Gift Guide: Animal Friends

Craft & Design Home

With the holidays approaching we all have very special people and animals to make or buy gifts for. Here is a gift guide to help give you some ideas that you can create or find for those animal lovers in your life.

An upcycled vintage suitcase bed makes a perfect present for a cat or small dog, or the human who adores them. Also a great way to support an indie designer and use recycled materials.

A custom silhouette animal portrait is a nice way to commemorate our favorite small friend and let them take center stage on our wall. This, of course, can be adapted for humans, but what’s the fun in that?

For the dapper dog, a colorful cubes bow tie, just might be in order.
A DIY Faux Fur Wrap is perfect for the animal-loving fashion plate in your life. Without hurting a fly, she can be warm, cozy and gorgeous.

Every dog and cat needs a collar, so why not hand make one with recycled or faux leather? This is a really great gift because you are providing something very practical and functional in a really custom, special way.

Another practical piece every animal needs is a name tag. Make that function have form with a handmade custom name tag.
