Animal Lover Holiday Gift Guide

Holiday Gift Guide: For the Animal Lover

We’re back with another holiday gift guide… this time, for the animal lover. Aka me. This is basically a gift guide for me. Friends and family, take note.

I had so much fun putting this guide together. Animal lovers in your life are sure to love anything on this list! I’ve tried to include items to fit all budgets, so get shopping!


parrot socks

Are these the cutest things ever? They have tons of other animals, too. Find them here for $10.

Home Goods

turtle pillow giraffe bookends

Etsy is a goldmine for this stuff. This tortoise pillow is $40, and these giraffe bookends are $42. Some other ideas: ornaments, mugs, and wall hooks.

Prints & Posters

mates for life print

This print of animals that mate for life is $44. Present it in a nice frame and you have the perfect gift! Have a dog lover on your hands? Try searching for their favorite breed for a huge assortment of pieces they’d love to hang on their walls. I especially love old ads and magazine covers, like this one featuring a German shepherd (my favorite breed *hint hint*).

Baking Set

A set of 50 animal cookie cutters from Wilton is only $10! Pair that with whale measuring cups (Bianca would die) for $25 and a bulldog cookie jar (now I’m dying!) for $20 and you have the perfect baker’s gift set!


Try giving a donation – in your giftee’s name – to an animal rescue organization that’s important to them. You can try a local animal shelter, a farm animal sanctuary, or an organization that helps save exotic animals.

Any other ideas? Share them in the comments below! I have tons of animal lovers on my list this year. Or maybe I’ll just buy it all for myself. Hard to tell, really. xo Sara
