The 55 Best Gifts for Dog Lovers They'll Be Doggone Excited About
Dog loving is a way of life, and if you're a dog lover, you know exactly what we mean. Not only are you loving and giving with a giant heart of gold, but you likely have a few quirky characteristics other dog lovers can relate to. You probably have a designated doggy voice, frequently exchange dog stories with friends, and greet every dog and dog lover in passing (sometimes asking about breed, name, etc.). You've saved your pup's face on every screen saver, celebrate every national dog holiday there is, and only use Instagram to send dog memes. Many of us even go as far as having a dedicated Instagram just for our dogs. And with those puppy dog eyes, it's only natural to want to share their adorable antics with the world. To put it mildly, a dog lover's love knows no bounds.
Even if you're not a dog lover yourself, we're willing to bet that you know a handful of them. With the holidays around the corner, it's time to start thinking about the best gifts for your dog-loving friends—since you're more likely to have one than not.
How We Found the Best Gifts for Dog Lovers
It can be hard to find the perfect gift for such a selfless breed of people (no pun intended!). A dog lover is just as happy with a gift for their dog as they are with a gift for themselves. Ideally, a gift for a dog lover is thoughtful, functional, and fun. Maybe it's something that can be used by their dog, or while they're with their dog, or even for some self-care after a long day at the dog park. This list considers gifts for all types of dog lovers—from the active dog owner to the cozy cuddler. In addition to endlessly scrolling through the pet pages of Amazon and Chewy and taking current dog and gifting trends into consideration, we also tapped into our team of experts to get their top recommendations.
