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…

Krisztina's Blog: Just Ignore the Frantic People


It's the week of Christmas! It has come so quickly just as it does every year, and I just wanted to remind you guys to not get sucked into the last-minute panic. Affirm to yourself that you "are calm" and that you "don't need to do anything else", well that is of course unless you really do still have shopping to do like me. If that is the case, affirm that you "will have time and will get it done". I know it seems cheesy, guys, but positive self talk is a huge tool in keeping a positive and calm attitude. And words have so much power over our moods. Run around telling yourself, "I have so much to do. I don't have enough time," and you're likely to get so stressed and exhausted that you probably won't have time. When it's down to the wire, you simply have to assess what your priorities are and what you actually do have time for. Then forget about the rest! Who cares?! If my kids don't get to make both sugar cookies and a gingerbread house this week, are they going to be disappointed? No. Is it going to ruin Christmas? No! But what will ruin it for me and my family is if I'm running around like a crazy person all stressed out and complaining about the things I don't have time for.
