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…

The Weekend IT List



1. Carve a Pumpkin. It's the weekend before Halloween! I assume you've already taken a trip to the pumpkin patch. Time to carve your Jack-O-Lanterns, or decorate a pumpkin. You can find tips on pumpkin carving on my Halloween blog. For a wealth of free Jack-O-Lantern printables, visit pumpkinmasters.com.

2. Pick a Last-Minute Halloween Costume. I love this Addam's Family Wednesday Costume. It's all about using what you already have in your closet. I think I may just snag this idea! I've got the hair. If you don't over think it and focus on something from everyday life or a movie character who basically wears normal clothes, you can come up with something using clothes you already have. Have a skirt suit? Add on a neck scarf, and you're a stewardess. Wear head-to-toe khaki, and you're on safari.


3. Go on a Leaf Hunt. The leaves are turning. Before winter sets in, head out with the kids and a basket to collect leaves, twigs, and pine cones for a weekend fall craft. Here's an easy pine cone craft I shared this week.


4. Serve Up Something Spooky. One of my favorite Halloween treats I've ever made were these Killer Cupcakes I put on the Halloween Blog last year. They're so fun for an October bash, and they're actually so easy. You can even start with store-bought mini cupcakes and simply top with red gel icing and the premade Wilton edible sugar knives.


5. Host a Scary Movie Night. Didn't get that Halloween party planned in time? Host a last-minute scary movie night! All you need to set the mood are candles and low-lighting and some quick store-bought Halloween treats. There are several spooky movies recently out on DVD like World War Z and The Conjuring (both highly recommended). For more scary movie ideas, you can check out my guide on the Top 200 Horror Films.
