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…

Travel Diaries: A Tour Through Downtown Frederick, Maryland


I post often about Washington, DC and all of the other historic places I live near, but I'm just a few minutes from one of my favorite city destinations. Downtown Frederick, MD is home to boutiques, nationally renowned restaurants and a river walk. The fresh flowers, old brick buildings, and bustling cafes make it the perfect place to park and walk around on a Saturday afternoon. The shop owners are all friendly, and most of them even allow pets if you want to do your window shopping with a four-legged friend.


Window shopping is always better with friends. That's me (on the right) and my best bud Jessica (left) dating back to middle school. I am so lucky to have had her in my life for so long and to now be living in the same state despite the fact that we're both so far from home.


The first and most important stop downtown is always Zoe's chocolate. You can pick up a salted caramel and even a chocolate mustache pop.


You have to teach them when they're young that grocery-store chocolate is not the good stuff. The good stuff is handmade on a marble slab in a boutique chocolate shop.


Old red brick, painted window shutters, and flowers in planter boxes line the streets. It's an ideal place to take photos of the kids.


The river walk in downtown Frederick is home to more cafes and hosts summer concerts and arts & crafts festivals. During some city festivals, they even host canoe and paddle-boat rides.

I hope you enjoyed a tour of my town. Please take a moment to visit Shereen Travel Cheap for my DC travel guide 48 Fun Hours on a Budget In Washington D.C.

    1. That's great!:) I'm always wondering which bloggers live in the area. It would be nice to actually meet some in person. Maryland is the best, isn't it?
