Whether you’re seeking home decor ideas for your pet-loving friend or want to spruce up your own living quarters in a way your pets will appreciate, this gift guide is a must-read!
Looking for the perfect house warming gift for the new “cat lady” next door? Need the perfect birthday present for your dog-obsessed best friend? Finding a pet-themed home decor gift can be challenging no matter who you’re shopping for! But don’t worry — we’ve got you. The following list will help you find something just right for every recipient and occasion.
1. A dog-positive doormat
The perfect present for the animal-loving hostess in your life! Statement doormats are all the rage these days, and there are many pet-themed ones available for dog moms and dads. Not only are they a great way to “warn” guests about furry houseguests, they’re also the perfect place for those houseguests – and their two-legged counterparts – to wipe their dirty feet before entering!
2. A nightstand ft. a pet bed
Pet parents everywhere are looking for a way to blend their pet’s furniture with their own. What better to do that than to buy a nightstand that doubles as a pet bed? Perfect for cat parents and those with small breed dogs, multipurpose fixtures like these are trendy, functional and a great way to save space. If you’re getting this for a friend or family member, just be sure it matches the rest of their bedroom décor!
3. Some pawsitively adorable pillow shams
Nothing makes a house feel homier than a customized pillow sham. Wrap them up or stuff them in a stocking for the pet lover in your life, and you’re sure to receive a gratified “awww” in return! The best part? Most pillow covers are washable, so they’ll add years of life to any cushion…a perk that all pet parents will appreciate.
4. A chic pet toy basket
Even dogs and cats need a place to store their possessions! While it’s easy to throw them all in a plastic bucket or pile them in the corner, neither of these options is very chic. A cute bin or basket will help keep toys organized, and will double as a bold statement piece in any room. It’ll add to the appeal of the overall house, and keep it tidier to boot!

6. An odour-eliminating soy candle
What does every pet-friendly household have in common? Odours! Soy-based candles are the perfect gift for any occasion. They help eliminate nasty smells without posing a risk to animals – as many petroleum-based candles do. Soy candles are also extremely common these days, so you should have no trouble finding one in a scent of your choice!
7. This DIY coat rack with built-in pet treat jar
Feeling crafty? Homemade gifts are the best gifts, and this coat rack with a built-in treat jar is super simple to make! Head to your local hardware store to pick up the materials, and then paint, measure and fasten until the job is done! Even if the finished product doesn’t look exactly like the photo, it’s the thought that counts!
8. Some charming pet coasters
Give the gift of a ring-free coffee table! Between muddy paw prints on throw rugs and teeth marks in upholstery, pet parents have their fair share of home decor problems to worry about. Stains on their tables from sweaty beverages just add to the stress! Help them out with a set of coasters that matches their furnishings and their fur babe. In today’s artisanal market, there are hundreds of options available – from classic wood to quirky and personalized and everything in between.
9. These dog and cat flower pots
What’s better than plants? Plants in pots that looks like pets! These little decorative pots will add some color to any room, and they’re a great idea for your hard-to-buy-for friend. They come in a variety of styles – funny, stylish, personalized, etc. – and most of them are fairly inexpensive. Fill it with a pet-friendly plant, tie a ribbon around it and it’s ready to be gifted!
10. An artsy shower curtain with dogs on it
Last but not least… something colorful for the bathroom! When all else fails, a shower curtain is a good fallback gift. It might be a bit strange, but no one can say it’s not inventive! Speaking of inventive, if you’re planning to buy someone a shower curtain with pictures of dogs on it, the rule of thumb is: go big or go home. Look for obnoxious colors and bold patterns, and when in doubt go for something a little abstract.
