I love the idea of giving personalized gifts for dog lovers. Heck, I love giving dog gifts overall.

In fact, when writing about housewarming and hostess gifts, I’ll often suggest bringing gifts for the dogs of the house rather than a boring old bottle of wine.

Before Etsy I might have just gotten some toys and treats from the supermarket. However, these days you can find all kinds of personalized gifts for fur babies and their owners on the site.

Personalized Dog Gifts from Etsy

Check out the Editor’s Picks page on Etsy for all the best Gifts for Pets. I’ve picked out some of my favorite presents for pets. 

Because I am a dog lover, I’ve highlighted personalized gifts for dogs only.

Etsy Custom Dog Gifts

This round up of gift ideas is for dog lovers, dog owners and, in some instances, the dogs themselves. I think you’ll love these personalized gift ideas.

Personalized Gifts for Dogs Owners

When it comes to gifts for dog owners, you’re likely looking at something that memorializes a pet–past or present.

Or, you’re giving them a gift that allows them to enjoy spending time with their dog. 

I’ve always said that as a crazy dog lady, if you gave me any gift that would let me have fun with my pups, that would be the perfect, personalized gift for me.

So here I’ve outlined those personalized gifts that are literally pet portraits or photo gifts.

After that, I’ve suggested ideas for the owner to help them enjoy spending time with their dog.

Pet Portraits

When it comes to custom pet portraits, Etsy has a range of options. This includes:

  • Photos
  • Digital prints
  • Watercolor paintings
  • Canvas prints

Some of these pet portraits are the traditional kind you frame. Others are pet portraits depicted in 3D on a piece of jewelry.

They really do run the gamut. 

For instance, I saw a custom pet portrait photo that reminded me of those awkward family photos that were viral a few years ago. One is a human with his dog, both wearing matching vests. Um, OK.

But for a dog lover with a great sense of humor, this funny custom gift could be a home run.

Custom pet gifts for owners

I spied on Etsy some really fun custom gifts for dog owners.

For example, one Etsy artisan sells matching hoodies for dogs and humans. How cute is that?

Speaking of matching with your dog, you can get a fanny pack/cross body bag in a fabric that matches a bandana for your dog

Other personalized gifts include socks with your dog’s face on them or pajama pants featuring your dog’s portrait.

Here are some of those custom clothing pet gifts for owners. Some of these are super adorable photo gifts.

Finally, you can find custom animal calendars on Etsy.

Custom pet gift keychain

What a great small gift this could be: a custom pet gift keychain that features a picture of your dog.

Here are some clever ones I found on Etsy.

Funny custom pet gifts

How’s this for funny pet gifts? A calendar of dogs pooping in beautiful places. This has gone viral nationwide and would be a hilarious present to bring to a Christmas party where you’re playing the Elf gift exchange game.

Here’s my article on dog calendars.

However, maybe you’re more interested in funny pet gifts that you can personalize. I’ve found a handful for you on Etsy.

What to keep in mind when buying personalized dog gifts

If the gift you end up getting is truly personalized, you really need to shop sooner rather than later. 

Because the Etsy shops will likely be getting lots of orders and they need sufficient turnaround time to make and deliver those gifts.

So whenever you’re reading this article, I would click through the shopping links I’ve provided, and make your gift buying decisions today. 

I’d hate to see you hesitate and miss out on getting a gift that you can give on time for the dog lover in your life.
