Gifts for dog lovers (and their dogs) – a Holkham gift guide

December 13, 2022 | Christmas | 5 minute read

Christmas is on its way, and we’ve been creating our gift guides full of ideas to inspire your shopping. Have you seen our gifts for gardeners or our presents for pampering yet? This time, we turn to our canine companions and their owners.

As an early Christmas treat, bring your pup to our Canine Carolling on Tuesday 20th December. With carols to be sung, walks to go on and treats to enjoy, your dog will be wagging his or her tail all day!

Gifts for dog lovers and their furry friends

Whether you’re buying for a pup ‘pawrent’ or want to wish your pooch a ‘yappy Christmas’, this gift guide for dogs and dog-lovers may help! The Courtyard Gift Shop at Holkham has shelves lined with ‘paw-fect’ pressies. Which is your favourite?

Matching bowl and mug by Sweet William, £17/£24

These beautiful ceramic products are designed by Emma Wood at Sweet William, with a little bit of help from her four-legged friend William the black Labrador. With multiple breeds of dog designs on offer, including Dachshunds and Jack Russells, you can pick up a mug for the person and a matching bowl for their pooch.

Dog treats and biscuits by Pooch’s, from £4.25

Norfolk-based Pooch’s was set up by Liz Morris and Sarah Searson who wanted to create home-baked biscuits for their dogs. Using high-quality ingredients, including Holkham game and venison, these treats are devoured by dogs across the county.

Especially for Christmas, you can even purchase a bag of Turkey and Cranberry biscuits – yum!

Deck your tree with dog decs, £3

As seen in Holkham Hall in 2022, these dog decs make any Christmas tree look ‘pawsome’! Choose from bones or miniature figurines of various breeds.

Foxy Margot deep cleansing ‘Sniff Me’ and ‘Stroke Me’ shampoos, £15

While we’re on the subject of cleaning your pup, these lovingly made shampoos from Foxy Margot are a prebiotic blend of proven ingredients, including shea butter, aloe vera and pure essential oils. They’re sure to make your dog love bath time!

W’zis tin and refill box, from £5.50

W’zis create meat-free treats that are specially created to excite your dog and avoid repulsing you! They’re a ‘pupular’ favourite amongst our furry friends, and the refillable tin will look fab in your bag, too.
