Holiday Gift Guide for Pet Loving People 2013

Lea Jaratz

Gift guides can be so generic. For him, for her, for them, and so on. But, chances are, if you’re reading this, you’re one of many pet loving people in your circle. So why not spin the gift giving with a pet angle?

For the Fashionista

This lightly patterned infinity scarf is just pet-themed enough to show how you feel about your pup, but doesn’t scream “crazy dog lady.” $16.90

Rescue me charm braceletYou may also like: Dogs Design Woman's Scarf $10.99

I love when fashion and rescue intersect, and Rescue Me has it down. Their custom bangle includes 4 charms, with options for hearts, paw prints, horse shoes and more, with a portion of proceeds going to animal rescue groups. $46

For the Coffee or Tea Drinker

Pet mugs from Trips with Pets. Oh so punny, and oh so practical.

For the Techie

I’m not even a techie, but I really want a camera for my dogs’ collars. The Dogtek Videocam includes 2.5 hours of continuous recording and connects via USB for easy upload. $79

Similarly, Whistle is available for pre-order right now at a reduced price of $99.99 until 12/31/13. It offers activity tracking and rest reporting with regular updates right to your iPhone. Whistle syncs with wireless and Bluetooth for reports at home or away.

Old Leghumper Beer GlassFor The Wine and Beer Connoisseur

We’ve been known to enjoy Old Firehouse Wines on occasion. Not only are they local to Embrace HQ, but their Dalmatian Mascot is a classic. Might I recommend the Spiced Apple for a seasonal flare, it’s “sweet and lightly spiced with a mild blend of nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon and other spices.” Perfect for snuggling up on the sofa with your dog on a snowy winter night. $8.49

For the guy into barware and a frosty beverage, you can’t go wrong with the Old Leghumper Pint Glass. $4/each or 4 for $15

For the Adventurer

A leash upgrade from nylon to leather is a luxury that most of us don’t even realize, but you can take that a step further with the 6 Way Leather Dog Leash. It allows you to walk multiple dogs on one lead, or you can go hands-free with many length options. I don’t know why more people don’t go this route, but it’s a must have for any hiker or seasoned dog walker. $32.90

Jonny Justice Plush DogFor Kids & the Kid-at-heart

Jonny Justice Plush is a VICKtory dog turned literacy advocate and he can now be found in soft, huggable form. Perfect for kids or maybe a Pit Bull advocate on your list. $24.79

What item do you secretly hope to find in your stocking this year?
