The holidays are around just around the corner! After doing a little shopping for my pups on Cyber Monday, I decide to compile a short list of well designed holiday gifts for cats, dogs, birds and their people. Having been a designer for the past 25 years, I am inspired constantly by the creativity out there.
The Nog Hen House by Matthew Hayward and Nadia Turn is a perfect companion to any modern home. Calling all modern farmers, this henhouse is for you! Complete with stainless steel trimmings and a skylight, compact, fox proof, this is deluxe living for up to 4 chic hens. View the rest of the modernist collection of coops at modernfarmer.com
Sculptural Bird Feeders
Charm modern birds with this welded stainless steel bird feeder in a beautiful patina turquoise and modern rustic orange. A metal rod serves as a perch and an anchor to a simple yet sturdy piece. Feeder tray has an easy to remove piece of stainless steel for cleaning. You can find loads of other beautiful pieces in Joe’s etsy store. You can find some of his “work in progress” pieces on his blog.
Move over man cave, here comes cat cave! In her Etsy shop AgnesFelt, each piece is handmade with natural wool. Each piece is a work of art. Eco friendly, natural, cozy, what’s not to like? You can find more of AgnesFelt designs here.
Automatic Feeding Smart Toy
Foobler is using interactive technology combining a smart toy AND a food dispenser. There are 6 pods, and you can set a timer for a bell to ring. When the bell rings, the pet can roll the toy around and treats/food will appear. You can set Foober’s timer in 15/30/60/90 minute intervals to dispense food and treats to for up to 9 hours of feeding. It’s a new way to forage and gather! Learn more http://thefoobler.com/.
