Why should babies and kids going back to school have all the fun? This Pet Chalkboard Photo Prop from Pearhead is perfect for new puppy parents or any dog lover that celebrates their dog’s milestones.

Rescued Wine Upcycled wine bottle soy candles

Rescued Wine Candles check a lot of boxes. They’re environmentally friendly, their scents are wine inspired, and they donate a portion of their proceeds to animal rescue. And, they make a perfect holiday gift! These soy candles are poured into repurposed, hand-cut wine bottles in small batches in California.

PetCube Bites

I often include a pet tech item in this gift guide, and the pet cameras on the market just keep getting better and more innovative. The latest and greatest, PetCube Bites, is an HD pet camera AND treat dispenser. It features 2-way audio and night vision. But, the big seller for me is being able to talk to your pet and toss them a treat, right from your phone, while you’re away from home!

Curly Tail Coffee

Curly Tail Coffee is a small batch coffee roaster out of Pennsylvania. It’s owned by two pug lovers and $1 from every bag of coffee goes to pug (or pig) rescue. While any variety would make a wonderful gift, they also have a holiday roast sampler available, perfect for gift giving!


Lilipi pug pillow with santa hat

I received one of these pug pillows (sans Santa hat) as a gift from Pugs’ foster mom and I absolutely adore it. But, Lilipi has a huge variety of breeds to choose from. They also have a limited selection via Amazon.

No need to knock, we know you're here welcome mat

Pretty self explanatory and all too real. May as well laugh! Five dollars from the purchase of this welcome mat (and any of their pet themed mats) is donated to animal rescue.

The best part of Dogs and Their People, published by the team at Bark Box, is that it comes with a miniature dog toy version for your best friend! From the blurb:

Dogs And Their People is the first-ever BarkBook, written by the brains behind our publishing arm, BarkPost! Our dog-obsessed humans have put into words and photographs the depth, spirit, and power of the extraordinary bonds between humans and their pups.

Dog Breed silhouette hand lettered address stamp
image: Paper Peach Shop

I may be old fashioned, but I still love snail mail, and I would adore one of these dog breed address stamps! The creator custom makes each stamp, fitting your address into or around the dog silhouette. While I naturally featured the pug, they have dozens of breeds available and you can contact them if your breed isn’t listed.

Picture Your Pet - President

Know someone whose pet is king of their castle? Or, in this case, commander in chief? With Picture Your Pet, artist Patricia Carlin uses a photo of your pet and places them in a wonderfully illustrated oval office.

Dog Bone Pet Name Necklace

Who wouldn’t want to wear their love for their pet around their neck? These dainty Dog Bone Pet Name necklaces are stylish, pretty, and let you keep your fur baby close to your heart. For multiple pets, I like the idea of layering the different metals and chain lengths.

That’s it for 2017! What did you think of these picks? If you need even more inspiration, check our previous year’s gift guides below!
