Great Gift Ideas for People that LOVE Labrador Retrievers and Other Dogs!

Updated on March 23, 2011

Labrador Retrievers are wonderful, fun loving dogs! In fact, they are one of the most popular family dogs not only in the United States of America…but around the world as well! Labradors are cheerful, loyal, energetic, adorable dogs…and they are also wonderful with children! If you are searching for a gift for someone…and you happen to know that they love Labradors…then why not buy them a Labrador related gift?

I own three dogs and I truly appreciate it when someone buys me a gift that makes me think of one of my hounds. Just this past Christmas, my mom made a donation in my name to a Beagle rescue group (in honor of my Beagle, Bunny Roo). What a wonderful gift! Not only did she make a donation that will help other Beagles…she truly touched my heart by supporting a charity that I simply love. Along with the donation, my mom also gave me a Beagle coffee mug (I'm also addicted to coffee!). I love receiving gifts that are personal…they make me feel special and well loved!

Great Gift Ideas for People that Love the Labrador Retriever!

Labrador Retriever Books

Books are wonderful gifts. I have a bookcase full of books about dogs and cats…some of which I use for reference while others are inspirational and touching. I especially cherish the dog and cat books that I received as gifts (my nephew gave me a Border Collie coffee table book that is extra special and I will most certainly keep it forever). If you know of someone that loves Labradors, consider the books below. I guarantee they will appreciate your thoughtfulness!

Labrador Retriever Gifts for Women

Women can be difficult to buy for. However, if the woman that you need to purchase a gift for is a dog lover (more specifically…loves Labrador Retrievers) then you are in luck as there are MANY Labrador gifts that are perfect for women. From artwork to picture frames…the selection is huge! Most women are very sentimental and will appreciate the fact that not only did you purchase her a gift…you purchased one that is extremely meaningful! Check out some of the great gift ideas below!

Taking GOOD photos of dogs can be difficult!

For the Dog-Loving Photographer in Your Life!

A few months ago my wife (who just so happens to love photography) was trying to take some photos of our dogs. Needless to say, she gave up after only thirty minutes. As you may or may not know, photographing dogs (and kids!) can be extremely difficult. First of all, they don't understand what you are trying to do and second, well, they have short attention spans! If you know of someone that enjoys photography and also enjoys taking pictures of their dog…then why not combine the two! There are several different books available that teach how to photograph animals…more specifically dogs! If you are feeling especially generous…why not also give them a dog picture frame. The book and frame combined make a special and meaningful gift!

Labrador Retriever Gifts for Men!

Buying a dog related gift for a man can be some-what tricky. After all, most men are not as sentimental as women tend to be. This is not to say that men don't love their dogs…however, it is important that you know a little about the man you are buying for BEFORE spending your money! For example, though my brother loves his Labrador…I don't really see him wearing a tie with Labradors all over it. Get my drift? In any event, there are many dog related gifts out there that men will enjoy!! Below are a few of my favorites!

No matter what type of dog the person you are buying a gift for has, they will most likely appreciate any dog related gift that you pick out. Just the fact that you took the time to buy something that has a special and important meaning in their life will be truly appreciated.

      Since I love my dogs (and my two cats) very much, any gifts that would add to either fun time with them or make life easier would be welcome. And, with V'Day just around the corner any man that thought enough to bring a gift that would make my pets happy would surely win my heart! Thanks for the nice ideas! Happy Writing!
