2018 Gift Guide for Dog Lovers

From holidays to birthdays, many Americans will spend hundreds of dollars on gifts throughout this year. Finding the perfect gift for a friend, family member, or loved one is indeed a high priority for most of us. If the person you’re shopping for happens to be a dog owner or someone who loves pets, a pet-themed gift might make your gift-giving job an easier one. Whether you’re making your wish list or shopping for a fellow dog lover, here are six items you don’t want to live without.  

GPS Dog Tracker

These days, there are many technological advances available to help dog lovers care for their four-legged companions. One tech-savvy gift for dog owners is a GPS dog tracker, which uses modern technology to ensure the safety of man’s best friend. GPS dog trackers help conscientious dog owners keep an eye on their pets, track down a missing dog, and keep their dogs safe and sound - even when their owners are not around.  

Dog Toy Bin

Any dog owner knows that toys are a dog’s best friend. Rather than let toys pile up all over the house, a cute bin helps stash them all away. Ellen DeGeneres makes an especially adorable storage basket that’s available in various sizes and colors. With a bin that reads, “I never met a toy I didn’t bite,” it’s funny, stylish, and functional.  

Custom Pet Pillow

Who doesn’t like snuggling up next to their dog? A custom pet pillow can be just the ticket. This gift option is fun, light-hearted, and a great addition to any room. Custom pet pillows are also a wonderful way to remember pets who have passed. This is a beautiful, personalized gift that any sentimental pet owner will surely cherish for years to come.

Lint Roller

Unless they own a hypoallergenic breed, most dog owners are probably used to seeing and wearing a lot of dog hair. When you’re on the go, taking care of unsightly dog hair isn’t exactly the easiest. It’s inconvenient toting around a lint roller everywhere. Luckily, there’s now a lint roller designed for travel in mind — the Flint. What makes the Flint special is that it comes with an enclosure, which prevents the roller’s sticky pages from attaching to everything in your bag. It’s also small enough to carry wherever, making it the perfect travel companion to eliminate dog hair from your look.

Insulated Dog Jacket

Winters can get cold, depending upon where you live. Just like humans, dogs get cold during the winter, too. A warm coat, such as a fleece coat, can help a pooch handle those chilly temperatures. Made with 50 percent recycled synthetic insulation and a reflective trim, Ruffwear’s Quinzee is the perfect coat to keep your dog snug and safe.

Pet Candle

While any candle can technically mask the smell of wet dog, along with several other unwanted pet odors, there’s one particular line of pet candles that does it better for multiple reasons. Rescued Wine pet candles are nontoxic and environmentally friendly, and they support a good cause. Unlike other candles that are made with synthetic oils and paraffin wax, which is a petroleum byproduct, Rescued Wine products are made with soy wax and essential oils. If you’re not familiar with these kinds of candles, it’s important to note that typical candles release carcinogenic soot when they’re burned, whereas Rescued Wine pet candles and other soy-based candles don’t. Simply put: With these pet candles, you’re not only going to make your home smell nice, but you’re also going to keep your family’s health a top priority too.

Rescued Wine pet candles are available in assorted wine and beverage scents and are beautifully displayed in repurposed glass that comes from wine bottles. In addition, a portion of each sale goes to animal rescue groups.
 

Quick Drying Bathrobe

Cotton robes are a thing of the past now that BBEART Pet Clothes has a super-absorbent and fast-drying robe. This luxury bathrobe made from a premium-quality microfiber holds more water than other cotton robes, allowing your dog to dry in way less time compared to the usual air dry.

As you can see, modern technology has given pet owners and dog lovers more gift options than ever before. From eco-friendly candles to GPS dog trackers, there are countless gift ideas in this article for every pet owner. With so many great gifts to consider, you’re sure to have something awesome to put under the tree, whether for yourself or someone else. Happy holidays to you!
