The holidays are just around the corner, so this is a good time to start looking into presents for this year. While going down your list, you might have noticed that you have a dog lover among your loved ones or coworkers. If this is the case, then we have you covered.
There are millions of different products for dog lovers, and the search can become somewhat exhausting. But don't worry, we already did the research for you. We chose 10 great products for dog owners and dog lovers alike, including Hoofun's adorable and useful Dachshund Dog Shaped Silicone Ice Cube Trays. Keep reading our buying guide to find out how to choose a great present, and check out our other favorite gifts for dog lovers.
Buying a present for a dog lover is a very fun task because you get so many incredible options. There are basically two ways to go with this one: you can choose a gift for the dog or a dog-themed gift for the human or the household.
Dog parents love their dogs so much that a gift for the pup is a gift for them. However, relationships with furry friends change from person to person and dog to dog. It is very important to keep this in mind when you give them a present.
Is your friend a puppy parent who likes to dress them up and treat them like a baby? Do they like to travel with their dogs? Considering their relationship will guarantee that you pick the right present for the doggy.
Some dog accessories are better suited for specific breeds or specific dog sizes. For instance, a bag to transport a dog can only be used by humans with small dogs whereas a big ball will unlikely be a chihuahua’s favorite toy.
All doggies like to play, and there’s no such thing as having too many toys! If you find out that their dog is known for being a smart boy or girl, then you might want to stimulate their brain with a treat puzzle toy.
If they are a retriever at heart, they may love to play with a ball. They go through balls really quickly, so a new one is always welcome. Plush toys are another option. Dogs love to destroy--or rather, to cuddle with squeezy buddies.
The only downside with this kind of toy is that dogs make arbitrary decisions on whether they like them or not, so there’s always a risk that they may not like it.
If your friend likes to dress up their dog, you can give them a piece of clothing to make their pup look cute and dandy. If you go for this choice, make sure that you know the pup’s measurements so you don’t end up buying something that doesn’t fit. If you don’t have that info, you can give them an accessory such as a bow tie or a cool collar.
Maybe your dog lover doesn’t go anywhere if Fido doesn’t go. This is why facilitating transportation is a great idea. There are many options for articles to enhance their traveling, from travel belts to bags and strollers. Choose the one that matches the dog’s size and whether they prefer to walk or to travel by car.
Every dog lover is very proud of being one and they would love to show that off in their house decor. Choose a doormat, a plaque, or even kitchenware with your favorite phrase about dogs! Mugs are a popular and often customizable option.
Just make sure they have the space for it. Something small, something compact, or something that doesn’t take up a lot of space would be ideal.
Not every dog lover has the luck of having one at home. If your friend has recently lost a pet, or if they wish they could have one but don't, you can give them a present for themselves. The best part of this type of gift is that they are also an option for those who have dogs at home.
A present for a dog lover can be either for the human or for the dog. Just make sure that it's something that meets their particular needs and taste. Now, if you're ready to make that dog lover smile, here's our list of the best presents you can give them from stocking stuffers to main gifts.
