Christmas is fast approaching (how the hell did that happen?!) and we’ve got new stuff coming out the wazoo! This is our second Christmas at Smack Bang and we learnt a LOT about what you guys want to see after last season’s madness.
So this year you’ll be seeing a whole bunch more cat and dog themed gifts, and smaller, more affordable (but still great quality) products for stocking fillers and Secret Santa presents. We’ve also got a wider range of 2019 diaries, planners and calendars to help get your new year off to a flying start.
First up, and very high on the cute scale, are these adorable Customisable Pet Treat Containers from our creative friends over at Suck UK. Both fun and functional, this pet treat storage bowl has an air tight lid to ensure the contents stay fresh and comes with a cute set of stickers for creating your own animal characters.
Better yet, the stickers can be easily removed once stuck so you can switch expressions as many times as you like! Made from hard wearing bamboo fibre – a more eco-friendly material than many alternatives. The perfect gift for creative animal lovers, $30.90.
There’s no substitute for a good old-fashioned bicycle bell when you really want other people to get out of your way. The Cat Bike Bell, also from the cool cats at Suck UK, uses centuries old, tried and trusted technology - a compact brass bell with a sprung thumb lever.
Good and loud and guaranteed to startle even the most oblivious dog walker. A great gift for feline obsessed cyclists - you know who you are, $25.90.
Sticking with the pet theme, these sweet Car Air Fresheners from Pro & Hop have just landed! The range features Pugs, French Bulldogs, Dachshunds, Toy Poodles, German Shepherds and Insta famous furry pals like Smoothie The Cat and Frankie The ‘Lil Sausage, in a range of scents including grape, mango and pineapple. These cuties will keep your car smelling divine for up to four weeks! Perfect stocking fillers and Secret Santa gifts at just $7.90.
Also here to keep things smelling fresh is the new ‘Clean As A Whistle’ Dog Shampoo from Kin Pet. Made in New Zealand, this gentle, all-natural shampoo is made from Manuka and Kanuka oils to help give your dog a healthy, shiny coat and provides natural antiseptic skin protection (perfect for all those spring nasties). It also contains lemongrass and neem oil which both help to naturally repel ticks and fleas. Free from sulphates, parabens, artificial dyes, colours and fragrances. The honey scent really shines through, and with an easy squeeze bottle Kin makes bath time a breeze! $29.00.
2019 is just around the corner (I know, right?!) so it’s about that time to start buying planners and calendars to get your new year sorted. Back by popular demand is the Nooshel Dog Diary.
Keep track of puppy playdates, vet appointments, human and dog holidays. vaccination schedules and more with our stylish, signature diary designed for the modern dog lover. Inspirational quotes throughout pay tribute to our four-legged friends, while stickers let you mark important dates, a grosgrain bookmark keeps your place, and a sleek pen to top it all off. These come beautifully boxed, making them ideal gifts for the dog lover in your life, $54.90. Hot tip - Rip out the quotes at the end of the year and frame them!
We’ve also got two stunning diaries from Blacklist, a new brand to Smack Bang. Choose from the petite, weekly speed, Blush Vegan Leather Agenda Diary, $54.90 - or the ULTIMATE day-to-a-page Black Linen Desk Diary (personal fave!), $75.90. Both are exceptional quality, have gold foil accents and ribbon markers so it really comes down to how much space you need to scribble!
If you’re not a diary kind of person but still need something to remind you what day it is, you can’t go past the 2019 Llama Wall Calendar from NZ designer Alice Berry! With a different llama for every month, including one sporting an impressive slug for Movember, these calendars will make excellent Christmas presents for almost anyone! $35.00.
