3- Dog ornaments

Many dog lovers will also be collectors.

Dog ornaments are ideal here as users can place them in their homes for decoration.

They are reminded of the love of the person that gave the gift, but also of the love for the dog that inspired it.

Many will collect dogs based on the breed that they prefer or perhaps show. This is when it helps to start searching for dog figurines by breed.

There are some companies that create realistic looking models of various breeds – such as Sandicast.

These models are affordable and ideal for those that love dogs of all shapes and sizes.

Then there are more stylized, collectible options like those from companies like the Pavilion gift company. Some ornaments are a little over the top in the cute factor. Others have a fun double purpose, like wine bottle holders.

4- Dog themed clothing

Some dog owners love to wear their pride in dog ownership on their sleeve – literally that is.

Dog themed t-shirts are therefore a great idea for dog lovers’ birthday gifts. Just be careful in choosing the right size.

As with the mugs, Dog Mom and Dog Dad dog t-shirts are popular.

The Dog Lovers Exclusive for dog moms is stylish and comes in many colors. This Wear’s shirt for dog dads says “best dog dad ever”, and also comes in a range of colors.

Some dog owners will also appreciate the chance to accessories with a dog scarf. These scarves also provide warmth on colder walks.

5- Dog jewelry

Sometimes dog clothing can be a bit too bold for some people. Then there are those that want to wear their love for their pet, but can’t really get away with a dog t-shirt at work.

This is where a more subtle item of dog jewelry can help.

There are all kinds of items of jewelry out there with a doggy theme. Many are for the female market, with pendants, brooches and earring.

But there are also cufflinks. Dog cufflinks make a small statement on a work shirt.

As with the ornaments, there are little Stirling silver models of all kinds of breeds out there.

Dog Stud earrings are also a cute idea for a little bit of sparkle.

Stirling silvers and enamel paw prints are always popular. Larger dog earrings may come in the shapes of breeds.
