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…

Sponsored: Transform Your Walls with Giant Sticker Art


My favorite new trend in wall treatments is removable wall art. Decorative wall stickers have been around for a long time. I remember having giant animal stickers on my wall when I was a kid (I'm not going to say how many years ago that was). Though the trend died down for some time, I'm happy to say it's back in full force.

Dorm rooms and apartments can be tough to decorate. Space is often limited and the walls are always white. Wall Stickers add a lot of color and design without taking up any space. You can usually paint in a rental, but then you have to paint it back whenever you move out. That's money out the window each time you paint. I love how wall stickers are removable and reusable. And they're not just for kid's rooms anymore. How great is this Birds on a Wire Wall Decal (pictured above). It really adds a lot to this space without having to paint an entire wall or spend hundreds of dollars on artwork.

Wall stickers are also great in children's rooms. If you have kids you know that you have to rearrange their rooms often, whenever they grow out of furniture and need a larger dresser or bed or whenever brothers and sisters transition in or out of sharing a room. It can be frustrating trying to make pieces of art work in a space with a new layout. Wall stickers are such a quick and easy fix to fill up a big empty wall.

My favorite is a giant tree. It seems to be the most popular on most wall-art sites. They're so whimsical and fun. I've been wanting to get my daughter one for a long time. I also love the chandelier wall stickers.



Of course you can find them in all different sizes and shapes like border art, photo frame stickers, and clusters of shapes like butterflies or stars. You can even get a Christmas Tree Wall Sticker. How's that for saving space!

Phrases and inspirational quotes have also become popular in wall decals, but you can also use alphabet decals to label things in your home. Did you know you can order wall decals in any word or phrase you want? It's perfect for personalizing your home. For example you could order your child's name and place it over their bed. You could also custom order a word like "EAT" very large and in a bright color to use as pop art in your kitchen.

Alphabet decals aren't just for walls either. Label your child's toy boxes, crafts, clothing etc. with letter stickers or use them in a space like your pantry. If you want something more versatile you can even get Chalkboard Walll Stickers.
