We live in a pet-loving society, where we know several people with pets and might even have some ourselves. There is evidence that interacting with pets reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, and decreases the risk of heart attacks and strokes, among a multitude of other benefits.
Pets wove their way into our homes, our hearts, and are considered part of the family. We even go as far as celebrating their birthdays with a special treat, and including them in our vacation plans!
If you are shopping for a hopelessly devoted pet parent, show them you understand their obsession and celebrate it with a custom gift! There are few things a pet parent will appreciate more than a custom gift with a print of their favourite animal.
Custom gift ideas these days have gone well beyond personalized print mugs or dog t-shirts, and we have scoured the web for our favourite gifts for pet owners. From pet jewelry to pet paintings and canvases, here are our top picks for the perfect gift for all the addicted pet parents out there!
1. Custom Pet Canvas by Vogue Paws
Vogue Paws loves modern art and pure simplicity in the design. Artists are focused on finding and capturing the unique character of each pet in one simple line. Not only does each pet canvas celebrate love for your favourite furry friend, they are an affordable and accessible way to add stylish art to the home or office.
You choose your design from their product range, upload the photo of the pet and approve the proof after a few days. That’s it!
Not happy with the initial proof? You’ll also have unlimited revisions to get it perfect. The 4 available sizes ensure your artwork fits in any living space.
2. Pet Pendant by Mignon and Mignon
This coin necklace features the engraving of the pet portrait along with their name. A delicate and simple design, we think it makes the perfect custom gift or a memorial piece for pets that have passed.
The length of the necklace can be customized to suit your preferences and you can upgrade the gift packaging at a small additional cost. Orders will typically take under a week to be delivered and they ship internationally!
3. Petsies Custom Face Mask
Who would have thought face masks were to become such a vital part of our lives? Since we all need to wear them anyway, why not make the experience a little happier with these fun, double-layered masks.
These machine washable face masks feature adjustable straps and nose bridge strips for maximum comfort. You choose a design pattern, upload a photo and wait to receive your new accessory.
We love the fun factor it brings to a necessary accessory these days, but think that a 3-4 week shipping time might be a little lengthy.
4. MyPetPrints Phone Case
Instead of thumbing through images in your phone to show off your pet, why not just show off the case? You’ll get to take your pet’s digital illustration everywhere! The UV printed matte finish is long lasting and the cases come in multiple sizes for most brands of phone models.
The cases are made with BPA-free Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) edges, a Polycarbonate back, is wireless charging compatible and aligned port openings, ensuring a perfect fit to your phone model.
Just pick your phone model, upload a photo and approve the artwork in 2-3 days.
5. Custom Pet Art Fleece Blanket by Pop Your Pup
Every pet owner knows that the blanket is crucial to your pooch’s sleep. Dogs love their blankets, and many trainers say that when adjusting your pooch to new surroundings, their blanket will make the move effortless.
Pop Your Pup features anti-pill fleece blankets with 4 different sizes to fit any dog beds, and they won’t print your order until you approve it. Their artists will work on your art until you love it, and if they can’t make something you do, they’ll refund 100% of your purchase. Priced between $55 to $90 depending on size, this blanket should last for several years, or until the dog chews it up!
6. Custom Tote Bag by GoMine
The tote bag is an essential part of any bag collection. From grocery runs to beach days, we use totes all the time. An eco-friendly replacement for plastic shopping bags and big enough to hold all you need in a day’s outing, totes are now more popular than they have ever been.
GoMine provides customization options for pet prints on this durable, heavy canvas material that measures 14” (w) x 16” (h) and the entire ordering process takes approximately 2 weeks. At $35.89, we found this to be reasonably priced and a great gift for a devoted pet parent.
7. Personalized Print Glass “All We Need Is Paws”
Of course, no list would be complete without the ever-popular custom gift of a personalized print mug. Everyone loves to start their day with a morning coffee drank from a mug of their favourite animal. This ceramic mug is customizable with a photo and a unique phrase.
Great for the home or the office, this mug is dishwasher and microwave safe. It holds 15 fluid ounces (444ml), and at $13, we found this a very reasonable gift for pet owners.
8. Personalized Dog Bandana
Dogs look soooo adorable with their perky bandanas! Pet owners love playing dress up with their dogs and bandanas are both functional and stylish. Made with 100% super soft cotton, each bandana is handcrafted and designed with rough use and play in mind.
Several colours are available and at $15.29, it is available on Etsy.
9. Customized Pint Glasses
Shopping for a drinking buddy? Why not combine both of their loves and have their pooch printed on pint glasses? Printed on high quality UV-cured ink, these glasses can be machine-washed without the fear of ruining the portrait.
