The Lily’s Kitchen Advent Calendar and three other fab festive products

Christmas is well and truly my favourite time of year – cosy Christmas jumpers, crackling log fires and twinkly fairy lights on the tree. And now, Lily’s Kitchen are making it easier than ever to get your dog in on the festive fun with a selection of Christmas goodies – making it their favourite time of year too!

From a daily Advent calendar biscuit, to a special dinner on December 25 – dogs are part of the family, so it’s only right they’re able to indulge in a few festive treats. This year, there are also a few new additions to the Lily’s Kitchen Christmas range, including turkey treats and a gorgeous gift box.

All of the products are beautifully packaged in midnight blue complete with a little drummer dog to finish off the festive look – a stunning update on last year’s red panto-themed products.

So, here are four Lily’s Kitchen Christmas goodies that The Scamps can’t wait to get their paws on.

Lily’s Kitchen Advent calendar for Dogs – £10

I get Phoebe and Frank a Lily’s Kitchen advent calendar every year, because I adore the morning routine as we open the doors together. The dogs know that shortly after unwrapping my Lindt chocolate, they’ll be getting one of the three different kinds of tasty Lily’s treats from behind their own door. As such, the slightest sound of perforated cardboard being opened sends a scamper of paws across the laminate into the kitchen.

The Lily’s Kitchen hand drawn Advent Calendar for dogs features 24 windows to take you all the way to Christmas day. The design features the iconic Christmas drummer dog who counts down to Christmas with a beat of a drum, as well as canines in Christmas jumpers and rocking horses. Each drumroll welcomes the festivities, the feasts, the opening of presents and wet-nose kisses under the mistletoe, or so the story goes.

Behind each door, each day offers a surprise of either the Lily’s Kitchen Rise and Shines, Training Treats or Bedtime Biscuits. We’re big fans of the Lily’s Kitchen biscuit range, and we love their new pouches, which are resealable for freshness, and are 100% recyclable.

For those who aren’t familiar with the biscuits, here’s what you can expect to find behind each door – and on many occasions, there’s more than one, so multi-dog households may not need to share!

  • Rise & Shines – Flower-shaped treats made with beef liver, fresh carrots, blackstrap molasses and alfalfa to help keep your dog’s coat as shiny as a Christmas bauble.
  • Cheese & Apple Training Treats – A troupe of mini organic bone-shaped biscuits, made with organic apples and farmhouse cheddar to help keep your dog’s attention on wintry walks in the park.
  • Bedtime Biscuits – Blissful bedtime treats, made with honey, yoghurt, chamomile and passion flowers, to help soothe your dog on those exciting nights before Christmas Day.

Lily’s Kitchen Three Bird Feast for Dogs – £2.85

I’m absolutely convinced that the dogs know they get a Christmas dinner on December 25. As soon as they’ve scoffed their final Advent calendar biscuit, it’s like they know it’s only a matter of hours before their Three Bird Feast.

Christmas dinner is the superior meal of the whole year, and no-one can tell me otherwise. Honeyglazed carrots, goose fat roasties with turkey and gammon for me, and The Scamps get all the trimmings with Lily’s Kitchen’s festive food offering, too.

The popular Three Bird Feast is comprised of 40% turkey, 10% goose and 10% duck. It also features seasonal parsnips and cranberries, with carrots broccoli, apples and minerals. It contains a range of herbs and botanicals, like rosehip and milk thistle, which are rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants.

The showstopping dinner can be fed alone as a complete meal, as a topper, or even get creative and spread it on a Lickimat, or stuff it in a Kong to keep your dogs entertained whilst the family share gifts or make sure the turkey doesn’t end in disaster.

And what’s better on Boxing Day than left over Christmas dinner? We’ve bought two tins of the Three Bird Feast from Hounds to make sure the guys have enough in for a couple of days, because I love nothing more than picking at leftover turkey for three days.

Lily’s Kitchen Festive Turkey Jerky Treats for Dogs – £3

Who said turkey is just for humans at Christmas? Lily’s Kitchen have launched their brand new Turkey Jerky treats for the festive season, which is completely different to last year’s turkey and cranberry biscuits. The proper meat jerky is drool-worthy, made with 68% freshly prepared turkey, which is grain free.

It’s easy to overdo it at Christmas (mostly on cheese, for me), so Lily’s Kitchen recommend feeding up to five of these a day, and avoid feeding scraps under the table, no matter how tempting.

As these are limited edition, you might want to stock up on them and opt for the box of eight – this way, you can even gift your canine friends a bag for Christmas.

Lily’s Kitchen Cracking Festive Treats for Dogs – £16

Is it even Christmas if you haven’t got the festive biscuit tin or a giant tub of Quality Street and spend the best part of an hour snaffling all the good ones (shortbreads and toffee pennies).

Well, Lily’s Kitchen have come up with a genius way for your dog to do the very same – though I can’t imagine any of them will be resigned to the bottom of the tin – it’ll just be crumbs when they’re done! Full of Festive Turkey Jerky, Scrumptious Duck & Venison Sausages, and Best Ever Beef Mini Burgers, this Cracking Festive Treat tin for Dogs is a great way to stop the dog slobbering over your Christmas pyjamas whilst you rifle through the biscuit tin yet again.

The tin is really lovely, white with gold detailing, which can be reused to store your dogs’ favourite Lily’s Kitchen treats year round. Alongside the Jerky, the duck and venison sausages are 70% duck and 4% venison, whilst the beef burgers are 80% beef.

There’s so much for your pups to get their paws on – but which will yours be getting their snoot into first?
