A few weeks ago, when my friend was visiting us in Florida, she gave me the cutest mug as a gift. It had the quote “Best Friends Forever, Never Apart, Maybe in Distance, But Never In Heart”. It warms my soul that I have friends who are always there for me, even just for a short phone call or text.
I get really nostalgic around the holidays, when I wish we could all be together, singing badly to Christmas tunes, drinking hot chocolate, be with our dogs, and just being thankful we are altogether.
But since life takes us all in different directions, I like to send gifts to my friends I’ve known for 15+ years, just to say “Thank you for being a friend”.
Here are some great gifts for every one of your dog-loving friends will love, no matter the cost. Enjoy!
Gifts Under $10
Just because they’re less expensive, doesn’t mean they’re any less gift-worthy. Perfect for group gift exchanges, or when you want to put something nice in the mail.
I Pawsitively Love You Card
Now you may think, “A card?! That’s not a gift!” Hear me out. One of my favorite things to do is take a card that I really like, whether I bought it or got it in the mail, cut it, and put it in a frame. Cards are usually only $5 or less, and a 5 X 7 frame is usually under $10 (here are some frames I like). It’s sentimental, unique, and meaningful without breaking the bank. This card is $5 in my shop. You can see other cards here.
