Reusable shopping bags are always a good gift. And thanks to Envirosax, the pet lover on your list will be able to display that love while at the grocery store or mall.

Cats love to climb and play, especially inside boxes. The ingenious folks at Catty Stacks devised a system of stackable cubes made of recycled, recyclable cardboard, which can be configured in the design and colors of your choice. After all, who wants a cat toy that looks like a cat toy in the middle of their living room? These could easily pass for modern art. They’re also available in sets of 3 or more, if you don’t want to buy a single cube at a time. (aff)
I chose this with a very specific person on my list in mind. But I’m sure you know someone like her. She loves her dog and considers him to be her fur child. She’ll love dressing him up in this cute kimono from Sckoon organics. It’s available in red and blue, and he’ll be as cute as a button in it.
When pets are eating, the last thing they care about is cleanliness. You may not be able to make Fido or Fluffy keep his food in the bowl, but you can make cleanup a little easier. Any pet lover will appreciate these recycled rubber pet placemats, designed to help keep their feeding area as tidy as possible. (aff)
There are lots of artists who do pet portraits. A quick search of Etsy will tell you that. But Pop Dog Designs is different. They create pop art style pet portraits with patterns, textures, illustrations and icons built right into the image, as shown in the detail above. A wide range of sizes is available, so you can pay whatever you like.
Any pet lover knows how much of a hassle it is to wash a pet bed. They’re big, bulky and a pain to deal with. Solve that problem by gifting a Molly Mutt pet duvet, which is a pet-friendly, heavy cotton canvas cover than can be filled with anything they have laying around — old clothing, pillows, or even their current pet bed. Stuff sack sold separately. (aff)
Your friends who loves his dog or cat will love these personalized mugs, particularly if his dog’s breed is available. You can choose a dachshund, pug, mutt or kitty, and your can have the set of four mugs personalized with a name or message. They are made of porcelain, a completely natural and sustainable material, and the packaging is recyclable as well. (aff)
