With the holidays just around the corner, it's time to start thinking of presents to give your acquaintances and dear ones. Finding unique presents can present a gainsay, and most people never believe in giving pet-related presents. Since the chances are good that more than one person on your vacation gift list has a pet that he or she adores, why not give a distinctive gift that your receiver will treasure? Here are five great gift ideas to get you started:
1. Fine Art Animal Prints
Dogs may come in several shapes and sizes, however each has a personality all its own. One of the most fabulous gifts you can give to a pet lover is a superfine art print of his or her breed. One of the most notable creative people offering fine art animal prints is Lorena Pugh. Her print, "Princess," for , describes a white toy poodle placing atop a stack of 12 colorful pillows, while "Angel Face" showcases a beautiful pug who has just snagged a bunch of grapes off of a dining room table.
In "Chocolate Craving," she realistically seizures the languishing of a chocolate lab as he reaches for a tennis ball against a beautiful background of blue sky. These limited edition animal prints are sure to be valued, as each comes with a consecutively numbered dog tag to match the tag in the print.
2. Crystal Animal Statues
Whether your gift receiver has a dog, cat, horse, or rabbit, he or she is certain to love an exquisite crystal animal statue. Typically made from 24 percent lead crystal, hand-finished animal statues are beautiful still impulsive. Crystal animal statues can show a large variety of pets, from a sitting cat to a dog with a bone; from a turtle to a frog; from a horse to a mouse; and from a duck to a dove.
3. Stone Animal Statues
Who would not love a playful stone animal statue depicting their beloved pet? Animal garden statues are perfect presents, as are stone animal statues for the home and office. While some statues - like a sleeping spaniel puppy or an eager dachshund - make you feel warm inside, others - like a cat holding a pair of binoculars up to his eyes, ever watchful for a bird - make you chuckle. Stone animal statues are obtainable for virtually any type of pet, and are distinct to be cherished.
4. Animal Cards
If you have ever owned a pet, you know how unusual they can be. Animal cards present pets in a variety of flaky situations (remember the cat in "Hang in There"?), and are eminently affordable. An animal is sure to bring a smile to your receiver's face.
When it comes to presents for pet lovers, there is nothing more unique that pet-related entertainment. There is actually a music company that makes music for animals, so consider giving a gift of music about and for cats, dogs, or birds. Another great gift idea is to buy a DVD or video that is designed to entertain your receiver's dog or cat. Your friend or dear one can play the DVD or video while he or she is at work or out running errands - guilt free!
It is both original and profound to give a gift that recognizes your recipient's pet as an essential part of his or her life. Pet lovers will value and treasure your gift, whether it is a fine art animal print or an entertaining DVD.
