Use this list of 6 Gifts for Pet Owners You Maybe Haven’t Thought Of to kick-start your holiday shopping. I’m here to give you some inspiration for holiday gifts that pet owners, like me, on your list would cherish. As a dog owner, I usually receive the same standard gifts. Fuzzy dog socks, dog-themed mugs, some type of decorative accent claiming that the dog runs things, which I assure you, he does not. Well, maybe a little.

And listen, I truly love these types of gifts as I’m sure the pet owners on your holiday shopping list do. And, of course, we’re thankful for any gift because it means you thought of us. I just want you to bask in the glow of your gift standing out among all the others. I want you to have that little skip in your stomach when you see how the look on your giftee’s face. You know that feeling of realizing you got someone the perfect gift? Holiday shopping can be so tricky so let me help you!

As I’ve mentioned before I absolutely love animals. In particular, a French Bulldog named Walter. My point is that I’ve spent a lifetime receiving animal-themed presents so trust me on these gifts that you maybe haven’t thought of. A little outside the box but not “out there,” things any pet owner would love. No matter how you celebrate during the holidays, I’m quite sure you’ll find at least one item on this list to surprise your sister, friend, coworker, or even your dog walker. The holidays are fast approaching so add them to your cart now to make sure they arrive in time, and you’re not left running somewhere at the last minute to grab a pair of fuzzy socks.

  • Paint Your Pet Experience

    This 2-hour Virtual Paint Your Pet Experience is probably my favorite item on this list and I would probably cry as I rip open the wrapping paper. Seriously, though. No one knows their pet like their owner does so why not give them the chance to express that through art. No artistic ability needed! Splurge on the deluxe version that also includes an art kit…a 36 Watercolor paint set with a pouch, brushes and paper.

  • Personalized Canvas Tote Bag

    As a dog owner I would be over the moon if I received this beautifully designed Heavy-Duty canvas tote bag as a gift. Available in a variety of sizes, you can personalize the bag with a breed and name and even fonts and thread color. Your giftee can use it to throw their everyday belongings in, carry their groceries or as their dog’s getaway or beach bag. Either way this is a holiday gift that keeps on giving.

  • Self-Care Monthly Subscription

    We all know how much love and time pet owners put into caring for their beloved friend. Why not reward them with the luxury of a monthly self-care subscription to let them take care of themselves. Available in 3-months or 6-months subscriptions, each gift arrives beautifully boxed and filled with delightful home-spa products the recipient will love to relax with between dog walks.

  • Dog Park Apron

    I know an apron may seem like a strange holiday gift, but I guarantee the giftee will relish the brightness it brings to their daily kitchen chores. And yes, I consider cooking a chore. This beautiful cotton apron features abstract and colorful illustrated dog breeds of all kinds made to protect their clothing from things like water, cleaners or muddy paws.

  • Cat Mom Bracelet

    Not to worry, I didn’t forget about the cat owners in your life. More specifically, cat moms. I love this trendy Alex & Ani bracelet, a perfect holiday gift or stocking stuffer. Cat moms are special so help them say it loud and proud with an enameled charm. It’s also expandable which means it will fit all the cat moms on your holiday gift list.
