You didn’t think I could kick off the #1 gift giving time of the year without showing some love for my fellow four-legged animal lovers, did you? Just in time for the holiday shopping that I KNOW you all are going to commence on Friday (maybe some of you have already started…), I give you my top gifts for dog lovers! Bonus: many of these are small businesses, so keep your eyes peeled for discounts this weekend!
Best Gifts For Dog Lovers
Sea Bags Dog Tote: I have been a lover of Sea Bags for a long time, so when I saw they had a Chocolate Lab bag, I knew I couldn’t live without it. Not only are their bags durable, they’re great for doggy beach-goers who need to transport extra towels, toys, leashes, treats, water, portable bowls…you see where this is going. Made from durable sails that have been recycled into tote bags, Sea Bags offers pawsitively awesome options for dog lovers.
Custom Dog Illustration: We have custom portraits of Judy & Bill from Cards for Canines and it’s uncanny how good Abby (the owner) is at capturing the essence of your pup. Since we got our portraits done, I’ve ordered some as gifts and they turn out amazing every single time. Get your orders in now for the holidays!
Dog T-Shirt: If you’ve been around blog land for any length of time you know Taylor over at The Daily Tay. She’s just as obsessed with her dog as I am, which led her to creating “I Just Want To Hang With My Dog” t-shirts among others in her shop. You want to know how I know they’re good? She has people every single week trying to rip off her designs. Grab one for yourself and all your dog-loving friends this holiday!
Dog Drink Stirrers: I cannot say enough good things about the fine ladies behind Jenn & Jules Designs. Their custom drink stirrers are what stocking stuffer dreams are made of — truly! When I discovered they made a dog silhouette version for nearly every breed you can think of in their signature swizzle sticks, I snatched up a few for my fellow animal lovers. Word on the street is that they’re having a sale this weekend – so go check them out!
Custom Cookie Cutters: You know me, I love a good homemade dog treat recipe, so imagine my delight when I came upon these custom cookie cutters on Etsy. You can get them in the shape of your dog breed, a paw print (would be good for cats, too!) or just a simple bone, and all options are under $20! Name That Cookie, you’ve outdone yourselves!
Cocktail Napkins: Oh, where to begin on August Morgan’s cocktail napkins? For any dog-loving diva looking to spiff up her bar cart, look no further! My personal favorite are the Labrador Retriever napkins (obviously), but you can’t go wrong with her Hair Of The Dog style either! I’ll drink to that 😉
