‘Tis the season to be jolly, and nothing makes us jollier than our dogs! We love to spoil our dogs at the best of times, but Christmas is a time for giving and sometimes it’s nice to treat your favourite humans too.
We’re a little biased (of course), but we think your dogs deserve the best, and ALL the gifts, but if you can’t possibly choose, we’ve put together a few top picks from our shop for dogs and humans.
Stocking Filler Ideas
Gifts don’t have to break the bank, in fact, we have lots of really nice gift options that would work for Secret Santa, just to say a little thank you, or just because. Here are our picks for the best stocking fillers!
Berry Blast Air Freshener
Support small business, and stinky mountain bike vans! Pop the Berry Blast Air Freshener in their stocking and start the new year smelling fresh. Now only £1.99!
Recycled Webbing Key Fob
Given what our business is about, it’s important to us to think about ways to get the most out of our products. At only £4.99, our recycled webbing key fobs serve two purposes, for us it means we get to use our leftover webbing from our collars so there’s little to no material waste, and for you it means you get a handy item to keep those keys safe! Or in this case, a handy item to help someone else keep their keys safe, anyone spring to mind?
Dog Car Seat Belt
Not the most exciting gift, but a really important one – and so easy to forget if you’re moving between different vehicles. The Highway Code states that when in a vehicle you must make sure any animal is suitably restrained. For most of us, a seat belt is adequate, but attached to a harness is best.
We’ve tested our seat belt thoroughly and thought carefully about the design. At £8.99, it’s a small price to put on safety, and a nice way of letting someone know you care about their dog as much as they do!
Recycled Tartan Dog Bone
Is it even Xmas if your not treating the dog to ALLLL of the toys! These cute creations are handmade from offcuts from the local kiltmakers tartan here in the Cairngrom National Park and only £6.99!
Signature Raglan T
Our signature T has proven popular, it’s now on sale at the bargain price of £5.99. Available in M ( 14-16) and L (18-20) so if you know someone who loves Bark and Ride, why not pop a little treat in their stocking!
If you’re looking for something else, don’t forget to take a look at our sale section for some extra ideas and great savings!
Green Lumi Safety Light
It won’t be long before spring, but until then we’ve got a few weeks of darkness through the winter to contend with. Why not keep dog and owner safe and happy by popping a Lumi safety light in their stocking this year. Yours for £14.99 this light can attach to collar or harness and even backpack. Keep your favourite humans and trail dogs visible with this handy little light. Also Available in Red
Has your trail dog been the best this year? Has someone got a new dog that will be a future riding companion? If you’re feeling kind of flush, why not splash out a bit and get someone a special something.
Bark and Ride Gift Card
If you’re really not sure, or you don’t want to chance getting the size of something wrong, why not opt for a gift card? We offer £25, £50 or £100 gift card options, or if you’re not sure on value, you can even choose that too!
The Bark + Ride Campfire Tumbler is the perfect companion after a day in the outdoors. A huggable shape, insulated to keep winter drinks such as coffee, tea, or a nice mulled cider warm whilst you enjoy the post-adventure chill. Also available in Turqouise and will be shipped in time for Xmas! £22.99
Poo-chi Pouch Top Tube Bag
A must-have for any trail dog owner, this is more than just a top tube bag! As well as the essential storage a top tube bag offers, this one also has a poo bag dispenser, and a compartment specially for storing used bags away from everything else. With two fitting options and a whole host of useful features, this poo-chi pouch top tube bag is a great gift for someone you really, really like.
For your Absolute Favourites
This can be human or dog of course, or even both! Know someone who needs a little cheering up, could do with something new, or you want to get them something just because? We have a lot of choice.
Thinking of getting your best MTB buddy a present for their trail dog, or maybe you want to get something for the mountain biker in your life?
Well, Christmas is all about the treats after all. Perfect for those trail dog training sessions, this double pack of Salmon and Potato and Duck and Turkey treats are great to pop in your top tube bag, or in your treat bag when you’re on the go.
Very popular with our ambassadors, and given the full paw of approval from Trailhound Harris we can’t think of anything much better than tasty snacks as a gift.
Keep tabs on your dogs at all times, or in this case gift someone the peace of mind of knowing where their dog is. After all, slay bells ring, are you listening (sorry, couldn’t help it). And yes, we know it’s sleigh, but we go “slay” the trails.
Anyway, at £6.99, the slay bells are a thoughtful gift for dog and friend and available in a huge selection of colours!!
Why not Treat yourself?
In the very wise words of Donna and Tom from Parks and Rec, “Treat yo Self.” If you’ve not seen Parks and Recreation you’ll just have to trust us that sometimes, treating yourself is the only thing to do, and why not now?
Signature Tote Bag
Stylish, practical and only £9.95, our tote bags come in pink or blue. A treat for yourself that has so many uses. Good for kit, lunch, shopping and more. Plus, these are handmade and printed in Aberdeen, Scotland. We love to be able to source products locally wherever possible! Also available in PINK
Handmade Bobble Hats
Also handmade in Scotland, our bobble hats are super cosy, perfect for these winter months. There’s nothing better than putting on a warm hat and getting out for a winter walk, or popping one on after a ride. We have lots of colours to choose from so we’ll leave that part up to you! Snap em up quick as we’ve got limited numbers in stock just for Xmas!
We know that our main range has always been our bread and butter and this year it has been extremely challenging to ensure we have ALL sizes in stock however we do have a great selection of Trail Collars all in stock and still a selection of Chillbreakers and Leads on sale too! Check out our New Mud Guards! In outrageously awesome PINK and available in best selling Turquoise too! Made and Printed in the UK!
And Finally…Merry Christmas from Bark + Ride!
We hope you like our suggestions this year and find something for that special person or dog in your life. We’ve even got you covered for wrapping paper this season! Check out our shop for more if you’re still on the lookout for gifts, we’ve just had some beautiful new collars and leads delivered in time for Christmas too!
From all of us at Bark and Ride, we’d like to wish you all a Merry Christmas. Without your fantastic support we wouldnt have made it through another extremely challenging year as a small business so we want to send a HUGE thanks to all of our customers old and new and to our awesome Ambassadors for keeping on spreading the love.
