#1. Personalized Greetings Card:

So, you’re strapped for cash, but you still want to make sure that your friend is getting something thoughtful from you on their big day. Why not create a personalized greetings card for them? A small gesture like this can go a long way and they will truly appreciate that you took the time to come up with something that they will love, even if you’re not able to afford a lavish gift. You could even make a funny dog meme using a photograph of their own dog, with a personalized message to put on the front of their card. It’s sure to put a massive smile on their face!

#2. Photo Gifts:

If you’re stuck on what to get for your pet-loving friend, then it’s worth taking a look at the option of photo gifts. Using just a cute photo of their pet – you can get one from their social media profile – you can create a unique gift for them. It can be something useful like a mug or phone case, decorative like a fridge magnet, or even create cute soft home furnishings like blankets and cushions decorated with their pet’s face. It will be their most prized possession!

#3. Custom Pet Food Container:

If you want to get a gift that’s useful for both your friend and their pet, then a customized pet food container could be a great idea. And if you’re quite creative and enjoy making gifts, this can be a great item to make and requires very little skill. All you’ll need is a large tub or bucket with a lid and some suitable paints. You could get creative by painting it so that it looks like something else, or play it safe by using the colors of your friend’s kitchen.

#4. DIY Dog Beds:

Does your friend have a pooch who loves to play with and chew up their bed? Then don’t let them keep on going to the store and buying a new one every time. Denim is a great material for a dog bed since it’s very durable and long-lasting, so all you need is an old pair of jeans and an old cushion, and you can easily create your own stylish, tough dog bed.

#5. Adopt an Animal:

Many charities have schemes where you can ‘adopt’ an animal by paying some money towards their care. If you have a friend who loves animals and really wants a pet but can’t have one at home, this could be the next best thing. By sponsoring an animal, you’ll provide them with regular updates, and many charities even send out a cute plush toy of the animal you’ve adopted.
