Do you have a dog lover in your life? Dog lovers can actually be super easy to shop for because you can pick up anything dog-related and they’ll love it.

But that makes shopping for dog lovers difficult because it doesn’t really narrow it down at all. So I’m here to help. I put together a list of the 10+ Best Gifts For Dog Lovers.

There’s not a dog on the list, which is probably what dog lovers hope for every birthday or holiday.

Don’t get them a dog.

Definitely skip that.

Trust me.

Winer Dogs Wine Markers

Go back. Read the name of this gift again. I promise, the name isn’t inappropriate. It just looks that way.

Now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk about how these Winer Dogs Wine Markers are absolutely perfect for anyone who loves wine and dachshunds.

The wine markers are super practical because they sit on the bottom of a stemmed wine glass to assure that drinks don’t get mixed up. And they’re super fun and adorable because what dog lover wouldn’t want a tiny sleeping pup at the base of their glass?

And then, of course, the play on words is brilliant.

Custom Pet Mug Using Pet Photo.

Custom Pet Mug With Pet Photo

Personalized gifts are my favorite. They really make it feel like you tried to get something that’s exactly unique to your gift recipient.

And I know for sure your dog lover would love this Custom Pet Mug With Pet Photo.

You send in a photo of the dog, and its name, and it’s preserved forever on the sweetest coffee mug.

Blue Q Zipper Pouch that says People I Want to Meet: Dogs.

People I Want to Meet: 1. Dogs Zipper Pouch

Dog people love joking that they’re dog people and not people people. And really, can you blame them? I don’t really know any people who are people people anymore.

So this People I Want to Meet: 1. Dogs Zipper Pouch is perfect. Dog lovers can carry it around when they’re near people — and not in the mood to be social.

Sorry. Just came for the dogs.

Dog Mom AF Crewneck Sweatshirt.

Dog Mom Sweatshirt

This Dog Mom Sweatshirt is my absolute favorite item on the whole list. It looks so comfortable and cozy. It’s basically triple-digit degrees here in North Carolina, and I’m still like, “Oh I’d love this sweatshirt.”

And I’m not even a dog mom. So imagine how much actual dog moms will love this.

Plus, this Dog Mom sweatshirt gives strangers a fact about you, so if they want to make conversation, asking about your dog is a good ice breaker.

Angelice Home Cute Dog Mug.

Cute Little Dog Mug

I love cute things, so of course, this adorable Cute Little Dog Mug had to make the list.

That’s its name. It says Cute Little Dog on the mug.

What’s great about this Cute Little Dog mug is it comes with a top so if your dog lover is drinking her morning coffee and the dog needs to run out right then for a walk, she can put the top on and come back to a hot cup.

It has a spoon to stir too, and when the spoon is sticking out, it’s a paw print waving back at your dog lover (or signaling for help because it’s drowning. It depends if you’re a glass half full kind of person. And for the drowning dog’s sake, I hope it’s a half empty glass).

"Dogs Welcome People Tolerated" Sign.

“Dogs Welcome People Tolerated” Sign

Dog people really love dogs. Not people. So if the items above didn’t prove that, this “Dogs Welcome People Tolerated” sign is perfect for your friend’s mantle.

It blends in with any décor too, so your friend will definitely display it.

Just warn them not to display it near water. So not on a windowsill over a kitchen sink. We had a similarly-made sign. It accidentally got spilled on and the whole thing started coming apart.

Willow Tree Angel of Friendship.

Willow Tree Angel of Friendship

So many items on this list are funny or sarcastic, so I had to add a sweetest gift for dog lovers: the Willow Tree Angel of Friendship.

It sweetly depicts the love between and owner and her dog, and that is just beautiful. This figurine is often gifted to an owner after her dog has died, which is really sad. But if you gift it when the dog is still alive, it’ll have such a different meaning.

Custom Pet Pillow.

Custom Pet Pillow

If your dog lover wants to snuggle, but his or her dog doesn’t want to, this Custom Pet Pillow is the perfect compromise. It’s a pillow made from a photo of their dog.

You can choose the pillow to be between 6 inches and 24 inches and it can be a single- or double-sided print.

"I'll Be Watching You" Towel.

“I’ll Be Watching You” Towel

Dogs spend so much of their time under you, wagging their tails, waiting for you to drop something. When you’re eating, forget about personal space. But when you’re cooking, dogs are there too.

Watching. Wagging. Waiting.

So this “I’ll Be Watching You” Towel is perfect. It’s a play on the Police song (the stalker song that so many people used as a wedding song). The towel reads: Every meal you make, every bite you take, I’ll be watching you.

Hysterical. And true.

Socks that say, "I can't get up right now" and "the dog is on my lap".

The Dog Is On My Lap Socks

Dogs love to snuggle. And people who love dogs love to use that dog as an excuse for why they can’t do things. They were late because they had to walk the dog. They have to leave early because the dog needs to be fed.

Or, as these The Dog Is On My Lap socks say, they can’t get up because the dog is on their lap.

So, while the dog lover has her feet up, how about you be a dear and fill her wine glass, please and thank you.

Dog Shaped Bottle Opener.

Fetch Bottle Opener

If you know a dog lover who drinks beer and you don’t buy him this Fetch Bottle Opener this holiday season, you really dropped the ball.

The dog’s mouth is the actual bottle opener, and when you open a beer bottle with this Fetch Bottle Opener, the bottle cap sits in the dog’s mouth and looks like a frisbee.

This is the best gift on this entire list and I honestly don’t know why I didn’t lead with it.

Paw Shaped Coasters

We have so many coasters in this house, but Pete’s favorite are the pizza slice coasters I got him because he loves pizza.

So your dog lover’s favorite coasters — even if he or she already has some — will be these Paw Print Coasters. They have a non-skid and scratch resistant bottom, so they’re perfect for home use.
