10 Unique Christmas Gifts for Dog Lovers
I don't know about you, but we're over here buying presents for our pups every month of the year - birthdays, half birthdays, gotcha days, 'Congrats on learning a new skill' days or those 'just because' times. We find an excuse for everything.
So when the festive season rolls around, it's just an excuse for us to extend that gift-giving to our friends and family, ensuring every present is dog or animal themed. They love the extra thought that goes into their gifts and we love giving something that isn't just another kitchen appliance or new technology to play with for a couple of days and takes up space on your bench.
We spend almost the full year coming up with unique gift ideas for the animal lovers in our lives, so this year, we're bringing the list to you so that you, too, can wow your friends and family with your thoughtfulness.
The Paw Print PendantA fine necklace engraved with a mini scale version of your dog's actual paw print? Yes please. It has multiple chain options and three different choices of metals, from dejamarc.com
Sometimes reserved for those who have lost a pet, but we think it's a beautiful personalised gift for every pet parent to keep their fur-babies close. Choose everything from your style - a ring, bracelet, cufflinks, necklace, earrings - then choose your background colour, a shimmer colour and the contents of your piece (we're going with a tiny piece of our dog's fur) and the team will get to work at creating your one-of-a-kind momento, from lunaandmejewellery.com
Can you think of anything cuter than a family photo of your new baby and it's protectors? Nope - us either! And this one has lots of personalisation options! Choose up to 3 dogs to feature on your bub's onesie, select their breed character from a list of 109 options and add their names, from callie.com
Matching XMAS Socks & Pet Bandana
We might be biased about this one, but it's the perfect KK Gift or small meaningful way to match with your pups for those all important family Christmas photos. They come in 3 different print options and those socks are luxuriously soft bamboo that will keep your feet thanking you long past the festive season.
