2017 Top 15 Gift Guide for the Pet Lover in your life!
Welcome to November, and before you say it…I know, I know, a gift list for Christmas BEFORE Thanksgiving has even happened??? I get it, I say the same thing when Christmas decor is up in stores before we carve the turkey, but hold up a second, I have some logic! Some of these items are custom ordered, which means you HAVE to order them mid November in order to get them in time for the gift giving season. SO, take a look, or save this for later, whatever, but this is my reviewed list of my favorite items for the 2017 holiday season. Some of these products are shown in holiday swag, but never fear, they have awesome patterns and decor for your home, loved one, and pets for the full year around if holiday garb isn’t your thing! Take a look!
#1- Custom dog bowl stations- Raised dog bowls with a storage space built-in, I mean seriously? Of course I needed one of these! I picked the 3 bowl option because I like all of the food and water bowls in one area. This way the center bowl is water, and I feed on each side. I do love slow down options, so we have some new goodie gobblers, to put inside our bowls to keep Vino, the vacuum cleaner, from sucking it down too fast! This is from Two Moose Design’s shop on etsy, and there are a TON of options to choose from, this is the Medium in Ebony. Keep in mind this is a custom item, and large to ship, so you will want to order by November 20th, and don’t forget to use our 10% off coupon code TINYTOES at checkout from Nov 1-30th!
#2- Custom dog collars Everyone needs a new dog collar every now and then, and if you are anything like me, I order a new one…every month. Karma visits the hospital, and I like her to sport holiday swag for the kiddos! I found these super cute custom engraved collars at Mimi Green. They are based out of New Mexico, so make sure you reference the site for delivery dates if you want to get some new collars by the holiday! I LOVE that these collars give you everything you need to keep your dog well tagged, without the jingle of actual tags! Make sure to take advantage of the discount TINYTOES10 at check out, and stop by their Instagram @shopmimigreenandwally and Facebook @shopmimigreen
#3- Qalo rings So these are my favorite personal item this year, because they are so versatile! I have been sporting one for a bit now, and I wear it most days in and out, and I tend to switch to my wedding ring when I’m heading off for a date night, or function with the hubs! I have a large black diamond in my ring, and it gets in the way ALL the time! I never wear it to the gym, for obvious reasons, but also when I was working with the dogs, hiking, running, cleaning, you know…living the mom life in general because it was so hard to wear gloves or keep it clean! Keep an eye out for their Black Friday Sale, so you can snag a few of their rings for any outgoing and busy guy, or gal out there. Definitely a Dog trainer MUST!
#4- Red Dingo Dog Tags- These are by far my favorite dog tags! I love that they are thick, covered in a clear enamel, AND they guarantee the integrity of the engraving as long as the tags are intact. In the many years of sporting these on my dogs, I have never had to return one for being unable to read the information on the back, and we have tags that have been used for close to 8 years now! They come in small, Engraved Stainless Steel with Enamel Pet I.D. Tag – Medium Dog” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>medium, and large, and have a huge selection of adorable designs! I’ve been known to use these on my car key, diaper bags, lunch boxes, back packs, and gym bags! The possibilities are endless!
#5- T-shirt– Okay, so who doesn’t love a new tee? Well I personally love one just a tad bit more if it has a dog on it! Inkopious makes these adorable T-shirts, and you can find different breeds through their site so you can sport your best pal! Personally I’ve already ordered a pit bull one, but you know…I’m pretty partial! You can find them on Amazon now (yes that means prime shipping!), on Etsy, and on their website!
#6- Ruffwear– Okay, so this one is more of a brand favorite than anything! I order from these guys all year long, and I am never disappointed by the quality of what they send me! We have had the same singletrack backpacks for years, and they are still in awesome shape! Karma has been sporting the same webmaster harness for 6 years when she’s working, and it’s still in really great (all be it hairy) condition. Really I buy new things because they let them out in new colors (Shhh…don’t tell Jeff…). So check out these coats for the season, if you have a winter sport, dog loving friend, this is the place to go! You can order online here, or if you’re local to Salt Lace City, you can find them at The Dogs Meow!
#7- Chew Toys– With big dogs of my own, and boarding dogs of all sizes and chewing abilities, I am always looking for chew items that can withhold them for a reasonable amount of time. Benebones have been a fave here for the past few months! I am a big fan of how long they withstand strong chewers, and they would DEFINITELY make a great stocking stuffer!!! Okay, so again you can find these here (yep, click this link), or if you’re a local, you can find them at The Dogs Meow!
#8- Mug– If you have ever been by my house, you’d know I have a serious thing for mugs…especially dog related mugs! These would be amazing stuffed with treats or hot chocolate, and so easy to do as mass gift items for friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues! I am loving the 4 options they have right now, AND the fact that they are available with Prime 2-day shipping is just an awesome bonus!
#9- Door Mats– DOGNATTi makes my favorite door mat! I am hoping my hubby takes a hint and orders one for the side door too, (I’m talking to you Jeff…) because this sums my house up VERY well! I should add here, that DOGNATTi has a LOT of really adorable items in their shop! From cups and coasters to leash holders and signs, so go check it out! Use the coupon code FURRYPAWS10 for 10% off $50.00 or more until December 1st, which is going to be the last day for guaranteed Christmas Day delivery.
#10- Tea infuser– This puppy tea infuser is ADORABLE! I am a crazy tea drinker, and if you know anyone else that is, that also fancies dogs, this is the ideal stocking stuffer, or small token! I love that they are metal, because they seem to have a longer expectancy than my silicone ones. So grab a couple this season and make the dog loving tea drinker in your life happy! I JUST stumbled on this adorable cat option, for those cat lovers in your life too!
#11- Bandanas– The California Chi outdid themselves this year getting bandanas ready for the holiday season! These are so cute, and versatile…by that I mean, yes they are cute, but they also grab Vino’s drool! So that’s a win-win in my book! Check out April’s clothing and swag magic, and stuff the doggie stockings in your life! She takes custom orders, so you KNOW you can get something for everyone!
#12- Jewlery– Who doesn’t love some new bling? I am in love with all of the detail in the work from Gracefully made Jewelry on Etsy. I love the look of personalized tags with my kids names, with an adorable added heart and paw charm, and I can see these being a great memory item! Since they are personalized items, make sure you check with the shop when you order to see what the cut off dates are!
#13- Dog Treats– I’m always looking for new treats, and these Lucky Turkey Nuggets are among our faves here in the Oliver house! They are created specifically for Pet Wants, who also has a nice selection of other treats as well. These dried treats are going to make AWESOME stocking stuffers! So grab a few bags, and spoil your furry friend this holiday season! Oh, and did I mention…they deliver???!!!
#14 Dog Treat Container– I personally hate the look of resealed open bags of treats on my kitchen counter, so I have a super cute treat container to keep it all in line. This is my favorite jar on my counter right now, and I love to fill it with Old Mother Hubbard biscuits and keep them around for quick bribery.
#15- Blanket– I know I can’t pass up a new fluffy throw, especially if it’s cold outside! I am stocking up on these paw print blankets this year, and I can’t wait to sit by my tree, under the classic white lights, sipping out of my new mug with my super cute puppy steeper and dig into whatever new psych book I have on my list! So bundle up with your fuzzy pal, and enjoy your holiday season!
