Buyagift.com are making sure that aren’t the only ones getting on the Christmas jumper band wagon; our pets are getting in on the action too!
Buyagift.com have long since known that one of their customers’ greatest loves is their pets and also taking pictures of them, so following on from the success of our last ‘Pet Selfie’ (Pelfie) competition back in June they decided to launch a ‘Pet ‘Elfie’ competition, putting a festive spin on the selfie craze.
They asked customers to send pictures of their pets in their best festive outfits and upload them on to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using #BuyagiftPetElfie, with the winning festive favourite receiving a £250 Buyagift voucher, as well as a £250 donation to the charity of the winning owner’s choice.
In a recent survey the company ran with over 1,000 Buyagift customers, they found that 70% of people, who have a pet, buy or have bought Christmas presents for them, so they decided to a little Christmas present to the winning pet too!
‘We were inundated with pictures of pooches, feline friends and even reptiles, donning their best festive outfits, and it was tough to choose just one winner,’ says Buyagift.com but the winning ‘Pet ‘Elfie’ picture of 2014 is…….
Honey, a Jack Russell who has just turned one years old this week, from Worcester, below.
Honey’s owner, Caroline Virgo said, “Honey loves lots of attention and fuss and is extremely placid. As she is short haired she wears a jumper when we take her for walks when it’s cold, so she doesn’t mind wearing Elfie outfits at all!
When I found out she had won I was over the moon to say the least! My husband had an accident a couple of weeks ago, and now I will be able to take my husband for a relaxing weekend away with the prize.
My chosen charity of choice is Forest Dog Rescue – Green Gap Kennels in Far Forest, Worcestershire, who are a small charity rescue centre who do amazing work caring for the dogs that come in as unwanted pets or that have been abandoned. They don’t receive any financial support from councils or the government and work hard raising funds doing car boot sales and raffles to enable them to continue their fantastic work trying to re home dogs.”
