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…

5 Essentials for Chic Outdoor Entertaining


Whether you enjoy grilling by the pool or a casual evening roasting marshmallows around a fire pit, it's the perfect time to take your entertaining outdoors. Here are some great patio finds to get you inspired for your outdoor parties this season. Pictured Above >

1. Outdoor Seating - I'd love a beautiful outdoor dining set for summer dinner parties, (pictured below) but for lounging, I also love the idea of an outdoor loveseat with a coffee table and side chairs, if you have a large patio space of course. For poolside seating, try some wicker chaise lounge chairs.

2. Hanging Lights - For outdoor entertaining at night, string lights make everything so much more beautiful. I love how so many of the local restaurant patios in Tulsa decorate with cafe lights. You can string them up between tree or under a patio cover. If you have a yard but not a clearly defined entertaining area, you can use these lights to define a space where you want to entertain. Pictured: weatherproof globe string lights. Candle light is so pretty for outdoor entertaining as well. Try some big lantern candle holders to add to the decor of your patio.

3. Cold Drinks - You have to keep the cold drinks coming when you're entertaining outdoors. And while yes, a cooler full of beers would suffice, you can take it up a notch with a pretty pitcher full of sangria or something like a fruit-infused tea or lemonade.

4. A Place in the Shade - I don't know how it is where you live, but I live in Oklahoma, and when it's hot, it's hot! And when the skies are clear, there isn't a cloud in sight and the sun beats down hard. Shade is a must for keeping cool. If you don't have a covered patio, try a large umbrella.

5. Fun Serving Ware - From cute disposable products to colorful place settings and large serving dishes, you can add so much color and extra decor to your outdoor space. These mason jar glasses are perfect for serving summer drinks.
