Christmas 2018: Gift Guide for The Maximalist Mutt

Maximalism has been one of 2018’s biggest design trends, with homes decked out in bright colours, bold patterns and luxe materials. It doesn’t stop at interiors though, there are plenty of options for dogs that also like to be a bit extra. So for the hound who likes it loud, here’s our Christmas Gift Guide for the Maximalist Mutt. 

Maximalism for mutts Christmas dog gift guide

1. NEBULA DOG BANDANA BY HIRO + WOLF

When it comes to doggie dress-up time, a bandana is absolutely essential. Made using hand-screenprinted fabric, this Hiro + Wolf neckerchief is a must for pattern-lovers. The space in the middle means your D-ring fits through easily, avoiding any mid-walk tangles. Available here

2. NEON DOG COLLAR BY DOGATELLA

There’s bright colours and then there’s neon, for those that want to take it a step further. You can choose from fluorescent pink, orange, green or yellow – whatever stands out best against your dog’s fur. Pair with the matching neon lead if you really want things to pop. Available here

3. INK SPLATTER CERAMIC DOG BOWL BY FETCH + FOLLOW

While your dog probably doesn’t care if they’re drinking water from a muddy puddle or fine porcelain, replacing that bog-standard bowl with some beautiful ceramics will certainly make you feel better. These ink splattered pieces are one-of-a-kind, each carefully painted by hand. Available here

4. DIAMOND LEATHER DOG POOP BAG HOLDER BY HIRO + WOLF

Rather than stuffing your poo bags into your pocket, keep them safe in this diamond-shaped leather pouch. While we can’t guarantee it’ll make the job itself any more glamorous, it’s sure to add a little bit of refinement to your dog walks. Available here

5. LETTO DOG DAY BED BY MIACARA

Good for doggie divas, this raised bed is a step above (literally) the usual sleeping spot. Its sturdy aluminium frame means it’ll stand up to even the most determined gnawing, while its super soft mattress is completely washable. Available here

6. PINK INKA DOG COLLAR BY HIRO + WOLF

Handmade from blankets woven in Bolivia, these brightly striped collars will get your dog noticed in the park. A good alternative to the standard leather, they’re stitched with strong nylon thread for durability, and trimmed with vegetable tanned leather. Available here

7. TOTEM DOG BANDANA BY HIRO + WOLF

The 80s are back in full force for this blue and pink bandana by Hiro + Wolf. As well as being defiantly non-minimal, this neckerchief taps into the never-ending Memphis revival, giving your pooch some serious Ettore Sottsass-style swag.

8. WINTER DOG COAT SUNSHINE YELLOW BY FETCH + FOLLOW

No maximalism gift guide would be complete without a pop of colour. Not only is it bright enough to stand out on the gloomy winter days, this waxed coat is lined with Sherpa fleece to keep your dog warm and dry on those long, cold walks.
