Wren & Rye Christmas Indie Gift Guide

After seeing many exciting Christmas Gift guides out there, we thought we would join in and create our own. Supporting small and independent businesses!

We have split our gift list in to two categories... 

Dog Lover Gift Ideas:

First off we have the lovely Darwin & Gray. Which is a paper and textiles design brand based in Derbyshire run by Stacey and her beautiful Cocker Spaniel Darwin!

She has a huge selection of banners to choose from but these are our favourites for obvious reasons lol (one of which we already own - the other two are on our personal wish list!).

  1. Get Off My Dog Mini Banner - £8.00 | Darwin & Gray

  2. Merry Woofmas Mini Banner - £8.00 | Darwin & Gray

  3. Crazy Dog Lady Mini Banner - £8.00 | Darwin & Gray

Next up we have Sugar Boy. A less ordinary sweet company… I came across this fab little brand at Holly Tuckers Congregation of Inspiration back in September. Who doesn’t love sweets for Christmas… and these are sweets with meaning. 

“Puppy love is a pot to support all the hairies. Filled with juicy bones and bouncy, chewy tennis balls, it's a pot that not only tastes amazing, but it does a whole lot of good! Supporting Battersea Dogs home, this pot raising £1 each time it's purchased to support the amazing work they do looking after, homing and caring for dogs and cats.” - Sugar Boy.

  1. Puppy Love Sweet Jar - Available over DM | Sugar Boy

Lastly we are going to do a bit of self promotion… We think our “Treat Pouches” are a great item for all dog lovers out there! We use ours daily and have numerous of them for various reasons. They are surprisingly roomy and are great for storing pet bits and pieces (such as grooming kits), make-up, knitting, work in progress, handbag contents… the list goes on!

  2. Fluffy & Fabulous Treat Pouch - £25.00 | Wren & Rye

Presents for the Pooch:

First up we have a brand we have discovered very recently and are in absolute love with - Scouts Honour is an Australian brand based in London, who create merit badges for dogs!
