The weekend is here and holiday shopping continues! Anyone that follows this blog knows that one of the main loves of my life comes wrapped in fur with a wet nose and four paws. In every sense of the words, I am a “crazy dog mom” and I love it. If I start listing everything Manny has brought to my life, we would be here all weekend – so I won’t go into those details. However, if you are a fellow crazy dog mom or have someone on your list that is a dog lover, this gift guide is for you!
1. ‘Ask Me About My Dog’ sweatshirt – seriously this question is the best conversation starter and fastest way to my heart. 2. 'I Love My Dog A Latte' Mug - great way to start the morning! 3. Doggie Print Pjs – Pjs always make a great gift and this fun print is sure to make any dog lover happy. 4. Doggie cell phone case - I love the classic black and white! 5. ‘Dogist’ book – you’ve heard me say it a million times – I love giving books as gifts – especially ones that are filled with images of beautiful puppies and dogs! 6. 'You And Me and the Dog' Print - this print is one of many that you can snag at House15143 - a very cool home goods store in Sewickley! 7. Real Dogs Wine – ok…it doesn’t get much better than this! Who doesn't love wine as a gift? And you can you customize each bottle with your own dog photo and caption! 8. Doggie tea towels - choose from three great prints to decorate the kitchen. 9. Help the dog lover in your life to celebrate the holidays with a keepsake ornament. 10. Sweaters with animal prints always seem to come back in style - especially this time of year.
