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…

Holiday Appetizer: Blue Cheese & Fig Jam on Butter-Round Crackers

 

These blue cheese and fig jam appetizers are so delicious and addictive, most important they're so incredibly easy to make. If you're entertaining for the holidays, it helps to have a few appetizers you can assemble at the last minute. You can simply set out a cheese and cracker tray, but if you need a last-minute appetizer platter that looks (and tastes) amazing, try these Blue Cheese & Fig Jam appetizers. All you need are butter-round crackers, fig jam, and a small container of crumbled blue cheese. (You can use sliced blue cheese if you prefer). Either way, a small container of both the cheese and jam will go a long way, so you'll have more than enough.

Take one cracker at a time and use a butter knife to spread the fig jam on first, then place the cracker on your serving platter and use a small spoon to top the jam with about a teaspoon of blue cheese.

*Tip: Try variations of the same recipe using the formula of cracker + jam + cheese. Other tasty combinations I love include apple jelly with smoked gouda, raspberry jam with ricotta, and red current jam with brie. You can find more cheese pairing ideas in this jam and cheese pairing guide.

  1. I've never tasted blue cheese or fig, so I can't say what I'd think of them...
