When it comes to gifts for pet owners, the world is your oyster. We’re excited to share our curated list, which highlights local Vancouver and Canadian businesses!
Christmas Gifts for Pet Owners
EDIBLE GIFTS FOR PETS OWNERS (AND DOGS, TOO) | Monkey Peanut Butter
Available at Edible Canada Retail Shop on Granville Island
Believe it or not, Vancouver’s favourite peanut butter comes in numerous human and dog-friendly varieties. Monkey Peanut Butter started in East Vancouver and is now sold across Canada!
HOME DÉCOR | Owl Creations
Parliament in Gastown, Vancouver
Pet people aside, Parliament is one of our favourite local shops for gift idea inspiration. The chic space is nestled in Gastown and filled with tasteful touches for your home. We loved this Owl Tea Set that can pair with the Owl Pepper Shakers that Parliament also stocks. Who can resist those eyes?!
HOME DECOR | Dog pillows
Make Vancouver on Granville Island
How adorable are these Pooch Pillows from Make Vancouver? This colourful store on Granville Island gives you the freedom to customize your own pillow with a design of your choice!
EXPERIENCE | World’s Best Food Truck Tour
Gift Certificates by Vancouver Foodie Tours
Our World’s Best Food Truck Tour is a certified Canadian Signature Experience. Our delicious roster of food trucks are well-loved by locals, but we often meet up with Gastown, a little French Bulldog, along the way! Keep your eye out – he’s a regular at Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck!
SUBSCRIPTION FOR PETS | Barkbox Plan
Pets and pet owners will rejoice together with this gift! Barkbox Delivery Plans can be purchased in 1, 3, 6, or 12-months. Each box is catered according to your dog’s size and includes a selection of toys, healthy treats and innovative gadgets! As a feel-good bonus: 10% of Barkbox profits go to shelters and rescues around the U.S. and Canada!
APPAREL | Catfe T-Shirts
Catfe.com (Cafe coming soon to Vancouver)
Catfe is a work-in-progress in Vancouver, but they’re waiting for city approval for a cat lover’s dream: a cafe serving cat-themed treats and a shop filled with crafty meowchandise — all in the company of feline friends. For now, we can purchase Catfe t-shirts online!
