Our pet's unconditional love is truly a gift from God. Of all the blessings in my life, one of the greatest has been the love from my dogs.

Pros and Cons of Types of Feeding Dish Materials
Some dogs are dainty eaters. Some dogs literally move the bowl all over the room. If you ever place bacon grease on your dogs' food, anticipate that dog dish to move and move often. My dogs would spend up to 10 minutes and return an hour later to make sure they didn't miss a precious drop of that great bacon grease.
If your dog moves the dish quite frequently, the ceramic feeding bowl may not be the best choice. This doesn't rule out this choice for a gift, just not for an every day dish. The stainless steel with the rubberized bottoms are great for the bacon grease toppings. The ceramic look much better in the kitchen on a daily basis. My recommendation is to have one of both. Variety is the spice of life. Hint: never place the ceramic bowl outside - it will move and it runs the high probability of becoming chipped.
Personalize As Much As Possible
When considering that gift, consider the location of the use. As I mentioned the ceramic bowls are beautiful but may not be the best choice for dogs that actively move their dishes. A run or placement underneath helps tremendously.
For my best friend, her new kitchen has a dark slate tile. Her dog is a large black lab who is similar in nature to my retrievers, the feeding dish will walk - you can expect it. So a stainless steel dish with her dogs' name works perfectly.
For a more dainty feeder or a toy dog, the ceramic dish is ideal.
Personalize as much as you can. Check out the photo and text dishes. Also the dish with the insert a photo is practical and very versatile.

Why A Dog Gift? Because We Define Ourselves By Our Dogs
A personalized gift for a loved one's pet is a great gift because we define ourselves by our pets. Oprah Winfrey's quote below is a perfect reflection of an animal owner. We live and breath for our pets, often we take on their personalty. If we raise an animal from a kitten or a pup, that animal will take on our own personality traits. They say people look like their pets - I think we choose our pets for our own personal desire and standard of beauty.

Great Quotes About Dogs - Mutt Related
If you can't decide between a Shepherd, a Setter or a Poodle, get them all ... adopt a mutt!
The intelligence of a Poodle and the loyalty of a Lassie. The bark of a Shepherd and the heart of a Saint Bernard. The spots of a Dalmatian, the size of a Schnauzer, and the speed of a Greyhound. A genuine, All-American Mutt has it all.
My name is Oprah Winfrey. I have a talk show. I'm single. I have eight dogs — five golden retrievers, two black labs, and a mongrel. I have four years of college.
Oprah Winfrey, when asked to describe herself during jury selection
Ay, in the catalogue ye go for men;
As hounds, and greyhounds, mongrels, spaniels, curs,
Shoughs, water-rugs, and demi-wolves, are 'clept
All by the name of dogs: the valued file
Distinguishes the swift, the slow, the subtle,
The housekeeper, the hunter, every one
According to the gift which bounteous nature
Hath in him closed.
William Shakespeare, Macbeth
