Best Gifts for Dogs and Dog Owners 2021

When it comes to buying a gift for a dog or dog owner, there are so many options – and not all of them are high quality and long-lasting. From countless dog toys to canine clothing and accessories, it can be hard to find something truly unique and meaningful.

Here at Animalist, we’re passionate about paying tribute to our four legged companions with beautiful, long-lasting and quality gifts. To help you find the perfect treat for a furry friend or loving doggie owner, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite dog gifts to help make your gift-searching easier.

1. Dog Art Print - Animalist

Pets are our pride and joy – and what better way to treat your loved one than with a beautiful print of their four-legged companion?

Personalised art prints are truly a heartfelt gift with a difference. A piece of art is something they can hang proudly in their home for generations to come, paying tribute to the furry friend in their life.

Art also makes a thoughtful gift, as it shows you’ve taken the time to think about their personal taste, style, and interior aesthetic. Our prints come in two different styles – minimalist line drawing and bold colourful silhouette – so you can choose a piece that will seamlessly fit in with your loved one’s home.

Worried you won’t be able to find the right breed? No matter how niche your friend’s breed is, chances are we’ll already have it in our collection. We have over 160 different dog breeds available, and we’re always working to improve and expand our selection!
