Christmas Gift Ideas on what to buy your human!
Guest Blog from Charlie the Staffie/collie-cross
Hello, I'm Charlie the Staffie/collie-cross, and you've probably seen me on Sandie's Facebook page now and again. I live with my human mum Sue, and sometimes I come to stay with Sandie and Nigel for my holidays - I love snuggling up with Nigel, he's my buddy!!
I've already written my Christmas list for Santa Paws. I think I've been good this year, so I hope he'll bring me some tennis balls, a new tug toy and some pizzles to chew on!
It's really tough to know what to get my humans for Christmas though. Because I know they love me so much, this year I've decided to find my favourite dog themed presents! Here are my Top Ten Christmas Ideas for the humans in your life (all prices as at October 2019):
10)Festive Dog Mug
The first thing my humans do when they come in from our walks is to have a hot drink! So why not treat them to a lovely festive "Bark Humbug" mug, just £8 from Lisa Angel

9)Good Guide to Dog Friendly Pubs, Hotels and BBs Book
I love to go on adventures with my family! It's great to spend time together in new places like beaches, woods and other great places to sniff and explore. This book gives some great ideas for new places we can explore together, just £9.99

8)Personalised Dog Plaque
A House Is Not a Home Without A Dog - obviously! So I think a plaque telling all your visitors is a great idea - and you can even upload a photo of your very own four-legged friend - just £14.99

7)Upton Reversible Check Scarf
I love going out for walks EVERY DAY but sometimes my humans find it a bit cold. This gorgeous scarf from Joules will keep them nice and toasty! On special offer at the time of writing at £17.45 (usual price £24.95)
6)Relaxing Spa Day
My humans spend such a lot of time walking me, I think really they deserve a little pampering! I think a spa day would be great for them - from £25 through Virgin Experience Days

5)Personalised Reserved Dog Cushion
I have my own chair at home, so I think it's about time everyone knows it with this personalised cushion for £25!

4)Dog Walkers Revival Kit
Perfect for those aching feet after we've been on a nice long adventure in the countryside. I'm extra pleased as this is made from natural ingredients and is never ever tested on my four-legged friends. £45 from Not on the High Street

3)Sponsor a Guide Dog or Hearing Dog Puppy
I'm super lucky to have a great family who are all healthy. Some of my four-legged friends make such a difference to people who have problems with their sight, hearing or other issues. You can help them help others by sponsoring an Assistance Puppy as a gift, from just £60 a year!

2) Sandie Powner Photography Gift Vouchers
Sandie does a great job of taking my photo, even if I'm not the best model - I'd much rather have a cuddle! So her gift vouchers are a fantastic gift for your human - you can treat them to a photo shoot for their most favourite four-legged friend!
Sandie Powner Photography vouchers are normally £150, but for the whole of November they're on special at just £99 (quote code XMAS2019).

1) The Full Mushing Experience
I love to run, but I'm not as quick as these guys!! A great idea for your energetic humans who like an adventure, why not give them a Husky Mushing Experience? A hands-on, full mushing experience, starting off slowly and progressing to faster dogs & longer trails. Based near Tewkesbury, this approximate 2 hour experience is £99.
