Dog lovers tend to be demonstrative—not only do we shower our furry friends with attention, fancy dog food, and gourmet dog treats, we often like to announce our devotion to the world at large, or at least appreciate a few Fido-themed tchotchkes. If you’re one of us—or know someone who is—these are some of the best gifts for dog lovers we could fetch.
We already rounded up some adorable (and practical) dog-themed kitchen items in honor of National Puppy Day, but they’re equally great for holiday gift giving…or the perfect Mother’s Day gift for your favorite dog mom.
Love coffee almost as much as you love corgis? Consider a coffee subscription from the wonderfully named Grounds & Hounds—they sell fair trade, organic, specialty coffees (and other coffee-related products) and donate 20 percent of profits to support rescue organizations that help dogs who are between homes. It’s a gift that keeps on giving, in more than one way.Buy Now
If your dog lover is also a dinner-maker or dessert-baker, chances are they’ll adore this dog-print apron, which has a handy pocket in front for holding utensils, a phone, or a supply of dog treats.Buy Now
Protect your own paws with these puppy-print oven mitts. They have a soft lining for comfort but a textured silicone coating that provides both heat protection and a secure grip—much to the dog’s chagrin, there’s no chance you’ll drop that pan of lasagna on the floor.Buy Now
Fact: Frenchies are adorable, and flower crowns, however played-out some may deem them, are still charming (at least when they’re placed on animals, or on pictures of animals). So, these kitchen towels are clearly extra cute, and your favorite French bulldog fan or pet-having hipster (maybe that’s you?) will proudly display them.Buy Now
Decidedly less chic, these assorted dog bottoms will still delight those with certain strains of humor. And every fridge needs some random novelty magnets, so why not these? The fire hydrant is a nice touch.Buy Now
Do you like to take your precious pup everywhere? Then you’ll surely appreciate this doggie travel bag, with several handy zippered and/or elastic compartments, including one for kibble—it even comes with two collapsible bowls for feeding and watering on the go. And it’s TSA-approved, so perfect for jet setters (or Westminster Dog Show candidates).Buy Now
Reusable bags are a great eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastic, and they come in so many styles, they basically double as accessories. This dog-printed tote bag is perfect for those who want to advertise their love for puppies while they’re grabbing groceries—or taking a day trip to the beach (with their party animal in tow, no doubt).Buy Now
For the dog moms who want everyone to know where their allegiances lie, this insulated tumbler is perfect for sipping morning coffee, afternoon water, or evening wine—and it has a lid to guard against spills (whether from human error or wildly wagging tails).Buy Now
Speaking of wine, while you’re enjoying your own, throw your dog a bone—or rather, a wine bottle, in plush toy form. You can play doggy sommelier too. For instance, if this “Cavalier Sauvignon” from “Napaw Valley” doesn’t seem like it’d do it for the dog in question, go with a “Woof Clicquot” squeaky toy instead.Buy Now
Conversely, if you and your dog prefer beer, this nonalcoholic drink for dogs is made from malt barley and glucosamine, which is great for maintaining healthy joints. Word of caution, though: reviews are mixed; some dogs reportedly loved it, while others of the Spuds MacKenzie persuasion probably would have preferred a Bud Light.Buy Now
This smart, wifi-enabled pet camera and treat dispenser lets you stay connected to your pup even when you’re at the office (working hard so your dog can have a better life, of course). It lets you see 1080p HD video of your dog (or cat), even talk to them and remotely throw treats. Other features include built-in Alexa voice command control, 160-degree full-room view, night vision, and real-time sound and motion alerts—honestly, this almost doubles as home security, in case your dog is not so much about guarding the house as it is about lazing around it.Buy Now
