A Pet Lover’s Personalised Gift Idea & Giveaway

Personalised Gift Idea cover

It’s getting to that time of year again when you start thinking about cold winter walks, brisk wind and of course Christmas. I’m a big fan of Christmas and I just love all the food, gifts and good spirits that float around the holidays.

Did you know it’s only 70 more sleeps to the big day!

personalised gift hugoKnowing that we decided to start looking for unique and personal gifts to give to our friends and family this year. A personalised gift is always a great gift idea to give or receive. It’s a gift that is specially made and perfectly suited for the lucky recipient. Besides that it’s a one of a kind gift that you can’t get on the High street!

Lucky for us we were introduced to Printster by Hugo who works in the warehouse and makes sure everything is perfect before shipping. We were so happy to of found him and we really got a chance to see what the company was all about!

About Printster

Printster has been making personalised gifts for the UK since 2006 and has become one of the most popular online retailer. They also have an extensive range of products perfect for gift giving including:

  • Mugs
  • T-shirts
  • Home and garden
  • personalised masks

Their products cater for all tastes and budgets with a diverse range of designs and styles but we decided that we had to check out what they had for furry friends and pet lover’s.  We had a sniff around their website and did a simple search for dog gifts and was directed to a page that was perfect in finding a gift that would make any dog lover smile.

We then decided to check out their personalised mug and coaster gift set and dog bowl.

Dog Lover’s Gift Set

Personalised Gift Idea set

It all starts with a coffee mug that can display one of your photos and a special message. I choose my photo from my Spring trip in Cornwall, while I was playing on the beach. It always makes my peep smile. I also added one of my favourite sayings too!

We choose to add a coaster and I know my peep loves chocolate so we added that too! However you can get fudge or jelly beans if you like.

After a few clicks we were ready to check out. Printster will dispatch your item in less that 48 hours. And if you’re wondering if the mug is dishwasher and microwave safe, I can tell you that it is!

A personalised gift idea for me

While we were in our gift giving mood, I decided that I needed a personalised bowl just for me. I choose their ceramic  bowl in pink, due to I am such a good girl!  I think it will be perfect for my afternoon tea. I added my name and instead of saying food or water I changed it to Maggie’s tea. I think the pink bone design was very cute and it’s a good size for me. It might be a little too small for those big strapping dogs that I see running around the commons but I think it works well for medium or small dogs like me .

The bowl is approximately 17 wide and 3.5 deep. Just so you know it also comes in blue for boy dogs. The bowl has a good weight, but you can’t put it in the dishwasher or microwave.

What we like about Printster personalised gifts is that they are a family run business right here in the UK. One of the things my peep and I love to do is support small businesses and Printster fits the bill perfectly. I also liked their selection of gifts for dog lovers too! They are just a little bit different and all at a good price.
