Unique Gifts for Dog Lovers and Their Furry Friend

It’s always a dog’s world for those who have furry four-legged friends. In fact, most dog people are a particular breed themselves! Gifts for walking the dog like a new collar and lead or a snuggly coat are always perfect gifts for dog lovers. But, let’s face it, dogs would walk on an old rope, so why not treat your pup-obsessed human instead? Giving wag-tastic dog lover gifts for him or her is easy. Gifting something creative like a leather smart bag or a trendy animal-themed backpack to carry essentials and a slim reusable water bottle is always useful. Personal gifts for dog lovers are unexpected items that can be used repeatedly.

Caring Condolence Gifts For Loss Of A Pet


Pets are so very much part of our lives, but their life span is shorter than ours, and dealing with their loss is hard. We all know grieving takes time but, if a friend has recently lost a pet, showing an understanding of their grief means a lot. A thoughtful pet condolence gift at this time shows you totally get it.  


One lovely gift for the loss of a pet dog or cat is a photo frame with a cute picture of the pet or a family photo. Another gift idea for someone who has lost a pet is to engrave its name or initials on a beautiful personal piece of jewellery, a pendant necklace, bracelet or cuff links. Make a cosy blanket or cushion using their pet’s image or gift them a gorgeous memory box to store things they choose to keep in their pet’s memory. 


Along with giving gifts of comfort, a gift basket is a perfect way to show you’re there for your loved one. You can make it yourself and include items that memorialise their pet or things that will really cheer them up. Sending some favourite flowers or a sympathy gift hamper as a condolence message is a personal acknowledgement sure to be is appreciated.
