Gifts for Dog Lovers … it’s personal

Ok, I’ll admit I’m one of ‘these people.’ – Dog Lovers!

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while or follow me on social media, you know that I am dog-obsessed.

Gifts for Dog Lovers - written by a dog lover

And consider myself incredibly lucky because our dog Riley is just … well, he’s the best, cutest, and smartest dog – ever. And I understand you might not agree. 🙂 

Since Riley is my first dog, I had no idea what to expect. I didn’t even know that getting gifts for dog lovers was a thing. Dog lovers have the dog … isn’t that enough?

Then Riley came into our lives, and the fur frenzy began. And I unashamedly admit that I have purchased a lot of ‘dog-related’ items.

And because my dog-owning friends are similarly ‘obsessed,’ I know I am not alone. So, if you have people like my friends and me, in your circle, here are some great gift ideas for dog lovers.

Great Gift Ideas for Dog Lovers

By the way, dog lovers will love you if you think their dog is the best. 😉  … and in Riley’s case, it would be true. He the best!!

If you have a dog, you know how amazing they are and you’ll love these gifts for dog lovers.

Pssst, I won’t tell if you’ll get some of these dog lover gifts for yourself.

Dog Shaped Candy Mold 

This might just be the perfect gift for your dog-loving baker friend or family member. My friend Emma bakes a lot of dog treats for her two pooches (and adorable Yorkie pair). She would surely put this mold to good use.

And if your dog’s a picky eater … well, you know what happens, treats go bad. This treat jar is attractive and almost air-tight.

PS: Full Confession Friday. I just bought an advent calendar from Trader Joe’s  – for our dog Riley. I couldn’t find the Trader Joe’s advent calendar online, but you can check out this treat-filled advent calendar from Amazon. Your pooch will love you – even more!

PPS: Riley can be a picky eater at times. He hated the Trader Joe’s calendar treats. After his outright refusal I gave the dog treat advent calendar to my friend Emma. And her two pooches loved it!
