14 Best Gift Ideas for the Dog & Cat Lovers in Your Life

There’s nothing quite like the bond between people and their pets, and many of us like to show it in our clothes, accessories, and home decor. But what do you buy for the cat or dog lover in your life? Short of bringing them a kitten or puppy (which is very cute but never a good idea!), it can be difficult to pick gifts that show you care and appreciate who they are. 

Custom Pet Portraits

Here at JoyousJoyfulJoyness, we provide custom portrait services to make drawings of your pet, completely hand drawn. What better way to honor their four-legged friend(s) than by having their portrait hung up on the wall? Whether their pet is around today or crossed the rainbow bridge, a portrait is a lovely way to keep your loved one’s furry friends in your mind. These portraits even come with a link to a timelapse video of the drawing so your loved one can see their pet’s portrait drawing come to life in real-time. Find out here about the dynamic custom foiled portraits of pets that catch the eye from every angle, and find out more about how to choose the right pet picture for your portrait here

JoyousJoyfulJoyness provides an additional service of turning that drawing into all kinds of accessories, which could be the perfect gift for your loved one! We’ve rounded up the best custom accessory gift ideas for dog and cat lovers (7 for dog lovers, 7 for cat lovers). Let’s jump in.

If the person you’re buying for likes to walk, jog, hike, or adventure with their furry friend, a water bottle or thermal flask is a fantastic gift. You can get a custom water bottle and consider buying a collapsible bowl so they can easily offer their dog water and pack the bowl away.  

2. Custom Phone Case

They say dogs look like their owners and while this isn’t always the case, many dog lovers and owners do have a lot of hair! Gift your loved one a printed headband for a practical gift that’s covered in pictures of their favorite dog. It’s ideal for daily wear, dog walks, and workouts. If preferred, we can also do a scrunchie!

Gift your loved one a custom printed throw blanket so they can snuggle up with their favorite dog, whether they actually have a pup to cuddle up with or not. At 50x60”, there’s plenty of room for the family, human and furry! 

7 Best Custom Accessory Gifts for Cat Lovers

1. Cat Mouse Pad

Cats are ideal pets for those with busy lives, as they happily look after themselves during the day and cuddle up with you when you get home, but of course that doesn’t mean you don’t miss them while you’re out! For those working at a computer most of the day, a custom printed mouse pad with an image of their kitty will be a welcome addition to the office. 

2. Printed Kitty Clothing

If someone in your life is cat-obsessed, they probably already have plenty of accessories covered in feline designs. But do they own something that features their cat? Treat your loved one to a custom t-shirt or sweater with their cat on the front. They’ll never forget a gift like that!

3. Kitty Stickers

People who love stickers LOVE STICKERS! Any sticker lover will have them all over their planner and stationary and of course kids and teens make sure every surface is covered in them. Be your loved one’s new favorite person by gifting them stickers with their cat on them. We can also do custom printed notebooks if you want to gift a stationary set! 

4. Colorful Cat Pillowcase

A stunning cat pillowcase is ideal for the cat lover in your life. You could order one of these generic cat pillowcases, or have a custom one made from your custom portrait. These pillowcases can add a welcome splash of color to any sofa or bed. 

5. Cat Apron

This isn’t an apron for a cat (though that would be adorable!), we’re talking a custom printed apron for your loved one, covered in an image of their cat. With practical pockets, this apron is ideal for use in the kitchen (of course!) but also for crafters and painters.
