12 Gift Ideas For The Animal Lover In Your Life

12 Gift Ideas For The Animal Lover In Your Life

These are your animal loving friends, and they are a blast to shop for around the holidays.


Everyone has a crazy cat lady friend, or maybe a friend that points out every single dog she sees on the sidewalk. Do you have a family member who loves animal decor? What about your friend who should be engaged to her pets rather than her fiancé? These are your animal loving friends, and they are a blast to shop for around the holidays. If you aren't sure what to get your fur loving friends, here are 12 gift ideas that might give you some inspiration.

1. Shelterpups.com gift certificate

Shelterpups.com allows you to send in any picture of your dog or cat and they will make you a custom plush version of your baby! The money is donated to help shelter animals, so it's a win-win.

2. Bark Box subscription

You get a package filled with toys and all natural treats delivered to your door every month (depending on what monthly package you picked out). It's great for those animal lovers who insist on no gifts, since it's technically a gift for their fur child. Congratulations, you found the friendship loophole!

3. Cat Lady Box subscription

This subscription box is for the human instead of the cat. However, on the website, you can choose the CRAZY Cat Lady box instead if you wish, which includes 2 items for the cat as well.

4. Animal-Themed Adult Coloring Book

A coloring book will allow your friend's creative side to come out for a while! The coloring is fun -- there's no denying that.

5. Hot Guys and Baby Animals 2019 Calendar

With a new year right around the corner, a new calendar is a perfect gift. What makes a calendar awesome? Baby animals! What makes a calendar even better than that? Hot guys and baby animals!

6. Hot Guys and Baby Animals book

If you think your friend won't be able to get enough of those hot guys and baby animals, there is a whole book available!

7. Super comfy animal robe

Whether you choose just an animal print or one complete with ears, a fuzzy bathrobe is going to be a loved present by anybody. They are just so warm and cozy for the winter!

8. Animal magnets

Cute animal refrigerator magnets are perfect for decorations or hanging pictures or memos.

9. A plush of their favorite animal

You can't go wrong here. They will appreciate anything involving their favorite animal of all time.

10. A Spirithood

This is a gift that will keep them warm and let them feel like the animal they really are. Ten percent of the net profits are donated to help endangered species and students are eligible for discounts!

11. Customized pet food bowl

Again, a gift for the dog is a gift for the human. Order a customized food bowl for your friend's dog/cat and both of them are guaranteed to love you forever. Bonus points if you buy some treats to go along with it!

12. Wall art

A cool wall painting of their favorite animal will definitely make them swoon. It's something they will get to look at and appreciate every day.

Happy shopping, and good luck!

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

Christmas Of Remembrance Series: My Last Letter

Christmas time is not about the gifts... It is about something far, far more special.


Dear Reader,

Thank you for your time.

This is a series that I have dedicated to those I have loved and lost. It was merely a thought, then an idea, and now a realized creation. Christmas time… all winter really is a hard time for me. It holds this duality in my life of being both my favorite and also my least favorite and difficult time of year. It has been that way for years now.

In a way, this series aids my closure and healing further, and it allows me to tell my story in a way that, to me, is less scary (one of the many great facets of this platform). It was never my intention to write this in order to reach people, or encourage people, or serve as an inspiration to anyone. This was for me and only me. No one else. But, if these pieces of writing do impact someone, somewhere, or make them feel encouraged or inspired in some way or another, or just simply make them feel, then I hope you have enjoyed them. If I can make someone feel, then I guess I have done my job.

The life of an artist is often an uncertain one. The life of a human is a trying one. But life is a journey, and all journeys have their trials. Their tests. Their triumphs and rewards. And they all have their losses. What matters most is what you make of all of it. What lessons you learn. What changes you make. What life you create for yourself. What art you create because of it all. It can be very, very hard. But it can all be glorious at the same time.

At the heart of this series, my words, there is this deep and valuable belief of mine: Christmas (or the Winter Holiday that you may celebrate) is so much more about presents and cooking and shopping and all that other bullshit… it is about family.

The family that is related by blood. The family that surrounds your heart. Your Mom. Your brother. Your dearest friends. The bonds that make life valuable. Worth living. These bonds are soulful bonds, ones that are far more special than any mere trivial object. So… be with them. Forgive. Forget. Heal. Mend what is broken. Reassemble what has been shattered. And stop worrying so much. Laugh together. Cry together. Heal on another. Heal together. And may your new days be better, brighter, and full of love.

Happy Holidays.


A song for you...
