Animal Cups and Mugs


If you're looking for a gift for an animal lover, cups and mugs can make lovely presents.  There are some delightful ranges about, and some of them give you the chance to support wildlife conservation and the conservation of animal habitats with your gift.  Every time your loved one makes a hot drink, they can enjoy your gift and know that your gift has helped wildlife.

The Original Gift Company has a Dog Breed mug - you select one of 20 breeds to put on the mug and you can also personalise it as well.  Breeds include a German Sheperd, Retriever, Black labador, Boxer, Beagle, Greyhound and Border Collie - but there are more to choose from.  Click here to go to The Original Gift Company.
