You love your pet — so much so that you even have an adorable picture of them that’s been hanging up for years. But recently, you’ve noticed that it’s starting to fade and get lost amongst all the other wall art you’ve collected. Mementos of the non-human who adores you more than anything in the world are important, so there’s no excuse for letting that faded shot hang any longer. Gift yourself (and Fido) a pet portrait that’s as unique and lovable as they are. Whether you’re a first-time pet parent or have had Fluffy for years, these buy or DIY ideas are must-haves for any animal lover.
1. Adam Regester Art and Illustration Pet Portraits on Canvas ($86): Don’t trust yourself with a permanent marker and blank canvas? For under $100, this talented artist will sketch a sweet illustration of your very own four-legged friend.
3. Hadley Clay Studio Custom Pet Mug ($45): Start every day with a cup of joe and Fido. It’s the perfect desk accessory, and it can help wake you up at home too.
4. Dani Ives Felted Wool Pet “Paintings” (available in March): These little hoop artworks may be small, but just like the pets they depict, they are mighty.
5. Minky Moo Ceramics Cat Planter ($65): Feeling more minimalist and abstract? Grab this planter for a less explicit nod to your fave feline.
6. Little Rhody Design Co. Custom Pet Pillows ($58): Is your little one at the vet’s office and you’re missing their furry body? Here’s the next best thing, and it’s shed-resistant.
8. DIY Pet Portrait Tote: This item is one that is often overlooked: the reusable grocery bag (or everday tote, if that’s more your jam). Regardless of how this DIY tote is used, you have to admit it’s nice to have a guard dog (or cat) always on duty. (via Julep)
9. Hadley Clay Studio Custom Pet Bud Vase ($30): This small bud vase is a great way to bring a pet portrait to the office (or your office desk at home) without going full-on Legally Blonde by framing a bedazzled picture of your pooch.
10. Kayleigh Radcliffe Pet Portrait Bauble Hanging Decoration ($61): Feeling bold in your decor choices this year? Pick up this hanging bauble head. Of course it would be a great ornament come holiday season 2016, but you can also hang it in the entrance of your apartment for an unexpected, albeit slightly intimidating, 3D art piece.
11. Karren Garces Pop Art Pet Portrait Wall Clock ($30): Keep those “be on time” resolutions with a clock that’s so adorable, you just can’t help but stare at it.
