Best Gifts for Pet Lovers in Your Life

The holidays are coming and many humans on your list may have a furry family at home. If you are wondering what to get the pet lover in your life, don’t fret, we’ve got you covered.

1. Doggy Camera

Keep an eye on Fido with the Furbo Dog Camera.  This is perfect if your pet lover works away from home, attends classes, or just likes to know the mischief that occurs when they’re gone.  Along with the camera, it also has a treat dispenser and barking sensor!

2. Personalized Pet Socks

Rock some socks with your pet’s photo on them!  These are so adorable for pet owners, especially those with a knack for cool socks.  Just snap a photo of the furry guy or gal, upload it, choose a sock color, and you have your funky, totally cool pair of socks — personalized just for your loved one.

3. A pet subscription box

Give the gift that keeps on giving.  Extend the holidays for the next 12 months with a subscription box for dogs or a subscription box for cats.  Not only do these boxes include treats, toys, and other goodies for pets, but also for their owners.

4. Beer Paws Doggy Beer & Treats

Dog Beer and dog treats are perfect for the drinking buddy. This is a local Kansas City company that celebrates dogs and beer drinkers by creating high quality dog beer and treats.  Additionally, they have toys, cat treats, and t-shirts!

They are partner with various local breweries to make the perfect (safe) drinks & snacks for your pup. Make your own owner/pet gift and partner some treats with some local brew. Our favorite combo is the Torn Label Beer Biscuits Peanut Butter Treats (Torn Label is a Kansas City brewery) and some of Torn Label’s Monk & Honey.

5. Personalized Pet Portraits

Get a custom portrait by My Pooch Face!  Everyone needs a little art on their walls, and for pet lovers, this is perfect.  After all, each portrait is hand painted by an artist with strict attention to detail for a perfect end result.  Use our code IMPF19 for 10% off!

6. Create Pet Accessories

Create a piece art at Paint, Glaze & Fire.  Here, you can paint and glaze beautiful pet treat jars, food & water bowls and more for an amazing, one-of-a-kind gift.  You can even make a paw print tile for free when you bring your pet!  Also, click our link for $5 off!

7. Frame a photo of Pet & Owner

You can never go wrong with the classic photo in a frame.  First print a photo, then pop it in an adorable frame, maybe one that is your loved one’s favorite color or with a little paw print on it.  Either way, it makes for great home decor and even greater memories.

8. Personalized Pet Pillows

Speaking of home decor, try for a custom pet pillow.  These are so cute to throw on the sofa or bed of a pet lover.  Plus, your pet can cuddle with themselves now!  You can purchase from a variety of different sizes so there’s a product and price for everyone!

9. Dog Carriers

No, we aren’t kidding with this one, a dog carrier back pack.  Dog owners can travel with their pets with ease  with this hands free carrier.  Go on hikes, walks, or other adventures with your furry friend!  This is recommended for dogs that weigh 15 pounds or less, so please take that into consideration.

10. Backpack Cat Carrier

For those of us cat owners, we know that it’s only a special kind of cat that enjoys walking on a leash.  Instead, cat owners can now carry them from the comfort of their back with this cat carrier backpack!  Finally, a perfect item for cat owners who’ve been longing for a way to bring their cat along with them.

11. Support Animal Shelters

The Great Plains SPCA shop sells clothing, goods and even Rotisserie coffee. I have a t-shirt from them that I just love. It is soft and has held up well. Many of their items tie into the Royals so you can have a shirt highlighting several things you love!

12. Homemade Dog Biscuits

If you’re wanting to make a homemade gift for pet lovers, check out this recipe for yummy dog biscuits:

Darcy’s Dog Biscuits

  • ¾ cup non-fat milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
  • 1 cup flour (you can use brown rice flour if wheat is a concern)
  • 1 ½ cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 tbs baking powder

Run oatmeal in a blender to turn it into a course flour. Set aside.

Mix together the peanut butter, egg and milk. Add flour and baking to make a stiff dough. You want it to be stiff. You may need to use your hands to work the in the last of the flour and adjust the amount as needed.

Roll out on a well-floured surface until about ¼ inch thick. Cut desired shapes out with a cutter and place onto greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes, then flip treats and bake another 15-20 minutes. Cool completely and store in an airtight container or Ziploc bag.
