Gift Guide for the Dog Lover

I'm so excited to bring you guys today's holiday gift guide. This one is for all of the #dogmoms out there (and #dogdads). My husband and I have a German Shepherd named Emma (who is currently in a time out for pooping inside...again), but just like our other kids, we still love her. We'd also really love it if she'd quit going potty inside, but that is beside the point. The point is there is no shame in spoiling your sweet fur baby, especially during the holidays!! And while some of these gifts are items for your dog, some are great gift ideas for the dog lover in your life too.


The Dogist 2018 Wall Calendar by Elias Weiss Friedman author of The Dogist, for example, is the perfect Christmas gift for someone who loves dogs.



These super cute Christmas Plaid Dog Collars by Mr. Bow Tie Boutique would be the perfect holiday gift for doggies and dog owners alike! Whether you have family holiday photos coming up, or you simply want your furry friend to look festive for those…

Back 2 School: Helping Children In Need

We're all excited filling up our children's school supplies and buying them new clothes, but let's take a moment to think about kids and parents who are in need. Here are some simple ways you can help this school year.

1. The Backpack Program with Feed America. A lot of children rely on reduced or free lunch programs for some of their meals. But what about whenever school is out for the summer, weekends and vacations? Click here to see how you can help.

2. Backpack 4 Kids. Families who are struggling financially might not be able to afford supplies and backpacks. At CVS pharmacy, you can purchase a filled backpack to donate, or you can make a monetary donation online. Click here for more info.

3. Donate Classroom Supplies. Did you know that most teachers have to buy their own classroom supplies like dry erase markers, antibacterial wipes and art supplies? This just baffles me! Almost anyone can afford to donate. Whenever you're at the store, spend just a few extra dollars on things like tissue, crayons, etc. and send it to school with your child. There should be a website for your child's school where you can find a more specific list of things they might need.

4. Coats for Kids. As the weather turns cold and children have to be outside at the bus stop and during recess, some children desparately need coats. The National Cleaners Association is teaming up with local dry cleaners to collect and distribute donated coats. Click here for more info.

5. Kids In Need Foundation. The Kids In Need Foundation is another place where you can donate supplies or financial support online. Click here to help.

Some of these events are local, but they all have their own version in your own community, just look around, and you can always give financial donations online. Not everyone can afford to give a lot, but most of us can afford to give at least a little.
