Custom Pet Cookie Cutters

Do yourself a favor and take 2 minutes to scroll through the photo reviews from people who received one of these custom pet cookie cutters. The likenesses are uncanny and the results look delicious! The designer will capture your pet’s funky ear, extra cute nose, or whatever makes your pet extra unique. Whether you have time to order the cookie-cutter yourself or opt to give a gift certificate, the star baker in your life would love baking up a batch of these.

$27.99 at Bakers Street Cutters on Etsy

Handmade Pet Amigurumi

Have you ever wished you could take your pet with you anywhere? A pocket-sized version of your best friend is now available in amigurumi form! I can’t help but feel like this would be the perfect gift for a college student who’s left home and missing the family pet. It would be such a nice gift for anyone who’s missing their pet, travels a lot, or just wants this little cutie to keep them company. One reviewer said the artisan even let her include a bit of her dog’s hair, so a piece of them would always be close. The needle felted cats and dogs are also darling.

Custom orders start at $57.20 at the Owlystore on Etsy

Personalized Pet Photo Mask

Mask wearing isn’t so fun, but wearing your pet’s photo might make it a little more enjoyable. Uber soft, these masks are sure to be a socially-distanced conversation starter. They are adjustable, machine washable, and perfect for the essential or frontline worker who you’d like to acknowledge this holiday season or anytime.
