Dog-lovers are truly a breed of their own. Whether you’re searching for the perfect gift for a Pomeranian’s doggy dad or a Mastiff’s mama, here are four ideas to get you started.
Run-of-the-mill dog treats, while typically inexpensive, are often packed full of artificial flavoring, preservatives and other ingredients that may be harmful to a dog’s health. Gourmet dog treats can offer an organic alternative that doubles as a cute gift. Crafted in the shape of bones, bow-ties or fire hydrants, gourmet treats are a delight to the eye and filling for any pup’s tummy.
Dog Gift Baskets
Dog gift baskets are a great way to combine all of Fido’s favorites in one package. For an active pup, a toy-filled basket can provide hours of much-needed entertainment and exercise. For the pup with a sweet tooth, a basket with differently flavored treats will get him or her drooling before the wrapping paper hits the floor. With a variety of sizes available, you’ll be sure to find the best one for your friend’s pooch.
Service Gift Cards
A great way to treat your friends or family members is to grab a gift card for one of the many services their dog may need. Whether they use a dog-walking service or regularly take their dog to the local groomer, a gift card for any of these services acts as a thoughtful gift as well as a big contribution to their care routine. Gift certificates for a weekend trip to a doggy spa, for example, are a great way to provide a “vacation” for both your friends and their pups.
Immortalize man’s best friend by having his or her likeness printed on a cute throw pillow or a pair of socks. If your friends or family members have to spend their days away from their best friend, a cute coaster or custom art piece for their office will make it feel like their furry friend is there with them.
Next time you’re looking for the perfect present for a dog-lover, try one of these gifts. Your friends (and their pups) will thank you!
