There are some great sites to get gifts for the pet lover. And not just the cat or dog owner. Don’t forget about lovers of birds, chickens, turtles, reptiles, bunnies, horses, and, yes, even insects (check out this article about picking the pet bug that’s right for you.
We’ve compiled a short but awesome list of some great sites to find special gifts for any pet lover.
1) The Animal Rescue Site is a powerhouse in the come and go world of animal sites. It has been around since 2000. It has a button you can click daily that helps feed animals in need and boasts over 600,000,000 bowls of food donated at this point.
Besides being a great place to pick up a gift with a pet-related theme in a variety of areas, your purchase also goes towards feeding shelter animals (each product will give you an estimate of how many animals will be fed by your purchase).
We think a lot of cat lover will get a kick out this cat shaming calendar:
Besides calendars there are socks, shoes, shorts, bags and blankets. There’s also home decor, jewelry, kitchenware, and stuff for yard and garden.
Prices are very reasonable and discounts are often offered as well.
2) UNICEF has a beautiful collection of animal themed cards and gifts. The card below is from the Holiday Cards Boxed Set, ‘Asian Deer,’ and sells for only $12. This purchase can also help fund 8 doses of measles vaccine for kids, according to the site.
Jewelry, home decor, accessories and more can be browsed for a memorable gift for anyone who loves animals.
Some of our picks (and we will definitely be back to the site for our own holiday shopping):
3) If you know the gift recipient has a favorite pic of their pet (or maybe there’s a really good one of them and their fur baby together on social media), consider “making” your own gift. Walmart lets you put a photo on a poster or framed picture, blanket, calendar or key chain.
We have personally ordered a blanket with a picture of artwork we created and loved the way it turned out. The artwork looked great in large size and the blanket was really soft. Prices aren’t bad either, and the shipping on our blanket was really quick, especially given that it was a specialty item.
4) DeviantArt.com This forum for digital artists of all levels to display their work contains a myriad of animal artwork that can be purchased as prints of various sizes. Not only do you benefit your “giftee,” but you help support budding digital artists (who receive a portion of the purchase of their artwork).
Here are some of the many examples of the beautiful and unique works available:
