Can you believe it's already time for Christmas? I love looking at thoughtfully curated gift guides and thought it would be fun to put together a dog gift guide this year! Adam and I don't have any children and Elsie, our 4 year old golden doodle, is our life so it seems like the right thing to do. If you're a dog mom or dad and love to spoil your pup, here are 10 must-haves on Elsie's list. Ok fine, my list. Some of these are items that we've owned for years and have stood the test of time. Others are fun things we'll likely be getting her this year. Either way, I hope you enjoy this gift guide! 🎄
monogrammed tote bag for weekend getaways. I've always wanted to get a monogrammed LL bean bag for Elsie with her name on it. Something to lug her food, food bowls and toys in when we travel.
buffalo plaid blanket to plop down at Grandma’s house so you don’t get her couch dirty.
duck dog treats from local Polka Dog Bakery. Elsie is always in training and treats are her favorite reward for good behavior.
ball. Elsie is crazy about this ball. If your dog likes to play fetch or chase a ball, this ball is guaranteed to entertain! I buy them 3 at a time because somehow we manage to lose them. Her stocking will be full of them.
bandana because we all want our pups to look super cute. These bandanas are a must for your hipster dog.
safety vest for walks in the woods where hunting is permitted. Safety first! (not pictured)
carseat cover to keep mom and dad’s car clean. (not pictured)
mild fur wash made of lemon rind, tea tree leaf and spearmint leaf for your pampered pup. I mean, your dog needs aesop shampoo!
modern dog bowl stand by Doca Pet. Not only is it made in the USA, but it looks great and comes with two stainless bowls, one for food, the other for water. We've had ours for years and love it.
dog bed that won’t cramp your style.
