Lifestyle Chatter: Christmas Shopping For Pets With HomeSense

A few weekends ago we popped along to our nearest HomeSense to see what they had on offer for Christmas gifts and decorations. After rummaging around all the beautiful ornaments, we started looking at ideas for presents and were so thrilled to see all the wonderful items for our four-legged friends. I don’t even think I’ve seen so many fun things for animals in Pets At Home!

I loved these huge Christmas-themed cushions, perfect for our pets to curl up on in front of the fire. In fact, in my naivete I actually thought they were big floor cushions for people and could easily find a place for this top one in our home. I loved the simple colour scheme and Nordic style.

Then we came across the biggest collection of dog coats and jumpers we’d ever seen! Unfortunately Maddie’s not the type of dog to wear a coat, but look! All shapes and sizes, all styles and colours. Mini Barbour jackets to Fairisle jumpers, it was amazing.


This super display was close to the entrance as we walked in, and I blame it being early in the morning for not even registering the huge “Gifts For Pets” sign, and thinking that it was mainly a display of over-sized hot water bottle covers. Really, I can be so ditzy some times. The “bone bowls” are such a great idea and very stylish for interiors-obsessed pet-owners like me!

And for the people who love their pets but don’t love the odours, HomeSense had a huge range of candles, ideal for Christmas gifts or if you love candles as much as I do, no excuse is needed to stock up.

Our first HomeSense experience was so much fun and we stocked up on some great bargains, including pet shampoo and a Christmas outfit for Maddie (which she hates!) as well as a present for my littlest godson. With two nephews, two nieces and three godsons, it’s never too soon to start on the present buying and if you’re lacking inspiration you’ll find everything you need at HomeSense.

      Haha no there’s definitely a certain level of cleanliness which needs to be abandoned to accommodate a messy dog for sure! X
