It’s the holiday season and everyone has started their Christmas shopping. Everyone in the human family has been accounted for and now it’s just the pet members left to buy for. Here, we have a little Christmas gift guide, highlighting twelve of our favourite gifts for your furry friend. Don’t forget, we have free UK P&P this Christmas as well – something that is sure to help out a little with the Christmas shopping!

  1. Christmas Gift Boxes for Cats and Dogs

Our Christmas Gift Boxes are probably one of the most exciting things we are selling this season. Packed full of exciting gifts and tasty treats, they are something your dog is certain to enjoy and make the ultimate all-in-one gift. There are toys for your dog to play with (and keep them distracted while you open your presents!) and a coat for that chilly pre-lunch walk, as well as some tasty natural dog treats. We have two boxes available; the Millfield Box at £29.95, and the Hyde Park box at £39.95.

Our choice of Beco product for you Christmas gift list are the Beco Christmas toy range for cats and dogs.

3. Wilmot Red Cable Knit Sweater for Dogs

Also available in grey, the Wilmot Red Cable Knit Sweater makes a very warm and festive outfit for your dog. Inspired by a 1930’s men’s cable knit jumper, these sweaters are hand knitted in England using only the finest wool. They have an added loophole so that a harness can be worn underneath, and so are great for dry days out with your pooch.  At only £45 this jumper makes a warm and chic gift for your dog this Christmas!

4. Hawkins Organic

Someone that we really love is Hawkins Organic. They create dog and horse grooming products that are completely organic and “free from nasty chemicals.” The products are made in England, and the packaging is mostly made from recycled plastic  – two things that we strongly support here at Philomena London. When it comes to dog shampoo, our favourite has to be the Lemon Drizzle, it left our three lovely and clean after a particularly filthy walk! Definitely give them a look as shampoo can make a great gift for the muddy puppy, and even the muddy horse, in our lives.

5. Drink Devour Dog Dishes (Set of Two)

Rae Dunn makes some of our favourite dishes, and this set is definitely in the top three. Handmade in California, Rae Dunn strives for imperfection – in keeping with the Japanese tradition of wabi-sabi (the beauty of things imperfect). These dishes are solid and thick, making them quite sturdy and therefore a bit more durable than your average ceramic dog dish. This particular pair highlight exactly what a lot of dogs do – drink and devour! At £59 they make a lasting gift for your furry friend. Why not have a look at the cat ones too, at £54?

Drink. Devour.

3 Luxury Blankets Your Dog Will Love

At Philomena London we pride ourselves on providing the best for your dog. In this installment of our blog we will be presenting 3 luxury blankets your dog will love. After all, they deserve the best don’t they?

1. Charley Chau Double Fleece Dog Blanket (£38)

Everydog deserves to be warm and snuggly, and with this fleece blanket they will be! Available in medium and large, there’s no reason for your dog not to love this. The great thing about this blanket is that it’s easy to wash (especially when you have muddy dogs like ours) and they’re great on the floor, in the car, or protecting the couch from doggy paws. Available also in charcoal and oyster.


2. Charley Chau Faux Fur Blankets (£60-70)

These blankets have to be some of our most popular. These faux fur blankets are actually made from the same material as throws for humans, and I can confirm they are just as soft! You might even find yourself stealing this from your furry friend from time to time! Machine washable, and so easier to clean than most furry blankets, these faux fur blankets are sure to offer your dog comfort and style. Available in charcoal, foxy, oatmeal, silver fox, and snow leopard.


3. Charley Chau Faux Fur Fleece Comforter (£38-55)

These beds are cute and comfortable, something that we’re sure all dogs will love. They have a multitude of uses as a blanket, bed liner, on the sofa, in the back of the car, as a travel mat…and that’s just to name a few. They’re not always apparent as dog beds, and so if you’re like us and use them when guests come over, we have found they’ve never noticed that they are dog beds before! Like all Charley Chau products, these are made with love and care, and they’re incredibly soft and comfortable. Your dog deserves the best, and these certainly are!

Our Day Beds are more suited to the dog that really needs to stretch his legs! The Day Bed is a luxurious and stylish way to indulge your dog. No more lumps and bumps in your dog’s mattress, even if it has been machine washed!  The secret to a luxurious and comfortable bed is a deep-filled mattress with insulating hollowfibre which is constructed with internal wall panels to stop the fibre filling from moving around.  Hence, a wonderfully comfy mattress year round. The cover is fully removeable for easy cleaning.

It’s durable, comfortable and machine washable and comes in a fantastic range of 3 colours and 4 sizes. Beco Beds are made from eco-friendly materials!

Like all Beco products they are designed in the United Kingdom.


The Double Fleece Dog Blanket  is a practical blanket to own when you have active dogs! Great with our Labradors as they wash beautifully and draw water away from your pet – a winner with us! The fleece used for these super soft and cosy blankets are anti-pil so they will wash beautifully time after time. This is a stylish and practical blanket that washes well but will still look great in your living room. Perfect for the car, sofa or thrown over an armchair to protect the furniture.
