What does one gift an animal lover? There are plenty of options available now from readymade gifts, to handmade ones and gifts that can be customized to add a personal touch. The following is a simple list of some great gifting options for your animal loving friends or family members.

  • Personalized cushion/ pillow covers, coffee mugs and pet accessories: These may sound common. But you can always add your special touch to these gift items by customizing them to include the photo of your friend’s pet or favourite animal.
