Twelve Christmas Present Ideas for the Animal Lover in Your Life
Everybody has a favourite bird or animal. Some adore creatures from the English countryside: squirrels, hares, hedgehogs, badgers. Others are wild about animals from distant shores: zebras, lions, tigers. Whether your buying for a fox fan or a lion lover, I’m sure to have the perfect Christmas present. Today I’ve put together my ultimate list of animal art gifts to help you with your Christmas shopping. And I’ve got something to suit every budget, so what are you waiting for? Get shopping!
- Hooray for Hares!
Who doesn’t love the sight of a hare racing over a country scene? But what of this rare sighting of a group of hares running together? This beautiful art print is taken from a painting of a scene I have watched many times here on the Yorkshire Wolds. Sized at 122cm x 67cm framed, it also makes a stunning impact on the wall. All my limited edition prints are printed to the highest quality on heavyweight watercolour paper using light fast inks. Click on the image above to buy.
2. Barmy for Barn Owls!
If like me your buying for someone who adores barn owls then this beautiful limited edition print of a barn owl flying is for you this Christmas. Measuring 74cm x 57cm in this elegant frame, it’s guaranteed to spin any bird lover’s head all the way round.
3. Zany about Zebras
The call of the wild is deep within us all. I watched this zebra in Tanzania’s Ngorongoro crater, an old volcanic bowl that teams with wildlife. This limited edition measures a dramatic 99cm x 59cm in this frame, making a real statement on your wall. Click on the image to buy.
4. Passionate about Partridges?
There’s something so very Christmassy about a partridge. I’ve painted both English and French partridges for you to choose from. Don’t they look beautiful framed in this walnut burr? And they will look even better wrapped under the Christmas tree this year! Click on the link to view and buy.

This hedgehog curled up in a bed of Autumn leaves is sure to pull at the heart strings this Christmas. Framed in this oak, rustic country frame it suits most decors. But if you prefer another frame, then click on the link to choose from a selection and to buy.

12. Go really wild and buy an original painting.
A unique one-off gift that will only go up in value. The gift of one of my original paintings is the ultimate Christmas present and one that goes on giving long after the day. I used a combination of pencil and acrylic for this picture because I thought this medium really captured the soft down feathers of this beautiful bird. I watched this particular grebe nesting on the ponds at York university. Click on the image to buy this very special Christmas present.
