July Blog

Oh July already, this year has passed swiftly, particularly with the numerous appointments that have filled my schedule. For those who may be unfamiliar, I manage Cerebral Palsy, ADHD, BPD, and Fibromyalgia, among other health conditions. I am deeply appreciative of my Mum’s assistance in fulfilling the numerous orders we have received, but also always guiding me, also I must thank every customer for their continued support.

I try to write a new blog post every month, and I’ve been keeping up with this goal. It’s really exciting to see all the new ideas we’re coming up with at Animal Gifts and watch them turn into reality.

An example is our new clearance page where we sell end-of-line products and bargains. Keep looking, as it is ever-changing.

As well as ensuring that all items are in stock and ready for sale, it’s essential to highlight the arrival of our new products. We are continuously searching for items that will delight and satisfy our valued customers.

Whether it’s our new flamingos and geese or our strong-selling items like Roy Kirkham cups and saucers, plus Quail Ceramics we do aim to please so have a browse and remember our packaging from tape to nuggets is all ready for the recycling bin.

Easter Gifts

Hi all, today I am writing an easter blog ready for Easter Sunday.

Growing up my mum would often buy my brother and myself a gift which wasn’t always chocolate as we both were not that bothered about it. Our mum saw this as a chance to get us something we really needed which would be useful, but most importantly, we could keep forever.

This brings me to gift ideas for a loved one!

From egg cups to tea cups we have it all, browse our website now and don’t miss out!


Don’t forget to recycle your packaging, it’s true everything is fit for the recycling bin!

I hope everyone has a beautiful easter bursting with joy,

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.

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

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!
