|Dog-themed Conversation Hearts Valentine | $4 | Pet Scribbles|
We are fast approaching Valentine's Day, but you still have time to get your special someone a unique gift. Think outside the box - and in this case I'm talking about boxes of chocolate - and surprise your beloved with a thoughtful alternative to the usual candy, flowers, and mass-produced jewelry.
Is your Valentine a dog lover?
You can find a variety of handmade gifts for dog lovers on Etsy. Just by doing a few simple searches - such as "dog lover gifts" or "Valentine gifts for dog lovers" as just two examples - you will see there are many dog-themed gifts that you definitely won't find at the big-box stores.
Here is just a sampling of the handmade gifts for dog lovers you can find on Etsy . . .
|Dachshund Dog Tiny Encaustic Art | $23 | Susan Najarian|

Many of the dog lover gifts you come across, such as some of these examples, can be personalized in some way. Personalization is hot right now, trend wise, because it enables you to give a gift customized just for that special someone.
Oh - and if you are the dog lover, you can accidentally keep this page up on your screen to drop some hints!
And one more thing - shameless plug time! - consider one of my handmade dog-centric cards to go along with your gift, such as the one at the top of this page, or the cards you see to the right of this post in the sidebar. (And thanks for your consideration, too!)
