It can be challenging to find the perfect gifts for friends and family at Christmas, birthdays or other special occasions, especially if you have a lot of friends and relatives!
Many people have dogs or love dogs, though, and everyone loves a personalized or custom gift.
So, make your life easier by reading our guide to some personalized gift ideas for dog lovers. You are sure to find something you love. Or rather, you are sure to find something that someone else will love (but you might not be able to resist ordering something for yourself as well).
1. Customized Dog accessories
Collars, bowls, dog tags, placemats, raincoats and leads are just a few of the items that you might consider as a gift for the dog lover (and dog) in your life. However, nearly any gift can be made better by getting it personalized. So, why not consider what items are needed by the person you are buying for and take a look at the customization options available. Personalised dog bowls are sure to delight any dog owner, even if the dog has no idea why!
Everyone wears socks! They are essential for costing up by the fire and keeping your feet warm on long wintry walks in the countryside. Socks make a fantastic gift for pretty much anyone. However, they can sometimes be a bit bland and generic for those closest to you. Custom socks will have you reconsidering your stance on giving your loved one's socks though. For dog lovers,
Lovimals’ custom dog socks are a dream come true. Available in a variety of designs and colours, these custom socks provide the perfect gift for those who want to stare at their dog all day - even if they’re at work or the gym!
3. Framed photo
A beautiful photo, framed in a dog-inspired frame, will make a great addition to nearly any mantelpiece or sideboard. Snap a photo of their pet when they are not looking and get it printed at professional printers, or even on your printer at home before finding a suitably dog-themed frame.
You can’t go wrong with a picture of your friend's pet, as it will always be appreciated no matter how many other photos your friend has of their pet!
What is better than cuddling up on the sofa with your little (or big) furry friend?
Except, of course, being able to cuddle up with your furry friend on the sofa covered in a massive cosy fleece blanket, with an illustrated version of your pet’s face on it! Now that sounds like perfection.
The Lovimals’ customizable pet blanket is as much for an owner as it is for their pet. Available in a variety of colours, this is certainly a unique gift for a pet owner. It is also suitable for cats as well, all you have to do is upload a photo of a pet, and hey-presto Lovimals will do the rest of the work!
5. Treats for the dog
Any list of great gifts for dog lovers would not be complete without something for the dogs themselves. Dog treats specially selected for the canine in question will always make an excellent gift for dogs and dog-owners alike. Make sure to check whether the recipient's dog has any allergies or intolerances before making any purchases though. Dog lovers will always appreciate you giving their beloved fur baby some treats, as those things can get expensive. Especially when you have a dog that eats like a baby elephant!
Your beloved pooch may be circling around you for a few minutes before you realize that he is trying to tell you something.

Relax. We have made a list of the symptoms from which you can easily identify if your dog can have separation anxiety. You can then take steps to reduce his anxiety and make him calm down.
