What’s better than sending a thoughtful present? Gifting something that also supports a woman-owned small business. In this year’s gift guide, the Spring team focused on covetable items from our favorite woman-owned businesses (all of which we’ve written about before). Read on for gift ideas for every person on your list, whether they’re a dog parent or not.
We don’t want to brag too much, but anyone with a dog would love our Walk Bag and Leash. It ticks all the boxes our founder Shannon had in mind when creating products for the brand: it’s “beautiful, smart and functional.” Also can't go wrong with our newly launched Springer Wear!
Be sure your giftee is all bundled up on those chilly winter dog walks. This oversized, handknit scarf from Ella Lim’s knitwear company Verloop comes in a fun wavy design in three colorways. (Two of them — coral cobalt and golden olive — even have coordinating dog sweaters.)
Little Beast, started by Jisu Kim, sells some of our favorite dog sweaters and onesies. They also make adorable coats for pups, like this puffer that comes in classic black and a variety of bright reversible options.
If your giftee is a fan of Susan Alexandra’s bright beaded purses and jewelry, they’ll love this cool-girl ornament from the brand. We think the “Pink Poodle” and “Scotty Dog” ones are the best of the bunch, but they also sell lots of other fun designs.
While we’re big fans of Not Pot’s oil (for humans and pets), we think their banana body cream also makes a nice gift. It’s formulated with banana extract, niacinamide, magnesium, and cannabis sativa oil, so it’s both nourishing and calming. Plus, Kati Holland’s company helps pay for someone’s bail every month through their partners with organizations like The Bail Project and The Minnesota Freedom Fund.
Liven up your giftee’s home with this set of sustainably made hand sewn napkins that also cut down use of paper towels. The brand, founded by Janean Mann, partners with an all-female sewing co-op to help support them and their families.
Trinity Mouzon Wofford started her company Golde as a way to make superfoods more accessible to all. This vegan hot cocoa mix is perfect for the holidays, and it’s packed with mood- and collagen- boosting benefits.
Love Thy Beast, founded by Tiziana Agnello, makes doggy snowsuits that are both functional and fashionable. They also sell pet deodorizing candles, like this lavender and cedarwood blend, hand poured by True Hue in Minneapolis.
Dog beds can also double as decor. Refresh their space with a stylish new checkered dog bed (or cover). All of Lay Lo’s durable covers are made from recycled PET bottles, so they’re good for the planet, too.
