7. Don’t be a mug – gift one instead!

After a wet, wintery walk there’s nothing better than a hot drink to warm you from the inside out. Personalisation is available, as well as generic and humorous mugs.


8. Make a Charitable Donation or sponsorship

Animal shelters are in need of donations all year round but they are especially welcome at Christmas.  Lots of hungry mouths need feeding and whether you make a cash donation or some food and treats,  it will all go towards giving our four-legged friends a merrier little Christmas.

At Digs for Dogs, we’re realising the true spirit of Christmas with our sponsorship of this gorgeous Labrador-Retriever  puppy, Spirit. Our donation will go towards his Guide Dog training and help him make a huge difference to someone’s life.
