We all know dogs are man’s best friend, but shopping for their owners can sometimes be a tricky — dare we say, ruff — business. Luckily, we put together a list of the best gifts for dog lovers that will have all your furry friends rolling over in excitement this holiday season. Whether your friend’s canine companion is large, small, old, or still in their puppy years, the paw-sibilities are endless with these 10 pet-friendly gifts.
Gifts for New Dog Moms (and Dads)
Getting a dog is an exciting and stressful time for new pet parents. Here are some ideas for the best dog mom (and dad) gifts that will prepare homes for incoming puppies just before Santa Claus arrives.
|One of the hardest parts about getting a new dog is having to vacuum up that dreaded first layer of freshly shed puppy fur. With the Roomba i7+ Robot Vacuum, though, you won’t even have to give it a second thought. This automated powerhouse learns, maps, and adapts using Imprint Smart Mapping technology. Headed out for a night on the town and want to come back to a clean, fur-less living room? No problem. With the iRobot HOME App, you can control where, when, and how this smart Roomba cleans.|
|You can’t train a new dog without treats, and these White Metal Pet Treat Containers are a great place to store them. Complete with a lid and handles to complement its sleek design, this container keeps all of your dog treats fresh and in one place. It doesn’t hurt that these adorable buckets subtly fit into any home decor style as well. These containers offer the perfect mix of form and function that dog lovers and their canine friends are bound to love.|
|Did someone say bone appetit? Serve up your pooch’s dinner in style with these White Dinner and Drinks Ceramic Pet Bowls. Every puppy wants a Christmas gift that involves food, so why not let them eat like the canine royalty they are? Designed with a raised, in-mold sentiment shaped like a bone, these bowls come in a set of two — one for eating and one for drinking. Your pup will think they’re eating a meal made by a five-star, dog-approved chef!|
|A gift for dog lovers that new pet parents do NOT want is waking up at 3 a.m. on stormy nights to stressed out puppy whining. That’s why the most essential item in any new dog owner’s arsenal is this Large Gusset Brown Dog Bed. Not only will it keep pooches comfy and calm all night long, but it’s a heck of a lot cuter than an old, beat up sleeping mat in your living room. The cute “sleeps with dogs” detailed on a brown finish offers just enough personality to stand out without clashing with the rest of your home’s furniture. Plus, who doesn’t love a good pup-themed play on words?|
Unique Gifts for Dog Lovers That Have Everything
You’ve seen them around: the dog owners that can’t pass the pet aisle at the grocery store without buying a shiny new puppy toy. Their homes are filled with everything a dog could ever want — how are you supposed to top that? Here are a few ideas for overly indulgent dog lovers to get you on the right track.
|Your dog mom friend may already have a leash (or, let’s be honest, a handful of them) lying around the house. But we’ll wager they don’t have this matching Assorted Dog Mug and Leash Set. Available in three styles, this sentimental mug and leash set makes the perfect personalized puppy gift for the owner that takes their dog on long walks in the morning with a cup of Jo in hand. Choose between “My dog walks all over me,” “Happiness is a long walk with your dog,” and “I’m the boss…I tell myself as I take my dog out for the 15th time today” messaging to tailor your gift for any pet lover personality.|
|If you’re looking for a more understated dog Christmas gift this holiday season, try out this Blue Cotton Knit Dog Baby Blanket Throw. Knit with muted blues and pastel colors to create a soft, yet fun design, this blanket will add just the right amount of style to any dog lover’s collection of trinkets. Sure, it’s meant to be used for a human child’s nursery, but to some owners, dogs are their children — and that indisputable truth makes this gift idea as practical as it is adorable. Wrap up your pup for Christmas Eve so visions of sugarplums dance in their heads…or, you know, whatever the dog equivalent of “sugar plums” is.|
|Everyone knows dog lovers are a sappy bunch, so here’s a gift that will really evoke furry friend-related emotion every time they walk through the front door. This Man’s Best Friend Doormat is a simple, yet powerful reminder of just how important dogs can be in our lives — not to mention it’s incredibly useful for those muddy days when you need a place to wipe off your feet (and paws) before going in the house. Made with coir and vinyl for extra durability, this doormat is built to handle any type of weather while still retaining its shape, making it the perfect long-term gift any dog owner would appreciate.|
Household Gift Ideas for Dog Lovers
It’s common for the average dog owner to keep a few photos of their precious pup framed in their home. But why stop there? Here are some pet-themed home decorations perfect for spicing up any owner’s doggy den and are great Christmas gift ideas for dog lovers to boot.
|It’s regal. It’s sophisticated. It’s downright adorable. This Rust Dancing Dogs Sculpture is just what every pup-loving household needs. Whether your interior design style is minimalist, mid-century modern, urban, or contemporary, this simple piece complements them all by adding its own rustic flare to your interior decor. It doesn’t hurt that the personality oozing out of this statue is sure to put a smile on anybody’s face as they pass it either.|
|What’s a pup-themed home without these adorably funny Dog Long Gusset Pillows? Available in both gray and cream colors, these decorative cushions add life and humor to any room’s decor thanks to their printed covers that read “move over, the dog sits here” and “every family needs a dog.” To any dog-loving owner out there, truer words have never been spoken.|
|Of course, all dog decorations don’t just have to be placed inside the home — there’s plenty of room outdoors to show a little love for your pup as well. This holiday season, consider getting this Flat Top Dog Bench as a gift for your dog-loving friend’s yard. Made of poly stone, this brown and white bench will be the perfect addition to any garden or outdoor sanctuary. Plus, it’s a great place to sit down and play a nice game of fetch with your pooch.|
