Pet Lover’s Gifts!
Unique Decor Ideas for that Special Pet!
I am a pet lover. Yes I love, love, love my pets! They bring me such happiness. Their unconditional love each and every day brings me a sense of well-being and comfort. It also truly touches me when a friend realizes how much my pets mean to me by giving me a gift just for them! Do you have friends that have pets that they adore? How about some pet lover’s gifts! I’ve come across some beautiful and unique decor ideas for that special pet, and wanted to share them with you.
Lola (pictured above) is my “pound puppy” as she came from a shelter. She is such a wonderful dog and so happy to have a happy, safe home! She would like to recommend a couple of products for you that she thinks would make a great gift!
Created by MG Stout.
Drawn from Nature
Your pet isn’t just an animal that shares your home–he or she is part of the family. Artist MG Stout understands that, and is ready to help you celebrate that special, four-footed friend in the style they deserve. Based on a photo that you provide, she creates a custom painted portrait that you (or your pet lover friend) will treasure for a lifetime.
A dog owner herself, MG Stout understands that each animal has a unique personality, and she works to convey that through her work. Using the photo as a reference, she uses charcoal and pencil to make her initial sketches directly onto the canvas. She then mixes her own custom colors, and uses layers of glazes that help to add an expressive texture to the piece. The final piece is vibrant and tries to capture the essence of what makes its subject unique. This is an unforgettable way to pay tribute to a current furry family member, or to commemorate a pet who now lives on in your heart. Painted in Lorton, Virginia.
Wouldn’t it make a great gift? Absolutely!
Lola is also a mutt and proud of it. We think she’s part pug and part terrier, but only she knows for sure. Because she is proud of her heritage, she wanted me to show you this unique gift idea —
A Blueprint to Paw All Over
Celebrate your unique pup with this mutt dog blueprint. Draw from the growing collection of available long- and short-haired canine varieties to find the silhouette that best matches your special pooch. A stamp above the title proudly declares your dog a rescue. The design – attributed to architect “I.M. Paws” – has a retro style and aged finish that give the impression of a vintage document. Made in Portland, Oregon.
There are also different options available so you can pick the one that fits your dogs size, shape and markings!
Here are two of my beautiful cats, Morris and Cali! I live in the country and Morris (the yellow cat) and Cali (the calico) were both dumped by what I consider to be heartless people. I will never understand how anyone can dump an animal but they do. Lucky for me though, because Morris is the sweetest cat ever and Cali loves me with all her heart!

Cat Composition Pillow
Open Meow Night
Your fur baby rules the family, and this decorative pillow poetically says you wouldn’t have it any other way. Unique from head to tail, each design features a playful acrostic poem celebrating your kitty’s special traits-from the Siamese’s “loud and low—pitched song” to the “formal clothes” of the aptly named Tuxedo—and an illustration with real meow factor. It’s stamped with an “Ailurophile” seal (aka “official cat purr-son”). Poems by Martin Geller. Illustration by Patricia Carlin. Made in Brooklyn, New York.
Here is the list of poems that you can get:
Bring your library to life with these sweet silhouetted bookends.
The Cat’s Meow
For feline fanatics who can’t resist sinking their claws into a good story, Eric Gross’ eye-catching bookends keep your ever-expanding library in line and at a paw’s reach. Hand cut from carbon steel, it captures the silhouette of two kitties just itching to get a hold of the books between them. Handmade in Kentucky.
And I don’t want to forget my bird-loving friends, so here’s a great gift idea for them!
Birds In Flight Mobile
Flight of Fancy
From DaVinci to the Wright brothers, designers have long been inspired by the organic grace of birds in flight. Israeli artist Rael Yaniv draws on the same inspiration to create a modern mobile made from polished stainless steel. Each of its graceful birds is constructed from a single piece of metal through the techniques of kirigami—the Japanese art of cut and folded paper. The feather-like perforations in the birds’ wings keep the composition light and airy, and cast intriguing shadows as they float through the air. This kinetic work of art makes a thoughtful gift for any bird lover. The tarnish-free materials are suitable for indoor or outdoor display. Made in Israel.
