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…

Easy DIY Princess Christmas Ornaments


These DIY princess christmas ornaments are so easy to make, and they each cost under $1.00. I simply used prepainted wooden cutouts from the craft store. You can get them unpainted for a Christmas craft project for kids, or you can purchase them prepainted like the ones I used. These wooden cutouts come in so many different styles and colors, like sailboats, animals, hearts and more. Using wooden cutouts to creat DIY ornament makes it easy to create a themed tree for a child's room.

Supplies Needed:

*painted wooden cutouts

*hot glue gun

*matching ribbon



Instructions:

Use your hot glue gun to place a generous amout (about half a dime size) of glue to the back of the wooden cutout at the top center. Cut the ribbon into 6-inch strips. Taking both end together, pull the ribbon into a loop then place the ends down onto the hot glue. Use a pen or something to press the ribbon down into the glue then top the ribbon with aother dot of hot glue. Leave ornament upside down for a few minutes to dry completely. The glue dries quickly, so you need to do one ornament at a time.



It's that easy. You can make these in any number of styles and color schemes. For more of a DIY keepsake ornament or simply for a fun Christmas craft, you can get these wooden cut-outs unfinished and let your child paint them his or herself before you attach the ribbon.
