It's nearly Christmas, and many of us are still looking for Christmas gift ideas for our friends, family and loved ones. With only three full weekends left before Christmas day, it's beginning to get frantic. So, how about some great ideas for original Christmas gifts for your animal lovers? 

Give the gift of a Zoo Membership

Animals are not just for Christmas, but a zoo membership lasts a year. With zoo's such as Chester Zoo offering annual memberships for individuals, couples, and families, you'll not only be spreading festive joy, this gift will keep giving, and will help support the welfare of the animals. What's not to love?

Zoo memberships for animal lovers? A match made in heaven.

Spoil a dog with a grooming experience

We love to be pampered, and dog owners love to pamper their pets. Splash out on a special dog grooming session at a local groomers such as at Pets at Home, and to double the fun, how about a pamper session for the owner too? What better way to relax away the holiday madness. Just don't get the two mixed up. Oops.

Even dogs deserve to be pampered.

Gift a pet portrait session for the perfect Christmas gift

Of course I had to mention pet portraits since that's what I do. Pet portraits are perfectly personal and sure to be loved by any animal parent so ask your local pet photographer for a voucher, or if you can do the photo shoot as a surprise and gift a gorgeous photo for Christmas. I highly recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.

A pet portrait is a unique and irreplaceable gift for a pet owner.

Personalised pet themed gifts

Mugs, t-shirts, cards, posters, the sky's the limit. Stick your friends favourite pet pic on a gift for something truly original. Online printers such as Moonpig.com, funkypidgeon.com, Etsy and Vistaprint offer lots of options to choose from. Many pet photographers also offer this as an option.
