Have you met my sweet goldendoodle pup, Mona?
She was quite the model for my recent professional organizing project and has been helping me in front of the camera since she was only a few months old! Just look at her pose in this video clip I did for Brite Lite. TOO CUTE.
And yes, I’m that dog mom who has an Instagram Highlight dedicated to her pup. You know you wanna watch it!
Mona is more than just a gorgeous prop, stylish model, and adorable furry photo assistant. She’s a rescue pup who’s full of joyful energy. She is a friend to everyone she meets and makes the whole neighborhood smile on our daily walks. She gets me out of bed every morning, keeps me company while I work from home every day and keeps me active with multiple walks and sometimes runs per day! Her running record is 5 miles!
If you have a dog lover in your life to shop for this holiday season, or you’re a doggo-obsessed person (like me) looking to treat themselves with a gift, check out my gift guide for dog lovers below!
1. Dog Mom Tri Color Fleece Sweatshirt
We’re all about cool loungewear these days, right? Whether you wanna jazz up your WFH look or stay warm during your next walk with your dog, you can throw on Bub’s & Betty’s Dog Mom fleece sweatshirt. Long enough to wear with leggings, fleece-lined, and a unisex fit make it the ultimate cozy sweatshirt!

Bring a little bling to your walks with this awesome prismatic rainbow braided collar. Perfect for the friend or loved one with a new pup, or to help them show their pride!
3. Megan Carn Dog Playing Cards
Just look at the illustrations and colors on Megan Carn’s colorful set of playing cards! I adore Megan Carn’s bright, whimsical artwork, and I love that you can have it on something other than wall art! And I spy a goldendoodle in this set…
4. Goodboy x Sock Fancy Face Mask and Bandanna
Wearing a face mask to protect yourself and others around you doesn’t have to be boring! Make it stylish and matchy-matchy: Goodboy x Sock Fancy’s face mask and matching bandanna set in four different patterns ensure you and your pup step out in public safely…but with style.
5. Custom Stitched Pet Patch
Jazz up your favorite canvas tote bag or denim jacket with a custom pet patch from Daily Disco. You provide them with a favorite photo of your pup. They’ll draw it and stitch it, and then you’ll get an adorable patch that looks just like your dog!
6. Cold Nose Christmas Card
Who doesn’t love a goldendoodle on a Christmas card?! This adorable card from Thimblepress will definitely be making its way into our holiday stationery rotation.
7. “Ask Me About My Dog” Desk Sign
Come on. You know you want to! This teal desk sign from Paper Source is perfect for dog parents who love any excuse to talk about their pets. Or whip out their phone to show you dog photos!
8. Prismatic Leash
To go with that adorable new collar, this awesome prismatic leash comes in different lengths for your loved one’s dog’s size. The company that sells it, Found My Animal, supports animal welfare and rescue organizations — and has a whole section of their website dedicated to helping facilitate direct pet adoptions!
9. Pet Portrait Pillow
If your custom felt patch isn’t enough, go bigger with a custom designed pet pillow by HelenPennyShop on Etsy! Send in a photo of your dog and you’ll get a hand illustrated, digitally printed, squishy velvet lookalike of your pet in pillow form.
10. Wild One Poop Bag Carrier
If you have to pick up your dog’s poop, why not make it stylish? (And let’s not get started on people who don’t pick up after their pups. You’re giving us all a bad name!) These fun, colorful bag dispensers clip easily to your dog’s leash. I personally love the blush one.
11. “I Hope You Like Doodles” Doormat
You need this doormat if you have a doodle like my Mona. You can see mine in action on Instagram. Like all of their cute doormats, each doodle doormat from Benson Threads is handpainted and custom made. Plus, most of their items ship free in the U.S.!
