’Tis the season for giving (and going to) lots of holiday parties and dinners. Whether you’re the host or the guest, these are the kinds of gifts that every dog lover will appreciate. Stock up, so you’re ready for that last-minute invitation and for your own holiday celebrations.

 

Wine Glasses

Some guests bring the wine, you bring something even better — generously sized wine glasses with an image of a favorite breed. Because they’re made to order, each glass has slight variations, making them almost one of a kind.

Bottle Stoppers

Wine and dogs — not a good combination — unless it’s these ornamental, dog figurine, bottle stoppers. Each stopper features a breed-specific dog head mounted on a knurled wood base and finished with a natural cork stopper.

It features an artistic breed-specific image, and it also has a witty repeating background image that declares, “In our house dog hair is considered a condiment!"
