10 Gift Ideas for Pet Owners

Gifts For Pet Owners

Shopping for pet owners is so much fun because pet people are good people. It’s also because you’ll find many possibilities that fit different styles and tastes. Let them and their furry friends know that you’re thinking of them with great gift ideas for pet owners all year.

It doesn’t matter if they have dogs, cats, or hamsters! Many innovative presents will show them you care. Check out these great gifts to make new or experienced pet parents feel special. 

1. Elevated Doggie Bowl

Not just any old doggie bowl, these elevated troughs come specifically designed. They help young puppies learn how to sit up while drinking or eating. They also help older dogs prevent pain by not having to bend down so far. 

Find elevated doggie bowls made with dishwasher-safe materials so the pet owner can easily clean them after meals. Some bowls even come with microwave-safe inserts for efficiently heating pet food. 

2. Pet Tracking Apps

No matter how domesticated an animal is, there’s always a chance of escape—a nightmare scenario for any pet owner. Not only do owners worry about their pet’s location, but they also worry about their safety. 

Technology can help ease a worried pet owner’s mind. 

Many apps can be a good fit, depending on the type of pet or owner’s phone. Help an owner keep track of their missing furry friend. Your loved one will rest easy knowing their pet’s location so they can get them back home where they belong. 

3. Personalized Pet Bed

Giving your friend’s pet a comfortable place to sleep will help your friend sleep better too. Choose from plush to firm, small to extra-large, and waterproof to orthopedic pet beds. Once you’ve decided, personalize the bed with a favorite quote or the pet’s picture and name. 

4. Customized Food Container

Help your loved one stay organized, stylish, and ready to feed when their pet is hungry. Let’s face it, pet food packaging doesn’t always look great. If your friend wants an aesthetically pleasing kitchen, give them a customized food storage container. 

Get creative by choosing funky colors and interesting shapes. Some container labels have cool fonts or pictures of the beloved pet. You can keep it simple and classic with gold/silver or black/white designs. 

5. Care Package

Do the pet owners in your life love soup, cookies, or candles? Consider a care package that goes to the entire household and includes some extras for their four-legged family members. Responsible pet owners do a lot for their pets and deserve some love, too!

Spoonful of Comfort also creates loving care packages for owners mourning a lost companion. We have a Pet Sympathy Package filled with comfort food and other items so you can express sympathy for their loss.

6. Personalized Pet Tags

Help pets stay safe with an identity tag. Not just any tag will do—get stylish with a personalized pet tag.

Choose one that clearly displays the pet’s name and owner’s contact information. The rest is up to you! Tags feature photos, patterns, and designs to fit different kinds of animals and tastes. 

7. Car Seat Covers

This is a gift many pet owners need but might not think to get for themselves. Too many throw old towels or sheets in their car. Instead, give them car seat covers made for pet owners. 

These practical car seat covers protect a car’s upholstery from pet dander, dirt, or hair. This is especially helpful during rainy, snowy, or muddy seasons. Choose from heavy-duty waterproof polyester and styles that fit most car types.

8. Monthly Treats

A monthly dog or cat treat subscription is a gift that keeps giving all year. 

Send your favorite pet owner treats, training supplies, chews, fun toys, or a combination every month. Many deliveries include 5 to 7 hand-picked products, and some companies donate a portion of the proceeds to animal shelters.

9. Donate to a Charity

Speaking of donations, if you still can’t figure out what to send to the pet owners in your life, how about donating in their name to a favorite charity? 

Choose an animal shelter, animal protection agency, or conservation nonprofit. Give a gift to benefit lots of animals or animal lovers.

10. Cookbooks for Pet Owners

Do you know a pet owner who loves to cook? Give them a cookbook filled with easy-to-make, veterinarian-approved recipes for the cats or dogs in their lives. Any chef will enjoy cooking for the entire family, and pets will enjoy the special treats, too! 

Fun Gift Ideas for Pet Owners

Even if you’ve never shared your home with a pet, you can easily find the perfect gift for someone who does. Letting pet owners know you’re thinking of them no matter the occasion (holidays, birthdays, adoption days, or for consolation) is a great idea.
