The Christmas round-up: gifts for fur children and actual children

They’re small, they’re cute and they can be immeasurably frustrating, but we really can’t imagine our lives without them. Yes, we’re talking about both our children and our pets. Let’s face it – our fuzzy little companions are just as much a part of the family as their human counterparts, so they deserve all of the treats as well! Whether you are buying for your own precious bundles of joy or someone in the extended family, we have gifts for every kind of kid – even the really hairy and four-legged ones that have to sleep outside. more
