Have a friend you’re constantly tagging in corgi memes (ME)? Love someone who would rather spend time with their cat? If you’re looking for gift ideas for animal lovers in your life, you’ve come to the right place! As I mentioned in my Gifts for Travelers guide, I wanted to create a list of gift guides that are quirky and unique enough for every friend in your circle. This was probably my favorite guide to put together because I’m a proud dog mom and aspiring cat mom (which is unlikely because I’m SO allergic to them). I hope these awesome pet-loving products will put a smile on the face of someone you love.
For all who are working to give their pets a better life, this one is for you…
Gift Ideas for Dog Lovers
You might notice something about the dog items featured in this guide. I’m the proud owner of a majestic corgi, Minnie. While this ring is a Corgi motif, but the Tiny Bling Etsy shop makes my heart so happy. It’s almost TOO quirky, but I love it. These make the perfect stocking stuffer or White Elephant gift (that no one will want to give up). On the subject of corgis, this beret is EVERYTHING I’ve ever wanted in life. I also fell in love with this Dog Person sweater.
Gift Ideas for Cat Lovers
My cat loving friends might like this amazing cute ceramic cat mug from Modcloth that’s only $15. The price point makes it an easy win. This mug is great for your cat lady friends or coworkers. Another affordable gift is the Welcome Waggin’ Doormat for only $35. If you’re working with a larger budget, Kate Spade New York’s cat backpack is a quick favorite. It’s very kitschy and cute for the feline lover in your life.
Other Animal Crushes
This wouldn’t be a true Cup of Charisma post without showing love to a charitable brand. Alex and Ani jewelry is artisan-crafted in America with sustainable materials. The brand also has a Charity by Design program, meaning jewelry with the special tag donate a portion of proceeds directly to a nonprofit cause. This two-tone elephant bangle is so gorgeous.
No need to give your office manager the side eye as she lowers the temperature on the thermostat. Perfect for a gift for a coworker, the Smoko Panda USB Handwarmers ($35) make a great gag gift. In all seriousness, anyone who works in an office would totally make use of this.
Last but not least, this $16 sloth mug is a must for the friends who love slow living.
