So… what do you buy an animal lover who has everything? This was our conundrum when we went searching for the world’s top Christmas Gifts for Pet Lovers this festive season. Unbeknown to us, and with noses twitching and furry ears in full fetch mode and tied into a cape; Cuckoolands fleet of pampered pets went straight to hound the big man himself. With the help of a homing pigeon called Sid, Rudolph the Dog Whispering Reindeer and a swift exit plan, the merry mutts returned with a sack covered in grey hair and looking suspiciously like THE BIG RED ONE. Take a peek below, it’s a collection so original and so unique with such amazing Christmas treats (to reward that dog-or-cat-mad recipient), it could almost be the same one that Santa reported as missing:
10. Freddie The Pheasant Adult Slippers
We’re definitely getting chirpy with our first item, which is a must-have for surviving cold mornings; those kitchen tiles can sure be icy when all you’re trying to do is make breakfast! Freddie The Pheasant by Sew Heart Felt is our plump, comforting friend for stemming the chill from our toes, made from wool sourced with the very best, ethical standards in mind. These slippers are a novelty for farming and country types, hand-stitched with anti-slip material on the soles.

3. Cockerel Weathervane
Parents are guaranteed to be woken up at the crack of dawn on Christmas morning.

He’ll look incredibly noble in a pale beam of sunlight, outlined against the stylish canvas of their roof to signal when snow is coming. View our collection of quirky weathervanes here.
