Whether you're a casual, "Oh, bears are my favorite animal" kind of person, or the kind that thinks of their dogs as their first-born and most treasured children and cries at the sight of a baby anything, the holidays are a great time to indulge your creature cravings. My Christmas list usually includes things I've wanted for a long time, but couldn't justify buying myself. However, this list includes lots of pet products that are simply necessary to make yours pets' lives a little better (check out Do Until Animals by Tracey Stewart), but also some home and life items for the person that wants a touch of the animal kingdom in every aspect of their life. Dalmatian pillow and whale bookends? Don't mind if I do.
Coffee. The smell of it, the taste of it, the culture surrounding it...this gift guide is essentially my personal Christmas wish list. You can never go wrong with a cute mug, but there are also some gifts on this guide for the truly coffee-obsessed. Namely, every form of making it, books about it, home decor featuring it...let's just say the coffee lovers' gift guide is meant for the most caffeinated among us.
