How about a gift from the Barktorialist. The Los Angeles-based blog for people who love fashion and their pets equally has just launched an e-commerce store full of original bow-wow gifts.
To rest on the mantle, the pet portraits. The Regal Beagle design service takes a photo of your darling and in two weeks, sends you a proof of it transposed it onto an Old Masters painting of your choice. Next you’re sent a portrait (from $170), stretched on canvas, of your pooch, pussycat or parakeet as the Mona Lisa or King Henry II.
Perhaps a classic gift of jewelry? Turn Fifi’s collar into a charm bracelet with witty pendants ($40) that say things like “I will not…eat trash” or “I will…love thy postman.” Or go simple with one-word messages like “Ruler” on charms designed by jewelry designer Kelly Gerber for the Barktorialist.
Or how about a photo-printed dog tag to wear (from $200).
