Coming up with gift ideas for dog lovers isn’t as easy as it sounds sometimes. Sure, you could always buy them a mug with their favorite breed, or maybe frame pictures of their fur baby, but how many times can you really do that? Don’t get me wrong, I’d wallpaper my house with pictures of my dogs, but I kind of prefer deciding which pictures get framed myself. As much as I love mugs, my cabinet is already overflowing with them! So what other kinds of gifts do you give your favorite dog lover? I’ve come up with 11 crazy cool ideas that I’d love to get myself!
Crazy Cool Gift Ideas for Dog Lovers
These gift ideas are perfect for everything from Christmas (hey, it’s coming faster than you think!), birthdays, or just to say “congratulations on your new dog!” Let’s check them out!
1- A t-shirt that lets them show off their pet parent pride
You can never go wrong with a t-shirt! Everyone wears them, so why not get one that reflects their love for dogs? We have our own line of super cool t-shirts that they’ll love!
2- Throw Pillows
I have a crazy kind of love for throw pillows! They’re such an insanely easy way to update your home decor quickly and without spending a fortune. If you know someone like me who has pillows pretty much everywhere, this is the perfect gift! I love our “Never Break Your Heart” pillow. The colors just pop, don’t they?
If you think my throw pillow obsession is extreme, you should see my son’s notebook collection! He steals pretty much every journal or wire bound notebook that comes into our house. He jots down ideas, writes stories, makes list (he totally gets that from me), and basically just fills them up with randomness. I always get him some sort of cool notebook as part of his stocking stuffers for the holiday. He’ll adore our Love Paw notebook!
4- Wall Art
Okay, so I know I said no pictures above, but wall art is a totally different thing altogether! Our Proud Pet Parent print looks fabulous in a home office, don’t you think?
5- Tote Bags
Tote bags are another thing that just about everyone needs more of. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to overfill my reusable shopping totes because I ran out of bags. I also use drawstring bags for everything from carrying my camera around a theme park to packing for a day at the pool. Our Take Animal Abuse Seriously bag is perfect for dog lovers who want to change the way people look at animal abuse.
6- Laptop Skins
Decorate a boring laptop with a fabulously funny skin, like this I Kissed a Dog and I Liked it one! I can tell you from experience that Redbubble skins are super high quality. My son had one that actually outlived his laptop! These babies can take whatever you throw at them (alas, your laptop cannot, so don’t test that theory)! It comes in just about every standard laptop size.
If you’re looking for something inexpensive to go along with another one of our gift ideas for dog lovers (or just to put in a stocking), stickers are always fun! Put them on your own notebook to customize a plain journal, stick them on your phone case, your backpack, and more!
As a proud dog parent myself, I would love any (or all!) of these gift ideas for dog lovers. Oh, and by the way, most of the designs shared above come in other formats. For example, if you love the throw pillow idea design but would rather have it on a bag or shirt, you can totally get it that way!
