Purrfect Present Ideas
Ok, admit it…. We've all got one of those friends or a family member who loves their pet with an over the top enthusiasm, right? I'm talking let them sleep on the bed, bake birthday cakes for and just general pampering gusto, pet people!

In my circle, I am that person! So trust me when I say that the list of gift ideas for pet lovers below, will make their Christmas!

1. Pop Your Pup
Turn their furry, feathered or scaly best friend into a piece of pop art that would make Andy Warhol jealous! Think bright, bold colours to contrast their favourite pet pic on a shirt that they can wear loud and proud.

The creative team at Pop Your Pup have been creating these wearable canvasses since 2014 and have shipped to over 50 countries as they're popularity has increased.

It's easy to order, either purchase a gift card for your friend or if you're feeling creative then they'll walk you through each step and will offer guidance on what picture to use, to what colours will work best and you get the final say before it goes off to be printed on a good quality shirt, singlet or jumper.

They also offer a US$10 flat rate shipping cost to anywhere in the world. International delivery takes about 7-10 days, so keep that in mind if you're ordering for this Christmas.

2. Olly's Box
Here's a gift they can both enjoy. Dogs love almost anything new and their excitement can be infectious! Now imagine their excitement on a monthly basis when the postman drops off a parcel just for them!

Barkley loves presents!

Olly's Box is a monthly subscription box for the fur kids of the family. Each month they'll get a box full of fun, healthy goodies for the dog and owner to enjoy!

Or if you're not sure about a monthly subscription, why not try their Christmas Box as a sampler! For approx. $50 the pampered pup will receive a selection of festive toys and treats so they don't miss out this silly season!

For more info check out my Olly's Box WN Article or the Olly's Box website

3. Personalised Paw Print Jewellery
It doesn't get much more personalised than your pet's paw print on a piece of jewellery. This keepsake will make any pet lover happy, with something they can keep by their side all the time!

Little Silver Prints has you covered and will supply the inking kit and will turn your pooch's paw print into a beautiful, one of a kind piece of silver jewellery. There's a variety of pendants, charms and silver chains for you to choose from.

Gift vouchers and gift boxes are available to be sent directly to the recipient or to yourself. See the website for pricing/further information.

4. Pet Photography Session
Why not capture the bond between animal and human with a gift certificate for a pet photography session.

5. Eat Street Drive In
Something a little less conventional but definitely a lot of fun, a ticket or two to the new pet friendly Eat Street Drive in.

You can share your popcorn with your pup in the comfort of your car or sit in the dress circle with pooch on a lead by your side (on your lap).

What a lovely article. I don't go all out for my puppy, however I am sure she would enjoy going to watch a movie with me. Thank you for a quirky article.
