Dog lovers enjoy gifts that feature their dog's images and names. The digital age makes reproducing photographs easier and the Internet allows personalised gift items to be ordered online by sending digital images directly to manufacturers who produce and mail the gifts to friends, family members, colleagues and other dog lovers in your life. Almost anything can be personalised, and gifts ranging in price from £6 to £65 include housewares, art, clothing, office supplies, bedding, toys, jewellery and mementos. Giving a personalised gift shows the recipient that you value the dog-human relationship.
Attire for People & Dogs
People who love their dogs might enjoy receiving attire featuring their dogs' image or name. Many items are available online, including personalised T-shirts and sweatshirts, some of which display reprinted photos of the dog sent digitally to the manufacturer. Some T-shirts are amusing, such as one with text that reads, "No Outfit is Complete Without (Dog's Name)'s Dog Hairs," or "I love my dog...but (name of your dog) isn't ready for that kind of commitment."
Other personalised gifts dog lovers can wear or carry are the Doggy's Owner Personalized Hat, the I Love My Dog Personalized Canvas Tote Bag, the My Best Friend Dog Personalized Photo Tote Bag or a personalised dog breed necktie.
You might also give your dog-loving friend some personalised pet attire. Some gifts for dogs are an engraved leather leash or collar with the dog's name and phone number, personalised bandannas and a Pet Pouch Overnight Bag that "features a roomy main compartment, two side pockets, and front and back zipper pouches to hold all their bow wow basics," as described by Find Gift's ideas for personalised pet gifts.
Kitchenware, Household and Decorative Gifts
Personalised kitchenware for dog lovers includes stainless steel dog breed mugs, double bowl feeders and pet placemats displaying the dog's name and photo that "help keep floors cleaner and prevent sliding...add a decorative touch to feeding stations...and are machine washable," according to Doctors Foster & Smith.
A dog lover might appreciate an engraved dog treat glass or ceramic cookie jar, a mug that says "Official Dog Walker of (dog's name)," dog bowls with their dog's name and/or photo or personalised dog breed wine glasses and towels. Other personalised gifts are a photo night light, bone-shaped leash holder, a keepsake box and car mats featuring the dog's photo.
Gifts that welcome people into the dog lover's home include welcome plaques, various styles of door mats decorated with silhouettes or photos of the dog or amusing warnings, such as "Don't Let (dog's name) Out! No Matter What He Tells You."
Personalised Christmas ornaments come in various shapes, including bones, dog houses, dogs, paws, Christmas stockings and hearts. All of these items can be personalised with the gift recipient's dog's name.
Stationery and Office
Personalised gifts for the office include dog breed or dog photo collage mouse pads, note cards and stationery sheets with envelopes, memo sheets in an acrylic cube or a dog photo business card holder.
A framed mock magazine cover featuring the dog's name and photo, or a calendar with photographs of the pet lover's dog provides a special and unique gift to display in the home or office.
You can even purchase a personal e-mail signature for dog lovers, described by My Face Icons as, "a personal icon that can be used as an e-mail signature and much more. Drawn from a photo in vivid colours to look just like their pet."
