Dogs have been man's best friend for thousands of years, with dog domestication traced back to at least 11,000 years. No other species of animal was domesticated before dogs and no other animal has stronger bonds to humans than our four-legged friends. Their loyalty, friendship, and companionship make them wonderful pets that become a real part of the family.

Dog Ice Cube Trays

This is a small but thoughtful gift that is a lovely addition to every drink. The recipient simply needs to fill up the tray with water, freeze it, and soon they'll have incredible ice cubes featuring their favorite dog breeds.

If your recipient has different breeds, be sure to pick up one of each. This is a thoughtful gift that is sure to well appreciated by the recipient.

Dog Face Pillows

This is another wonderful gift that can be personalized to feature the special dog or dogs in someone's life. Dog face pillows are a great way to dress up your home decor and add a special touch.

These pillows are available in a wide range of colors and sizes and the option to personalize them makes them a very impressive gift. Best of all, these pillows will never drool all over your sofa (which can't be said for the real deal!)

Dog Pajamas

If your friend is a bit of a style icon, then they're sure to love being able to dress their dog up in fashionable pajamas. This is a versatile gift as there is a wide range of styles to choose from.

These gifts are especially great in the colder months when dogs might need that extra bit of protection from the elements. Best of all, you can double-up and buy the dog lover a matching set of pajamas!

Hoodie With Kangaroo Pouch

Inspired by those friendly fellows down under, this is a must-have gift for any dog lover that likes to take their dogs out and about with them. Thanks to its large front pouch, dogs of up to around 15 pounds can easily be carried around like baby Joeys. Truly, the height of style!

Ball Launcher

A ball launcher is a present not just for the owner but also for the dog. Ball launchers guarantee countless hours of fun in the park or the garden and are a great way to keep your dog in the best shape.

This high-energy gift makes it easy for an owner to throw a ball again and again without getting tired. Their dog will love you for it!

Custom Dog Socks

Even when you have to go to work, you can take your dog with you by wearing custom dog socks. If you have a friend or family member who is interested both in their dog and has an impeccable fashion sense, then this gift is for them. Personalizing this gift with images of their dog makes it all the more special.


Dog DNA Test

Are you planning to buy a gift for a dog lover who rescued their pet? If so, then a dog DNA test could be an incredible gift to give. Often, owners of rescue dogs struggle to tell exactly what kind of breed their dog is.

With a DNA test, they can finally answer this question, while also providing valuable information relating to genetic traits and health conditions.

Custom Cookie Cutter

If your gift recipient is a whizz in the kitchen and loves making cookies (don't we all?), then a dog-shaped cookie cutter is a great gift. Again, there is the option to add a personal touch and make it a custom cookie cutter with outlines of their dog's face.

Next time you visit their house, there's a good chance that you'll smell cookies baking in the oven!
