Fairies and familiars are some of the best guardians of the home. With the fair folk so close to the natural world and its creatures, it’s not strange for them to bring animals into their fold. In turn, the animals watch over us. Pets are family as much to us as they are to fairies, so why not bring some joyful fairy magic to our pets and give the fairies in our gardens some familiars? Have a look at these adorable and beautiful fairy pet items:
1. Garden Hedgehogs
- This bundle of little hedgies could paw curiously through the grass and peer out from behind toadstools and mushrooms. Hedgehogs are shy timid, but they curl into protective spiky balls and your garden fairies might enjoy having one around to help them protect the flowers. Get these little hedgehogs at Etsy.
2. Fairy Garden Dragon Reading a Book
- Sometimes you just want to join the fairies outside quietly, reading in a shady nook under a tree.
