Christmas is almost here, and if you’re still trying to complete your shopping for the holidays, it’s likely that you need a few good gift ideas for the people in your life. You may have a perfect present in mind for a few lucky individuals, but what do you give someone who absolutely dotes on his or her dog? It’s likely that one of your friends or relatives is a parent to a fur baby as recent statistics show that there are more dogs than any other kind of pet in British households, and 24% of pet owners own a dog. Instead of giving generic gifts such as a water bowl or a chew toy, let your loved one know that you have his or her pet in mind by giving any of this creative Christmas gift ideas.
A personalized dog tag
Does your friend’s dog’s tag need a serious upgrade? Then give him a personalized dog tag to keep his pet safe at all times. Dog safety and health are important for pet owners, and apart from affording regular visits to the vet, insurance papers to cover pet emergencies, and dog training, a well-designed dog tag can keep a dog safe, especially if your friend’s pet has a tendency to wander. You can pick a stainless steel or enamel dog tag and have it engraved or printed with the dog’s name and the dog owner’s mobile number. Add a smart dog collar, and you’ve got a nice present that will be a hit with the dog owner and pet.
A dog photo session
Are you handy with a camera? Do you create Instagram-ready shots that are the envy of your loved ones? Then give the gift of a doggy photo session to the pet enthusiast in your life. It’s a great present for people who are longing to take great photos of their dog for posterity’s sake. After the photo session, print out some of the greatest shots and frame the best one. Wrap all of these up before giving to your friend or relative.
A pet gadget
There are a lot of new high-tech pet gadgets out there that will allow your loved one to track his pet’s whereabouts or enable him to video chat with his dog. There are even a few gadgets which will allow a pet owner to dispense a treat for his dog even if he’s not at home. Find out what you think your friend or family member needs before choosing a pet gadget to give this Christmas.
A portable or folding dog bed
If your loved one prefers to travel with his pet in tow, then get him a portable or folding dog bed. It can be used for camping trips, beach vacations, and anywhere else they love to go. When choosing a dog bed, make sure that it’s soft, comfortable, and is the right size for your friend or relative’s furry friend. Memory foam is a great option for older dogs.
This Christmas, treat your favourite dog owner to any of these gift ideas. Your loved one and his or her pet will love receiving any of these gifts this holiday season.
