I’ve mentioned that we have hopes to get a dog in the future, so I have dogs on my mind, and I couldn’t help myself with this gift guide for pets! Gift these things to a pet or pet owner!

These hand-stamped tags are freaking cute. You can, of course, customize them with your pet’s name and even fit a phone number and chip info on the back.

If you’re going to the dog park or a walk around the neighborhood, you’ve gotta be prepped with treats and a way to clean up “messes.” This pouch is made of recycled water bottles, can be worn as a crossbody or fanny pack, and has space for treats and a built-in poop bag dispenser. Plus, it’s cute!

A personalized doggy bed with the doggy’s name on it? It doesn’t get any cuter than this. The blue gingham is especially adorable.

This brand seems so reputable and safe for pets, with treats made with human-grade, sustainable ingredients, sure to make any dog “sit.”

A squeaky nutcracker “bone” toy for Christmas?? Are you kidding me?

I know not every dog likes “clothes,” but I really hope our future dog does because this is cuuuute. A fleece jacket with a little pouch on the back?? My heart.

Hold me back from buying all four colors of this quilted dog jacket when we don’t even have a dog! It’s just too adorable.

An interactive toy and treat to keep your dog entertained and occupied for a bit.

What dog doesn’t love playing fetch? These lavender tennis balls are designed with pets in mind and come in a mesh pouch for storage.

This enamel pet food storage & bowl set is so adorable I wouldn’t mind at all having it out on display. The name is customizable, and the set includes a storage bin and bowls with a matching scoop.

Sometimes dogs need a little help pacing themselves with their food, and this bowl is designed to slow their feeding. Holds up to two cups of dog food and comes in a bunch of colors.

12. Resident Dog $40

This is more so for the pet owner and home lover! A stunning coffee table book filled with charming dogs and the charming homes they live in.

We had a Furbo device with Willow and loved it. It’s a dog camera, viewable from the app, and it also tosses treats for your dog when you’re away from home! Will certainly be using this again!

A tartan and leather dog collar with brass detailing? Yes, please. Sure to make any pet parents and pets happy.

You know and love them for their great-smelling hair products, but have you tried their pet shampoo? It’s vegan, moisturizing, and has the same fragrance you know and love.

I don’t know much about cats, but I think if I were a cat, this mouse toy sure looks fun.

A reader recently asked me if I’m starting to fully embrace traditional style and whether we still consider our house to be a “modern Colonial” and why. It was a really great question and so timely — I had really just been thinking about my approach to this home and how my style has changed […]
