15 Clever Gifts For Dog Lovers
Confession time: I don’t have a dog (yet), and I never had one growing up. But I still am more than qualified to share with you the very best dog themed gifts for people who like dogs more than humans. After all, my urge to own a corgi is so strong that I am kept sane only by GIFs and the countless Pinterest wish lists filled with the things I will buy when I finally get a dog. Truly, trust me when I say I've done the research. In fact, I’m going to go ahead and make the argument that this little fact makes me the most qualified to write gift guides for dog lovers.
I fill my lack-of-puppy loneliness with things like corgi pillows and flower pots shaped like dogs. The vast majority of my best friends own dogs that I regularly shop for, and while I’d like to pretend that this is a coincidence, there’s admittedly a pretty solid chance that I only befriended them because of said dogs. Whether you’re shopping for your dog or shopping for yourself with your love of dogs in mind, check out these awesome gifts and items for humans who prefer man’s best friend.
