On this planet, you get to meet two kinds of people. You have the pet lovers who live for their furry friends, and then there’s everyone else. Pet lovers are in a whole different league. Unlike others, their phones are always filled with their pet’s pictures, spend their day-offs cuddling with them, and use at least half of their money to shop for pet stuff.
If you know someone who is a pet lover, they would most likely appreciate getting a gift that puts a spotlight on their pet. However, this can be a challenge, especially when you don’t have much idea about their pet.
Hence, this article aims to present you with some gift ideas you can wrap for the pet lovers in your life. From pet toys, pet-themed clothing, to tasty treats—here are twelve gift ideas that both pets and pet lovers will surely appreciate:
1. Customized Pet Socks
Most pet lovers often revolve their time around their dog or cat. Giving them a gift that shows off their dog or cat’s face is something they definitely won’t mind. So, consider giving them their very own customized pet socks printed with their dog or cat’s face all over them. Now they’ll have these cute pair of pet socks they can wear when cuddling with their pets. They can also show their love for their pets from head to toe.
2. Plush Cuddle Toy
For pet lovers who can’t get enough of their pet’s cuteness and huggable fur, now’s the perfect time to give them something they can bring to bed (or literally anywhere). You can get them plush cats or cuddle dog toys. These lifelike plush toys will be a perfect addition to their bedroom, living room, or even their car if they want to bring something that represents their pet.
3. Customized Pet Portrait
Your friend has probably shown you hundreds of pet pictures from their phone. Maybe they’ve also printed some of them and put them into frames. But one thing they probably don’t have yet is a painted portrait of their pet. Impress your pet lover friend by surprising them with a customized pet paint portrait, immortalizing their beloved pet’s face.
4. Pet Window Hammock
If your friend’s got a small pet (e.g., cats or small dog breeds) they often keep indoors, this gift may be a perfect addition to their pet’s furniture. This pet window hammock can be attached to their glass windows through suction cups. Their small dog or cat can then climb into the window hammock and watch the outdoor view.
5. Pet Candles
These pet-inspired candles will surely blend well with your pet lover friend’s home. You can choose between cat soy candles or dog candles inspired by different dog breeds. Just make sure to pick something that fits the type of pet they have.
6. Pet Travel Bag
For pet lovers who always love traveling with their pets, a pet travel bag is probably the most functional gift you can give them. You can include more stuff inside for more surprises like portable food bowls, poop-bag dispensers, and portable pet toys.
7. Pet-And-Parent Matching Shirts
Who says matching shirts are only for dating couples? Pets and their pet owners can also have matching costumes.

Even if their dogs are good swimmers, a pet life jacket will still be required if they want to take their pets on boat trips or have senior pets who need extra support when swimming. Many pet life jackets also feature a top handle so your friend can easily lift their pet out of the water when needed.
