2017 Gift Guides - Lily & Severus' Wishlist

These are the things that L&S would absolutely love to get for Christmas!

Dachshund Specific coats from Country & Twee
Always struggle to find good quality coats that actually fit the dachshunds, especially Sev as he's very long! But Country & Twee make a whole range of gorgeous breed specific coats, our favourites are
The Dachshund Underbelly coat £40

"One for The Girls" Tweed coat £48.50

Pink Signature Print Festive Hamper from Teddy Maximus £115
This hamper is at the top of Lily's wish list! Lily looks lovely in pale pink and I adore the signature print, but somehow don't seem to own any of the pink range!

Luxury Knitted Jumpers from Teddy Maximus £68
Pink for Lily and Navy for Sev! These caught my eye as I have a nearly identical navy cable knit jumper myself, and twinning is always winning!

I spotted this brand whilst scrolling through Instagram one day, i'm a sucker for anything rose gold and I think this would look lovely on Lily! 

What's on your pups' wishlist this year?
Thank you for reading,
Jaime, Lily & Sev

2017 Christmas Gift Guides - Luxury Gifts

This is the highlight of my gift guide series; there are so many gorgeous things on the market to spoil your pets with, this post could go on and on!

1. Light Blue Swarovski Collar from Paws with Opulence* £50.00
It's not Christmas without a bit of bling and these buttery soft swarovski collars are just perfect for adding a touch of sparkle! Beautifully made and so pretty, I just love the light blue leather!

2. Personalised Liberty Print Bandana from Teddy Maximus £27.49
TM do a variety of fabric options for their bandanas but my favourites have to be the Liberty print, they are gorgeous and the option of embroidery just makes them extra special.

3. Harris Tweed and Bridle Leather Collar from Bramble & Friends £42.00
B&F are always one of my go to places for dog accessories that are that extra bit special, these bridle leather collars with removable tweed sleeves are just that - beautifully soft and incredibly well made, they are the sort of collar that lasts a lifetime making them the perfect gift.

4. Red Cable Knit Jumper from Teddy Maximus £68.00
This gorgeous festive jumper is perfect for those chilly mornings, beautifully made in the UK - it's right on top of our wish list!

5. Liberty Print Carrier from Teddy Maximus £185.00
The ultimate in luxury dog gifts, this beautiful TM carrier is just stunning! Having used a cheaper one in the past it just doesn't come close to the workmanship of this one, the leather straps are soft but sturdy and the carrier itself houses a removable cushion make it super comfy. The blue liberty print fabric is my absolute favourite!

6. Christmas Hamper from Land of Dogs* £20.99
A Christmas hamper is the perfect no fuss option for a dog related Christmas gift. Our favourite this year is the one from Land of Dogs; it comes with a beautifully illustrated card, soft squeaky bone, 2 packets of natural treats, a travel size Christmas scented shampoo and a matching paw balm! Brilliant value for money and ready to gift!

7. Leather Saddle Bag from Teddy Maximus £89.00
I couldn't write a gift guide without including a luxury gift idea for humans! Teddy Maximus recently launched thesis gorgeous leather saddlebags in three colours, my favourite (& the one I treated myself to!) is this gorgeous tan "The Teddy". They're lovingly handmade by a leather smith in London and is the perfect size for everyday wear, whilst being big enough to carry all of your essentials.

8. Frosty Mornings Soft Rope Lead & Tassel from Devil Dood Designs £28.00
And last but definitely not least I have the Frosty Mornings soft rope ombre lead which is part of the DDD Christmas range this year. Emily's hand dyed rope leads are just gorgeous, they're super soft and comfortable to use and come in a variety of colours, our other favourite is the Sugar Plum! I also ordered the matching tassel which can be bought for £7.

So, this wraps up the last of the gift guides! Thank you for reading and I hope you all enjoyed and found some inspiration!

November Favourites

Happy December everyone! Thought i'd break the gift guide chain to bring you this months' favourites! There is so much lovely stuff around at the moment in the run up to Christmas, which is lovely but not so great for my bank balance!

Firstly this month I have an ID tag that I picked up in a Black Friday sale on etsy, from Wag-A-Tude tags I picked up a "More Issues Than Vogue" tag for Lily in the colour coral; these are brilliantly made and hilarious! This tag is Lily down to a T! Another thing that I really liked are the fact that each tag comes with a glow in the dark silicone silencer to stop the annoying jangling!

Next up is Sev's custom made jumper from Knitty Gritty Granny. I won a voucher for this jumper ages ago via a blog give-away and have been saving it, in October I decided that Sev just had to have a miniature replica of the Slytherin jumper and Sherin did not disappoint - it is perfect and I love it!

Next we have a lead from DevilDoodDesigns I was lucky enough to snag the first Sunset Ombre lead from Emily and omg, it is even more gorgeous in person, the colours are just beautiful; it's almost too nice to use!

I picked up some IVDD charity Christmas cards from Devoted To Dachshunds; I couldn't not buy these, it's a charity that raises money for IVDD research, which is a cause very close to my heart - they're adorable, too!

And finally we have Lily's new Christmas collar from our favourites at Boots & Bones. Ellie posted a photo of Dotty's (her CKCS) new custom made collar; a gorgeous leather and merlot velvet beauty and kindly agreed to make Lily one too! It also features Ellie's new stamped tags which I looove! Such a nice touch!
