The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide Terrier Lovers

What do you get the terrier lover in your life for Christmas?

Christmas is set to be a little bit different this year, and after a rough ride, none of us know what the season of joy will look like. But one thing I do know is that dog-themed gifts will undoubtedly spark a little happiness for the dog lover in your life. So without further ado, let’s spread some merriment and look at some fabulous products for dog lovers and pups in our Christmas gift guide for terrier lovers.

Let’s get comfy this Christmas

Let’s be honest; there is nothing better than being wrapped up in your comfies, whether that’s for yet another dog walk or snuggling with your pup on the sofa in front of some Christmas telly.

We have an array of fantastic Christmas clothing for dog lovers, along with some great new designs of our non-festive wear. 

Being eco-conscious is really important to us here at SLT, so you can snuggle up in comfort knowing that all of our clothing is sustainably sourced, made only with 100% Organic Cotton and Recycled Materials.

Zoomies or Zooming?

What do you think? Will we be Zooming this Christmas with our loved ones? I really hope we’ll be able to spend time in the flesh with our family and friends.

Zoom calls are now as much a part of our daily life as Zoomies have always been to our terriers. So, there is no time like the present to share our new Zoomies Collection!

After all those Zoomies, we all need somewhere snuggly and soft to relax. There is nowhere quite as luxurious and fabulous for your terrier to snuggle down than in a Slumbering Hound Snuggle Sack. 

Handmade in the UK from the most beautiful super soft fleece, they are ideal resting spots for our little burrowers.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

I have no doubt that those cold winter walkies will be happening in abundance this year, so help your dog lover out with the perfect kit to make those dog walks wonderful.

Never lose your dog lover in the mist again! Big Bobble Hats are beyond comfy and warm, and they look great too. We are delighted to stock these beauties, and they make those freezing cold walks so much brighter.

I wouldn’t be without my wipe clean, oilcloth dog walking bag from The Cosy Canine Company.

With a handy pocket for poo bags and another for my phone, plus the main body for toys, treats, and anything else your terrier may demand, everything is easily accessible.

They are handmade, durable, and easy to wipe down, utterly perfect for those British rainy dog walks. They come in a variety of great designs, and you can even personalise your bag for the ultimate gift any dog lover will cherish.

It will be wet. It will be muddy. Your terrier will roll. And need another bath.

I absolutely love Ruff and Tumble dog drying coats; they are super absorbent and brilliantly soft. And they really take the faff and mess out of those wet walks.

They even sell sofa throws to soak up all that muck and mud. Winter walks will never be the same.

Sticking with the theme of mud and filth, we are terrier lovers after all! Next up are Moo Moo and Bear’s fantastic handmade adventure collars and leads.

They are made of biothane, which means they are wipe clean. Yep, you read it right; all that mud and fox stuff just wipes right off. Hurrah!

Available in both natural and bright colours, there is sure to be one that makes your dog lovers’ heart skip a beat.


Nadia at Moo Moo and Bear has generously offered 10% off any lead when purchased with a collar for all you terrier lovers. Simply enter the code ‘SCRUFFY’ at the checkout. 

Stocking fillers

Whether your loved one’s tipple is mulled or a warming cup of tea, they are sure to love our Christmas Terrier Mugs. With three fun designs to choose from, they make the pawfect stocking filler for dog lovers.


Since we’ll be wearing face masks for the foreseeable, why not get a fun dog print mask for those trips to the shops to restock the biscuit tin. 

Leo Charley and Me are making these brilliant masks in a range of dog and pawprint designs, which would make a lovely stocking filler. As well as being soft and comfortable, they also have the little integrated nose wire, which helps to stop the dreaded steam up if you wear glasses!

Finally, they are washable and reusable, which is good for the planet and your purse, plus you’re supporting a wonderful small business too. I think that’s got to be a winning combination for an ideal little stocking filler.

For your Scruffy Little Terrier

Does your little terror have a stocking of their very own? If not, or if they’ve been very good this year, then why not treat them to a very special, personalised sack of goodies.

Sandy and Barney are far from left out at Christmas in this house. A stocking just wouldn’t cut it; it has to be a sack of pressies!

A festive bandana for those Christmas morning pictures you just know you’re going to take,  some delicious natural treats and chews to tuck into, and don’t forget to throw in a toy or two to destroy on Christmas morning.

Barney and Sandy adore a good tug toy. Have you seen these brilliant plastic-free, handmade natural dog toys from Smug Mutts?


They are made from natural hemp rope combined with splinterless beech wood and are totally pawfect for tug and fetch with your pup. That’s another tick on the sustainable, environmentally friendly, small business shopping list!

Does your pup get a Christmas bath?! 

Christmas is the perfect excuse to treat your pup to a trio of beautiful, natural soaps for their Christmas spruce up and beyond.

The Dog and I Natural Triple Soap Set is the crème de la crème in doggy bathing. These natural soaps are luxurious while being kind to you, your dog, and the planet. And they smell pretty delicious too!

With just the right amount of essential oils in each bar, they are pleasant to your nose without being overpowering to your dogs. If you’d like to see it in all it’s lathery action, take a look at Barney’s bathtime here!

Who’s Cooking?

No more fighting about who has the pleasure of making Christmas lunch. Get your dog lover an SLT apron to sport in the kitchen, and they’ll be keen as mustard to get cooking!

Hopefully, that’s filled you with inspiration for what to buy the dog lover in your life this Christmas. If you are the terrier lover and you fancy something off this list for Crimbo this year, then help your loved ones out and share this list with them! Or better yet, if you want to be really sure your Xmas wish comes true, treat yourself. 😉
