Gifts for Pet Lovers

If you know me, you know that I LOVE dogs. I have two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, and I think they're the sweetest dogs in the whole world. Pudge and Ellie would like everyone to know that they're working on their bad habits. They can't help it that they like to lick legs... you all make it very hard for them to restrain themselves when you wear that smelly good lotion. They are also trying not to jump on our guests. Here is a photo from our Christmas card shoot last year. Ellie is showing off in her Mrs. Claus costume.

I know that you are probably close to someone who adores their pet, so I thought I would post some gifts that they would love to receive for Christmas. Petsmart has tons of stuff online that you can't find in stores. They have mugs, t-shirts, key chains, socks (for humans and dogs), ornaments, calendars, journals, and the Monopoly Dog Lovers' Edition for only $29.99! They also have Charity Wrapping paper with Kitty Cats on it... proceeds go to charity! I love the little Cat photo holder for only $9.99! has this super fun Dachshund Salt & Pepper Set for only $14.95. SO adorable. They also have these unique Pet Stockings for the same price! If I had a cat, I would want the Diva Delights Fashionista Apron. SO cute! So are the Cattitude i-Pots!

If you want to buy your dog a Christmas present, I would go with any treat from Three Dog Bakery. They even have a Holidog Sampler full of Christmas cookies! Their treats are Pudge and Ellie approved!

I also highly recommend Mrs. Meyers Clean Day pet products. Her Oatmeal Pet Shampoo and Odor Removing Carpet Cleaner are my favorite products. Oatmeal is an important ingredient in pet shampoo in order to keep skin moisturized. Her products are environmentally friendly and have a refreshing scent. Currently, they are giving away their Peppermint Candles with any $30 purchase!

Christmas Photo Sessions

This is my absolute favorite time of the year. I love the anticipation of Thanksgiving and Christmas. I light all of my Gold Canyon fall candles and drink hot tea, hot cider, and coffee. I also start brainstorming ideas for Christmas cards.

Which reminds me... make sure you schedule your Christmas photo session! It's time to place your Christmas card orders. If you're not having a photo, it's still time to work on Christmas cards. If you would like to view the Flossy Christmas Card Catalog, e-mail me and I will send you a copy!

Contact me if you need referrals for Photographers!

I Voted!

Today is election day, so I thought it would be fun to give some Patriotic Christmas Gift Ideas. I went to vote today expecting it to take at least an hour, but I was in and out in 5 minutes! I was excited, but hopefully our neighborhood turns out to vote after work! I am proudly wearing my "I Voted Today" sticker.

It was actually a little difficult to find Patriotic Christmas gifts. One of my searches produced a Peruvian Alpaca Llama (see below). Tell me how that happens. I'm going to go ahead and post the picture just in case someone wants to buy someone a little Llama.

My friend Emily loves Llamas.

I have a few members of my family and many friends who are serving or have been in the military, so I'm all about the gifts that show love to the U S of A. I found some cute stuff. But first, the Llama. You can find it at Cost Plus World Market for $14.99.

JCPenney Americana set of 4 bowls- $19.99

Remember our Troops Ribbon Christmas Ornament- Target -$14.99

Remember our Troops Flag Christmas Ornament - Target -$14.99

Pottery Barn Flag Wall Art - $129

Statue of Liberty Christmas Ornament - Target- $8.99USA License Plate Puzzle - Target -$12.99

This is a book about America's First Presidential Campaign. I haven't read it, so if it's not good, it's not my fault. I thought it was an appropriate recommendation for Election Day!
Find it at Barnes and Noble.

If anyone has an other ideas, let me know!
