Best sausage dog print

TheWorldGallery Picasso Exhibition Poster, Pink DachshundEtsy, TheWorldGallery
Price: From £9.99

www.etsy.com

"I was kindly gifted a pink version of Picasso's 'Le Chein' by a family member, which depicts a simple but recognisable outline of a sausage dog. I love this version in particular because it includes the French text about the museum and Picasso, which gives some context to guests who see the print and aren't familiar with it.

It arrives rolled up in a poster tube, but I have put mine into a frame to protect it and give it a nice border. I am impressed by the quality of the paper, as well as the ink, as it looks very professional and there are no smudges or grainy bits."

Pros

  • Available in a broad selection of sizes, from 9x12 inches to A1
  • Arrives in a poster tube to prevent it from getting damaged in transit

It is sterling silver plated brass and the chain is adjustable due to the lobster clasp and extender links. Reviewers liked the pendants dainty size as it's not too "over the top". We like the simple design as it can be worn with anything and will bring any personal touch to an outfit.

  • Machine washable which increases its usability
  • Handles aren't too thin, so they're less likely to dig into your hand or shoulder

Best for a practical gift

A gift like this Bertie Sausage Dog Spoon Rest is sweet but also practical (as it will hold hot spoons and prevent them from staining your kitchen counter as you cook or make hot drinks).

A lot of customers have commented on it's size, with one saying "This is a lovely addition to my kitchen. It holds a teaspoon and tea bags adequately", whilst others are pleased that the yellow colour is the same as the other Dunelm kitchenware they own. Some say that it could also be used as a trinket dish for rings and jewellery.

  • Can be wiped clean with warm water and washing up liquid
  • Colour matches other Dunelm kitchen products

  • Although it is reasonably sized, it may struggle to hold a large cooking spoon

the oodie Dachshund Oodie, sausage dog gift ideathe oodie
Price: £59 (was £89)

theoodie.co.uk

How cute is this Oodie with a dachshund design? Essentially an oversized hoodie with the texture of a dressing gown, it's brilliant for snuggling up on the sofa with your pup in tow. We found it extremely fluffy and comfortable to wear, thanks to the combination of a flannel fleece interior and ToastyTek™ flannel fleece exterior. It even has a built-in hood for extra warmth on those days that are exceptionally bitter.

I love the addition of a front pocket, which you can use to keep your hands warm or temporarily store your phone, hairbands, or other bits and bobs as you lounge around or move from room to room.

I find the Oodie brilliant for lounging at home on particularly chilly days. It's super thick and fluffy, but it's not overly heavy. As a Dachshund owner myself, I love the print of this particular design - it's so cute!

Reviewed by Arabella Horspool, a Commercial Content Writer at Yours.co.uk.

Pros

  • Easy to clean as it's machine washable
  • One size but fits most people (as it's designed to be the equivalent of a 6XL hoodie)

Cons

  • It is bulky, which can make it hard to store

Best for a food gift

A Dozen Chocolate Dapper DogsHotel Chocolat

Delight their taste buds with these delectable Chocolate Dapper Dogs from Hotel Chocolat. The pack contains 12 milk chocolates, each round with white and dark chocolate detailing. While you can open the packet and scoff them all in one go (no judgment here), we also think they'd look lovely as cake toppers.
Most of the reviewers' state that they are absolutely delicious or that they look like their very own four-legged friend.

Pros

  • Made from a high-quality, 40 percent cocoa
  • 12 per pack, all neatly packaged

Cons

  • Not very big, which doesn't make them great for sharing

Things to consider when buying sausage dog gifts

When selecting gifts for sausage dog lovers, it's important to consider a few key factors to ensure your gift is well-received and appreciated:

Personal preferences: Take into account the recipient's personal tastes and preferences. Are they drawn to cute and whimsical items, or do they prefer more practical gifts?

Breed-specific items: Make sure the gift is tailored to dachshund lovers specifically. Look for items featuring dachshund motifs, prints, or references to the breed.

Quality: Opt for high-quality items that are durable and well-made. This ensures that the gift will last and be enjoyed for years to come.

Utility: Consider how the gift will be used. Is it something that will add value to the recipient's life, such as a practical accessory or useful item for their dachshund?

Budget: Finally, consider your budget and choose a gift that fits within your means while still being thoughtful and meaningful to the recipient. Remember, it's the thought that counts!
