Yes they really do! Did you know that people spend more on their pets than they do on children? With more and more people delaying having children or not at all this market is booming. Adding a range of pet themed gift products or bespoke pet hampers is a great way to extend your product offering. New puppy/kitten hampers, pet gift hampers or personalised pet blankets are some ideas but also adding animal themed mugs, photo frames and other gifts is a great way to appeal to this market.Some people even have puppy showers now to welcome the new arrival and our paw print cupcake stand is perfect for this! You could also consider adding home baked dog treats to your product offering.
The biggest increase we have seen is the market for pet clothing and now Angel stock a range of themed outfits that are proving very popular!
This is an enormous market and one to consider as an add on to your business.

Business Marketing Tips from Angel Wholesale
Linking your product marketing to current affairs and upcoming events is a great way to promote your business. It is always a good idea to have a basic marketing plan for at least 6 mths ahead so you can plan your products and purchasing. ie Father’s Day, Christmas, Mother’s Day, Valentines or you could even look at slightly less well known events. Religious events are always an additional one you could use – Spring and early summer are popular for Christenings & Communion, you have Diwali, International events such as Thanks giving so you can appeal to a wider audience. Sport is another interest you could appeal to. Its a great way to stimulate your customers to take another look and consider other gifts or products that they would not usually think about. Also think about other family members they might buy for siblings, cousins, Father’s, Mother’s etc so you do not limit your market too much and you are not competing against other businesses for the exactly the same market. Consider adds on ie Nappy Cake + Mum to be + Sibling Gift
At the moment we have the Olympics and here is an example of how we have linked our products to the event:
