Deck The Halls With These 12 Dog Christmas Decorations
Our house isn’t a home without our much loved furry companions, especially during Christmas. Okay, so they may have found the stash of Christmas chocolate, sitting sheepishly with bits of broken foil marking the trail. But whatever mischief they get upto they’re such a big part of the Christmas magic! So it’s only fair, we deck the halls with an adorable range of dog Christmas decorations.
Here are 12 of our favourite personalised dog Christmas decorations to make your pooch feel special. The best part? They’re all from Etsy, so you’ll be supporting small independent businesses at a time when they need it the most.
We adore these illustrated wooden decorations from Rachel Brooks. Each wooden slate is coated in acrylic, with a watercolour portrait. What we love the most, is that each decoration is one-of-a-kind, illustrated based on your dog’s photos and direction.
They’re perfect for your Christmas tree and you can even decide to pop a Santa’s hat on top for extra festivities. Keep it plain and you can keep it out as a precious piece of art all year round.
Why should dogs be left out of the festive traditions? These dog crackers are plenty of fun for dogs and humans alike (though you might want to give the treats to the pooch). Each cracker comes with a little treat, a festive collar accessory and a joke! They can even be personalised with a name at no extra cost.
The crackers don’t have any nasty bangs meaning there will only be waggy tails when these tasty treats are pulled.
With it’s gorgeous Christmas colours, these decorations made us all woof with excitement. Each decoration is personalised with a dog breed of your choice, made from quality felt with a scalloped edge & ribbon for hanging. The finishing touch is the name on the top and sprinkle of snowflakes.
Katie makes these beautiful illustrated ceramic dog portraits from her home in Cornwall. Each one is uniquely painted based on a photo of your pooch (or pooches). The finishing touch is the red velvet ribbon, making a stunning bespoke keepsake for you to adorn your Christmas tree for years to come.
We are a little obsessed with these tail-wagging Christmas jumpers. You can personalise this cute Jumper with a portrait of your dog wearing a cute knitted jumper with his own name on it. Several breeds to choose from, or alternatively, you can have a custom colour edit or custom drawing of your dog. This is the perfect outfit to wear while popping up your Christmas tree.
Your dog loves nothing more than a tasty advent calendar to count down the hours till Santa Paws arrives. With this personalised pocket felt advent calendar, you can pop up to 24 of their favourite treats. You can also pop your dog’s name on the top.
