Described as a Border Collie online gift shop, Ollie Collie sell a wide range of items and I am delighted to be featuring them in my Christmas guide. For the purposes of this review* they were kind enough to gift me a lovely, high gloss Christmas mug. It is just one of the gift options that you will find on their online shop.
Designed and hand printed in Sedbergh a lot of care and attention clearly goes into making these mugs. The artwork is expertly drawn and the print is seamlessly finished. It is dishwasher safe too which gets a thumbs up from me!
The business is inspired by the founder’s pet Border Collie, Ollie, who was rescued as a pup and as is obvious from their blog, is a huge part of the family! That drive and passion that they have from Ollie seems to be channelled into their creations which are not run of the mill, found everywhere type products.
This mug is weighty and great quality. I will be honest, I’m most likely to drink from it, but if you follow me on Facebook you might have seen the cake in a mug recipe that I shared? Well, this would be perfect for that too. It would also brighten up our drawing area as a perfect pencil crayon pot. In fact you could use it for a number of purposes! For me though, it is a perfect, snuggle up with a cuppa type of mug.
As a dog lover myself, this company really appeals to me. I’m sure that the variety of products would suit a number of members of the family too, with children’s hoodies, keyrings and t-shirts making up some of the range.
To find out more about the lovely Ollie Collie, check out their website here. Prices start at £3 so you may also find a perfect stocking filler. Plus, at the time of writing this they have a sale on!
