One of the best homemade gift ideas for pet lovers is simple, but will be very much appreciated. Remember when you were younger and would make your family and friends homemade coupon books as a gift? The same thing can be done for any pet lovers on your gift list this year.
Instead of giving a coupon for a free hug or a free dinner, give the pet lovers on your list a homemade coupon book for animal related activities. Some great ideas for this are; free pet sitting, free pet walking, cleaning out the litter box, cleaning up that mess Fido made, bathing a pet, feeding a pet, even taking the pet and its owner out for a relaxing day at the park. The ideas are endless. Pet lovers will love this gift because not only are you giving them something useful, but you’re also including their animal friends. The givers will love these homemade gift ideas because of how simple, yet enjoyable they are for pet lovers.
This is a very easy homemade gift to create. All you need is some paper, markers, creativity, and anything else you happen to have lying around the house. To start, take a piece of paper and cut it into a couple small squares. This will be your homemade coupon. Then, write your gift ideas on the sheet of paper. One great thing about this homemade gift is that you can make as few or as many as you’d like. If you really wanted to, you could make a coupon for every day of the year, or as few as one or two.
Once you’re done writing down your homemade coupon ideas for pet lovers, you can decorate the paper with anything you happen to have lying around the house. Scrapbook paper, glitter, crayons, stickers, even old magazines can be cut up and used to make beautiful collages around your homemade gift.
Once you’ve finished making all your coupons, you can either tape them together, staple them, even cut a small hole in the paper and tie them together with a ribbon.
These coupon books make great homemade stocking stuffers for the pet lovers on your list. If you would like to make it an even more personal gift, wrap the coupons in a small box and include a treat for both the pet and the pet lovers. Great ideas for pets include dog biscuits, catnip, chew toys, or a gift certificate to Petland. For the human owner, you could give them coffee, tea, their favorite candy, or a gift certificate to a movie of restaurant.
You will need to be careful about what you include in your package. For example, coffee, chocolate, and raisins are all very harmful for dogs to eat. If the pet lovers on your gift list has a canine companion, you might want to try some more dog friendly ideas. Try tea instead of coffee, hard candies instead of chocolate, and peanuts instead of raisins. This will help make sure that both the pet lovers and their pets have a happy holiday season.
The best part about this homemade gift for pet lovers is how simple, yet versatile it is. The ideas are endless. Whether you have pet lovers on your list with rabbits or horses, you’ll be able to give them a great holiday gift. It’s also easy enough to make that even young children could help. Any recipient who loves their pet will greatly appreciate the personal touches you give it and also the thought that went into creating it. You can’t ask for a better gift than that.
