OK, you’ve now waited until the very last minute to buy a Christmas gift for the dog lovers on your list. It’s too late to get anything delivered. What should you do??
Just take a deep breath…we’ve got you covered. Here’s an assortment of super gifts for your fellow Fido fan:
Artist Missy Johnson (the force behind the Dogs for the PAWS awareness project that featured portraits of shelter dogs including Irie and Tiki…that’s her portrait, above) can paint a dog portrait of your dog or a portrait as a gift! Starting at $125 for an 8×10-inch portrait, these portraits are beautiful and easy to order. Contact Missy by clicking on the link above; she’ll email you a PDF gift certificate you can wrap and present to the recipient! When they’re ready, they’ll email Missy a photo and she’ll immortalize their dog in a portrait!
We love magazine subscriptions as a gift; you’re reminded of the giver every time an issue comes! Life+Dog features award-winning photography, interviews and information on everything from integrating your dog’s needs into home decor to pet-friendly destinations and trends.
Whether you’re buying a gift for a friend with a new dog or one who wants to walk her dog in a more humane way, check out the Walk In Sync Humane Dog Walking and Training System. This gift is a two-part present: the recipient will receive a Walk In Sync harness in the mail but will also receive instant access to an extensive online video library to help answer training questions. (We’ve got a special 15 percent coupon code for DogTipper readers, too!)
Wondering where to take Fido? This magazine sniffs out the best dog-friendly locations and also spotlights great products, canine-loving celebrities, and much more.
You can order an Amazon gift card in any denomination and the recipient can spend it on all kinds of dog-related purchases, from treats to toys to everything in between.
Donation to Your Favorite Pet Non-Profit
And don’t forget: you can always donate in the recipient’s name to your favorite pet non-profit, whether that’s your local shelter, a rescue, or a larger group. It’s the gift that’s always needed!
