Dog Lovers Gift Idea

Jump to recipe!

It’s time to make a really fun gift for all those dog lover’s on your list! This easy to make Dog Lovers Gift Idea can be put together in less than 30 minutes.

Dog Lovers Gift Idea

No matter what type of pet you have or someone you know has – dog, cat, horse, or even goldfish – they are part of the family. After our black lab, Rocky, passed away several years ago, we thought it would be a good idea not to have anymore dogs – wrong.

Rescue Pups

It wasn’t long before we missed having the puppy kisses and snuggles. Then along came Tiki the Rescue Pup and she quickly filled our home with love. And not long after, Jackson, our husky joined the family. They bring us laughter on a daily basis.

Gift Idea for Pet Lovers

Because Mason Jar Gifts are so fun to make, and give – this gift idea for the pet lover in your life is perfect! The treat jar is decorated using the Cricut® Explore Air™ 2. This was my first time using the Cricut, and I have to say, I’m a little obsessed now – my list is growing daily of the projects that I want to make.

The pups made their debut in this fun little video showing you how the treat jar is made.
