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…

Pumpkin Spice French Toast


This recipe is so easy. I love it because it's naturally dairy-free, and you could easily make it gluten-free by swapping out the bread. It's also a quick fix if you're craving a pumpkin-flavored treat. My girls and I like to make pancakes for our weekend brunches, but this is our new favorite. We made it a few times, adding more pumpkin each time. Tonight (yes, we had it for dinner) we added extra pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. Everyone agreed it was the best thus far. Serve it up for a cozy fall brunch or for an easy holiday breakfast.

I used 9 slices of plain white sandwich bread, and the pumpkin mixture wound up being just enough; if you want to make more slices or plan to use large Texas toast and want to let it soak a little, you may want to increase the quantities a bit.

Ingredients
  • 8-9 slices of white sandwich bread
  • 3/4 c canned pumpkin puree
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1&1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • butter or oil for coating the griddle

Instructions

Simply blend all the ingredients (other than the bread of course) and dip the bread in the mixture, coating each side.

Coat the griddle and heat it to 350 degrees, then cook each side about 5 minutes or until golden brown. That's it!

Pile on the fixings for a holiday brunch; set out an array of syrups, powdered sugar, cinnamon, whipped cream, and nuts.
