You may, or may not, already know that Amazon has a ‘handmade’ section on their website that is used by small business owners to sell their bespoke handmade products.
We know that a lot of our readers are animal lovers, so we had a quick look on Amazon Handmade and picked out five of the best products which we think our animal-loving readers might like:
‘The decoration is made from 3mm thick Birch Plywood and is professionally cut and finished in-house before we print the design on the front in full colour for a long-lasting, vibrant finish. The decoration includes a 5mm wide Red Satin Ribbon, so it is ready to hang.
BEST REVIEW: ‘Firstly I loved the look of the product, both simple and yet easily customisable without it being breed specific. So I bought one for a friend with a new puppy, the delivery date was in a few weeks but that was fine as there was still plenty of time before Christmas, then it turned up a day later! Brilliant service for delivery. I liked that one so much that I then bought a second one for another friend, which has come out just as good! Printed onto the wood, lovely little gift for someone with a new dog. Thank you’ – Donna Moran

‘Beautiful handcrafted coffee/cafetiere cosies, made from British designer Sophie Allport’s fabric collection. Would make a perfect Kitchen gift for her. The cosy fits a UK 8 cup sized cafetiere (approx 25cm height x 16cm width inc handle) as the cover measures 35cm height x 25cm width and is designed so that the plunger can be ‘up’ whilst the coffee brews, so it is still piping hot when it is time to drink. There is a decorative wooden button to the front and back of the hanging loop. It is lined with an off white fabric and thick polyester wadding to keep your coffee nice and hot. Perfect accessory for any Sophie Allport collector’.
BEST REVIEW: ‘This was a gift for a discerning lady. The attractive cosy is actually being used, to keep freshly boiled water, in a very small jug kettle, warm whilst the owner enjoys their cup of tea (which was made when the kettle was boiled). The water which has been kept warm is then used for washing up. There is much to be learnt from befriending a nonagenarian; their hints and tips are very helpful for making life easier for other nonagenarians!’ – ‘Novice’
