Mother’s Day

Hi everyone,

It’s been more than a while since I’ve done a blog post so I will now be doing one for every month.

If you don’t know Animal Gifts is run by my mum Karen and I. We make the perfect mother-daughter duo.

So Mother’s Day is coming up so I thought I’d give you all some clue into what would make a perfect gift for those who love anything floral.

From Quail Ceramics we have Daisy the white cat who I promise does have ears but loves wearing flowers in her hair.

To view all wall vases including Daisy click here.

As well as wall vases we stock a lovely range of breakfast cups and saucers, you can never go wrong with these.

To view all our fine bone china click here.

If you would like to know more about us and our lovely little shop please find us on Instagram and Facebook @ animalgifts4u

Also, we do accept purchases over the phone too, ring us on

02380 600 623

Happy Mother’s Day to all the lovely mothers and grandmothers may you be spoilt,

love, Milly xo


Christmas Cheer

Hello to customers old and new I’m sorry I haven’t been blogging much this year. Safe to say it’s been a bit hectic but alas the cheery season is in full swing. We are packing up parcels day and night, to make sure you receive your orders promptly.

Whether you’ve finished your Christmas shopping and are looking at products as a reward for all your hard work or even if you’re still buying with others in mind, we have something for everyone.

Why not take a sip from our lovely Roy Kirkham range…

Or if you want our Quail range is ever expanding.

If you’re still at a loose end why not have a drawing done by our very own Karen Jane Art, get in touch via the contact page on our website.

I wish everyone an exciting build-up to Christmas,

Don’t forget you can find us on Facebook and Instagram

lots of love

Has Spring Sprung?

Hello there, 

Sorry, it’s been so long since we settled down for a chat. How are you keeping? Are you enjoying the spring? I’m not sure that it’s quite sprung yet, but we are certainly enjoying it here at Animal Gifts Towers, and fear not our scarves from Quintessential are perfect for keeping that brisk spring breeze at bay. We have had a very busy Easter period, but never fear! There is still plenty of time to get your hands on something delightful to brighten up your garden or bring a little joy to your kitchen. Our Roy Kirkham china brings the joy of spring to your table. There is a cup or mug for every occasion, and with these designs, it will feel like you’re spoiling yourself every day. 

We have been celebrating a number of birthdays in the past few weeks, and they were made all the more special with our Amelia Florence Gift wrap, which is perfect for anyone and everyone celebrating a special day. Why not add to their day by bringing the joys of spring into your home with our delightful vases and hanging baskets? 

If you have particularly green fingers it may interest you to know that all of the packaging is recyclable and our packing peanuts? (not sure what they’re called) are compostable. In fact, because they are made from vegetable starch they will really help give the soil that extra boost it needs after the winter months. While tending your garden you might want to pick up some of our lovely garden ornaments, our fence post toppers, add a bit of character to your space and some wind chimes will bring it peace and tranquillity, which is something we all need at this busy time! 

With spring cleaning season well underway, you might be looking to add some personalised art to your home, or perhaps gift a loved one a portrait. If so, we have the answer, our resident artist Karen Jane is taking commissions, so do send your enquiries through the website and we will help you realise your heart’s desires. 

As ever, if there is anything we can help you with, don’t hesitate to ask. 

Wish you a joyful springtime,

New Year

Happy New year from all of us at Animal Gifts. I really hope you’ve all had a lovely festive period and start to 2023. So far we have been really merrily trotting along into the new year. As I write this I’m sitting by the fire with the Head of FR (Feline Resources) Margot. Having a lovely cup of tea from one of our Roy Kirkham Breakfast Cups and Saucers, I really love these cups, they’re that perfect mix of delicate and dainty, but also big enough to have a proper cup of tea in them.

January is a difficult time for so many of us, with the darker mornings and evenings, and the bitter cold snap that we are going through here at the moment. Though that is perfect for all the night owls out there. If you have a night owl with a birthday coming up, our owl vases are the perfect gift. But if the dark is getting you down, never fear, evoke much sunnier climes with this koala vase. You might not be in the Australian sun, but what’s the harm in bringing one of Australia’s cutest citizens into your home? If you are gifting any of your purchases, check out our unique and beautiful gift wrap from Amelia Florence. 

I find that the winter months are the perfect time to snuggle up with a book, but me being me I find myself reading several books at the same time. So if you are like me it might be worth picking up a few of our delightful bookmarks so that you never lose your place in the story ever again. Not only that, I find that these bookmarks are an excellent way to brighten commutes and might spark one of those rare but lovely phenomenons, the conversation with a stranger on a train. Nothing brings me more joy in these winter months than through brief moments of connection as you go about your daily life.


Maybe like me, you have set a new years resolution to write more, whether that be journaling, blogs or letter writing. I find sprucing up my writing space at the beginning of the year really helps with that, our stationary section has really helped there. Our range of paperweights has made my desk a much nicer place to be, maybe it can do the same for you.  

Looking forward to spring, if you’re looking for inspiration for your garden do cast your eye over our garden section, it might be the place you find the piece that you can build your garden around, or perfect the vision you already have for your garden. 

Hanging basket brackets are one of our best sellers we have many designs available.

Until next time, stay safe, and happy shopping,

The Perfect Gift

Hi everyone sorry for being so absent recently as we have been having technical issues however I am back to blog and ready as ever.

Oh how the time goes so quickly it is now autumn and the leaves have fallen from the trees creating a sea of varying browns on our lawn here at Animal Gifts HQ.

I am so excited for the Christmas rush as we are already getting in the Christmas spirit!

If you are looking for the perfect gift we have your back as my mum – Karen Jane has discovered she can draw and I am so proud of how her work has turned out, she is offering commissions on the website in the navigation bar. However if you would love a drawing done please get in touch, personally I think a drawing of a pet or favourite flower would make a loved one extremely happy.

Karen Jane Art –

Yes I am aware that these look like photos however I assure you they are drawings done by my amazingly talented mum.

Get a gift that will make someones jaw drop!

if you would like to enquire about a commission please email us at –

Hope everyone had a fabulous summer, now it’s time to layer up!

Marching Through May

‘March winds and April showers, bring forth the May flowers’

I feel that this timeless quote is very true to how I feel at the moment, with the flowers starting to bloom. Our garden ware range has become very popular, as people are investing in their homes and gardens ready for the summer.

Garden ware is available in many different designs and if you can’t find what you’re looking for please do give us a call.

I personally like unique gifts with thought behind them, and with Father’s Day approaching we have lots of gift options available.

We also must not forget our famous gift wrap, we sell it in sheets or if you require a little extra help we offer a gift wrapping service using our bespoke designs and of course wrapped to a high standard, finished with a satin ribbon.

I have been designing and selling my gift wrap for 7 years now, so this month we had to say a sad goodbye to our printer but don’t worry we have bought a new one ready for any orders!

We appreciate every single one of our customers and hope you all are ready to celebrate the father figure in your life.

Wishing everyone a lovely time throughout the rest of the month. If you have any queries or would like to reach out to us our contact details are on the main website, we love the gift of giving.
