2013 Gift Guide: Pets

2013 Gift Guide: Pets
Every year, it seems as though my pet-related shopping list gets longer. Whether I’m shopping for my pup, Mr. Harvey, for a friend’s pet, or for the animal-lovers in my life, I’ve got a list to satisfy them all and I’m sharing a few favorites with you today. In order to keep this list to a reasonable length, I tried to find a little something for the dog, cat and rabbit fans on your list, but I do know that there are a bevy of other pet-related goodies out there. I hope you’ll find something special for animal lovers in your life! —Stephanie

2013 Gift Guide: Pets

As of late, I’ve become extremely fascinated with pet dwellings and carriers. There are so many interesting designs out there right now, making it easy to find something for every style. While many of these are a bit too pricey for me, I thought it would be fun to include some den options for you to take a look at and maybe gift to a lucky pet in your life.

    Looks like your numbers are a bit mixed up, 15 on the graphic is 14 in the content with the link.

    1. Stephanie says:

      Thanks for catching that, George! Should be updated now!

  2. Brittany says:

    I ordered that hanging cat thing. Love this gift guide.

  3. Stac says:

    6, 7, and 8 are mixed up in the graphic vs. links, just FYI.

    Thanks for sharing this great list!

      Thanks Stac! Just updated. It was a long night of pet swag finding :)

  4. krisi says:

    Wow such unique finds, thanks for sharing!

  5. That Free People dog bed is beautiful. I kind of want one for myself!

    I’d also recommend ‘dublin dog’ collars for people with active dogs.. especially swimmers. I got a “no stink” collar for my water loving dog a few years ago and it still looks like new

  7. Hunter says:

    That Madsen bike for your pet companion is a great idea, but I have a precocious little chihuahua with ants in his pants, I wish vespa would make a series for tiny tots like my little guy. Maybe a quasi kennel with (seat belt) on the from where the basket goes. Now THAT’S something I would Que up for, for hours.
