Collectable Yorkshire Terrier Souvenirs - Gifts for Yorkie Lovers

Updated on March 20, 2011

Yorkshire Terrier

The very first small dog and indoor dog that I was ever allowed to have was a Yorkie, and 10 years later, I'm not sure if I'd ever have any other small breed dog other than a Yorkie or Yorkshire Terrier mix. These small dogs are full of energy and have a fun and spunky temperament. Yes, they can be considered a fru-fru dog, but once you see a Yorkie in action, your mind will change.

This breed is generally kept with long hair, but can be given a short cut as well, which is preferred by most yorkshire terrier lovers just because it's easy to manage.

Yorkies are a great breed that are typically one person dogs. You'll find that this breed is one of many who will choose one person in the house to bond with and protect, which just may make the other members of the house hate the breed, but a Yorkie Lover is a Yorkie Lover and there's just nothing you can do about it.

When shopping for a yorkie lover, definitely keep in mind some of the following ideas.

Yorkshire Terrier Collector Plate

Collector's plates can be priced as low as $10, but can be found as high as $50 or more. These plates make great collector's pieces, as well as lovely decoration for any home. Being that you can find collector's plates featuring Yorkshire Terriers, you'll find that they can make great gifts, too, as well as a collection piece.

You'll find plates in different sizes, but most common around 8 to 10 inches in diameter. The plates come in a wide variety of images and designs. Just remember to make sure that the plate comes with a wall hanger or a stand.

Yorkshire Terrier Painting

Artwork is always a good gift to give. You can find many sizes of paintings, art mediums (paint, pencil, oils, etc.), and you can find many different designs and images. The price of the art will generally depend on the size of the piece, the artist, and the rarity of the piece. Sometimes you can find lovely paintings of Yorkies as low as $10, but a lot of the really nice pieces will be at least $50, which still isn't overly expensive.

Sometimes, you can find sellers who will even personalize the painting for you by adding a line or two or personalization. This will cost a little more in most cases, but it will add uniqueness to the art that will make it more special and cherished to your Yorkshire Terrier lover.

You can find paintings, drawings, and old posters that feature Yorkies, all of which make great artwork to give as a gift.

Yorkshire Terrier Jewelry

Jewelry is a great gift for women and girls. You'll find that you can purchase tons of different styles of Yorkie charms and jewelry. In most cases, the charms will be featured on a bracelet or necklace, but sometimes you can purchase the charms individually, and in these cases, you may want to make a unique bracelet or necklace so that the jewelry is truly one of a kind.

You can find play jewelry, costume jewelry, and vintage jewelry featuring Yorkies. You just have to search a little bit. eBay is probably the best place to find these type of jewelry with a breed specific theme.

Yorkshire Terrier Statue

Statues and figurines are great gifts for Yorkie lovers because they come in so many options. You can find Yorkshire Terriers with short hair and long hair, puppies, adult dogs, Yorkies in teacups, Yorkie nativity scenes, and so many other Yorkshire Terrier poses and personality traits.

Depending on the size of the figurine and what its made out of, the price will vary. Some Yorkie statues may be as low as $10 or $15, but others may be a little higher depending on the size, style, material it's made out of, artist, etc.

You can find indoor figurines and outdoor statues that any Yorkshire Terrier Lover will like.

Yorkshire Terrier Coffee Mug

Coffee cups are great gifts and they're usually pretty cheap. You can find them as low as $10, but depending on the size and style of the cup, it may be more expensive. Coffee cups are perfect because you can find them in tons of different styles, sizes, and images. They're perfect for coffee drinkers or non-coffee drinkers because you don't have to drink coffee out of the coffee mug.

Because coffee cups come in a variety of sizes and styles, you'll find that the price will vary from about $5 for a smaller, more simple cup to over $15 for larger and more decorative mugs.

If you can, you may want to see if you can even have the coffee mug personalized with the receiver's dog's name. If you can, you may even consider getting a picture of your Yorkie lover's dog(s) and having it put on the coffee cup. You'll find that it's always a winning gift if you can find someone who can personalize the gift with a picture.

Personalized Yorkshire Terrier Gift

Personalized gifts are so much better than just picking out a plain jane gift at the store. When you have a gift personalized, the receiver knows that you were really thinking about them. You can have so many different things personalized, from apparel, ornaments, labels, cards, decals, magnets, etc.

There are many sellers who offer personalization for free or a small added fee, but if you can get it all done with the same person, you'll find that you're going to save a good bit of money. Depending on what you end up getting, you may pay as little as $5 for a personalized magnet or as much as $15 for a shirt or sign.
