It can be tricky when the loved ones in your life only seem to want gifts that seem like more fitting for a pet. You can still find creative and practical gifts that both your loved one and their pet will love. If you don’t like animals, or least not as much your friend or family member does, the following are some ideas they are sure to appreciate.
Even animal lovers don’t enjoy the process of training animals all the time. One practical idea is a gift certificate to place that offers pet training. Whether they have a puppy who needs to stop chewing on furniture or a grown dog who needs to learn hunting techniques, the right training can go a long way in making life easier for your friend or family member.
A bird watcher who already owns their preferred camera might seem difficult to find a perfect gift for. However, bringing the birds to the bird watcher is perhaps the best gift of all. Top-end customized birdhouses are a far cry from the stereotypical, unpainted, roughly-sawed wooden boxes, and can provide just as much flavor to the local home as a foyer’s furnishings. You can find unique birdhouses for any home at www.skystonemall.com.
If you’re sick of seeing your father being dragged along by his own high-energy border collie, you might want to look into giving him the gift of an adjustable leash. Retractable leashes can be found for under ten dollars, and will let a dog’s owner adjust the length of a leash to allow for energy-burning walks without burning themselves out in the process. You can also find sturdier leashes that hook on to backpacks for avid hikers that take their furry companions along.
A Bathroom That Tends to Itself
While dogs have the grass, indoor cats are forced to stink up their own homes, much to the dismay of their owners. But self-cleaning, and even self-flushing litter box models are becoming more available in a wide range of models, letting the owner skip out on the dirtiest part of cat ownership. Average costs are only slightly higher than typical for a good ‘high end’ brand of standard litter box.
People and animals alike love food. Consider getting gourmet treats, for both your loved on and their pet. Some candy and chocolate ships sell homemade dog treats dipped in white chocolate, which is safe for them to eat. You can get everything from assorted chocolates to gourmet caramel apples from chocolate stores, and pick up an interesting treat for a pet at the same time.
Even if those you care for only seem to want to tend to the needs of other living creatures, there’s no reason to ignore the ways you can contribute to bolstering that animal-human bond.
