Shopping for: Christmas Decorations With a Canine Twist


This Sunday sees the start of the official countdown to Christmas. Depending on how keen a festive bean you are, it might also mean that you are putting up your tree. Or perhaps, like us, you prefer to wait a few more weeks to get into the full swing of the festivities? Regardless there’s always room for an extra decoration or two, which is why we are shopping for Christmas decorations with a canine twist …

Handmade & Quirky
We’ve heard of the Puggle, the Labradoodle and the Cockerpoo but never the Doxie-Deer! Pictured above, the Doxie-Deer is what happens when a talented crafter creates a Christmas decoration fusing the Dachshund with a Reindeer. Handmade by Miss Shelly Designs, the Rudolf Sausage Dog Christmas Tree Decorations arrive packaged in cute box should you wish to hold this one back as a gift. Priced at £17 for two from Notonthehighstreet.com.

Delicate Glamour
Our dog-inspired glass bauble finds make fabulous showpieces. Choose from Selfridges’ French Bulldog sequined bauble, priced at £22.95 or Notonthehighstreet.com’s Party Dog Christmas Decoration (priced £12). With a sprinkling of glitter, sparkles and sequins these party pooches will add a glamorous touch to your festivities. 



Kitsch & Cute
Go camp this Christmas with Barbara Boston Terrier and Shirley Bassett Hound. Make up the full gang with Susan Scottish Terrier and Dolly Dachshund. Priced at just £4 per doggy diva, all are available at Houseoffraser.co.uk.


Fluffy & Fun 
Cath Kidston fashions her signature woofer Stanley into two fluffy decorations, which are a fun addition to a dog lover’s Christmas tree. Priced at £12 for a set of two, fetch yours now from Cathkidston.com.


Tree Topping
What better way to top your tree than with a glittery wing, star head-piece toting Flat Pet Pug Christmas Tree Topper? Indulge your pug-lovin at Puptart.co.uk for just £12.


And let us not forget the festive mantelpiece! Guard the gifts until Christmas Day with this iron Scottie Stocking Holder. This charming canine is priced at £36 and is a decoration to cherish year after year. It’s yours from Anthropologie.eu now.
