10 Gifts For Pet & Animal Lovers Of All Ages
Certain pets take so much of our time and energy that when a friend has a pet, one of the gift giving considerations is his or her preoccupation (some call it love) with that pet. Then there are those whose greater interest is with wildlife and the animals only found in the wild, with the exceptions residing in zoos. Here are some new ideas for holiday gifts for the pet and animal loving human adults and kids in your life.
Animal Lover Gift No.1: DeLux Animal Face Hats & Mittens For Adults & Kids
Whether it's a dog, donkey, panda, or polar bear, Delux likely has an adorable hat face or mittens, knit from 100 percent wool and lined in fleece. Just so you believe me, here's an adult version of the Delux Giraffe Brown Wool Pilot Animat Cap/Hat.
Now, there's no guarantee that you will find gloves that match the animal hat, because they are sold separately, but here's just an example of the cute gloves... These are Delux Grey Owl Wool Animal Mittens.
Animal Lover Gift No.2: ZAGGskins For Adults & Kids
All you need is a photo of your friend's cat, dog, horse, or favorite other animal and the make and model of his or her laptop, phone, or e-reader. ZAGGskins does the rest... creating a scratch-proof patented film with military grade invisible-SHIELD protection with that gorgeous and loved creature right on it! (Update: Zaggskins are no longer available.)
Horse Lover Gift No.3: Kickin' Butt Women's Shorts

Dog Lover Gift No.4: A Dog's Tale Glasses (Chapter 1)
From Uncommon Goods, comes some clever glassware; four 16 ounce hand washable glasses with a story to tell. In the first chapter of A Dog's Tale, we see how dogs demonstrate some aggressive or daring behaviors.
The first glass in the story is captioned, "How to assess risk." Then, "How to demonstrate confidence," "How to bluff," and "How to defy authority." If you want to go in for the lot of them, you must see Chapter 2!
Cat Lover Gift No.5: The LOL Cat Bible
From Martin Grondin, his LOL Happy Cat translates the Bible into 'cat,' and even makes it easier for some humans to understand it. If you love cats and you love to laugh, this LOL Cat Bible will have you in stitches. "In teh beginnin Ceiling Cat maded teh skiez an da Erfs n stuffs." Great images!
Dog Lover Gift No.6: My Dog Is My Heart Bracelet
It is not surprising to dog lovers that one can achieve a stronger bond with his or her dog than with a human. But those who have achieved that bond will agree that this cuff bracelet by artist Elaine Seasmans, and available from In The Company of Dogs says it all. My dog is my heart is also inscribed on a ring, and chain pendant. Actually, In The Company of Dogs has great dog lover jewelry!
