We humans may not deserve dogs, but we at least deserve dog-themed gifts. Nice ones. Gifts that are clever and playful and actually look good. Like, really good. Like, so good you’ll need to itemize your will or your descendants will tear each other apart fighting over your dog-themed possessions. They love each other, but as Taylor Swift made clear in her Anti-Hero , grief and greed do unfortunate things to people, especially in the case of this gift guide, when there is a crystal-encrusted Judith Leiber handbag shaped like a Poodle up for grabs.

For the sake of the family, maybe you should just get two of everything. Or better yet, cut the kids out entirely and leave the entire collection to the Smithsonian. A gift to the world, as it were. With a catalog that includes the items below, they’re sure to be thrilled!

Btw, our editors (and their pets) picked out these products. They’re always in stock at the time we publish, but there’s a chance they’ll sell out. If you do buy through our links, we may earn a commission. (We’ve got a lot of toys to buy over here, you know?)

Perfect for the person who wants to keep an eye on their dog when they’re out of the house (to make sure they’re OK, but also just because dogs are cute and fun to watch), the Google Nest Cam can actually alert a user when their pet has entered the room. Videos are full-color, high resolution, and securely stored through your Google account. The Nest Cam is also a lovely little piece of design that fits discreetly and stylishly into any home.

I don’t care what circa 1999 Carrie Bradshaw says; Judith Leiber handbags are absolutely, unequivocally fabulous! They are high kitsch and even higher glamour. And even if you never take it out of the house (though you totally should), its a fabulous little objet d’art that is sure to spark joy every time you see it. In the dog novelty category, Judith Leiber has around a dozen breeds/colorings to choose from, so chances are good that you will find a clutch that bears at least a passing resemblance to your own pup — a wonderful, fitting (and glittering) tribute to your snuggly little friend and an absolutely incredible gift for any dog lover.

colorful dog bed

Can a pet bed make you rethink your entire interior design aesthetic? If it’s a ProbaPaws pet bed, then yes, in fact, it most certainly can. This rectangular bed features abstract, tufted designs in a riot of colors that could only have been chosen by renowned artist Alex Proba, who’s trained in color theory, while the splat-shaped beds are smooth and solid with contrasting borders, making it a perfect purchase for the stylish pet (or pet parent) in your life.
