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…

An Ornament-Pick Gift Topper DIY


One of my favorite ways to dress up a present is to use an ornament pick as a gift topper. Specified gift toppers in the gift wrapping section can cost up to $5 for just one little topper. But during the holidays, there are so many ways to get the same look with less money. For example, you could use yarn to make your own pom pom topper, or you could use a beautiful ornament from the dollar store. My favorite way is with an ornament pick (pictured above). With a decorative ornament pick or a Christmas floral spray, you can use a plain white box. This also works really well for dressing up treat boxes. For the holidays I always stock up on plain white gift boxes, tin-tie bakery bags, floral holiday picks, and matching wire ribbon. The wire ribbon is easier to manipulate into a large bow that you can shape perfectly around the pick. You can find these Christmas picks online, at stores like Target and Wal-Mart, the dollar store, and the craft store.

Start by taking the ribbon flat over the top of the box and down two opposite sides all the way to the bottom. When you get to the bottom with the ribbon, twist it in the middle and take it up and over the other two sides, creating a cross over the bottom. When you get to the top, tie it into a bow. (Measure approximately how much you'll need before you start so you can pre-cut the ribbon.) Then stick the floral pick or ornament pick down through the middle of the bow and bend so that you can hide the pick part underneath the ribbon.

  1. I suspect if I tried to wrap anything, it would look like a gang of monkeys had done the job.
