Gift giving should be thoughtful, from the heart, maybe even a bit humorous. If the intended gift recipient has (or had) a beloved pet, this can be a great theme to run with, so I've curated a 2022 Best Gifts for Pet Lovers roundup to save you time in your researching! Maybe one of these will jump out at you as a wonderful gift for your spouse, your child, maybe even yourself!! So, let's go!
1. Custom Pet Portrait
Your fur babies rightfully take up a big piece of your heart, so why not give them a dedicated space on your wall with a fun wrapped canvas custom pet portrait!? Mr&MrsPaw has got your back here, quite literally, they even have pet portrait throw pillows! And cell phone cases. And mugs! They have tons of designs to choose from, too. Selecting one is definitely the hardest part! Search by theme: Renaissance (I'm a huge Bridgerton fan, so couldn't help putting our guinea pig's cutie patootie face added to this "Noble" design!!), Film & TV (great for lovers of Harry Potter, Star Wars etc!), Asian Style, and Hobbies & Jobs (Want to see your dog play baseball? Yeah, I thought so!!) Most designs are for a single pet but they do have some especially for groups of 2, 3, or 4 pets!
After I submitted my order, they emailed me with a proof for approval, and I was blown away by how they edited the color and angle to look absolutely PERFECT!!! About a week later the canvas arrived and it's absolutely beautiful, and so hilarious, we just love it!!! Watch our first reactions here, so funny!!!
2. Pet Cam
Being able to check in with your fur baby while you're at work or away for the weekend is priceless, so thankfully there are some great pet cams out there! You love the eufy robot vaccuum (who doesn't), but did you realize they make a pet camera that even dispenses treats - so you can play catch and watch their happy little face catching and nomming up that food in real time! SO FUN!! With a 1080p clarity, smart motion tracking, 2-way audio, a 170 degree wide angle, and 16gb of local storage! Buy the eufy Pet Dog Camera D605 on eufy's website or Amazon.
3. Photo Jewelry
A great way to keep a pet always with you, or honor a pet that's already crossed the rainbow bridge, special moments photo jewelry from mint&lily are beautiful in so many ways. Add your pet's photo to a bracelet or necklace (they currently have 12 gorgeous designs to choose from), hold it up to your eye with light behind it (or put your camera lens up to it) and boom, a beautiful picture of your beloved fur baby appears!! If you haven't already joined the #TikTokMadeMeBuyIt wagon on this one, just give in already and get one!
4. Paw Prints
Pearhead has two framed options for including a photo of your pet along with the pawprint - either imprinted in clay or stamped! Or you could do your pet's pawprints and kids' footprints in stepping stones in the garden!
5. Subscription Box for Pets
It seems there is a subscription box for EVERYTHING these days - from Sake and Japanese snacks (click for our fun YT unboxings on those) to clothes and games, there are some great ones for pets, too! Bark Box is probably the most well known one for dogs. Check out Skip and Scamper for cats, Piggie Box for guinea pigs, Happy Bunny Club for rabbits... you get the idea!!
