All dogs deserves to look good during long flights or road trips sporting a stylish new dog harness or dog clothes.

Gift wrapping ideas and supplies
Finding the perfect gifts is fairly easy; wrapping those presents is more often the challenging part (especially for oddly-shaped gifts like dog bones).
We want you to feel comfortable wrapping Christmas gifts, so here are some tips on how to wrap the perfect gift for the Holidays and my favorite supplies for gift wrapping.
Presentation is everything when it comes to gift giving. And we are going all out for the holidays! After going over all the great gift ideas listed above for that pet lover friend of yours, it’s time to plan the presentation. Here are a few ideas for better gift-wrapping:
- Kraft paper
- Silk ribbons
- Dog-inspired wrapping paper
- Pet gift baskets
Nothing says attention to detail for your dog-loving friend like pet gift baskets, a cute silk bow and gourmet dog treats.
I find that pet gift baskets make the perfect gift for pets and humans alike. Filled with toys, blankets, and add a few extra treats for the humans too.
Of course, it’s absolutely worth that extra thought and effort when you remember that everything gets paid back in cuteness and cuddles.
After all, pets are part of the family. Not to mention the fact that they’re happy to jump on you, give you kisses or enjoy couch snuggles whenever you come home or finish your workday (for those working at home).
In addition to basic daily needs like food, water, attention and walks, the most spoiled pups enjoy a bounty of the best toys, dog beds and accessories, so the pressure is on to give them something that stands out.
When the world gets crazy, the unconditional support and love you get from your furry BFF is sometimes the only thing that keeps you going, and he or she deserves something special in return.
The best recommendation I can give you, no matter which gift (or gifts) you choose to go with, is to tackle your holiday shopping early or try some scrapbooking holiday gift ideas to make for yourself or gift to those you love.
