For the book lover: “If My Dog Could Talk” Personalized Story Book
Buying personalized pet gifts for a junior dog lover? You can’t go wrong with a book about dogs written about your little one’s pup. Shutterfly partnered with children’s books publisher, I See Me!, and author Maia Haag on this adorable book about what life is like from a pooch’s perspective.
Customize it with the dog’s name and an illustrated representation, and then add fun details like family members’ names and your very own message. Got a cat lover in your life? Opt for the kitty version, “If My Cat Could Talk”, which is a similar story with a little more catitude, or one of these fantastic gifts for cat lovers.
For the golfer: Custom Golf Club Head Cover
What do you get the person who loves golf (almost) as much as their pet? A custom golf head cover from Petsies. Simply upload a photo of the pet, and six to eight weeks later a plush, airbrushed and faux-fur golf head cover—large enough for drivers and three woods—will arrive on their doorstep. We know this gift for dog lovers will be a hole-in-one on the course.
For the aspiring cook: Custom Face Mash Apron
A dog’s favorite place may very well be in the kitchen, especially when you’re making something irresistible. Even if you want to keep them out while you cook, they’ll be there in culinary spirit with these custom aprons. For personalized pet gifts, it’s a budget-friendly option with a quick turnaround time, and your animal-obsessed family member or friend will think of you every time they make a meal or a batch of homemade dog treats.
For the homebody: My Petsies Pillow
Unfortunately, you can’t take your furry BFF everywhere with you—but now you can at least be reminded of him with this clever, customized pet pillow that’s shaped like your buddy. The photograph of your choice will be printed on both sides of this huggable, cuddly pillow, which is available in three different sizes. Does your friend also love to cuddle with their pup?

For the jewelry lover: Personalized Pet Necklace
Having your prized pet transformed into a piece of jewelry is a lot more affordable than you might expect.

For the memories: Mixbook Pet Book by Black Lamb Studio
Photo books always make fabulous presents, whether you’re creating them for yourself or your loved ones. And we’d venture to say they’re even better, or at least more surprising when they’re created to commemorate the special pet in someone’s life.
These Mixbooks are available in a dog or cat format, as well as various shapes, sizes, finishes and cover styles. Each book offers adorable illustrations and quips (“meowtains of love” and “pawsome” to name a few), but most importantly, lots of photos. Proudly display it on your dual-functioning dog crate side table.
For the toy lover: The Original Plush Cuddle Clone
While pricier than other items in our roundup, this completely custom creation is totally worth it for the right person. It’s the stuffed animal version of your pet, and you seriously won’t believe how realistic it is. Handcrafted from high-quality faux fur, it’s oh-so-cuddly. Just keep it away from your actual pets, as they might think it’s a chew toy. Instead, keep your dog happily occupied with these indestructible dog toys that even Fido can’t break.
It’s also a thoughtful way to memorialize pets. Senior Shopping Editor Caroline Lubinsky explains: “I wanted a way to ‘store’ my dog Amy’s collar and sweater when she passed and this is perfect for that.”
For the fashionista: Plaid Padded Dog Harness
Sometimes the best personalized pet gifts are the most practical ones. Dapper is the word you’ll use to describe your pup when he wears this stylish plaid harness. Select the thread color of your choice, have their name or monogram embroidered on the front and they’ll be the envy of all the dogs on the block. Don’t own a harness? It’s high time to get one, especially for dogs who tend to pull on the leash. Here are more of the best dog harnesses for every kind of pup.
For the colder weather: Pet Embroidered Sweatshirt
Kyndall and Jake Chambers custom embroider each of these adorable sweatshirts, helping pet lovers keep their beloved animals close to their hearts.

Rid your shirt of any pet hair with one of these handy pet hair removers.
For the sentimental type: Custom Nose Print Necklace
“Happiness starts with a wet nose and ends with a tail,” is a popular quote for pet lovers. Delight any pet fanatic with this one-of-a-kind keepsake, custom-made by artist Kaleen Wolf. The jewelry designer mails a non-toxic molding kit along with instructions and crafts each pendant from an impression of the animal’s snout.
For portrait lovers: Cuddle Clones Pet Portrait Canvas
Commission a custom portrait of your fur baby with the help of Cuddle Clones. File this under personalized pet gifts that are super simple to buy: just upload a photo and then pick the background. In two to three weeks, Fido or Fluffy will be turned into a 12 by 16-inch work of art.
For the functional shopper: Orvis Side-Release Buckle Collar and Leash
