You've got the Gift-for-those-who-have-everything-Blues.
You're sweating the last minute count-down to gift exchange. You're
tired, the feet ache...and you don't have a clue what to get that
special, but hard-to-buy for gift recipient. Or maybe it's a co-worker.....or
If your giftee is a pet lover....your stress may soon be over!
Pet lovers - be they cat, dog, bunny, fish, reptile or other-pet
enthusiasts - always appreciate special attention given their
non-human family residents.
If you google the net for ideas....special pet gifts abound...
But time is short now, shipping is too late for an online purchase
--and gift ideas at nill...So what to do?!...
Here's a list of special gift ideas that may spark that perfect
gift idea..and send you to the perfect spot to find what you need!
Think about the shops around town that might carry T-shirts, aprons,
robes, scarves, gloves or slippers with pet themes. Many malls
and specialty shops can make up T-shirts and other items with
cat, dog, or other pet motifs while you shop or wait. Sometimes
even from a photo.
How about some cat socks or a hat with a dog or cat print? Or
go to a local fabric shop, buy some appropriate pet-motif appliques
and apply them yourself to a blank item. Or wrap them up with
the gift article for the craft lover in your life. Look for zipper
pulls with that special pet motif and attach it to a nice sweater
or jacket for your giftee.
Many pet lovers take to home deco items oriented to their favorite
pet. Cat and dog lamps, along with turtles and other birds, can
lend a special glow and ambience in a room. Night lites with pet
design are also a special nuance and welcome household assist.
Welcome mats, area rugs, afghans and throws are also practical
items that offer personality to the household. Cat clocks with
swinging pendulum tails, light switch plates and ceiling light
pulls are also available with animal figures for the pet lovers
in your life. You may even find some drawer pulls with that favorite
pet at a local home improvement or department store. And for the
bath, keep your eye out for some cute pet print shower curtains
and towels - not to mention pet-shaped soap and pet emblazoned
For the collector, crystal cat or dog figurines...sometimes
in various breeds can be found in specialty shops. Resin, ceramic
and plaster figurines are also often in stock in some gift and
outdoor shops. Pet art and posters also can be popular gifts.
Think about a door plaque with cats or dogs on a welcome sign.
Have one chiseled in wood in a specialty mall booth that are available
during the holiday season. Add house numbers to signage with that
favorite pet figure adorning it, and get some wide smiles from
your gift recipient. A garden statue of that favorite pet will
certainly delight the gardener as well!
Look for necklaces, pendants, bracelets and watches, earrings
and ring holders. Jewelry boxes embellished with that favorite
cat or dog can house that special jewelry item as well.. Or apply
some of those appliques you bought at the fabric shop to a plain
For those kitchen-dwelling homo sapiens on your list, think about
salt and pepper shakers, pet embellished dishes, cookie jars and
glassware. Curtains, dish towels, rugs, pot holders, spoon rests
and special style cake moulds are favored items. For the wine
connoisseur, check out a department store houseware section for
decanters or wine bottle stoppers with that favorite pet atop.
Watch for specialty candles with the pet of choice stamped into
the candle or carved in design. Candle holders can also be found
with pet patterns that allow the candle glow to show through.
For book lovers there are book markers, totes and book bags. Purses,
cell phone covers, sunglasses, luggage and luggage tags, calendars,
photo enlargements, photo frames and wind chimes are some other
practical, whimsical and welcome gifts for pet lovers. Puzzles
with a pet design can also often be found at holiday time.
For a multi-pet household, consider offering a gift certificate
for health care with the gift recipient's vet, or make up a package
with specialty treats (make them wholesome - read labels). Add
a bag or two of their regular fare, premium canned foods and/or
pet toys. Throw in a good cat flea comb, special dog or cat brushes
and a shiny, rhinestone-studded collar.(Make sure it is a break-away
kind for the safety of the pet!)
Give a gift that keeps on giving.Iinformation, education! Wrap
up a book or reference material on pet health and care or a home
study course that will both teach priceless skills and knowledge
and serve as a valuable reference for years and years to come,
helping to keep those cherished pets healthy and happy for years
more of love and companionship.
Cat furniture, hide-a-ways, plush dog and cat beds, or cuddly,
warm cat or dog blankets will have both human and pet recipient
purring (or howling..) with delight! Try some special rocks or
heat lamps for those prized reptiles or faux caves and plants
for those aquarium enthusiasts, along with some healthy feed...
all appreci- -ated gifts by any pet guardian.
Hopefully, these last minute gift ideas have helped to spark your
own idea bank...and you'll know now just where to go to find those
perfect last minute items for that special gift - that will make
it look like you've shopped all season with a perfect plan!
