15 Handmade Gifts for Animal Lovers

  • 2 of 5

Coasters from the “bad dog” series feature dogs doing basically the exact opposite of whatever is being asked of them. Set of four corkboard ceramic coasters will, if nothing else, save you from rings on the furniture. Made in England. Printed in Canada.


This hand-crafted clay shaker set is perfect for the friend who loves both the felines and the puppies. Karen and Stephen Steininger’s shakers are made in their native Iowa.


Get this: a handmade blueprint for your animals breed! Too cute. Get your friend’s favorite dog or cat breed and pay tribute to the feline or canine in their life. The schematics are sure to interest the pet owner, and the midcentury blueprint design by animal architect I.M. Paws (teehee) is sure to delight. Each print gives a detailed illustration of the breed along with written stuff about their origin and temperament. Each piece is printed on archival-quality Epson Ultra Premium Matte Paper and given a distressed finish, to create the look of an authentic, vintage blueprint. Made in California. Print comes mounted with acid-free archival board, and framed. Don’t see the needed breed? If you email with what you’re looking for, they’ll email you if it becomes available.
