Your dog is probably more like a family member than a pet. Celebrate the events in your dog’s life, such as a birthday or a new littler of puppies, with a basket that you can create at home. Dog gift baskets can be made with a variety of items that make your dog comfortable or that give your furry friend something to play with while they are inside or outdoors.
Start with the base of the basket. An idea would be to use a dog bed to hold all of the items that you’re going to use. You could also put everything in a wicker basket, especially if you’re giving it to someone else as a present. One option is a top dog basket that includes a little bit of everything for the animal. You can include food, treats, bones, clothing and toys. It can be a little more personalized for the animal, including items such as a blanket with the name of the dog or a special toy that the animal likes.
If you or someone you know has a new puppy, then making a basket would be a fun idea to welcome the animal to the home. Add toys that are the proper size for the puppy to chew on, such as a Kong toy that won’t be as destructible as a stuffed animal. You can also include a blanket, a few treats, food to get started on and even a gift card for the new owner to take the puppy for basic immunizations. Coordinate the colors of the items in the basket for the gender of the puppy.
A birthday or holiday basket is fun to make for dogs. Choose items that you know the dog will enjoy, such as a favorite bone or a favorite cookie. You could even make small cupcakes or cookies with a birthday message as long as you use ingredients that are safe for the dog. A picture frame can be included so that you can start a collection of pictures over the years of the dog for yourself or someone else.
