£19.99) and a choice of 4 colours: heather, oatmeal, grey and camello leather.
On the keyring theme and also finding different uses for gorgeous items, these collar tags make fantastic keyrings! (£10.95) Each one of these gorgeous tags by Sweet William Designs features a different dog breed plus one that simply states ‘Oh Bugger. I’m Lost’!
Accessories for Dog Lovers Who Are On The Move
For the dog or cat mum who is frequently on the move, have a look at these gorgeous wash bags by Mutts & Hounds (£24). They are in the same duck egg blue dog print fabric as the homeware accessories featured earlier in this article.
And finally, for dog walkers who like to be prepared will love our Travel Wags dog walking bag (£70). This spacious bag contains a water bottle, collapsable drinking bowl and poop bags with a clever dispenser.
I hope that has given you some ideas. There is so much more on our site! Have a browse through our Mothers’ Day section – you will be sure to find the perfect gift!
Don’t forget that we have gift bag and hamper options to make an extra special gift. Create Your Own Hamper.
