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…

Give: A Pretty Scented Candle


A candle is always a great gift for someone like a friend, a teacher, a neighbor, or any woman on your shopping list. A good-smelling candle...great. A good-smelling candle in pretty packaging with a cute name, like Bath and Body Works "Sweater Weather"...even better! For someone extra-special, it may not be a big enough or romantic enough gift on its own, but a small travel-tin candle makes for a nice stocking stuffer; and a nice larger candle can accompany a perfume or spa gift.

It's also something you can spend just a little for if you're on a budget, though you can splurge if it's for someone special. Something like a Tocca or a Diptyque candle, for example, isn't just a candle; it's the gift of luxury. A box set of luxe votives or a matching candle and scented oil set are both great ways to upgrade a candle gift. Though just $10 - $20 can get you a great gift candle at a store like Kohl's, Bath and Body Works, or Target. To give as a hostess gift or a gift for someone who is on your $20 and under gift budget, you can pair a nice $5-$10 candle with a matching scented oil and reed diffuser, room spray, or scented hand soap.


For the fashion girl, you can't go wrong with a designer set. So many designers these days are collaborating with home accessory brands, bringing a stylish piece of our favorite designers to everyday home accessories, like candles. Pictured: House of Harlow Trio Gift Set via Anthropologie

For someone who loves home decor, pick a decorative candle that can be put on display, or a pretty votive holder set that can be reused.


For the wine lover, pair a bottle of her favorite wine with these fun Rewined candles that are wine-scented and hand-poured into re-purposed wine bottles.


Pair a candle gift with one of these fancy and adorable Spring's Eden decorative match boxes by Illume.

Another way to upgrade any gift is to personalize it. For a personalized candle gift, you can go with something like a monogram candle or one of these zodiac candles.
