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…

DIY Citrus Ice Cream Bowls


These adorable lemon bowls turn an easy summer dessert into super chic party food. All you need are a few knives and a melon baller or spoon to create these single-serve cups. I love the yellow contrasting with the raspberry sorbet. Though they don't make for the biggest ice cream bowls. If you want larger ones, you could of course use oranges or grapefruits using the same technique.


Step 1: Wash the lemons and slice each one in half. Cut off a small slice on each end so the cups will stand up straight. One bag of lemons is plenty, as one whole lemon produces 2 cups.

Step 2: Use a pairing knife to cut around the inside edge to break up the membrane. This makes it so much easier to clean out the pulp. I found that my bird's beak pairing knife was perfect for the job, but you can use any small sharp knife.

Step: Use a melon baller or spoon to scoop out the pulp and seeds. Don't cut all the way down to the pit on the bottom, because you might end up making a hole in the bottom, though you do need to get as much of the pulp out as possible and make sure the inside is thoroughly dry before you add the ice cream. If you don't, you'll wind up with a watery mess.

Step 3: Just before serving, spoon a scoop into each lemon cup and serve with a small ice cream spoon. Enjoy!
