A Gift Basket For Man's Best Friend

You have given almost everyone a gift, how about giving your best friend a present, too? I mean giving someone's pet dog a gift basket. Got qualms on how to go about the putting together of one dog gift basket for your dog-lover pal? Here's some simple tips or ideas that won't cost you much:

How about a dog gift basket for more TLC for your friend's dog?
One can never go wrong with a spa gift basket that will surely help your buddy pamper his or her pet. Aside from the thoughtfulness on caring for your friend's best pet pal, the benefit of a nice smelling dog is a plus, too. Here's how to create that pat-worthy dog spa gift basket:

Select quality dog grooming goods. Look for products with labels that indicate the ingredients. Products with the owner's fave scents should be considered also. A dog shampoo and conditioner, a complementing pet perfume, a dog hair brush or detangler can also be a good option, too, especially if the dog is a long haired one. Some balm for the dog's paw pads, an ear cleaner, a nail clipper, and other pet care products can be nice additions to fill your dog gift basket with.

Choose a basket or container for the products. Flea markets or garage sales can be good places to see when you're looking for excellent rustic baskets or containers to place the dog grooming products in. A tote that is waterproof may be a good alternative, too. Choosing a color that will complement the dog owner's house might just make your dog gift basket one great home decor thus more appreciation for your thoughtful gift. Just make sure that all the products will fit comfortably. Now if you found a big basket, including a dog towel to fill out the large basket is one great tip to follow. Shredded paper can be an alternative filling also.

Top the gift basket for the dog with a toy that the nice little fellow can play with while enjoying the water. Dog grooming books can be particularly helpful to newbie dog owners. So you might want to include that in your dog gift basket, too.

Cover the gift basket with a cellophane. Choose either a clear or a tinted cellophane to cover your dog gift basket with. This will add to the put-together look of the dog gift basket and will eliminate the awkward look of the odd shapes of the items placed in the basket. Also, the cellophane can serve as a protection against rain.

Don't forget to include a card and a nice big bow. The ribbon can also be used in securing the cellophane wrap. The card will remind your friend how thoughtful you are when it comes to the well-being of his or her pet. If you want to go a bit farther with your efforts on putting together a dog gift basket for your friend's dog pal, search for a card with a humorous theme.

Other substitutes to the spa gift basket idea is putting in gifts that will also benefit the owner such as dog calendars, novelty items with a dog theme, e.g., action figures, mouse pads with a dog picture, T-shirts with paw prints, dog magazines, and photo frames. Including more dog toys such as doggie bones and chew toys for puppies will be more than appreciated, too.

Also, if you prefer the gift items to be more of a surprise, wrap each of the items with a gift wrap that has a dog theme. You can also cover some of the gifts completely with some shredded paper filling to add more surprise to the gift basket.

Now you can easily customize a dog gift basket for the delight of your dog recipient and its owner.
