Holiday Gift Guide for the dog and cat lovers in your life!

Shopping for the animal lover in your life can be a lot of fun! From books, to clothes, jewelry and even boxer shorts, there's something for men, women and children that fits everyone's budget. Here's a list of some of my favorite finds in 2016. There may be a thing, or two, or three (!) on my wish list, so I sure do hope Santa is reading too! 

This book has been on my to read list for a while. And now that it's been made into a major motion picture due in theaters Jan 27, 2017, I really need to get my hands on a copy. On the New York Times bestseller list for a year, it's a story of one devoted dog searching for the meaning of life through the lives of humans. Sure to be funny, heartwarming and emotional, I can't wait to see the movie after reading the book. You can find your copy at any book store.
















What's not to love about this adorable sweater from Talbots? The cute face on this boston terrier coupled with the bright red is sure to make you feel cheery even on the coldest and darkest of winter days! The perfect gift for the boston terrier fan in your life, or any dog lover really! Buy yours HERE







How fun would it be getting dressed in the mornings by starting with these boxers? Featuring german shepherds, made out of 100% cotton, they're sure to be comfortable under any outfit - suit and tie or otherwise! Know someone who would love a pair? You can find them at JCREW.  











I love it when my purchase goes toward helping a great cause! So when I discovered the company I HEART DOGS I couldn't help but share more than one of their products on my gift guide list! I could spend a lot of time browsing through their website, but what I really like is that they also say how your purchase is making a difference. For example, buying this bracelet will help feed 10 shelter dogs. And how can you not agree with this sentiment? I probably say it everyday as I walk out the door for work. It is definitely going on my wish list!








Oh yeah! This about sums up my perfect day! Also found at I HEART DOGS, there are pages and pages of t-shirts - something for every dog and cat lover in your life. Every purchase helps feed 8 shelter dogs. How cool is that?












It's all about the glitter and glam these days! And this iPhone case from Kate Spade will fulfill any girl's wish for a something a little special under the Christmas tree! Isn't this simply adorable! You can find one at LORD & TAYLOR



I love instagram and it seems many cats (and dogs) have their own IG accounts these days. Some sure do lead exciting lives! I'm not ashamed to say many might even lead a more glamorous lifestyle than I do! Feline fans will love this book of over 400 photos from the instagram account @cats_of_instagram. You can find a copy at AMAZON.COM










CHARITY PAWS is another great company that creates apparel that is meant to be conversation starters. They donate 20% of every item purchased to non-profit animal charities all over the world! What a great way to make a difference while buying holiday gifts for the animal lovers in your life!  
























If your feet are going to be cold, you might as well make a fashion statement! These adorable ballet slippers come in 2 colors and can be found at any TARGET store! 









I found this hat and glove set while browsing through the new H + M store in downtown State College earlier this fall. That hat is just too cute for words! I already own too many hats and mittens, or this surely would have come home with me! What fun to wear on a cold and snowy day!
