Sometimes it’s just too easy to buy gifts for the dog lover in your life with all the treats and toys available these days. So how do you find a stand-out gift to buy the totally obsessed dog lover this holiday season? We gotcha. Here are 5 unique gift ideas that will knock the socks off any puppy parent you know.
1. Pet Assure
This is the most important gift you could ever give a pet parent. Pet Assure is a veterinary discount plan that will save your dog lover some serious loot on vet visits. Members of Pet Assure simply show their enrollment card when they visit the doggy doctor and save. It’s also good for discounts on merchandise.
2. Vans X ASPCA Classic Slip-On
Does your friend need a way to broadcast their dog parent pride that’s both comfortable and stylish? Try these fresh kicks by Vans, made in collaboration with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. These Classic Slip-Ons will show the world how important animal rescue is to those who wear them.
3. Tattoo Parlor Gift Certificate
Just a reminder, this gift is for the dog lover, NOT the dog. If they’ve ever wanted to get a memento of the time spent with their canine companion, check your local listings to find a tattoo parlor offering gift certificates, or make your own certificate with crayons and take them down to the inkwell yourself. After all, their dog is so great they’ll want to remember them FUREVER! (For tattoo inspiration, visit this post!)
If your dog-obsessed human isn’t allowed to bring their pup to work, you might want to get your dog lover a PetChatz. This allows them to check on their pooch while they punch the clock. PetChatz plugs directly into the wall and features a small screen so they can video call their dog from computer or phone. The PetChatz monitor also releases treats at your command so pets can be rewarded from miles away.
5. A Commissioned Painting of Their Pooch
At Pet Portraits, Melanie and Nicholas specialize in rendering painted or drawn images of pup ruvers’ most beloved animals. If you send them a sharp photo of your dog lover’s pup, they will produce a pencil or oil portrait of Scruffy. Check on Etsy to find different styles and prices.
